I think that the mushroom risotto was the most comforting dish with its earthy wine-and-garlic soaked aroma. How can you argue with something that smells like that?
This is the coconut and peanut butter bar expiriment. Karen, in my office, was the only person satisfied by them. The recipe is from Gourmet's cookbook and I thought it sounded like a lot of flour, so I reduced it by 1/4 cup. I should have reduced it further and added some chocolate chips. I'll try again another time. They were indeed pretty.
The star of the week was a repeat of Saag Paneer (without paneer this time; a dollop of cottage cheese does the trick!) I topped it with Eric's mango chutney. The spicy and sweet together is truely to die for. I wrote the recipe on here in November. Go find it and make it asap!!
