Well, I'm finally home from the hospital - hooray! No more nasty hospital food, IVs, meds, blood tests, MRIs, or uncomfortable beds! I'm getting better each day too, which is awesome.  Drugs definitely work!  


I am on bed rest until Monday though so I'm just taking it easy and sleeping a lot.  I'm also watching Food Network all day which is making me want to cook up a storm!  I can't wait until I have the go ahead to get back in the kitchen, it has been far too long. 


So, since I have all this free time on my hands, I figured it was a perfect time to take requests from readers.  Is there any recipe that you would love to see featured on my blog?  Perhaps something that isn't so healthy that you wish was so you could indulge in it?  


Whatever it is, if it's a main course, side dish, soup, appetizer, dessert, etc.  just leave a comment here and let me know. I'll try my best to recreate or make the recipe and post is as soon as possible.  Keep in mind some recipes take a few tries to get right, so I might not be posting your recipe for a little while. 


Can't wait to see the comments! :)

Well, I was going to request Pad Thai, but then I looked up "Authentic Pad Thai Recipe" on Google and found out it's already Swank-friendly! (at least I think so - please correct me if I'm wrong! I just got the book in the mail today)

http://www.thaitable.com/Thai/recipes/Pad_Thai.htm

What I'd really like to figure out is how to make some awesome fluffy biscuits without butter or shortening. Ya up for the challenge? :)

So funny! Chicken Pad Thai is already on my list to make! Making it from scratch is Swank-friendly for sure (at least all recipes I have come across).

Biscuits have been done! I make them every couple of weeks and freeze them. I love having biscuits in the morning with eggs and a veggie sausage patty. :)

Hi Michi!

I have two requests:
1. Chicken tikka masala. I've played around w/ this using fat-free milk, tomato sauce, some sugar & spices, but I've never quite nailed it.
2. Orange chicken. Two problems for me - getting really crispy chicken (either it's too dry or not crispy based on what I've tried) and really nailing the sauce (I had one posted to the Swank board that just doesn't quite taste authentic to me.)

Thanks, and welcome back from the hospital!

I would LOVE some sort of Swank friendly cheese enchiladas with a tomato verde sauce.

Hope that you are really feeling better!

Have you tried to make a chinese egg roll before? I've tried a few recipes but don't care for the flavor.

Thanks so much for the feedback and keep them coming! I'm notified of comments so I'll keep checking this post for new inspiration.

Kate, I've never had Chicken Tikka Masala, but I'll do my best to recreate it! It sounds delicious! Orange chicken would also be amazing. Can't wait to try both!

Nikki, I have a recipe lined up for you!

Babe, raviolis are coming!

Holly, I haven't tried egg rolls before, but we can have fried food every once and a while, so perhaps that's the only way to make it right. Or, perhaps a vegetarian/shrimp spring roll that isn't fried and is made with rice paper is the way to go! I'll try it!

Moisturizing body wash my face with warm water and dry with a towel, and then use cotton dipped in olive oil, smear on the face. After 10-15 minutes, and then the hot towel, the last gently wipe with a dry towel. In addition, olive oil can also be used to embellish the body, after a bath, add some olive oil, mix in a cup of water, applied to the body, then the appropriate massage, can make the skin more smooth.
