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 […]

Food Revolution & Jamie Oliver’s Strawberry Salad with Prosciutto, Halloumi and Romaine

Before I share my recipe I wanted to let you know how much I adore and support Jamie Oliver.  I  am very excited about his 2nd season that will be premiering this week.  His Food Revolution takes place in Los Angeles… in my city.  “So what?” you may say…  Well since I do reside in […]

Butternut Squash Soup with Lime, Sage and Parmesan Pita Croutons

If you love having butternut squash, then you need try it in a soup topped with fried sage leaves and pita chips… yum. It’s light, refreshing… I made this soup sometime ago, but have not had the chance to post it.   I apologize for the delay. This is a Jamie Oliver recipe and you can […]

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 […]

Celebrating Autumn – Butternut Squash and Vanilla Risotto

I love butternut squash and I look for ways to incorporate them in my food preparation.  When I came across the risotto recipe in Giada’s book, Giada’s Kitchen, I was intrigued by the addition of vanilla bean and really wanted to try it.   I added the recipe to my recent shopping list and thought […]

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 girls started school few weeks ago and I have been meaning to write a post to share their experience. 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 […]
