Chocolate Coconut Milk Ice Cream

Share

A girlfriend came to visit us on Shelter Island this summer and she has a dairy allergy. I enjoy making ice cream in the summer, but knew she couldn’t have any, so I searched for some kind of frozen treat that she could eat.

I love this recipe because it only has four ingredients and you […]

Thai Herb Grilled Chicken Breasts

Share

This is now one of my go-to summer chicken recipes. I have made it numerous times and each time I didn’t let the chicken marinate for nearly as long as I should have. Despite my blunder, the chicken was incredibly moist and flavorful each time. There’s something about letting boneless chicken breasts sit in coconut […]

Shrimp Stew with Coconut Milk, Tomatoes and Cilantro

This is a perfect Thai-inspired weeknight meal. The preparation is quick and the result is delicious. I love almost anything with coconut milk and cilantro, such a great combination. I served this over brown rice which sopped up the sauce nicely. My husband loved this. Boys wouldn’t go near it.

We had lots of guests (primarily my family) over Labor Day weekend, and on Saturday night we had a huge crowd for dinner.   Some of my sister’s friends were in Greenport, so they joined us.   We were 12 children and 14 adults.   I was looking for something that was nice enough for company, but easy […]

Carrot-Coconut Milk Soup

Share

I thought this soup was delicious! It’s very rich, and I served one batch as an appetizer for four people. We each got a small serving, but it was a perfect size for an appetizer.   I could have easily eaten more, but I served a main course as well.

The […]

Caribbean Succotash

I’m always on the lookout for interesting vegetable recipes. I recently received a subscription to Bon Appetit magazine and I found this recipe in my first issue. I love the flavor combination of all of the vegetables, and the coconut milk and nutmeg make a nice light sauce to accompany them. […]
