Recipe: Aloo Matar Gobi

This is a super simple curry made from plenty of vegetables so that it is really filling. It’s a really dry curry so it’s especially good with some nice chewy bread or even yogurt as a side but it doesn’t end up with a gravy so there’s nothing to sop up. This would work really…

Recipe: Chraime

This is a great blend of fish and tomato sauce. It’s spicy, it’s creamy without cream, it’s soft but has a nice bite. It’s just an all around dish. This is best served over rice or couscous or with a nice crusty bread so you can sop up all the sauce.

A super simple side that takes vegetables to an absolutely delicious level. This comes together with just the chopping of a few vegetables and about 5-10 minutes of work making it a great side to make if you need something to spruce up a meal quickly.

Recipe: Hainanese Roasted Chicken

I make roasted chicken every now and then but I never posted a recipe for it because there’s not much to it. This is the first roasted chicken I feel compelled to share because it’s extra delicious and has just enough steps for me to feel like it might be a recipe more than just…

Recipe: Strawberry Swirl Ice Cream

This is a no-churn, no-ice cream maker ice cream but I learned a few tips I need to pass on to you. You have to have really whip the cream in order to get the height and fluffiness from the ice cream. You need to make sure your cream is at least 30% fat or…

Recipe: Cranberry and Apple Stuffed Turkey Breast

Okay, so this is not your everyday meal but it also isn’t all that difficult providing that you aren’t completely hopeless at pounding out turkey breast and tying things up with string. While it does have a few minutes of hands on work, after that the meal goes in the oven for a majority of…

Recipe: Ratatouille Risotto

This is one of those “best of both worlds” type recipes. Combining all my favorite things about ratatouille and risotto until they meld into one extra delicious food is a feat. This is a bit busy as a recipe but the end result is well worth the effort and it certainly makes sure you’ll get…

Recipe: Harira

I ran across this Moroccan soup a few months ago and figured I’d eventually get around to it and now it’s easily one of my favorites. With a hearty tomato and spice base it contains what seems like an overwhelming amount of things (chickpeas, lentils, and a small amount of meat as well) but that…

Recipe: Stout Braised Chicken Thighs

This is a pretty interesting stew. Using Guinness (or other stout) gives it a deep, nutty richness. The stew come together with very little effort but I still think I prefer chicken when its stewed in other things. The sauce on this one is also very thin so if you’re looking for a stew with…
