I am finally here with the recipe for Naan. There are not many who are not familiar with these teardrop-shaped flat breads, soft pillowy cushions with rippled surface, and smothered with butter. They are utterly delicious! Over the past few months, I have been getting so many requests and seeing searches for Naan in my blog, I am almost embarrassed to have taken so long to come up with the post. As in all cuisines, bread is an integral part of Indian cuisine.
One of the highlights of going to my grandma’s house when I was growing up, in addition to playing Gin Rummy for money at age six, was raiding her candy dish. She used to have Jolly Ranchers, butterscotch candies, and after dinner mints in that little white dish with the lid.
Rich, nutty avocado is a great carrier of flavors, like the fresh herbs and cooling cucumber that star in these fresh rice-paper rolls. The savory dipping sauce features tart, sweet and salty ingredients that mimic an exotic salad dressing—fitting, as these rolls are like a salad that is eaten out of hand. In a small bowl, stir together the lime juice, oil, vinegar, mustard, soy sauce and brown sugar until the sugar dissolves; set aside.
This post was originally published on May 4, 2007 On these beautiful spring days, it's tough deciding how to spend the mornings: head outside and weed among the daffodils or throw on an apron and get floury in the kitchen? Here's a quick bread recipe that lets you do both--Pita! With a relatively rapid rising time (30 minutes) you can have the satisfaction of having your hands in both dough and dirt in the same morning. Just be sure to use that nail brush in between! Pita bread is something my family has been making for as long as I can remember.
Ingredients: Nonstick vegetable oil spray 1 1/2 cups bittersweet chocolate chips (about 9 ounces) 3 large egg whites, room temperature 2 cups powdered sugar, divided (plus 1/2 cup for cookie coating) 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder 1 tablespoon cornstarch 1/4 teaspoon salt
I've seen this recipe around the internet quite bit lately.. and I was a bit skeptical about it.
My roasted potato saga continues with a mustard version.
These little pies were so much fun to make.. so EASY...and so delicious. They went together in minutes and before long... we had fresh hot apple pie for dessert! Start to finish was maybe 20-25 minutes. I wasn't sure if I should peel the apple or leave the skin on, as the recipe didn't specify. So I left them on...I liked the texture and color it added. Next time I'll try without so I can compare the taste, though.
I don't get to the mall nearly as much as I use to, but when I do, one of my favorite things to do is to get a soft pretzel while shopping. Soft pretzels are one of those little delicacies in life that I'm not sure I can get enough of. So when Lee told me that he was going to make soft pretzels for the Super Bowl, I was psyched! We did a test run the Friday before and we ate the whole batch in one night. The night of the Super Bowl, they didn't last long either.
If you have been hanging out around Frugal Living NW for awhile, you know that I am a big believer in making food from scratch at home . With a few exceptions, I prefer creating something in my own kitchen to buying it in the grocery store.

YUM...brown sugar topping with pineapples and cake...brings back so many childhood memories. My mom made the best pineapple upside down cake. She would always use a cast iron skillet so the topping was nice and caramelized on top.

If you happened to catch my post on How To Skin Hazelnuts , you may remember me saying that I have reawakened my obsession with Nutella. You may also recall me stating that my pantry was in absolute disarray from the holidays. When I finally reorganized it, I happened upon a brand new jar of Nutella that had fallen behind my baking drawer – jackpot! This little find rekindled my love affair with all things Nutella in a big way.
