Butter Chicken is probably the most popular mainstream Indian meal. It’s a simple recipe where chicken is simmered in a mild fragrant tomato sauce and usually served over rice. It doesn’t take long to prepare and this recipe has ingredients you can find at most grocery stores.
This is not sophisticated but it’s delicious and total comfort food! And it’s a great way to repurpose some leftovers. So next time you’re making mashed potatoes, be sure to add a few extra potatoes to the pot so you have an excuse to make Shepherd’s Pie.
Many people don’t know what to do with an eggplant. Eggplant Parmesan is my favourite way to cook them. I always look forward to getting one in my CSA share so I have an excuse to make this. Yesterday I picked up my last share for the season. Sarah had extra eggplants and said take as many as you like. So I took 5!
Now that local peaches are abundant I thought I would try something based on a recipe my former mother in law made many years ago. She had invited us for dinner and said she tried a new recipe that had sausages and peaches together. I thought to myself, “that sounds awful” but it was really good! Pork and fruit are perfect companions actually. Think pork chops and apple sauce. And sweet plus heat? Besties!
There are a variety of fish species in Lake Erie and pike is one of our favourites. They’re best caught in very cold water so spring is a great time to enjoy some fresh caught pike. You can make Blackened Pike Tacos with any type of fish that’s thick and dense enough to stand up to the blackening process without falling apart.
