Es's Family Famous Chicken Pie

Es's Family Famous Chicken Pie

In my wildest dreams, I never ever would have thought it possible to have a recipe of The Recipe Hunter FB Group and Blog to feature in a magazine.
One of our Facebook members Corne Nieuwoudt Garcia, a fellow Ex-South African member, now residing in Texas, and Publisher of Neighbors of the Woodlands contacted me at the end of February.
Mag request
I was totally gobsmacked and in awe when I received her initial note in which she asked if I would be interested to submit one of my own South African recipes and to feature in her esteemed magazine.
Well, to cut to the chase, this is the end result and I proudly present you with a copy of the page printed in Neighbors of the Woodlands Easter edition.

Here is a link to the original Chicken Pie recipe posted on Novemer 29, 2015.

Duality inspired by two beautiful people, or, to be more precise, two beautiful ladies who’ve never met, caused the appearance of this dessert on my Shavuos table.

No Bake No Dairy Cheesecake Choco-berry courtesy of koolkosherkitchen
This is the easiest, quickest, healthiest, and most delicious cheesecake I’ve ever had! And it’s not even a cheesecake; it only pretends to be one. It plays its role very well – if you don’t know, you can’t tell! Ooops, I didn’t mean to rhyme, it sort of happened.TRH No Bake No Dairy Cheesecake Choco-berry
Brownie on a Date courtesy of koolkosherkitchen
This cool brownie is on a sweet date. It’s so totally cool; it has spurned the heat of being baked but had a hot desire to be refrigerated instead. The date is delightfully sweet, as is proper for medjool dates, otherwise known as Judean dates.

Drumstick sambar (no coconut) courtesy of Cooking with Smile
I learnt  this method of making sambar from my good friend Sara. When we had guests for lunch, Sara told me to try this and it was highly appreciated by our guest. Ingredients for this is as same as any sambar but only the method differs. You try this and definitely see the change in taste.

Drumstick leaves / Murungai Keerai have been a part of Indian cuisine for a long time. These leaves may be considered as a king of all greens due to its numerous health benefits. During my childhood days, we used to have drumstick tree at our backyard from which we pluck leaves, drumstick and its flowers. My mom prepares poriyal, sambar and many other recipes with it which are packed with fresh flavour. Each and every part of the tree is beneficial.TRH Murungai Keerai Poriyal Drumstick Leaves Stir Fry

Greens Combo Salad courtesy of koolkosherkitchen
On one of my visits to sunny Georgia (a country, not a state), I saw two salads on the table crowded with many unique vegetable creations. These two, however, looked very similar to each other, but different colors. One was completely green. The other – oh, the other! – it was wonderfully green and red and purple. Both were flecked with crushed walnuts, as are many other Georgian dishes, and garnished with lots of dill. Having waited out the obligatory twenty-minute toast in honor of visiting journalists (i.e. my cameraman and myself), I politely inquired.

Perfect Kale Salad courtesy of koolkosherkitchen
A nutritionist friend once told me that perfect food had to combine four flavors: sweet, sour, salty, and spicy. “Take, for example, simple kale,” she said… and her phone rang. She had to leave urgently, to consult someone who, apparently, haven’t learned all the principles of perfect food yet.

Hello, Stranger, Have Some Soup! courtesy of koolkosherkitchen
Passover starts tonight, and the most important part of the celebration is called a Seder which means order. The order is prescribed in a little book called Haggada that we read at the table. The most important part of that is called Maggid which is the actual story of redemption and exodus from Egypt.  And the most important part of the story, repeated several times, is an admonition to share the holiday meal with a widow, an orphan, and a stranger because “you were strangers in a foreign land.” The same admonition is found in many other Biblical and Talmudic sources.
