Salad with Prosciutto and Caramelized Pears and Walnuts
An amazing salad that blends different flavors to impress your guests. The salad dressing is an orange vinaigrette. Try to use Asian pears in this salad, as they are best for flavor. But if you can't find Asian pears in your area, you can substitute Bosc or Anjou.

Chili Cheese Dog Pot Pie
This is a good way to get a good hot meal on the table on weeknights. I serve it with raw veggies and dip. It is also an ideal way to use up leftover chili.
Thai Peanut Chicken
This is a very tasty Asian-inspired dish made with chicken and broccoli in a spicy peanut sauce. If you like it mild, use less cayenne, like it spicy, use more. If you're salt conscious, use low sodium soy sauce.
Burmese Chicken Curry (Gaeng Gai Bama)
This is actually a northern Thai dish with a definite Burmese influence. I first ate it in a Burmese restaurant in Melbourne, Australia. I asked for the recipe and of course I didn't get it. I later experimented with some Thai recipes and came up with this final result. We really love this with steamed jasmine rice. It's quite a hot and spicy dish, so if you want it a bit mild, check the curry paste you use first. You can replace coconut milk with evaporated milk, but traditionally, coconut milk is a must.
White Cheese Chicken Lasagna
Creamy chicken lasagna that'll make you forget all about the tomato kind!
Black Bean and Salsa Soup

Fresh California Salsa
A refreshing, spicy salsa recipe with tomatoes, jalapeños, onion, and cilantro. Jalapeño peppers vary in heat, so it is important to taste the salsa to ensure you do not make it too hot to handle. It's very popular and requested at potlucks. Serve with tortilla chips.
