Mrs. Samurai's Kitchen > Coconut Lime Chicken Soup

Posted Mrs. Samurai on 10 November 2013 - 03:16 PM

Here's a Thai-inspired chicken soup that is easy to make and bursting with flavor! It's healthy comfort food with an Asian twist.

2 tablespoons coconut oil, ghee, or butter
1 onion, chopped
1-2 pounds uncooked chicken breast, diced
1 inch piece of fresh ginger, peeled and choppe...

Mrs. Samurai's Kitchen > Hamburger Salad

Posted Mrs. Samurai on 27 June 2013 - 05:49 PM

Here's a great, quick meal that's perfect for summer. It requires only brief cooking (or grilling) and benefits from the fresh, local produce that's available.
This is more of an idea than a recipe - a tasty and easy variation on the "cooked meat on a green salad" theme, such as taco salads o...

Mrs. Samurai's Kitchen > Enchilasagna!

Posted Mrs. Samurai on 06 April 2013 - 10:50 AM

Here's a hearty and very satisfying casserole that in its original form is vegetarian, but is easy to convert to meaty if you like - just see the note at the end. This would be a great centerpiece for a Cinco de Mayo celebration, and much easier than an assembly-style meal like tacos or burritos (although those are fun if you have the time!)

I just wanted to wish everyone who celebrates Easter this weekend a very blessed day!

Mrs. Samurai's Kitchen > Coconut Curry Vegetable Soup

Posted Mrs. Samurai on 23 March 2013 - 02:39 PM

This is a yummy soup that can be either made vegetarian or with chicken.  Delish either way!  Don't let the long list of ingredients worry you - as with any of my recipes, it is easy to make.  Scoop some cooked rice into each bowl if desired to really round out the meal.

2  T. coconut oil or butter
1  large onion, chopped
3  stalks celery,...

Mrs. Samurai's Kitchen > Southwest Slow-Cooker Stew

Posted Mrs. Samurai on 07 February 2013 - 11:41 AM

Here's a very easy and tasty beef stew with a southwestern twist. There are no potatoes in it, so it is low-carb for those of you who are cutting back on the starches! It's thinner than a typical beef stew, but chunkier than a soup. One could thicken the liquid at the end with some corn starch, but I've never bothered. Stirring in some sour cream to your...

Mrs. Samurai's Kitchen > Sausages with Peppers and Mushrooms

Posted Mrs. Samurai on 09 May 2012 - 08:00 PM

Some recipes are really mostly ideas of what to make for dinner - fairly simple combinations that aren't all that innovative, but just come together so well they are worth writing down. That's what I finally did after preparing this dish recently. There's not much to it, but if you use the right basic ingredients, it makes for a really tasty and easy dinn...

Mrs. Samurai's Kitchen > Death By Chocolate: what a sweet way to go!

Posted Mrs. Samurai on 15 April 2012 - 10:21 AM

This decadent dessert is a legend at our parish's Paschal (Easter) feast - the serving bowl is often literally licked clean when everyone is done! It's super easy because it relies on box mixes and Cool Whip, but somehow the combination of the various ingredients results in a surprisingly tasty and even elegant completed dish.   http://appliantology.org/u...

Mrs. Samurai's Kitchen > Eggs-cellent!

Posted Mrs. Samurai on 18 March 2012 - 07:00 PM

We go through a lot of eggs here at the Samurai household - about 3 dozen a week.  We like 'em scrambled, fried, in omelets or frittatas, even raw!  The simple, humble egg has been much maligned in the press and by the mainstream "healthcare" establishment at times, but we don't let that bother us - we recognize it for the little...

Mrs. Samurai's Kitchen > Veggie Frittata and Baked Hash Browns

Posted Mrs. Samurai on 28 February 2012 - 11:01 AM

Here's an easy weeknight dinner that you can usually pull together from ingredients you have kicking around in your fridge. Since the food is breakfasty, it would also make for a yummy brunch.

The only "thinking ahead" item is that if you are using frozen hash browns, it's helpful to pull them out and have them thaw (either a few hours...

Mrs. Samurai's Kitchen > Feeding time for the Samurai Pets

Posted Mrs. Samurai on 12 February 2012 - 07:58 PM

I was working at the kitchen sink, and suddenly felt 4 pairs of eyes upon me. I turned and this is what I saw.

Mrs. Samurai's Kitchen > Let's Hear it for Healthy Fats for a Healthy Body!

Posted Mrs. Samurai on 02 February 2012 - 10:52 AM

Once upon a time the local medical establishment was concerned that the Samurai's cholesterol levels were too high. Rather than follow their advice, he followed the more cutting-edge nutritional advice we'd been reading on our own questioning the popular "cholesterol theory" of heart disease. He reduced the amount of processed and/or...

Mrs. Samurai's Kitchen > Parmesan Crisps

Posted Mrs. Samurai on 31 January 2012 - 08:21 PM

Yum! I just saw this blog post and thought I would pass it along. Do you love crunchy, salty snacks, but are trying to avoid carbs and/or fried foods? How about some crispy disks of parmesan cheese? Sounds good to me. I used to do something similar to this with smoked provolone, but I think this would have a little more punch and crunch. Let me...

Mrs. Samurai's Kitchen > Salsa-Dijon Chicken Stew

Posted Mrs. Samurai on 21 January 2012 - 05:02 PM

Here's a simple but very tasty quick chicken dish! It's fairly saucy, so plan to serve it with mashed cauliflower or potatoes, rice, or something else to sop up the yumminess.

1 cup salsa
1/2 cup dijon mustard
juice from one lime (about 4...

Mrs. Samurai's Kitchen > Slow Cooker Chipotle Chicken Thighs

Posted Mrs. Samurai on 07 January 2012 - 04:20 PM

The Samurai and I had this for dinner last night, and it was so good I had to get it up here to share with the rest of you! It's loosely adapted from a recipe from the online "Menu-Mailer" service.
