Easy Aloo Palak

Aloo Palak (Spinach & Potato Curry) is one of the most popular Indian dishes where spinach and potatoes are cooked together with spices. Naturally vegetarian and vegan, my easy homemade version of aloo palak uses minimal spices which makes it so comforting. Tastes best with flatbread like roti or paratha!

Potatoes are added to a lot of Indian curries and gravies. I think we have this habit of adding potatoes to anything and...

One of my favorite dips – Baba Ganoush is middle eastern eggplant dip made with eggplant (of course!), tahini, garlic and lemon juice!

When you eat out mostly on weekends (like me!), you obviously try a lot of new stuff. I mean when you are eating out every Saturday and Sunday, you can’t be going to the same restaurants over and over again. Of course we do have our favorites and we go there often but we also regularly try new restaurants and cuisines. You might...

Easy Mango Avocado Salsa is one of my favorite summer salsa! It’s full of fresh flavors and really easy to put together.

It’s been so hot here last couple of days that we bought a portable AC! Yes I would have never thought that we would need an air conditioner here.

This whole weekend we were running around getting things done around the house....
