Chicken Curry with Mustard Greens and Evil Landlords

Posted by denise fletcher on Friday, August 13, 2010, In : Meat 


Let me first say that I have neither veered into cannibalism, nor turned my blog into a menagerie of meanies, what with evil landlords stepping on the tails of drill wielding demons. Read on till the end and you'll see that great people, who do lovely things, just because, still exist among the dastardly denizens.

I love a good urban legend; at best it unnerves and makes you think twice about flashing your headlights or taking the last train home, all by yourself, late at night. If nothing ...

Leftover Curry Noodles the Fusion Police Don't Need to Know About

Posted by denise fletcher on Tuesday, July 27, 2010, In : Pasta 


CONTENT ALERT! This will be a very short recipe.

On Sunday a very generous and shy soul (who reads my blog and will freak if she sees her name) left me in possession of a huge pot of chicken curry, the kind golden hued from turmeric and perfumed as a herb garden from the liberal use of lemongrass and makrut lime leaves. My very favourite kind of curry, and she knows it.

So large a pot was it, that it provided two meals for my family, plus enough to make a speedy, delicious and practical...

Sizzling Surf and Turf Pasta

Posted by on Wednesday, April 7, 2010, In : Pasta

Steamed Razor Clams with Chili, Ginger and Vermouth

Posted by on Thursday, March 4, 2010, In : Night
