My family is very traditional southern cooking. Every holiday we make a turnip casserole. I have not shared this recipe yet. I only know how to make it,we don't have it written down in teaspoons and cups yet.

Tom Ka Gai (Coconut Chicken Soup)
I've always wanted to try Tom Ka Gai, but always get Chicken Panang when I go to a Thai restaraunt. This was excellent! I did add 1 TBS of palm sugar. Thai food should be salty, sour, sweet, and spicy. I also added sweet peppers and rice noodles to make it hardy for dinner. Definitely going to make this again.

Cream Soup Base
A trick I learned at a gourmet restaraunt I worked at, Vodka. If you add a little vodka to your cream soups it adds a wonderful richness, like wine does to marinara sauce.

Thai Coconut and Cocoa Macaroons
I added more lime and some lime zest and skipped out on the cocoa powder (my husbands request.) We really liked the cookies although it took me 15 minutes to get the meringue right. Next time I'm doubling the recipe because my husband gobbled them all up so fast!
