One-Pot Autumn Chicken and Rice

Today’s weather, okay let’s be honest the weather for the last few weeks has been damp with that distinctive chill in the air. The type that makes you feel cold, urging you eat something warm and delicious, but must be easy. This One-Pot Autumn Chicken and Rice is just that. It is truly spectacular. Oh, did I mention this is easy?

Munchable Masala Peanuts

Munchable Masala Peanuts

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.

My Hummus Obsession Ends Here: The Best Hummus Recipe, Ever

My Hummus Obsession Ends Here: The Best Hummus Recipe, Ever

I am absolutely, completely, hopelessly, ridiculously obsessed with hummus. I, like actress, Natalie Portman crave hummus and have the ability to eat my body weight in hummus (yes, that’s my pop culture reference for today.) My hummus obsession is attributed to my mother and my favourite restaurant, Nuba.

Sugar. Spice. And everything nice: Ginger Syrup

Sugar. Spice. And everything nice: Ginger Syrup

We are heading into the holiday season. Happy Hour. Cocktail Parties. It’s time to make some drinks and desserts, but with a South Asian kick.

This homemade spicy ginger syrup is versatile for both cocktails and non-alcoholic “mocktails” and even desserts. The best part is it’s simple to make.

Where did the inspiration from this Ginger Syrup come from? Chai tea, of course.

The Most Perfect Chip Dip – Yogurt Chili Dip

The Most Perfect Chip Dip – Yogurt Chili Dip

I love potato chips. (Yes, I have declared this in an earlier post). I eat them daily. They are my late night snack. An indulgence. A reward for completing as many items off project “work lists”.

I go through flavour cycles and varieties. Sometimes with dip, other times without. Lately, I eat only plain or rippled chips and dip. Chips, while delicious, have a lot of preservatives, so to create some kind of balance, I make my own dip. Need more reason to eat chips with dip? Chips are good on their own, but dip adds more excitement. Part of the fun in eating chips is dipping them into a cool, creamy, tangy sauce.
