Waiting For Spring Salad & Indian Sunshine Dressing

Waiting For Spring Salad & Indian Sunshine Dressing

So you know those Little Men books, specifically the Little Miss Sunshine one? Well, for as long I have known, I have been referenced to this book character. Believe me, I have the pyjamas to prove it. I think this connection is simply because I tend to see the rainbow behind the proverbial clouds in any circumstance.

Winter Confusion with Cumin Coleslaw

Winter Confusion with Cumin Coleslaw

Since it’s the first day of 2015, it was only fitting this coleslaw got things rolling. Why? Well, for many people, cabbage is synonymous with detoxification and weight balance. It supposedly cleanses the liver. Trying to not be overly presumptious, but there is usually a lot of cleansing, fasting, and overall weight management stuff going on in January.

Finger Lickin’ Fried Chicken

Finger Lickin’ Fried Chicken

From the grease on your fingers to the crumbs on your lips, fried chicken can evoke childhood memories from almost anyone. Even me. Sometimes I have a fried chicken craving from my youth. Unfortunately, my family were not, by nature, fried chicken eaters. At the Lehail house, KFC was the be-all end-all of special occasions. Buckets of chicken — with its famous blend of 11 herbs and spices — along with coleslaw, macaroni salad, fries, and biscuits, made appearances on occasions like New Year’s Eve/Day. Relatives and family friends were prerequisites.

A La Madras Beef Bourguignon

Julia Child. I could write everything cliché about this woman. But I won’t, except for stating my curiosity for food was cemented by this woman when I was 11 years old. Yeah, I was a strange kid.

Leblebi Inspired Savoury Roasted Chickpeas

Leblebi Inspired Savoury Roasted Chickpeas

Oh hello, let me introduce you to my new favourite snack: Leblebi Inspired Savoury Roasted Chickpeas.

I’ve been on a bit of a chickpea kick lately, if you hadn’t noticed already. It only made sense that I roast some up for a grazing snack to have on hand. Lately, I haven’t been consuming my daily quota of potato chips, instead I have been eating these roasted chickpeas by the fistful. They have a popcorn-esque snackiness. I can munch on them with abandon since they have benefit of being low in saturated fat and being a healthy source of iron and folate.
