Veggie mish mash.

This is what I do with leftovers:

Mix shredded carrots, cabbage, onions and mushrooms with a cup of mashed potatoes and curry powder, spread thinly onto an oiled cookie sheet or skillet then bake in a hot oven until crisp and golden. Top with hot sauce or salsa and fresh cilantro.


Pressure cooker Tom Yum soup.


Throw in your pressure cooker:

-Chicken legs and thighs

-1 large diced onion

-6 cloves of garlic

-2 cups chicken broth

-1 tablespoon grated ginger

-1 tablespoon grated lemongrass

-Juice of 2 limes

-4-6 hot Thai chilies

-1 teaspoon ground cumin

-1 teaspoon ground coriander

-a pinch of salt


Set to high pressure and cook for one hour. Let depressurize naturally (takes about 10 minutes).

Add 1 diced red pepper and 1 can of coconut milk, adjust seasoning if needed and simmer for 15 minutes. Serve with a handful of fresh cilantro and basil.

Lemon tart with sugar cookie crust.

I’m not a dessert person but when I do indulge in a sweet treat I want it to be lemon flavored. I made this wonderful tart a few weeks ago and have been dreaming about it ever since.  If I remember correctly I loosely followed this recipe
