    I cook with garlic and often heavy spices. My daughter is going to help a friend who is going to have heart surgery. I would like to send some precooked foods/soups with her.
    Along with the heart surgery he has heartburn with anything too spicy. I know there must be tasty ways to prepare food that will be flavorful but not bother his heartburn.

    Here's a simple recipe I use quite often. The kids love it, and it isn't too spicey.

    Main dish is chicken breast, baked. In a 9x13 pan I line up as many as I can pack in there, pour one whole can of beer over chicken and pop in the oven........

    Side - I get a couple of cans of sliced potatoes and pour them into another 9x13 pan, sprinkle a packet of ranch dressing mix, then pour one whole can of beer over......

    cover both, cook at 350 for 40 minutes or so....

    And then the beer bread I make on the side [​IMG]

    PS, I brew beer for my recipes because it's too expensive to buy it 24/7 [​IMG] It leaves behind a great flavor, and the kids absolutely demolish it. i got a kiddo here who I think is going to end up having more stomach problems so I've been switching my cooking to non spicy and so far i have no leftovers to eat late at night [​IMG]
