Masman is one of the go-to meals in this house, especially when warm cozy comfort food sounds good. If we have potatoes, carrots, and onion we’re good to go. Easy. There’s also the curry paste, coconut milk, and all that jazz, but we stay pretty well stocked with those pantry items. This is close to […]
New post that is all Pad Thai all the time! There is no doubt I adore Pad Thai. I’ve gone around and around with the recipe. It’s really always good (except for that one time), but I’ve finally simplified the recipe into a house standard. Yes! That tends to be my way sometimes, spin out […]
The kid has a thing for hummus lately. He doesn’t usually go for wraps or sandwiches, but this day he allowed a wrap along with some fruit and veg.
I can’t express my excitement over finding an awesome falafel recipe at The Shiksa in the Kitchen. I’ve done “falafel” before, but it’s really just a veg burger with Indian spices. I love falafel, and now I really know how to make it!! Garbanzos, onion, spices….that’s basically it! Who knew? My only complaint is that […]
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. […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
It’s a travel weekend, so these meals are either to-go, “junk food” treats for the one at home (me!), or comfort food for the return.
Besides trying to keep a blog record of menus and some recipes I started a menu notebook late in 2012. At that time we were still meat eaters. This week I used the last page of the notebook, so we were looking back through the pages. It was interesting to see our quick evolution into […]
