This week is the first time I’m actually writing two recipes in one post. So I’m going to start with CEiMB for today’s main course and end with the Barefoot Bloggers for today’s dessert….
CEiMB: Thai Style Halibut Coconut Curry Broth
This weeks recipe for Craving Ellie in My Belly was picked by The Not So Skinny Kitchen, she decided on Thai Style Halibut Coconut Curry Broth. I’m not a huge fan of fish and I wanted to empty my freezer for my upcoming vacation, so I decided to use two chicken breasts. I also used red onion instead of shallots ’cause I was totallly out of shallots!
I cooked the chicken for about 20 minutes, just to make sure it was cooked all the way. I halved the recipe, but used the entire two teaspoons of red curry paste. I left one chicken breast whole and cut the other one into small pieces. Boy, this dish sure ticked all my boxes: curry, cilantro, lime and chicken: absolutely delicious!!!
One serving of this lovely dish works out to only 6 WW points!To my humble opinion this was a great pick, check our what my fellow Ellie-istas thought here.
Barefoot Bloggers: Ina’s Lemon Cakes
McKenzie of Kenzie’s Kitchen got to pick this months Bonus Recipe for Barefoot Bloggers, her pick was Ina’s Lemon Cake. Oh my, this tastes amazing: like heaven. I didn’t think it would be possible with not even the tiniest bit of chocolate in sight, but it’s really good!!
In this recipe Ina combines the perfect pound cake with a lovely tart lemon syrup and a delicious lemon glaze. The cake is nice and moist, sweet but also sour. To sum it up: the perfect summer cake!
The recipe actually makes two cakes, but since I’m planning on doing a lot of baking the next couple of days I halved the recipe and ended up with one perfect lemon cake.
My one lemon cake made 14 slices, that works out to 5 WW Points per slice.
