This Turmeric Chicken with Honey Butter and Coconut Cous Cous is one of the cooler things I’ve cooked in the last few weeks.  I’ve baked a ton of good stuff lately but haven’t had much time to get creative and make a tasty meal in awhile, so when this came up I was all in.  If you haven’t cooked with turmeric before don’t be worry it’s just like using any other spice, the trick is to balance out the flavors with things it goes well with like honey.

Before I make any new recipe I definitely have a vision for what I want it to look like and what I want it to taste like.  Much like film directors I never get exactly what I want, but I always find that fine line of happiness with what I made.  However this Pumpkin Risotto Recipe with Candied Pecans got pretty dang close to what I was looking for in respect to how it looked and tasted. I used fresh pumpkin as a garnish, not as the main pumpkin ingredient into the risotto.  In fact, I used canned pumpkin because…
