It's holiday cookie time: 7 recipes to try

The merriment of the holidays is built on many things: Cheerful wishes of happiness and goodwill from strangers. Cultural memories of sleigh rides across fields of sparkling snow. Even the joy to be found in giving gifts to friends and loved ones.

Diabetes Quick Fix: Indian-Spiced Chicken with Cumin-Scented Rice and Spinach

Tandoori chicken, with its delicate blend of spices and intriguing aroma, is one of my favorite Indian dishes. One characteristic of the dish is it is cooked in a special tandoor oven in most restaurants. Another important characteristic is the ginger, garlic, coriander and cayenne yogurt sauce that it is cooked in. For this dinner, I have captured the essence of tandoori chicken with this easy yogurt sauce. Although not made in a special oven, the meal fills my requirement for some great Indian food that can be prepared quickly.
