The Best Thai Coconut Soup
This is now my favorite chicken soup! I used homemade chicken stock and a ready-made lemongrass-ginger-cilantro-chile paste I found at the market which worked perfectly, but also mixed in a little mild red curry paste. I also added a few lime peels to the broth as it simmered (in lieu of kefir lime leaves) and used pre-cooked chicken breast instead of shrimp. I only made half the recipe this time -- will definitely be making this recipe again and again.

Kale Soup
I followed some of the suggestions on previous reviews, i.e. beef broth instead of water, added a can of diced tomatoes, switched out the hot Portuguese peppers with a jalapeno and used white kidney (cannellini) beans. I used linguica sausage, left out the pork chop and added a chopped carrot since I didn't have any cabbage. It was so good, I had two small bowls for dinner - the leftovers will make an awesome lunch tomorrow!

Carolina Style Low Carb Barbecue Sauce
I made this sauce last night with New Mexico chile powder and Xylitol (a natural low carb sweetener made from birch trees) instead of Splenda. I wasn't sure about the flavor since the vinegar was very strong, but WOW!! After the sauce sat overnight in the fridge, I basted my pressure cooked baby back ribs with it and then baked the ribs for another 15 minutes -- the ribs were perfectly cooked (only 32 minutes total!) and the sauce was fantastic! Tangy sweet with a nice kick! I will be making this sauce often - can't wait to try it on chicken!
