Instructions
  1. In a small bowl, combine salt, Creole seasoning, paprika powder, onion powder, garlic powder, and flour. Dredge the chicken in the seasoning mixture and shake off excess. Reserve any leftover spice/flour mix for the sauce.
  2. Preheat large saute pan, add olive oil and melt butter over medium-high heat. Cook the chicken tenders until done, about 8 minutes (3-4 minutes per each side). Remove from the pan.
  3. Add 4 tablespoons of butter to the empty skillet and add remaining seasoning mixture into the butter and cook it until flour is no longer raw. Add more paprika and heavy cream into the skillet. Bring to a boiling point.
  4. Lower heat and simmer 3-4 minutes. Taste the sauce and adjust seasoning to your liking.
  5. Pasta
  6. Boil pasta in salty water, drain, but do not rinse. Reserve 1/2 cup of pasta water. If you think the sauce needs thinning, add reserved pasta water to the sauce. Add it slow - as much as you would like to have according to your liking.
  7. Add cooked pasta into the sauce and stir until fully coated. Add chicken into the skillet with pasta to reheat.
  8. Serve with sauce spooned over chicken and pasta, and sprinkled with chopped parsley.

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).
  2. Spread rice in the bottom of a 9×13 inch baking dish; set aside.
  3. In a medium saucepan melt butter or margarine and stir in flour until smooth. Gradually add milk, bouillon granules, seasoned salt, garlic powder and pepper. Stir all together and bring to a boil. Let simmer and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened and bubbly. Reduce heat; add chicken, cheese and sour cream. Stir until cheese is melted. Mix all together and pour mixture over rice.
  4. Melt 1/2 cup butter or margarine in saucepan and toss with crushed cracker crumbs. Sprinkle crumb mixture over casserole. Bake in the preheated oven for 10 to 15 minutes or until heated through.
Recipe Notes

I'm going to make this for my mum, who has food allergies, and is lactose intolerant.  The internet says Velveeta, etc, are generally worse for lactose intolerant people than regular cheeses, so I'm going to try substituting 2% lactose free milk for the milk, and a mix of 3/4 mild cheddar and 1/4 mozzarella.

Recipe Notes

I got this recipe from Stephanie at work.  She brought them for a food day.  They were amazing!  So I got the recipe.  I personally think it's a bit on the sweet side with the cornbread, so I think I'll try using spicy enchilada sauce to start with and see how it works out.  Thanks, Stephanie!

Instructions
  1. Empty salmon into bowl. Remove as much of the bone and skin as you'd like - they are small and edible, so it's just a matter of taste. Crush the crackers with your hands as you put them in the bowl with the salmon. Add egg, Worcester, salt & pepper and mix together with your hands. Form 4 patties, making them a bit thick, and put on a plate or small sheet pan to put in the fridge for up to 2 hours before cooking.
  2. Heat skillet with butter/oil to 300F (medium heat). Place patties in, avoid crowding. Cover and let cook for about 4-5 minutes, then flip, cover, and let cook another 4-5 minutes. Internal temperature should be 150-160F.
  3. I like to serve on a plate with just some tartar sauce, but they wold be excellent for sandwiches, too.

Instructions
  1. Put soy sauce, brown sugar, water, Asian sweet-chili sauce, ginger, and pepper in pressure cooker/multi-pot/Foodi. Stir to combine.
  2. Cut pork ribs into 3 pieces and place in cooker.
  3. Cook on High for 30 minutes. Give 10 minute natural release, then release pressure. Pork should be fork-tender. And tasty! Remove to bowl and cover.
  4. Spoon about 1 Tbsp of the hot liquid into a small bowl or container, and whisk in cornstarch.
  5. Set multi-pot/Foodi to sear, or pour liquid to a small pan, and heat to medium until boiling. Add cornstarch mix and whisk. Cook for ~4-5 minutes or until reduced to the desired thickness. Add port back to it to coat and heat. Serve warm on rice or rice noodles, or just whatever sounds good! Can add chopped green onion for garnish if desired.
Recipe Notes

Recipe adapted from:  https://www.tasteandtellblog.com/slow-cooker-pork-roast/

Can also cook for 5-6 hours on low in slow cooker.  Wold work for a roast, also.  In fact, I thought it was a pork loin roast, until it thawed and I opened the package.

Adapt cooking time as needed for larger pieces or different cut of pork.

Instructions
  1. To a medium skillet add paprika, cumin, coriander, turmeric, cinnamon, cayenne pepper and cardamom.
  2. Cook over medium heat until slightly toasted and fragrant, stirring frequently, about 1 - 2 minutes. (In a rush this step can be skipped, it just adds a little more flavor).
  3. In a large mixing bowl whisk together Greek yogurt, oil, lemon juice, garlic, ginger, spices from skillet, and season with salt and pepper (I use 1 1/2 tsp salt and 1 tsp pepper).
  4. Add chicken thighs and toss well in mixture to coat evenly.
  5. Cover bowl and transfer to refrigerator and let marinate at least 3 hours and up to 10 hours.
  6. Preheat a grill over medium-high heat to about 425 degrees.
  7. Clean grill grates and brush with oil.
  8. Grill chicken about 10 - 12 minutes per side for bone-in thighs (5 - 7 minutes per side for boneless thighs), while basting once lightly with oil if desired to reduce exterior drying, until chicken registers 165 on an instant read thermometer in center near bone.
  9. Let rest a few minutes off heat, serve warm with cilantro.
