  1. This was Weight Watchers?!?!? It was SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO good! Definately making again and again. Served over rice- the fam glommed it down. Thanks for a great waist watcher recipe!
  2. This has become a family favorite we use again and again! We love the bananas and lime. It really adds depth of flavor to the recipe. Spicy and flavorful, but also balanced enough to please less adventurous palates. What a great Thai recipe!
  3. This recipe is a definite pleaser. Even the wife, who doesn't have an exotic pallet, said this one is a keeper. The wife and kids didn't want to try the bananas, so you might want to go with a neutral vegi substitute like carrots, bamboo shoots, etc, or maybe even pineapple chunks, but try this one as is the first time, and then experiment. I think you'll want to add this one into your rotation, even if you are not much into exotics or curries. And its easy to come out as a Thai cook on your first try with this easy to follow recipe. Full-fat plain yogurt also works well.
  4. This was quite good. I used 1T of hot curry paste and 1T of mild curry paste and the heat seemed just about right for us that way. My husband wasn't a huge fan of this one, but I think that curry dishes are an acquired taste. Served over jasmine rice... and like a few others, I left out the banana topping. Thanks for sharing!
  5. Delicious! I've only recently become a fan of chicken, and it's partly due to this recipe! We couldn't find 'creamed coconut', so we used light coconut cream. I'm keen to try dessicated coconut next time, and see how that goes!
