Baked Fondue

This baked fondue is a winter show stopper. Simple, yummy, and the kids love it. The original recipe can be found HERE.

Cardamum Coffee Cake

This is from either Moosewood or Enchanted Broccoli forest. Snapped this photo before I passed it along to Puckstopper's girlfriend! I looked online and found a link for it HERE.

Chana Masala and things we have recently done with it!

I don't have a recipe for Chana Masala on my blog because it is in my cookbook. My favorite is Madhur Jaffrey's original. Here is Smitten Kitchen's take on her recipe. Chana is a staple in our house and the kids love it. I would recommend a recipe from Aarti Paarti that you can find here: Chickpea Curry for Lil' Bug

Chana Masala Nachos!

Yes this is a Chana Masala pizza but even better is that it has Indian chicken strips on it as well! Yes... click that link... you really want to make Indian Chicken Strips tonight, and tomorrow, and all of next week.

Oooey gooey yumminess!

Chicken with Chutney

We were in Connecticut last weekend celebrating my brothers birthday. We stayed in Madison at my Dad's "Gal Pal" Susan's house. She cooked us this lovely chicken on Friday night. Shown by the state of the cards below, this is a well loved recipe. There is an error on the card - the author omitted the 1/2 cup of chutney that goes on it. I will write it into the recipe below, and add that as a garnish, Susan added water chestnuts and pecans for a little added crunch. Yummy dinner loved by the whole family.

 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1/2 cup chutney (Major Greys or better)
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon curry (or more)
1 lemon
freshly ground black pepper

 1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees
2. Place chicken flat in oven dish.
3. Combine mayo and sour cream in a bowl.
4. Stir in the chutney and the curry.
5. Squeeze in the juice from the lemon.
6. Cover chicken with this mixture. If you are adding the water chestnuts or pecans add them here.  Season with pepper.
7. Bake for 20 minutes and Voila! Check meat with a thermometer to be sure it is at 170 degrees.

These pictures don't  do this recipe justice.
I hesitate to even put them on here, but darn, this is a really yummy meal.

I am back in school and bad at blogging
