  • 15 Minute Creamy Corn and Potato Soup

    I had to share this with you right away.  Tonight’s creamy corn soup with knobs of tender potatoes and juicy corn kernels was sweet, spicy, fresh and belly warming and above all so quick and easy.  Here in New York, Fall has been rolling in and out battling against the few 80 degree days we’ve […]

  • Warm Bean Salad

    Still trying to decide what to make for the Fourth of July?  This warm bean salad is a favorite of ours – it combines the creamy, nutty taste of beans with tangy feta, crunchy sharp onions and juicy cherry tomatoes.  The key is to get the beans and the tomatoes mildly warmed.  This makes the […]

  • Shaved Rose Water Ice

    What is it about the smell of roses that’s so relaxing?  Stick your nose into the center of a rose flower and inhale.   You’re greeted with a heavenly scent followed by a calm that comes over you.  For me, there’s also a regatta of sneezes that follows thanks to my allergies.   Shaved Rose […]

  • My Secret Dream to be a Sandwich Artist – Aloo Gobi Naanini

    R and I don’t usually don’t have time to really cook dinner on weeknights b/c we get home so late, so on nights like tonight, we rely on heating up leftovers.  I had gotten a little tired of the rice and aloo combo, so I decided to turn my leftover aloo gobi sabji into a […]
