It’s getting to be that time of year again!  I love when the weather changes gets a cooler at night and a touch frosty in the morning, but still warm during the day.  If we are lucky, we get that through October.  Perfect season to start making soups and stews again.  Here is my take […]

Chicken Tikka is a great way to enjoy Indian Food on the grill, so it is a perfect summer dish.  This recipe is also a great way to introduce Indian food to your family, since I have not yet encountered anyone who didn’t like it.  How can you go wrong with chicken marinated in yogurt […]

I had this dish recently at our favorite Indian restaurant. So creamy and delicious! Papachef looked and looked for a recipe; the ones he found just didn’t sound right or were so complicated they could not be easily replicated by someone at home. So he combined several recipes and tweaked what he had to come […]

We are so busy some evenings!  It seems this semester we are rarely home at the same time for dinner.  Some nights our best bet is to leave something simmering in the crockpot, and allow everyone to help themselves as they come in the door.  Not my favorite meal time tradition, but at least this […]
