Chicken Breasts in a Date, Caper, and Mascarpone Sauce with Couscous
My husband does not like capers. My husband does not like dates. My husband took a couple of bites of this dish and announced that I could put it on the weekly rota and he would happily eat it. And then he gobbled it all up! The only change I made was I used 1/2 & 1/2 instead of heavy cream because I had that in the fridge and it was cold and rainy and I didn't want to go out. I did neglect the sauce a bit and when I returned, it had separated in a terrible gloppy mess, but I just added some more 1/2 & 1/2 and stirred vigorously and it all settled down. Disaster averted! Served with a boxed Roasted Garlic and Olive Oil couscous and for veggie, I followed recommendation and put my own twist: I sauteed green beans, then 5 minutes before finishing, I tossed in a handful of tomatoes, cucumbers, sliced Kalamta lives and some Spice Isalnds Greek Seasoning (great all-purpose spice for the pantry shelf) And for those who think cooked cucumbers sound yucky, you haven't lived until you've had braised cucumbers, but's that's another recipe. I highly recommend this recipe. Yum! (In fact, I just had the leftovers from my plate---there were none from Husband's and Son's---for lunch. Nukes well!)

Chocolate Gravy II
Oh, my gosh, this was sublime! Fried up some thick cut Applewood smoked bacon, served with some homemade biscuits all slathered with butter and it was a heart attack on a plate and we loved every sinful bite. Of course, this was a trial run and we'll have to limit ourselves to this kind of mad indulgence on special occasions. No one who has reviewed this recipe claims it's healthy and good for you and is something you'd eat every day.

Spicy Chicken Curry Soup
I must have gotten the mildest jar of curry in the batch. I purchased a 4 oz bottle of Thai Kitchen Green Curry Paste and following directions, added 2 T. (I had doubled soup recipe because it sounded delish and got good reviews and I was really hungry!) Then I added another T. Then another! It didn't take long before I had emptied the jar into the soup and was barely aware of any spices. So either everyone in the world than me is a weenie or I got a particularly mild bottle. As for the soup, spicy or not, it was delicious. However, I review it delicately, because as someone pointed out, if you change the recipe radically, then you really can't comment on the original recipe. I forgot to pick up green onions, so I ended up using a roughly chopped white onion. And then I had some red and green peppers leftover in the fridge and knowing how pretty that would look, I roughly chopped the peppers and threw them in. (It did look pretty: the red and green of the peppers and the ornage of the carrots against the pale chartreuse of the soup.) Then, because I was still looking for bite, I started sprinkling in caynee, but I stopped rpetty quickly because it was changing the oclor of the soup. I will state that the soup was good, and then adding the fresh squeeze leime juice made it go: "POW!" Totally took it up 4 star. Bon apetit!
