Berry Shortcake

Each recipe make 8 shortcakes. It is easy to make these ahead of time and even freeze them. Double the recipe if you are feeding more than 8. Try it with strawberries now and in August with peaches.

Coconut Curry Noodles

You can easily make this recipe gluten free by replacing the soy sauce with tamari. For a vegetarian option leave out the chicken, replace the fish sauce with soy sauce and the chicken broth with vegetable broth. Pretty much any vegetables will work so try to use up what you have on hand.

Chicken Tikka Masala

Though it is not traditionally an Indian side dish consider serving Chicken Tikka Masala with a side green vegetable making it a more nutritious option for your family.

Chicken Fajitas

To prepare Chicken Fajitas the chicken is seared in a skillet on the stove top then transferred to the oven to finish cooking. Because of the cooking process you either need 1 oven per 2 chefs or you need to take shifts in the oven. When I cook with a group of 4 we usually prep toppings for serving as well to eliminate downtime. Decide before hand with guests who is buying the tortilla shells and optional toppings. Possible toppings include: grated cheese, salsa, guacamole, sour cream, lettuce and chopped fresh cilantro.
