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.

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.

Sometimes the simplest ideas are the best ideas. With the season’s hustle and bustle, this recipe has the holidays written all over it, without too much effort. They are perfect for holiday gatherings. They are so quick to throw together and they taste great. They are spicy, salty and a little tangy, the perfect snack with any mocktail, beer, cocktail, or even chai.

Double Dipped Fried Green Tomatoes

Double Dipped Fried Green Tomatoes

I enjoy eating fried food items from time to time (who doesn’t?). I especially like thinking of new foods to fry. These Double Dipped Fried Green Tomatoes have been floating around my head since I watched the movie, Fried Green Tomatoes, years ago.
