The Easiest Thai Curry Ever

I love Thai food! Most Indians I know love Thai food, too. Both are Asian cuisines that use some of the same ingredients (coconut, chilies, cumin, coriander, and garlic, to name a few), although in different combinations with very different results. Both have curries, both

Chicken Stir Fry

I first started making (a version) of this recipe when B and I first got married. At that time, neither of us knew much about cooking, and I found a basic stir fry recipe somewhere and it has evolved from there. This is one meal

Basic Indian Greens

There are so many great vegetables that benefit from Indian-style cooking, but one of my favorites is bok choy. Perhaps it is the mild peppery flavor, or the slightly crunchy texture, or the fact that it goes well with just about any Indian main dish

Tomato Chutney

Every visit to the farmer’s market makes me so thankful that I live in a place where fresh, local produce is available year-round. I especially love summer and fall because of the incredible variety of fruits and vegetables that are available. We are nearing the
