Are You Okay? I’m Not, and That’s Okay.

A quick note … I wrote this post on April 24th after sitting with this feeling for a couple of weeks. It’s taken me nearly a month to actually hit publish. I’m feeling a lot better now, and that might be the reason I felt courageous enough to share – I can see a light…

Stir Fry Aloo Gobi with Peanut Butter Sauce

Every home cook has a few recipes that they know by heart. Recipes that you can turn to in a pinch, and whip up on a busy evening. For me aloo gobi (potato cauliflower) sabzi is one of those. Other than chopping the potatoes and cauliflower it’s a pretty low fuss sabzi, and, it goes over well…

Now that the weather is starting to heat up on the West Coast, my kids are in the mode of asking for frozen, sugary drinks non-stop.

Three Things Thursday: The Final Edition

It’s been just over two years since Nisha, Salma, and I hosted our very first Three Things Thursday link-up. As they say though, all good things must come to an end, and this is final edition of 3TT. One of the reasons we decided to start this link-up was to meet other bloggers and create…

peanut butter chutney

Sweet and Spicy Peanut Butter Chutney

There are probably only three or four items in our pantry that get used every single day without fail, and Kraft Peanut Butter is one of them. Mr. T and the kids are obsessed with pb & j sandwiches. They could easily have one every day for the rest of their lives and not get tired of…
