3 cups flour, 2 Tbsp sugar, 2 1/4 tsp. yeast, 2 tsp. salt, 1c. water, 1 egg, 2 Tbsp. butter, 2 cloves chopped garlic, 1-2 cups grated cheese, 3 whole garden onions finely chopped. Combine all dry ingredients. Heat water and butter in saucepan until 130 degrees F. Pour into dry mix and beat until blended. Add egg, beat on low 30 seconds. Add garlic, onions, and cheese, beat on high 3 min. Cover and let rise in warm place 30 min. Fill muffin cups and bake @ 350* F. 15-20 min. Best right out of oven or heated for 10 seconds in microwave after cooled. Do not bake more than once or they get very hard. Makes 2 dozen minis.
Chicken Curry and Jasmine Rice
1 lb. chicken tenders or breast cut into small pieces, 2 cans chicken broth, 2 cans coconut milk, 2 Tbsp. red curry paste, 2-3 Tbsp. Lime juice, 1 clove garlic chopped, 1/4 c. chopped onion, 1 can bamboo shoots, 1 sm. can mushroom pieces, 3-4 c. jasmine rice. Combine all ingredients *EXCEPT RICE* into large pot. Let cook covered over medium heat until chicken is done. About 30-45 min. Stir occasionally, and do not let boil over. Add jasmine rice and stir to keep from sticking. Let simmer about 15-20 min. or until rice is done. Rice will soak up majority of juice, but not all. If you let sit over night it will soak up all juice. You may cook rice separately according to package instructions and add to soup afterward. Serves 8-10.

When chicken is 3/4 way done, add strips of onion. Let this continue to cook until onions are translucent. Add 1 Tbsp. olive oil, garlic and mushrooms, continue to stir. Drain noodles and add to chicken. Add remaining olive oil. Add spinach and continue stirring until all spinach is just wilted. Serve with grated Parmesan over top. Serves 4. Time: 30 minutes Total.
