Chicken Enchilada Pasta

Originally from My Kitchen Cafe. I used whole-wheat pasta and omitted the chilies because I could only find medium green enchilada sauce instead of mild. It worked great! You can garnish with extra sour cream, cheese, diced tomatoes, green onions, or crushed tortilla chips. I didn't try any of these and still thought it was really good. Can't really go wrong with lots of sour cream and cheese!

2-3 chicken breasts, cooked and cubed or shredded
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 garlic cloves, finely minced
1 medium onion, diced
1 red pepper, diced
4-ounce can diced green chilies
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon cumin
2 (10-oz) can green chili enchilada sauce
2/3 cup red enchilada sauce
1 can large black olives, cut into slices
1 cup sour cream
1 1/2 cups shredded cheese
16-20 oz. penne pasta (Depending on how "saucy" you want the pasta)

1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil.
2. Cook the pasta until tender.
3. While the pasta is cooking, heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet and add the onion.
4. Cook for 2-3 minutes until onion is translucent.
5. Add the garlic and red pepper and cook for another 2 minutes, until pepper is barely tender.
6. Add the cooked chicken, green chilies, spices, enchilada sauces and olives.
7. Let the sauce simmer for about 8-10 minutes.
8. Add the sour cream and cheese and heat through, until the cheese is melted (but don't boil!).
9. Pour the sauce over the hot pasta.

Kalua Pig - Mainland Style

This recipe comes from my Aunt Michelle who lives in Kona and my cousin Rachel. Definitely a traditional luau fare, but much easier than roasting a pig underground!

Pork Butt/Shoulder
2 TBSP ginger (grated)
1/4 Cup Liquid Smoke
Rock Salt/Sea Salt Crystals
1 Cup Chicken Broth
Chopped Cabbage (optional)

1. Brown the outside of the meat using your favorite seasoning salt (optional, I didn't).
2. Mix liquid smoke and ginger together and rub into the meat.
3. Then rub meat with salt.
4. Place meat in crock pot and pour in remaining liquid smoke mixture and chicken broth.
5. Cook on low setting for 8-10 hours.
6. Add salt as necessary.
7. When ready to serve, separate from the bone and pull apart, removing any visible fat.
8. Mix in cabbage and serve over rice.

Hint: The real flavor comes from the liquid smoke and the rock/sea salt so be generous with both.

Southwestern Turkey Burger

Can't remember where I originally got this. Don't be afraid of the turkey! To me, it tastes better than ground beef. I love these burgers. I'm a huge condiment fan and I don't think these need any.

1 egg white, lightly beaten
1/3 cup cheddar cheese, diced
12 oz. lean ground turkey
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1/3 cup breadcrumbs
2/3 cup chopped onions

Ravioli with Balsamic Brown Butter

From Giada De Laurentis via Food Network. This was really yummy the first time I made it and then not as yummy when I made it for dinner group. Maybe because I pushed my luck by using some whole-wheat ravioli? I don't know, but it's quite good when done well! Also, we're not huge nut people, but really liked the addition of the toasted walnuts to this. It adds a ton.

18 to 20 ounces store-bought ravioli (cheese, mushroom, or squash)
6 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/3 cup toasted, chopped walnuts
1/4 cup grated Parmesan

1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat.
2. Add the ravioli and cook 4 to 5 minutes, until tender but still firm to the bite, stirring occasionally. (I like mine soft, not firm.)
3. Drain ravioli onto a large serving platter.
4. Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan cook the butter over medium heat, stirring occasionally.
5. When the foam subsides, and the butter begins to turn a golden brown, about 3 minutes, turn off the heat.
6. Let cool for about 1 minute.
7. Stir in the balsamic vinegar, salt, and pepper.
8. Transfer the ravioli to the saucepan with the balsamic brown butter.
9. Sprinkle walnuts and Parmesan over the top. Serve immediately.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Originally from allrecipes.com. I put mine in the slow cooker in the morning. Watch the potatoes, they may get too soft. Leave the butter/flour/milk combo until about a half our or so before serving. I used evaporated milk because I read someone sometimes had problems with milk curdling in their crockpot. I didn't want to risk it so I've never tried it.

Stacked Enchiladas

Originally from Kristin Ellis' blog who got them from someone else, I think. Apparently you can do green enchilada sauce with Monterrey Jack cheese, but I've never tried it. I'm sure it'd be great too though!

Tuscan Lemon Chicken

Originally from Ina Garten of the Food Network. I didn't grill mine (we don't have a grill), I just cooked it on the stovetop. And I didn't flatten the chicken, and Kosher salt?...eh...but I think fresh lemon juice is a must!

1 (3 1/2-pound) chicken, flattened
Kosher salt
1/3 cup good olive oil
2 teaspoons grated lemon zest (2 lemons)
1/3 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 tablespoon minced garlic (3 cloves)
1 tablespoon minced fresh rosemary leaves
Freshly ground black pepper
1 lemon, halved

1. Sprinkle the chicken with 1 teaspoon salt on each side.
2. Combine the olive oil, lemon zest, lemon juice, garlic, rosemary, and 2 teaspoons pepper in a small measuring cup.
3. Place the chicken in a ceramic or glass dish just large enough to hold it flat. Or, alternately, put it in a Ziplock bag like I did.
4. Pour the lemon marinade over the chicken, turning it in the dish.
5. Cover the dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight. Turn the chicken 2 or 3 times while marinating.
6. When ready to grill, prepare a hot charcoal fire on 1 side of a grill (or turn a gas grill on low heat). Spread most of the coals across half of the grill.
7. Place the chicken, skin side up, on the opposite side of the grill and place the dish you used for marinating on top of the chicken to weight it.
8. Cook for 12 to 15 minutes, until the underside is golden brown.
9. Turn the chicken skin side down, weight again with the dish, and cook for another 12 to 15 minutes, until the skin is golden brown and the chicken is cooked through.
10. Place the lemon halves on the cool side of the grill, cut side down for the last 10 minutes of cooking.
11. Remove the chicken to a plate or cutting board, cover with aluminum foil, and allow to rest for 5 minutes.
12. Cut in quarters, sprinkle with salt, and serve with the grilled lemon halves.

4. When done, remove bay leaf, and shred meat with a fork (I did this step about 45 minutes before eating so the shredded meat had time to absorb more of the juices in the crockpot).
5. Serve on crusty rolls with cheese, if desired.

1. For the dough, combine all the ingredients and mix and knead until you have a soft, elastic dough (don't add too much flour - the key to soft dinner rolls is a soft dough!).
2. Place the dough in a lightly greased bowl and cover, letting rise in a warm place for 20-30 minutes.
3. Prepare a 9X13-inch pan by lightly greasing the bottom and sides with butter or nonstick cooking spray.
4. Deflate the dough and divide into 15 pieces.
5. Shape the pieces of dough into rounds and punch a cube of cheese from the bottom up into the center of each piece.
6. Pinch the dough tightly together to close the bottom.
7. Place the rolls, pinched side down, in the prepared baking pan.
8. Cover and let rise again for another 15 to 20 minutes, or until nearly doubled.
9. While the rolls are rising, melt the butter and stir in bread crumbs and parmesan cheese. Set aside.
10. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
11. When the rolls have risen, brush the tops with the egg yolk beaten with water.
