Eggless Gnocchi

Good morning everyone, This evening, we're going to have some gnocchi with asparagus and a little butter sauce.  I used to be afraid of gnocchi, like I am afraid of pierogi and making my own phyllo.  Not any more.  There are tricks to making the gnocchi light and airy rather than dense and starchy and … Continue reading Eggless Gnocchi


Pigeon Pea Dal

Good evening everyone, There are workmen here today, moving heavy equipment across my back lot to remove trees which are dangerously interfering with some power lines.  So I used any excuse to leave the noise and chaos and went shopping instead.  That left little time for dinner, so I'm making a very quick pigeon pea … Continue reading Pigeon Pea Dal

Dry Aloo Gobi (Potato and Cauliflower Dry Curry)

Good evening everyone, I hated cauliflower when I was a kid.  Hated it.  That's because my mother would boil it until it was no longer recognizable as a vegetable, leaving all that good flavour in the pot.  She was not a good cook.  That's okay, not everyone's bag.  Now that I know how cauliflower is … Continue reading Dry Aloo Gobi (Potato and Cauliflower Dry Curry)

Good afternoon everyone, Creamy, restaurant style rajma (kidney beans) is another common dish in our home.  This takes a little longer than one-pot rajma but is worth it.  I typically make this dish during the colder months as it is thick, comforting and warm.  Beautiful! This can be served with steamed rice, jeera (cumin) rice, … Continue reading Creamy Rajma (Restaurant Style Indian Kidney Bean Curry)

Black Bean Nachos

Good morning everyone, I wanted something easy and reasonably light for the family dinner tonight so I made black bean nachos.  A little different, a little fun to take our minds of brachytherapy.  Sorry about the lack of pictures - part of therapy seems to be a bit of a foggy headedness. These are delicious … Continue reading Black Bean Nachos
