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.

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.

Cook until the batter has little bubbles all over the surface and the bottom is golden brown. Gently flip, and cook another couple of minutes, until the bottom is browned.
  6. If you want to prepare the night before, add a little extra baking powder, so it still has some fluffiness.

  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.

Instructions
  1. Slice the chicken into bite-sized chunks. Combine the cubed chicken with the yogurt, lemon juice, garlic, ginger, salt, cumin, garam masala, and paprika and stir until well-coated.
  2. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, or overnight.
  3. Preheat the oven to 500°F (260°C). Line a high-sided baking pan or roasting tray with parchment paper.
  4. Place the marinated chicken pieces on bamboo or wooden skewers, then set them over the prepared baking pan, making sure there is space underneath the chicken to help distribute the heat more evenly. Bake for about 15 minutes, until slightly dark brown on the edges.
  5. Make the sauce: Heat the oil in a large pot over medium heat, then sauté the onions, ginger, and garlic until tender but not browned. Add the cumin, turmeric, coriander, paprika, chili powder, and garam masala and stir constantly for about 30 seconds, until the spices are fragrant. Stir in the tomato puree, tomato sauce, and 1 ¼ cups of water, then bring to a boil and cook for about 5 minutes. Pour in the cream.
  6. Remove the chicken from the skewers and add to the sauce, cooking for another 1-2 minutes. Garnish with cilantro and serve over rice or alongside naan bread.
  7. Enjoy!
Recipe Notes

Original Recipes:  https://tasty.co/recipe/homemade-chicken-tikka-masala

The comments for the original recipe were that the wooden skewers should be soaked to prevent burning, and that there should be more spice.  Since nothing is really spicy that I know of, I increased the seasonings by 50%.

Also, these can be air fried at 350F for 20 minutes, very tender and juicy, but didn't have the charred corners.  And we think maybe our oven runs a bit hot, so do please beginning checking after the first 15 minutes and adjust as needed.

Instructions
  1. In a medium size mixing bowl, add shredded beef and diced onions, mix well and set aside.
  2. In a medium size sauce pan, add the oil, flour, and chili powder. Turn to medium heat and whisk the ingredients together.
  3. Continue to whisk as the mixture begins to boil for one minute, then whisk in the water, tomato paste, cumin, garlic powder, and cayenne pepper until smooth. Allow the sauce to come up to a simmer. Once it reaches a simmering boil it will begin to thicken slightly after about 20 to 30 minutes.
  4. Add salt to taste and 1/4 teaspoon sugar, mix to combine and then add about 1/4 cup of sauce to the shredded beef mixture and stir to combine. Set aside remaining sauce for enchiladas.
  5. In a small size skillet, add oil to medium-high heat. Gently add one tortilla at a time and fry to a semi soft stage. Dab each tortilla with paper towels to remove excess oil.
  6. As each tortilla is fried and dabbed with paper towels, stack them to keep them soft for rolling.
  7. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease or spray with a nonstick cooking spray a 9x13 baking dish. Set aside.
  8. Lay (one at a time) fried tortilla on a flat surface, add about 2 tablespoons shredded beef mixture to the middle of the fried tortilla and top with about 1 teaspoon shredded cheese.
  9. Roll the tortilla tightly and place in the baking dish (seam side down). Repeat until all 12 tortillas are filled. (For best results, line the enchiladas into two rows of 6).
  10. Pour the enchilada sauce evenly over the top of the filled tortillas, and then add remaining shredded cheese evenly to the top of the sauce and top with the sliced olives.
  11. Cover baking dish with foil and bake in preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes, or until bubbly and hot. Serve with sour cream, optional.
Recipe Notes

Original Recipes:  https://www.geniuskitchen.com/recipe/authentic-beef-enchiladas-523462

This was oddly bland.  Tasted a lot like onion, but that was actually about it.  I'm thinking less onion and need to infuse more chili flavor into the meat.  The shredded beef itself turned out pretty good (see Mexican Shredded Beef recipe), but all together it was just lacking.  That being said, it was fairly easy, and I think it's a good place to start, or if you aren't into or can't eat heavily spiced food it's good as is.  I'll be working on this again, I think.  (3.25.19)
