Salvaging Easter 2013

Posted on April 03, 2013 | 1 comment

Pickled FishThere are many holidays that make me miss home. Easter is definitely one of them, and I have tried to do something special every year since I have been living in NYC. This year, because of my commitment to the Easter dinner at our church, I completely forgot about Easter in my own home, or doing something special here. It's easy to forget when you have a husband who is not really fazed about holidays, and no kids to start traditions with.

What's for dinner?? Chicken Curry!

Posted on February 26, 2013 | 0 comments



 This is probably one of my favorite meals. Once you have the hang of making a basic curry (and by this, I mean a curry that ordinary people would love; we're not trying to impress anyone in Bombay), it's a great meal that's easy and convenient to make. I often turn to this, when I don't feel like making anything too complicated. It's great on a cold night like tonight too. 

You can marinate the chicken ahead of time, by adding the chicken, a tbsp olive oil, 2 tbsp garlic and ginger paste (depending on how many pieces of chicken you're doing), salt, pepper and 1 tbsp curry powder to a large Ziploc bag. Marinate for a few hours or overnight, but remove from the fridge an hour or two before cooking to bring to room temperature. Alternatively if you did not have time to marinate it, just season the chicken with salt and pepper. Here's the recipe:

What's for dinner?? Rosemary and Soy Sauce Lamb Chops with Sweet Potato

Posted on February 20, 2013 | 0 comments

Let me just say up front, that I probably won't be doing this every night, but I will endeavor to keep you posted on what I'm cooking these days. Complete with recipes and pictures. And I'll try to do it as often as possible. 

So tonight we have Lamb chops on the menu. This is a family favorite, my husband's actually, and usually I make it a certain way, with certain sides (Roasted vegetable Couscous), but tonight I thought I'd change it up a bit, and try something new.  So I added sweet potatoes to the dish with the lamb and served it with rice instead. I also steamed some corn on the cob, and made a green salad. It was delicious! So here's the recipe:

My vegan kick... Recipe: Coconut Scones with glaze

So as those close to me know, I have being trying out healthier options for food lately. Although I still cook meat, I have cut down on red to once a week, sometimes once every two weeks, and am trying to incorporate more vegetarian. So I’ll share some of the recipes I’ve tried so far, much to my delight and those around me. I will confess, I might not go all-vegan just yet, but for now it has been fun trying out recipes, especially these baked goods, which everyone who tasted it, loved.

Recipe: Chicken, Mushroom and Asparagus Pasta

Posted on June 03, 2012 | 0 comments

Chicken, Mushroom and Asparagus PastaI expanded my diet recently to include a not so new ingredient- just one not recently seen: Asparagus. I grew up eating a version of this vegetable, the white one, mostly in pies and never took a liking to it. I branded all the versions the same; tasteless and weird. Then we went for supper and I ordered a pasta with asparagus, and it wasn’t half bad.
