Mum's Sticky Rice

Mum's Sticky Rice

Dec 2, 2006

In our family, we prepare rice for all occasions, so this is a definite must-have for Chinese New Year. My mother combines long-grain and glutinous rice, which makes the dish less sticky. If you can get fresh water chestnuts, use 3/4 cup (175 mL) diced.

''Sure to Please'' Chicken Cacciatore

''Sure to Please'' Chicken Cacciatore

May 12, 2009

I like to prepare dishes for guests that allow me to enjoy their company. In order to do this, I select dishes that can be prepared before the guests arrive and are already cooking while we are enjoying their company. My "Sure to Please" Chicken Cacciatore is a prime example of this. Over time I have made several adjustments to enhance the flavour while at the same time using healthy alternatives (eg. skinless chicken thighs and breasts; I saute ingredients in extra virgin olive oil instead of butter). Because this dish has an Italian flare, so do all the other dishes that I serve before, during and after this meal. I serve an antipasta tray as an appetizer, and toasted garlic bread, a tossed green salad with an oil and vinaigrette dressing, whole wheat spaghetti, and the same wine that is in the cacciatore. For dessert I serve Tiramisu (also made ahead). As a result, most of my work is complete before company arrives. I have shared this recipe with women who say they do not cook and I have received rave reviews from all of them - their guests loved it so much that one man ate the leftovers for breakfast the next morning. I like to make this dish in the summer, when I can use fresh produce from my vegetable garden or from the local farmer's market. My inspiration for this recipe is that I love to cook and entertain. This recipe is full of flavour, easy to prepare and tastes like you were in the kitchen all day (what a bonus!).

Tempeh and Rice Stuffed Peppers

Tempeh and Rice Stuffed Peppers

Feb 21, 2012

Partially freezing tempeh makes grating it a cinch. Nutritional yeast adds a savoury cheese-like dimension to the filling ­ look for it in health food stores. Use medium-size green, red, yellow or orange peppers with flat bottoms.

Fruit and Nut Stuffed Pork Tenderloins

Fruit and Nut Stuffed Pork Tenderloins

Jul 14, 2005

The pork available in the supermarket today is seasoned, which means that it has been injected with a brine that ensures the meat retains moisture even if overcooked. The amount of sodium is not high enough to cause concern. Serve with green beans and a spinach salad.
