Spicy Red Lentils

Mmmm, red lentils. They have become a staple around here, as they contain a good boost of protein, taste delicious, and cost so little! I made these red lentils on the same day as my Roasted Squash with Tahini and Lemons, so that I’d have a protein course along with my veggies.   I served them […]

One of my favourite ways to spend an evening with my dear friend Pem is in the kitchen.  We have had cooking dates since we first became friends in high school, trying this recipe of her mum’s for a party, or that recipe in a cookbook that got one of us really excited.  It’s the […]

Guess who’s back? Back again. Heather’s back. Tell a friend. Guess who’s back? Guess who’s back? Guess who’s back? Guess who’s back? Heather’s back! And we decided to have another experimenting sister-date in the kitchen. This time, we were playing around with socca — a chickpea pancake from Nice of gluten-free proteiny deliciousness.

India: Spice Plantations in Goa & Periyar

One very last India post for you — and this is one of my favourite recaps! We were lucky to go to two different spice plantations when we were in South India: one in Goa, and one in Periyar (Kerala).  The pictures in this post are from both spots. We had two lovely guides, both […]

Jaipur, India: Lentils & Lattices

Mahara Jai Singh built the city of Jaipur, in 1727.  In the city, he built the Jantar Mahal, an observatory using astronomical instruments for astrological readings.  It’s now a World Heritage site, and I think you can see why: This is a sundial — and it’s really impressive (at about 4 stories high!): And it’s […]

Lentil & Root Vegetable Curry

This lentil & root veggie curry may not be the prettiest to look at (and photographed by candlelight and fluorescents doesn’t help, but give me a break, it was cottage time), but it sure is DIVINE. I made it as a vegetarian response to all the meaty/fishy things the boys were eating up at the […]

Channa & Aloo Roti (Trini Style)

The boyfriend’s Dad is from Trinidad, and I love curries.  So naturally, whenever he’s cooking, I’m in the kitchen, spying and taking copious notes. This curry is one of my absolute favourites, that I learned a few years ago and have since made my own: channa (chickpea) and aloo (potato).  It’s the base curry for […]
