Chicken Tikka Masala

Gourmet cooking can be so much fun especially when someone else has done the hard work for you.  I am sharing another recipe from Karen’s Spice Kitchen.  Her spice blends are now available at your local meat market.  Entertaining is super easy if you have Karen’s Spice blends on hand with a few staples.

Shrimp Curry

I am a huge fan of Indian food. I had never attempted to make it at home before. I received a spice packet from karen’s spice kitchen. I make Chicken Tikka Masala and it was delicious. After that, I decided to make Shrimp Curry. I love International flavors. This is a gourmet meal you can […]

Zucchini pizza bites

The fresh produce is rolling in. In fact, it’s hard to know what to do when you have so much at once. I have a great idea for the zucchini. Everyone will love this–and don’t tell them, it’s actually healthy for them. One note of interest, this Saturday, there will be farm fresh corn on […]
