James has been sick with an unspecified Plague. What makes plague sufferers feel better? A great big batch of [ profile] electrichobbit's Internationally-renowned Chicken and Dumplings.

The recipe is here- and it takes substitutions well. My loathing for cooked carrots is well known* - I usually toss in random frozen veggies instead.

While I'm at it, here are some other recipes:

Gyudon- Japanese beef bowl. Good way to get rid of leftover pot roast, just slice it up and skip the boiling step.

Super Moist Pumpkin Bread

Chipotle Macaroni and Cheese - This is amazing. And probably amazingly bad for me. I haven't made it since I've started counting calories; I'm afraid that I wouldn't be able to stop at a reasonable portion size.

All of the recipes I've tried from the Homesick Texan have been good, actually. Especially since I sometimes feel like an exile in a land without Mexican food or Southern cooking.

Anyone have any favourite recipes that they might like to share? Bonus points for low calorie and/or veggie-based dishes.

*There is now one exception to my no-cooked-carrots policy: gajar halwa. Apparently Indian cuisine works miracles. Some Indian dishes can also make cilantro almost tolerable.

Man, I loathe macaroni and cheese, but throw "chipotle" and "bacon" in that concept and suddenly I WANT SOME RIGHT THE HELL NOW DAMNIT.

Now I'm all hungry. Incidentally, I have a food journal, infrequently updated: [ profile] ghastlygourmet.

Oooh. *goes to poke at the journal*

Do you hate all macaroni and cheese, or just the boxed kind? Homemade baked macaroni and cheese is way better than dubious-orange-powder macaroni, IMO.

Mysterious orange powder or casserole-style, I have a pretty well-entrenched aversion. It's the elbow noodles, mostly. They invariably get either over- or undercooked, and the cheese is watery or weirdly textured or cut with that staple of the Midwest, condensed cream soup for maximum yuck. And breadcrumbs on the top = very much indeed no. It's just a pile of foodie fail.

That recipe looks like something I might try, though. I'm sort of phenomenally unpicky. I poke at all my food aversions from time to time -- once a year or so, I nom a slice of fresh tomato and go "yep, still hate that". Like I can't quite believe that there's food I dislike. I mean, it's FOOD. Yay food! I might prefer some foods to other foods, but outright "yuck" is rare for me.
