Ahhh how I love my Caphalon pot and pan set! They are sleek and sexy looking. Which makes cooking that much more fun!
With my Caphalon set, I received a very interesting flyer. On the flyer it read that I can send them my old pots and pants so that they can properly dispose of them and in the long run recycle the parts. How cool is that? So I went online to http://www.calphalon.com/GiftRegistry/Pages/Renew_Landing.aspx and registered my pot. Printed the prepaid mailing label and mailed it off. It was very easy and I recommend you do the same. PS thank you Jan for actually mailing it off for me =D
This week's guest were:
Jan, Rhonda, Mariana and Sarah.
This week's menu was:
Marrakesh Carrot Salad
Honey Lemon Chicken
Cranberry Oatmeal Bars
I normally cook form Susie's Kosher by Design: Lightens Up, but anytime I cook something from her book I'm in the kitchen for at minimum of 5 hours. This week I looked through my recipe binder and found some great recipes. Side note: some of you have showed interest in my recipes. If you are still interested, please send me an email with your requests. I'd be happy to share them!!
My honey lemon chicken and rice was picked out by my hubby. From my profile you will see he likes things sweet and I like things savory. But wanting to please my husband, I let him pick the recipe this week. Let me just say, this is now one of my favorite chicken dishes of all time! At first I was very hesitant and thought about changing the recipe a bit, but am I glad i stuck what it said. My first hesitation was that it would be sweet, next came the fact that it was a one pot dish. I am always weary of one pot dishes because I am scared that the starch wont be able to get my full attention and dry up. When poultry sits on top a dish, you can barley see how the starch is cooking. So with my hesitation I cooked the dish. As I said before it was amazing!! Honey mixed with lemon and herbs slowly cooking in my sleek pot looked just beautiful!
To next week's adventure!
