Rating: 4.5 stars 17
A great way to make goose. Similar to a turkey, but a much richer tasting bird. Incredibly good!

Stuffed Chicken Thighs with Roasted Potatoes and Carrots

Rating: 4.5 stars 37
Meaty chicken thighs with a cheesy, savory filling and carrots and potatoes - an easy, one-pan meal.

Quick Country-Fried Steak

Rating: 4 stars 14
That delicious old-country taste right at home. Always a big hit. Whip up some mashed potatoes and even some peas and carrots and you've got a whole meal ready to go! Amount of left-over mixture depends on how evenly and how thoroughly you coat each steak. Tweaking and experimenting will be required to nail down a better proportion ratio so that there is less mix left over.

Country Fried Steak

This country fried steak recipe was originally my grandmother's, but I thought it was really bland so I added seasoning to it. Serve it with country gravy and mashed potatoes.

Hot Date with a Chicken

A date, apricot, and cayenne pepper stuffing fills these baked chicken breasts.

Prosciutto-Wrapped Chicken Breasts with Herbed Goat Cheese

Rating: 4.5 stars 86
This prosciutto-wrapped stuffed chicken recipe is so good and surprisingly easy. The chicken comes out of the oven crispy yet stays moist with an indulgent filling. Chicken can be stuffed and wrapped the night before; ideal for entertaining! I like to serve this with pasta or with mashed potatoes and a quick pan gravy. Carbohydrate conscious? This recipe also goes great with a salad of mixed greens and vinaigrette.

A recipe I created for one of the leading hotels of the world. It includes a marvel of flavors, and is a nice approach to an Arabian fusion cuisine. I am sure you will enjoy this...

Mascarpone Mashed Potatoes

Rating: 4.5 stars 72
Not only is this a delicious alternative to regular mashed potato recipes, but it's a very user-friendly way to serve your potato side dish. They're really decadent: not too rich, but just rich enough, and perfect for any special occasion.

Holiday ONLY Mashed Potatoes

Rating: 4.5 stars 186
These mashed potatoes are too fattening to have on a regular basis. I only make these on holidays, and everyone wonders what's in them that's makes them so rich...
