Twice Baked Potatoes (Indian)

This is one of my favorite meals lately, and we have endless combinations… lentils/spinach, garbanzos/spinach, mujadara, potatoes/peas, cauliflower, potatoes/tomatoes, potatoes/cauliflower/tomatoes…you get the picture. Now with the addition of tomato chutney I’m even more head over heels in love with this type meal. I was cooking for the in-laws, and I couldn’t decide between the aforementioned […]

Menu Board

This is what has been on our menu board the last few days. I already made the Indian meal for the inlaws, and that was a success. I’m happy to nail down a new recipe in the twice baked potatoes with a samosa flair. We tackled the “school soup” yesterday. This was a project at […]

Granola Baguette

I picked up some granola for a road trip, and it’s still in the pantry. You know how something is an absolute fave and then becomes yucky in the blink of a pre-schooler’s eyes? Yep. I’m not exactly a granola fan, but this particular brand is absolutely delicious, Purely Elizabeth. I finally thought to use […]


Something hit me and I just had to make this today. Super simple but oh-so-flavorful. We ate it with a dollop of chutney on top. Oh yes. I think this originated as a Lebanese street food? Wouldn’t it be nice if our “fast food” was so tasty and good for you?? Cover lentils with water […]

Tomato Chutney

I love Indian food, but I’ve never really been interested in chutneys. I always imagined it would be too sweet for my tastes. I’d rather heat things up. During a trip we ducked into Whole Foods for sustenance. I had samosas and what I didn’t realize was chutney as a dipping sauce. Amazing. I was […]

Fo Kah Chay

This is focaccia to the rest of us, but my 3 yr old assistant sometimes has his own language. Actually he sometimes INSISTS on his own language. Anyway…something inspired him yesterday, and he decided he must have some of this tasty stuff. Your wish is my command, especially when it’s easy and he helps. I’ll […]

Whole Grain & Veg Salad

This was supposed to by tabbouleh, but it’s not at all. Sorry. Dizzle is off for another trip, and he likes to thwart airport and road restaurants by having food from home. This time the choice was tabbouleh. Hopefully this colorful hearty salad will suffice. * The 3 yr old LOVES this. 🙂 This was […]
