My New Friend Epicurious

Lately I've become absolutely obsessed with my newest find......Epicurious!

Not that I'm a crappy cook to begin with as I have been known to whip up quite a tasty meal.  My issue lies in the "what to make for dinner tonight" category.  I, like many others, have fallen into the rut of making the exact same meals week after week.

Spagetti.......Baked Chicken.......Salmon Patties with Rice

Now don't get me wrong because it does taste great or good depending on who you ask but it's just soooooo damn boring and predictable.  That is until........Epicurious.

I'm not going to blabber on about all of the sites many virtues only to say it has made my meal planning all the easier and more exciting.

Last week I made Thai Beef w/Noodles and John ate two helpings and couldn't stop raving about it.  When I made Seared Wild Salmon with new potatoes and Dijon Broth....yum.....Holly loved this.

So Friday night is "girls night" and my friend Kelly is coming over for dinner prepared by moi.   She has been talking to be about the major health benefits of coconut for months now so being the consumate host that I am, I wanted to cook something in which coconut milk was one of the main ingredients.  Click onto Epicurious, type in coconut milk and voila .. up pops dinner for Friday night.

African Curried Coconut Soup with Chickpeas and Chicken served with warm Naan Bread....

I love Epicurious but I think I already said that............
