Geera (Cumin) Chicken

I have cooked this dish following Chef Jason Peru’s instructions and my intention for this post was to mash it up and come up with my own version, but Chef Jason is too good. Here is his original recipe. You can omit the Garlic Infused Coconut Oil and use plain coconut oil instead as it... Continue Reading →

Cream Cheese Corn Pie

I always loved corn pie except for the fact that most of them contained eggs. I was looking for a recipe for the eggless version for a long time. Then, at a potluck at work, my boss brought this as his side dish. Below is the recipe as he gave it to me. I add... Continue Reading →

The first person I got this recipe from was Lera Fortune.... Continue Reading →

Is Ketchup The Secret of Happiness?

Mommy adores ketchup; it is almost an addiction for her. She puts on on everything from scrambled eggs to macaroni; cooking would be unfathomable without the addition of this ruby-colored condiment. I always thought it was strange - this all encompassing obsession with gloopy tomatoes, that is, until recently when I started adding it to... Continue Reading →
