These Recipes Have Been Brought to You in Part by Jamie Oliver
Now that the seasons are really changing around here (we live on the Eastern Shore of Maryland), my mind immediately becomes fixed on recipes revolving around fresh produce. Unfortunately we had a long and fickle winter, so really not much is in season yet other than a few anemic spears of asparagus.
Farmers markets may not be thriving yet, but I still want my veggies! With that in mind, I tried Jamie's recipe for Potato Leek Soup. I love it because it is a creamy potato soup without a heavy and fattening base. It manages to cram in some additional veggies (carrots and celery) and has a fresh flavor. I honestly didn't change a thing, so just click on the link above and give it a try!
I love making curries because you can customize them with just about any meat and spice level. This one is delicious and deviates slightly from his original recipe. Mostly because my husband and I hate shredded coconut and I can't stand cilantro. It has that soapy taste to me, I can't help it! This is called Chicken Korma, but it could work really well as a shrimp dish too. Try your own spin on the dish and let me know what you think!
