Menu Board

Laksa was comfort food for Dizzle returning from travels. Chili and cornbread is today’s project, so I’m hoping to post both those recipes. I’ll probably do a couple cornbread waffles and do muffins with the remainder. We’ll also have a salad with greens from the garden including some spicy purple mustard greens. Rajma is new […]

Five Spice Veg

This was one of the first things I tried from my coveted Indian Vegetarian cookbook. I absolutely adore it, but I don’t make it very often. It takes a little more prep time than I’m accustom to lately. Lots of ingredients and spices that have to be prepped and ready to go before starting. That […]

Menu Board – International

This menu board is all over the place, and that’s just how we like it. Indian, Mediterranean, Thai, homestyle goodness. Loving having falafel on a regular basis around here. So easy and so much less of a gut bomb than the deep fried restaurant option. ┬áBonus…the little guy loves this too! Drunken noodles is one […]

Indian Vegetarian Recipes

It’s almost guaranteed that each week’s menu will include an Indian dish these days. It’s such a no-brainer because it’s always delicious and reasonably easy. Dali Ambat is another one of the Indian vegetarian recipes adapted from one of my all time favorite cookbooks, Vegetarian Indian Food. I like tinkering with recipes, but honestly if […]

Sweet Potato Tikki

Sweet potatoes are abundant at the garden these days. Sweet potato fries and African stew are a couple go-to vegan recipes, but I was looking around for something different. These are really easy and so tasty! When I need inspiration I often click over to Spice Up the Curry. This sweet potato dish was part […]

Menu Board

This menu actually started on Monday, so I’m way behind. We’ve already had drunken noodles, thai chili basil eggplant, and summer rolls. Tonight we’ll have laksa. It’s been quite a while since we’ve had that one. Dizzle asked for lots of noodles and Thai this week, so laksa came to mind. It’s one of the […]

Menu Board

I need to do yet another post for veg burgers now that I’ve got a good mojo for that recipe now. I made 2 batches last week because the 4 yr old is really digging those lately, made into cookie sized patties. He eats them with no bun, dipped in ketchup or mustard. The recent […]

Baguettes

Dizzle was quite the chef this weekend. One of his projects was baguettes, and he used the honey spelt recipe. Success! He also threw in a pinch of ajwain for a slightly Indian flair. I am in love with this new-to-me herb. It’s been in the cabinet for a while, and we finally used it. […]

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 […]
