If I have one, this is my “signature dish”. Had something similar as a bridal luncheon once and over the years it's evolved to be what it is now, a savory, slightly sweet delight to tickle your palate. I've served it to many guests over the years, all with rave reviews. I usually pair it with green beans almandine and rice flavored with chicken stock. The rice soaks up the extra raspberry cream sauce and is delightful.
My friend, a cook at our favorite Japanese restaurant finally gave me this recipe for their fabulous Shrimp Sauce. It's so good we dip our meat and veggies into it and then pour it over our rice too. And yes, it really does have peaches in it.
This chicken stuffed with ham, red onion, parmesan and rosemary is a savory reminder of all things good in the world. With a hint of balsamic vinegar and a lovely rosemary wine sauce it's an impressive dish for your guests and a wonderful addition to your cookbook. *Update: I noted off of one of the reviews that I had originally written to stuff the chicken after it had been cooked. I've corrected the instructions now.
One of my favorite chicken salads is at Rafferty's Restaurants in the southeastern United States. Here's my friend Leslie's take on this light delicious salad. Serve it up with some warm croissants and some fruit.
My mom used to make this delicious Polynesian recipe when I was a kid. I just love the different toppings you can add to this basic coconut curry base. You can make it as spicy or as sweet as you want.
This is my version of the popular dish with a bit of Thai mixed in and using mostly ingredients that I have around the house. There are lots of things you could add to this... for example celery and red pepper

Chow mein noodles are often labeled chuka soba. If you can't find them in the Asian section of the supermarket, substitute spaghetti or linguine. Chop and measure ingredients while you wait for water to boil.

If you're not serving this immediately, keep the polenta warm by covering it and placing it over very low heat. Stir occasionally. Mascarpone ensures the polenta's creamy consistency and rich flavor.
Our family loves this. Feel free to play around with the spice measurements, I kinda eye ball it. You could also add turkey sausage to this. It's a hearty delicious meal!
Don't leave out the sun dried tomatoes. The saltiness balances the creaminess of the coconut.
