This variation of Indian spiced potatoes is my all time favorite. I think that’s because it is what I grew up with. Any time my Mom made potatoes this is what she made. The recipe is very simple in flavoring and goes really well with dhal (spiced lentil soup) and rice, or as a side dish with fish or chicken. Continue reading Turmeric Spiced Onion and Potato Curry
Ragù by definition is a thick Italian meat-based pasta sauce. In this recipe however I made a vegetarian version with mushrooms, bell peppers, eggplant, onions and garlic.
A pasta recipe with just two ingredients? Yes, that’s exactly what this pasta recipe calls for. Just two ingredients! Never ever did I think I could make fresh pasta at home, and that too have it be so easy. This is an awesome recipe that I got from my friend Rose who actually got this recipe first hand from a local chef in Tuscany, Italy.

I was nostalgic recently to have this tomato and onion dish my Mom and my Aunty Jaya used to make when I was much younger and growing up in India.

One of the ways we had bread was with tomatoes and onion sautéd in butter. We would have this saucy tomato dish with buttered bread and it tasted like heaven to us back then.

I had this beet soup at my friend Swati’s home back in December when we went for Christmas Eve dinner. Swati had wanted to make a red-themed dinner and on the menu was beet soup, beet salad, vegetarian lasagna, mushroom quiche, and fondue with homemade bread for appetizers.
Chocolate truffles are the perfect dessert for times when we are craving something chocolaty.

Here is a recipe for homemade Dark Chocolate Orange Truffles.
Stuffed peppers are colorful, healthy, and satisfying, and I make them often for dinner. This recipe is a great way to use up leftover rice or quinoa.
