Coconut Curry Chicken

1 bunch green onions, thinly sliced, about 8 to 10 scallions/green onions
1 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups chicken broth
3/4 cup cream of coconut
2 to 3 teaspoons curry powder
1/2 cup milk or half-and-half
4 to 6 chicken breast halves
Salt and pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil
Fresh chopped parsley or thinly sliced green onions, for garnish

In a medium saucepan, melt the butter with 2 tablespoons olive oil over medium heat. Add
onion and garlic; sauté for about 2 minutes. Stir in the flour until well blended. Stir in chicken
broth and cream of coconut; stir to blend.

Add the curry powder. Continue cooking until thickened and bubbly; set aside.

In a large skillet over medium-high heat, cook chicken in 2 tablespoons of olive oil until chicken
is browned on both sides, about 4 to 6 minutes. Pour off any excess oil. Add the sauce mixture
and bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to low, cover, and cook for about 10 minutes, or until
chicken is cooked through.

Stir in the milk and heat through. Sprinkle with chopped parsley or more sliced green onion.
Serves 4.

Robbie in IN, I make fish tacos several ways, but not the same as yours, & not with baked
instead of sauteed fish, so you can bet we will try them ! Thanks. Marilyn in FL

Jean Cecil VA/FL, courgettes may be zucchini. I know aubergine is eggplant. Got a
French/English dictionary? Might work.

My Daughter made this for my Mother's day dinner. It was better than the cheesy potato
casserole, and I love cheesy potato casserole. Even if you don't care for cauliflower. Give it a try.

This is Absolutely Delicious!!!

Loaded Cauliflower Casserole
Great for Low Carbers

2 lbs cauliflower florets
8 oz shredded sharp cheddar cheese, divided
8 oz shredded Monterrey Jack cheese, divided
8 oz block cream cheese, softened
4 tablespoons heavy cream
2 bunches green onions, sliced (1 1/2 cups)
6 sliced bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 clove garlic, grated
Salt & pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Steam cauliflower florets until tender. While cauliflower steams,
cream together 6 oz of the shredded cheddar, 6 oz of the Monterrey Jack, cream cheese, and
heavy cream.

Stir in sliced green onions, chopped bacon, and garlic. Set aside. Drain any liquid from steamed
cauliflower and add to cheese mixture.

Stir cauliflower and cheese mixture together. Taste for seasoning, and add as necessary.
If you want a finer texture, give a few mashes with the potato masher.

Pour into a 2-3 quart casserole and sprinkle on remaining cheddar and Monterrey Jack cheese.
Cover dish with foil and bake for 25 minutes; remove foil and continue to bake until cheese is
brown and bubbly.

This may be the recipe grannym IL requested in the 5/9 newsletter. It does not have marshmallows in it, as do most Mississippi Mud Bar/Cake recipes do, but I think you could
easily use marshmallow cream between the layers. I have not made this recipe. It was given to
me by a friend and I have seen it posted on various recipe sites.

Ultimate Chocolate Brownie Cake

1 (2 layer size) chocolate cake mix or flavor of your choice
1 Family size brownie mix- usually baked in 9 X 13 pan
2 cans chocolate frosting or flavor of your choice
1 12 ounce package semi sweet chocolate chips- Can also use other flavor of chips or your
favorite chopped up candy bars.
1/2 cup toasted pecans - optional

Make the chocolate cake according to the package directions. Pour batter evenly into two lightly
greased 8 inch round pans and bake at 350 degrees for 32-37 minutes. Cake is done when
toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan for 10 minutes before transferring to a
rack to cool completely.

Make the brownie mix according to the package directions. Pour entire brownie batter into one
greased pan the exact size you used to bake the cake. Bake the brownie at 350 degrees for
25-27 minutes. Watch closely; do not over bake, but it should not be doughy in the center. Cool
in pan for 15 minutes before transferring to a rack to completely cool. May need to use a
spatula to remove from pan in one piece. Can also line pan with greased foil and lift out of pan
using edges of foil.

To Assemble
On serving plate or cake plate, place 1 baked cake layer. Frost top of cake with 1/3 of one of the

cans of frosting. Sprinkle a handful of the chips and pecans on top. Carefully place the brownie
layer on top of the frosted cake layer. Frost top of brownie layer with 1/3 of one of the
containers of frosting, then sprinkle a handful of chips and pecans on top. Place the remaining
cake layer on top of the brownie layer and frost with 1/3 of one container of frosting. Use the
second can of frosting to cover sides and add to the top layer. Sprinkle remaining chips on top
and gently press in to the sides of the assembled cake, making sure to evenly distribute.

Hi, I am hoping someone out there can help me. I am looking for a cake frosting recipe. When I
was growing up,( Now 44 yo.) we used to make a frosting that was out of this world. It was not
a butter cream made with crisco, nor a whipped type like marshmallows. It also was not one
made with confectioners and milk and extract. From what I can remember, it was a frosting that
you started out on the stove with melted butter. I remember that you had to be careful to mix
all the ingds. in at the right time. If not the mixture would "break". When the frosting was done, it was like ice cream. It needed to be refridged. But OHHH so GOOD! Any help anyone can give me would be great!
Thanks, Terry, Hilton, NY

Hi Nancy,
I have Vista 7 so I don’t know if this makes a difference or not but I do not print out your
recipes t
hat I want, I save them in sub-folders in My Documents. When you get to the final
“print” page, instead of printing, I cancel print and go to the toolbar and select “tools” and then
“save as”. I save it in My Documents in the folder where I want it. I only have to print it out if
I need to use it for reference when I am ready to prepare the recipe.
Love your newsletter, Mary Ann

The Finger Test to Check the Doneness of Meat without a therometer

NOTE: This method is faster than even an instant read therometer, and no hole means no juices
running out. Even if you use a therometer, judge the meat this way first, so you get to know the
feel you are looking for. Experiment with a cheaper cut of meat at first?

NOTE: Notice the finger is pushing gently about 1/2 inch or so from the fold on the thumb.
RAW MEAT: Open the palm of your hand. Relax the hand. Take the index finger of your other
hand and push on the fleshy area between the thumb and the base of the palm. Make sure your
hand is relaxed. This is what raw meat feels like. (Check this out the next time you have a raw
steak to cook.)

WELL DONE MEAT: Now gently press the tip of your pinky and your thumb together. Again feel
the fleshy area below the thumb. It should feel quite firm. This is what well done meat feels like
when you press on it. (Check this out the next time you overcook a piece of meat.)

MEDIUM DONE MEAT: Press the tip of your ring finger and your thumb together. The flesh
beneath the thumb should give a little more. This is what meat cooked to a medium doneness
feels like.

MEDIUM RARE: Gently press the tip of your middle finger to the tip of your thumb. This is
medium rare.

Press the tip of your index finger to the tip of your thumb. The fleshy area below the thumb
should give quite a bit. This is what meat cooked to rare feels like. Open up your palm again
and compare RAW to RARE.

Scrumptious Salisbury Steak in Mushroom Gravy

"A classic Salisbury steak in beef and mushroom gravy. This simple, hearty dish will remind you
of Sunday dinners at grandma's house. The recipe makes plenty of gravy, so serve with mashed
potatoes or buttered noodles.

1 pound ground beef
1 egg
3 tablespoons crushed buttery round
cracker crumbs
2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon poultry seasoning
2 (4 ounce) cans sliced mushrooms with juice
3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
3 cups milk
3 cubes beef bouillon

In a medium bowl, mix together the ground beef, egg, cracker crumbs, onion, salt, pepper and
poultry seasoning using your hands. Shape into 6 patties about 1 inch thick.

Fry the patties in a large skillet over medium-high heat for 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until
browned. Drain off grease, and remove patties to a platter; keep warm.

Melt the butter in the same skillet, and add the mushrooms. Cook and stir for about 2 minutes.
Sprinkle the flour over, and mix in until blended. Stir in the milk and beef bouillon. Cook and stir
over medium heat until smooth and starting to thicken. Return the patties to the gravy and cook
over low heat, uncovered, for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally
