Broiled Tilapia with Thai Coconut-Curry Sauce

This is the most tasty Thai sauce I've ever made. I love Thai and for this to come out this good makes me excited to make it again soon with chicken. The sauce alone with some white rice in there is also tasty. Adapted from my favorite place for recipes...Cooking Light.

Blueberry Scones

My ideal breakfast is scones of all kinds, my latest make is the Blueberry scones with a brown sugar crumb topping. Scones go perfect with my morning chai and it is the reason I love them so much.

Wine and Beer Tastings- Good finds.

Here are some nice recommendations that we have tasted in my household lately.

Quail Creek Shiraz 2008- inexpensive and has a light finish which I think works nicely with a light dinner meal.

AllaGash- Curieux Ale Aged In Oak Bourbon Barrels- The best tasting beer I ever had, it's a $10 dollar beer for one 9.4 Fl Oz which is probably the most expensive beer I've ever had but worth the penny.

Salmon With Coconut Thai Style Spinach

There is humor behind this dish, I first attempted to make a dish from one of Closet Cooking's old posts on this Thai flavor dish he made ages ago. After using Light Coconut Milk instead of the real deal I screwed the flavor up pretty bad, so I rescued this dish by adding Parmesan cheese to the spinach to give the creamy texture I should have got out of it in the first place and I added 2 Tsp of Red curry paste in addition to the 1 it called for to give it some intense flavor. Came out great I would make it this way again but I'd also like to try it's original form first. :)

BBQ Slow Cooked Shredded Pork

I'm not the biggest fan of preparing or cutting up pork, the smell of the uncooked meat bothers me but I wanted to give this a try seeing that there were 74 excellent reviews to this recipe. I have to admit this is the best BBQ Pork recipe I've ever come across. Simply delicious, tasty, finger licking good! One of Cooking Light's Best...
