Cauliflower, Broccoli and Chickpea Curry

When I lived in New York in the '80s, I used to make a version of this Cauliflower, Broccoli, and Chickpea Curry. Mainly because I LOVE Indian food and it is very cheap to make. Sometimes I would make it with chicken.

Pan-Fried Zucchini with Vinegar and Chili Pepper

This Pan-Fried Zucchini with Vinegar and Chili Pepper is very quick to make. Fried zucchini is popular all over Italy, and change little from area to area. In Rome, this appetizing dish is given extra flavor by the addition of peperoncino (small, red chili pepper) and crushed garlic that browns in the oil.

One Pot Harissa Chicken with Chickpeas and Yogurt

This One Pot Harissa Chicken with Chickpeas and Yogurt is a fuss-free dish that’s easy to make at home. Spicy, fragrant harissa reduces and coats the chicken and chickpeas as they roast, and a creamy yogurt harissa sauce finishes it all off. Harissa is what my husband calls the ketchup of north Africa. Harissa is a Tunisian hot chili pepper paste made with roasted red peppers, serrano peppers and other hot chili peppers and spices and herbs such as garlic paste, coriander seed, or caraway as well as some vegetable or olive oil for preservation. It's so good, I can't wait to make it again!

Tex-Mex Stew

I love pulling things from my pantry and freezer and making dinner. This Tex-Mex Stew didn't seem like it would be very good because it uses frozen peppers and onion soup mix, but I was wrong. It takes 5 minutes to prep and about 15 minutes to cook. I didn't even use a fork to eat it, just tortilla chips. You could actually pour it into a bag of Fritos, like Frito Pie.

Scaloppine is meat that is flattened by pounding and usually dredged in flour or breadcrumbs. My friend Barbee saw this Chicken Scaloppine with Red Wine Mushroom Sauce on The Chew and said it was the best chicken she had ever made or eaten! I have to agree with her, it's a winner.
