Crunchy and Flavorful Kale Crackers  perfect with cuppa of tea!!!! This week began with not just the deep South but pretty much the entire East coast bracing for the inevitable; i.e winter storm Helena.

Finally there came a time during the day when that cup of Joe was going to feel lonely on our table (CHUCKLES). That’s when IRead More

Paneer in Cashew Almond Sauce

Posted on November 13, 2016

Soft cubes of Paneer cooked in a rich, velvety and a sinfully indulgent Cashew Almond and Walnut Sauce. I just can’t wait for this week to end.

These deep fried fritters not only are the perfect tea-time snack but also warm your heart on a cold, blustery day. This week we had the first inkling of fall here in Dallas. The temperatures dropped considerably and it seemed that relief from the oppressive heat was finally on the way. Ahh the joy of fall was very much short-lived since the balmy weather lasted for just 2 days. The bright spot was that the weather gave me a chanceRead More
