Chicken Makhani (Indian Butter Chicken)
One word: AMAZING!! My first attempt at cooking an Indian dish resulted in disaster, but after gaining some confidence, I decided to try one of my favorite dishes, Makhani Chicken. I followed the recipe exactly except that I forgot to season the chicken just before adding it to the sauce, but I just combined the spices once the chicken was already mixed. I also used heavy cream rather than half and half. (Also, if you can't find ginger-garlic paste, do what I did and get separate tubes of garlic paste and ginger paste, usually found in major grocer's produce section. I actually found mini three-packs with both these pastes in it. Then just combine 1/2 tablespoon of each.) My husband said this was the best indian dish he's ever had....and I agree! I can now proudly say that MY butter chicken is MUCH better than what our favorite Indian restaurant serves. Serve this with Basmati rice. Plain white rice just doesn't cut it!

Best Spanish Rice
I LOVE Spanish Rice, and I've tried several recipes on this site. I, like others, was a little reluctant, afraid it would just taste like salsa, but was pleasantly surprised that it was awesome!! And as icing on the deliciousness is that it takes no time at all and uses very minimal ingredients. The only alteration I made to the original recipe was that I added about a tablespoon of cumin. Great recipe!!!

Bread Pudding II
Oh. My. Word. This is absolutely divine! I am a bread pudding lover, and while I usually only eat it at our local buffet place, I decided to take the plunge and try and make some myself. It was surprisingly simple to make; the prep took no time at all! I did have to make a couple of modifications, because I was out of a few key ingredients. I didn't have eggs, so I substituted with mayonnaise, 3 tablespoons per egg, or 3/4 cup for the entire recipe. I also realized I only had 1 cup of milk left, so I used that and 1 cup of coconut milk. I also added some brown sugar in addition to the white sugar because the coconut milk was unsweetened, and I just love the taste of brown sugar! I used regular, slightly stale, white bread, and let it cook about 7 minutes longer. I am WOWED! It's absolutely delicious, and blows our buffet place out of the water!!
