If anyone's wondering what kind of day today is, it's the kind of day where I put a pot on to boil for pasta, and come back five minutes later to find the pot's hob cold and the one under the chopping board has melted the chopping board and a plastic container-lid.

Meanwhile, a Good Recipe from last weekend. Adapted from Campion & Curtis' In The Kitchen.

In the ancestry of this recipe are a Nigella Lawson dish and a Leanne Brown dish, combined because I really needed to use up both sets of ingredients.

I served this as a side dish to a roast chicken, and then took the leftovers and cooked them into a risotto using the basic recipe I used here. Om nom nom.

This is the curry I made last night (my first attempt at curry and it turned out SO delicious - w00t!) modified from this recipe my dear Katie linked me to. I think I prefer my version. If you have accessibility issues, this is a good recipe to get help with on the prep. My carer did all the peeling and chopping and thus made it possible for me to make this recipe at all.

Accessibility Notes: This is a spoon-eating recipe. You will need to peel and dice potatoes, slice capsicum in small strips, peel and cut ginger into tiny cubes, cut up chicken if yours doesn't come from the store in handy bite-sized strips like mine did, open a tin, stir a full large skillet without slopping over, cook rice, and measure peanut butter out without screaming in frustration (I screamed).

Equipment Needed: A huge deep skillet pan thing or medium huge pot with lid. A wooden spoon for stirring. A ladle for serving. A knife and cutting block and a veg peeler (if you use one) for prep. A tablespoon measurement. A helper is awesome here for the prep.

Tonight I made faux-Moroccan chicken for myself and [personal profile] xtina, based on a Cook's Illustrated recipe that I modified fairly heavily for our various dietary restrictions. It was mild and savory-sweet and delicious. I'll definitely be making this again.

Modifications in case you want to try the original recipe: I used unsalted broth rather than low-sodium, diced raw carrots instead of a can of diced tomatoes, and dates instead of dried apricots. Instead of spicing it up with garam masala I measured in cumin, coriander, and cardamom. I put in half an onion instead of a whole one, and three cloves of garlic rather than four. I left out the suggested 2 Tbsp minced fresh cilantro.

Incidentally, Cook's claims this takes 30 minutes, including prep. They lie. From when I started prep to when I served dinner was almost exactly 1.5 hours. I suppose there are ways I could have been more efficient, but I have a hard time picturing this taking less than an hour.

Omnomnom, this is a fabulous dinner party dish. Unlike most fettuccine recipes, it doesn't use any kind of creamy sauce. Somewhat expensive ingredients (i.e. the shrimp), but the savings in prep and execution time really pay off if you're having guests over. My additions to the original instructions from myrecipes.com are marked with brackets.

Spicy Shrimp and Fettuccine

This dish is an appealing, affordable option for entertaining. We used dried basil in this dish to cut costs, but you can substitute 2 tablespoons fresh basil, if desired. Frozen or previously frozen shrimp is often on sale at supermarkets.

Yield: 4 servings

15 ounce can chickpeas (garbanzos), drained, rinsed
1 medium yellow onion, chopped
8 ounce can no-salt-added tomato sauce
1 Tbsp curry powder
1 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper or to taste (if you have wussy tastebuds like mine you'll want to start with less)

Wow, this is simple but good! read more )

I'm doing up the grocery list for next week's menu planning, and thought I'd share one of my fav vegetarian meals, a Leek, Pepper and Pea "Tortilla" (we usually call it a frittata). It's basically an egg & veggie dish where the eggs are much firmer than in most egg dishes. Also, it has sweet potatoes!

I got this recipe from "You Are What You Eat: The Meal Planner That Will Change Your Life!", by Carina Norris. It's on page 57.

The recipe is typed up with random asides because I'm bitter. I've also got a version without the random asides.

This is actually rather simple for a cook with any experience, but the results are spectacular. Recipe serves between 2 heavy appetites to 4 light ones (or with side dishes).

I adapted this recipe from  one I found online, who knows where anymore.  I adapted it to use what I had on hand and I greatly simplified it from about a dozen steps to just 4 very simple ones.  3, if you don't count cooking the pasta as a step.

This dish is a meal on its own.
