About this Cook
My hubby and I grow a lot of our own veggies and have a grove of fruit trees. We pickle and can all year round and make our own preserves.

Easy Indian Butter Chicken
This was a very easy recipe and it tasted pretty authentic. My friend and I cooked it together and tripled the recipe so we would be able to freeze leftovers. However, to get the spices to meld more and develop more depth, I marinated my chicken pieces in yogurt, tandoori masala, lime juice, salt, pepper, grated ginger and chopped onion for about 6 hours. We found that this also made the chicken more tender. It was a huge hit with kids and adults alike.

Baked Halibut Steaks
This was a great recipe, and I would give it 5 stars with these changes: first, use flavored olive oil (e.g., basil, chili or garlic flavored). To solve the problem of it being dry and a bit bland that others commented on, use 1/2 cup of fire-roasted salsa and add to the saucepan with the zukes, and also add in a small handful of sun-dried tomatoes. I used cherry tomatoes and added them whole to the saucepan for a few minutes with the zuke for a few minutes til they were a bit blistered. I used a mix of yellow and red tomatoes and the presentation was spectacular. Cover it in the oven for half the time like another reviewer mentioned.

Veracruz-Style Red Snapper
This is a very good rendition of a classic. I made a few changes: like another reviewer, I added sliced blanched potatoes on top of the fish before baking. As the tomato sauce cooked, I added a few pinches of cinnamon, 1/3 cup of raisins and used ground chipotle pepper instead of cayenne.
