A Very Happy Mothers Day to all you Mom’s out there. You deserve to be celebrated.
If you love braised meat and spicy then this is going to be your new favorite. Since Goan recheado masala is traditionally used with seafood it was a risk to use it with meats. My husbands regular out of the box cooking experiments, which at most times are successful just gave me the nudge I needed to experiment in cross-continent cooking(not sure if I sound right) but I am sure you get the point 🙂 . This recipe does not use wine but uses a red spicy curry paste made with vinegar and the meat liquid is used to braise the meat. I prefer bone in for added flavor of the bone and marrow but you can do boneless. This spicy braised chicken has multiple uses. You can use it as a side, on…

What’s the difference between ice cream and sorbet?
Sorbet is basically water + sugar + fruit, while ice cream and gelato is milk/cream + sugar + fruit. So the last two are more ‘creamy’, while sorbet is more ‘icy’. You can say that ice cream is a type of gelato, but there still is a difference.

This dressing is also surprisingly easy to make yourself. For years, it was so automatic to just pick up a bottle at the store that it never occurred to me that I could make it myself. Now that I have, I’m more smitten than ever.
It’s time to talk about why allergy requests are so damned important to honor as restaurant employees, and to illustrate just why that point is so crucial, we’re going to use a story from a Behind Closed Ovens submission to drive the point home. Consider this your early Cinco de Mayo* present.
My nine year old daughter is really picky, she’d prefer to eat hot dogs or McDonald’s everyday. But, I’m one of those, “you get what you get and you don’t throw a fit” moms. I don’t do special meals and I don’t do “eat it or starve.” You just eat what I make and you don’t complain. I’m a good cook and I don’t cook food I know my kids can’t stand so I think that’s fair.
So what do you do when you have a cupboard full of tuna and a kid who says tuna is gross? You hide it in a casserole and don’t tell them what’s on it til they’ve ate it.
Enter Tuna Noodle Casserole. I have a base recipe that I twerk depending on what vegetable I have around that day. And my daughter, the picky one, who doesn’t like tuna or vegetables, eats at…
