Coconut Chicken Soup

What to do with left over rotisserie chicken and left over coconut milk? Random ingredients I know, but we got lucky and came across this recipe from Joy of Cooking. This recipe reminded me more of a curry than a soup, just without the curry. :) We put it over rice and it was delicious. This is very simple, taking roughly 30 minutes to make.

Grilled Rosemary Brie Chicken Sandwich

I am going to say this flat out, this is one of the best sandwiches I have ever had. The marinade for the chicken is very strong and flavorful. I used rosemary cut fresh from my garden, so I highly encourage getting the freshest rosemary possible. You can put anything you want on this sandwich, but the chicken has so much flavor and the brie adds a nice light texture, I really don't think this sandwich needs condiments. Also being from California, it is not a proper sandwich unless it has avocado on it.  Just try it! It's amazing!!

Dos Leches Lime Tequila Cake with Coconut Tequila Glaze

For those who follow me on Facebook you probably saw my slight ordeal with this cake. For some unknown reason, the center of my cake collapsed...sort of. I am not really sure what happened, but it was entertaining no doubt. Minus that, this cake turned out nicely and is quite tasty. This was my first time making a "leches" cake and I have a few tips if you plan on making this one.

Nana's Lasagna

We had some left over tomato sauce from the meatballs, so we decided to continue with the family recipes this week and try my boyfriends great grandma's lasagna. I really like the cheese mixture with this recipe and with a nice meaty sauce...nom nom nom nom!!! It is great for leftover lunches too! :D
