Masoor Dhal (Red Lentil Dhal)

Comfort food for me definitely involves Indian spices.  I love the smells of cumin, garlic and onions wafting through the house.  There’s no way to beat it – especially as colder weather is approaching and the urge to hide indoors starts to peek out!

Kale & Lentil Dal

This warming-to-the-core lentil dish is perfect for today: our first day of snow!  Granted, it was just flurries, but we had snow!! Today was also my first day of Meghan Telpner’s 5 Days Low Glycemic Eating Challenge.  I had to get creative at lunch out, and so had egg salad on a bed of greens […]
