Cheddar-Broccoli Lunch Muffins

This is a recipe we got from a little booklet they were handing out at Whole Foods.  Normally I don’t take those booklets because I feel they clutter up my house.  Somehow I took the booklet and it even ended up at home.  Most of the stuff in there were pretty standard recipes.  The picture for the Cheddar-Broccoli Lunch Muffins looked pretty nice.  I thought it might be good to try since Thanksgiving was coming up.  We could serve these muffins instead of the regular corn bread.  Well we made the muffins and they were excellent.  I converted it into a flowchart because it’s definitely something to keep.

Here’s the flowchart.

Chicken Tikka Masala

OK, so here’s a start.  One of the items we made this week was Chicken Tikka Masala.  Chicken Tikka by itself is one of my favorite summertime dishes.  Chicken Tikka Masala (notice that third word there) it basically the same dish with a rich buttery, tomato based sauce.  I won’t go into the origins of CTM as it’s often called, but you can read about it in Wikipedia.  How can a dish that’s the national dish of England, not be good?  The original recipe itself starts from something I read in Food & Wine, it’s a very good recipe by itself, but the Masala portion converts it into something totally different.  Not sure where I got the “Masala” portion of the recipe, but I have it on a piece of paper that’s covered with stains because it’s been around for so long.

There’s several reasons why this was the first recipe to be converted into a flow chart.  Firstly it’s not terribly complicated so the flowchart itself won’t be too complicated.  Secondly, I’ve made this recipe so many times before that I could probably make it from memory.  Finally, it’s such a great dish, it deserves to be first.

Here’s the flowchart.
