This recipe is from the October 2006 issue of Cooking Light. It's very tasty! The original recipe calls for using breast halves, drumsticks and thighs. I just used skinned, boneless breasts. Also, used olive oil instead of cooking spray. This is their description - " This flavourful Ethipian-inspired chicken stew uses Berbere, an Ethiopian spice blend. Store extra spice mix covered in a cool, dark place for up to two weeks. Use leftovers on Salmon, flank steak, or chicken for fiery flavour. Serve with basmati rice. **prep time includes marinating time
*Additional tip*- MaidinAfrica suggested swirling a bit of plain yogurt on top just before serving so we tried that - it's really good and the contrast of colours swirled together makes for a very pretty presentation!
The easiest way to prepare this sandwich is to buy frozen cooked baby shrimp. Defrost them in the refrigerator overnight and drain before marinating. The cucumber slices are salted before using to draw out their juices, which would otherwise make the sandwich soggy.

Cook time is "resting" time for cucumbers.
I needed some pineapple preserves to make Ang1102's Recipe #168803. No problem I thought, I'll just pick some up at my corner store. No luck, They didn't have any so I thought no problem, I'll just get a recipe off of zaar. No luck!, I went on a search and was attracted to this recipe because it only uses 2 ingredients and looked easy. Boy did I get lucky with this one! From Food Down Under. EDIT: Thanks to Diana, I was able to change the title to award winning! Check her review for making these preserves even better!
This is simply lean beef and kidney beans in a delicious cinnamon and cumin-scented stew, with lots of parsley and chives and a splash of lemon juice. The unusual color is from turmeric, and it's best served with rice.
From Culinary Tour magazine. Chicken broth can be substituted for the vodka if you wish. This is fun to serve to guests because they are each given a "shot glass" of dressing for pouring over the salad! No ID required.
Based on a Cooking Light recipe, this has been modified to suit my own tastes. The sweet onions and balsamic vinegar create a lovely contrast in flavors that pair together so well. I usually serve this with couscous or brown rice with a green vegetable such as zucchini or spinach. Reheats well for lunch the next day.
If you read through my recipes you will find a number of recipes using lentils. Over the past year or so of eating a healthier diet I have come to know and enjoy lentils a great deal. So, when I see a new recipe involving lentils I like to add it to my collection. This one I found in the Winter 2008 version of the BBC Easy Cook magazine. The recipe says that it is able to be frozen.
The great thing about corn fritters is that they are perfect anytime of the day. Have them at breakfast with a little wilted spinach, some bacon and roast tomatoes. Serve them at lunch with a salad of arugula, feta and salmon. Use them for dinner as the base to any seafood or chicken dish. When entertaining serve mini-fritters as a canape topped with a little smoked chicken and mango salsa. The options are endless and I trust that once you give this recipe a try, you will soon be adding to the list of endless possibilities. This recipe makes about 12 fritters so depending on what you are using them for adjust it accordingly.
