Aarti’s Lamb Kofte/Kofto Kebabs with Pomegranate Glaze and Cucumber Yogurt Sauce (Tzaziki)

I have been wanting to make this recipe since last year’s season of Food Network Star aired.  In this episode, Aarti’s challenge was to prepare a dish for a culinary legend to  re-invent a dish of the best thing he ever ate.  Unfortunately, I do not recall the name of the culinary legend.  All I [...]

Chicken in Tandoori BBQ Sauce with Scallion Blini

Here is a fun way of having chicken – with tandoori bbq sauce.  I was inspired to make this dish because my hubby loves tandoori chicken.  I am glad I made it since he really enjoyed the flavors of the sauce on the chicken.  My only comment is that you can totally skip the blinis [...]

Pulled Pork with Mango BBQ Sauce + Apple Peanut Slaw Salad + Sweet Roasted Yam Fries

I invited my Mom for dinner over two weekends ago and decided to make Pulled Pork Sandwiches with Mango BBQ Sauce.  The reason I picked out this dish was because we both saw it  air on Aarti Paarti and were salivating over how good the pulled pork was.   I thought it would be fun [...]

My Mom’s Favorite: Mango Chutney, Prosciutto and Paneer Garlic Naan Pizza

Many of you know what an avid fan I was watching the Next Food Network Star this season.  Originally rooting for a friend to win, after her departure I then became totally and madly in love with Aarti Sequeria, known as Aarti Paarti.  Her Indian inspired dishes with a twist have given me a new [...]

New Milestones & Aarti’s Green Minty Curry Chicken

My feelings and emotions have been exciting and stressful… Exciting… because it’s a new year that celebrates a new milestone. Stressful… because Ariana (my 5 yr old) broke her arm few days before starting kindergarten. [...]

Los Angeles Times Food & Wine Celebration & Meeting AARTI!!!!

I was super excited when I bought my tickets to attend the LA Times affair on Saturday,  September 5th – “The First Annual LA Times Food & Wine Celebration”.  My excitement was mostly to get a chance to see Aarti again.  (See my earlier post on my first encounter with Aarti.) This time around,  I [...]

Spicy Red Lentil Soup with Magic Potion

I chose to make this soup for its simplicity, interesting ingredient list and spices that I already carry in my pantry.   It is another recipe from Aarti Sequeria of the Next Food Network Star.  The soup is not only  healthy, but it’s full of unusual  flavors that come together so nicely. When I began [...]

Why I Decided to Make Indian Spiced Tri-Tip Tacos with Tangy Tomato Sauce

When I decide my menu for the week, I go thru a very selective process.  Questions such as the following start popping up in my not so big brain. Is it healthy? Will the kids eat it? Can I prep in advance? Will it be costly? Am I familiar or have access to the ingredients? [...]

My Encounter with the Next Food Network Stars

[wABar: 0375508910?aligncenter] I got an invite from my friend to attend a congrats party for her close friend – Doreen Fang, one of the 12 finalists for the Next Food Network Star.  I was exhilarated with joy.  My friend thought  I would want to promote our e-commerce site, monogiggle.com by helping with some door prizes.  [...]
