Methi Chicken Curry Recipe Recipe

Methi Chicken Curry Recipe

07.29.14 by Jackie

I learned this recipe from my husband Lulu's aunt Huma. I call her Huma Chachi because she's Lulu's father's sister-in-law. She's an amazing cook and can put on the most wonderful feast in the twinkling of an eye.

Recently, Huma Chachi prepared chicken methi. It's an Indian chicken curry made with dried fenugreek leaves. Baby Aria loved it so much, I replicated the same recipe days later. It's best served with steamed basmati rice.

Cherry Time (Cherry Recipe Suggestions)

07.28.14 by Jackie

My husband Lulu planted a sweet cherry tree 6 years ago and it didn't produce much fruit until 2-3 years ago. At first, we only planted one tree. The next year, we learned that we needed to plant another tree nearby to help pollination. What we didn't know at the time was that they shouldn't be next to each other to form fruit but instead, they should be spaced out to ensure they didn't damage each other. Finally, with the help of Lulu's friend who holds a master's degree in horticulture told us sweet cherry trees should be planted within flying distance of the pollinizers. This year the crop is so huge that each branch holds at least 2 dozen cherries.

We've been asking friends and family to take some home, but we still have more, so I pair them with everything, just as I did earlier with peaches. Of course, we eat them non-stop but I also manage to cook with them. Cherries are one of the healthiest foods to eat, so why not take advantage! I've gathered 15 cherry recipes to share with you. I especially like cherries with poultry

Banana French Toast Cupcake Recipe Recipe

Banana French Toast Cupcake Recipe

07.25.14 by Jackie

Pain perdu (French toast) is my way to save day-old bread but today I added a twist to my plain recipe. I turned it into pain perdu cupcakes and flavored them with bananas and figs. To give them a unique flavoring, I used fennel seeds, which pair incredibly well with the ripe fruits. 

I'm preparing for an upcoming food project these days (I'll tell you more about it soon) that requires focusing on bread, so we end up with loads of untouched baguettes. Given my aversion to waste, this dessert hits the spot. Pain perdu literally translates to "lost bread” and I can assure you that none of it was lost!

Iced tea is so refreshing on those hot days of summer. Today, I infused fresh spearmint from the garden in green tea. The invigorating fragrance of mint makes it pleasing to even the most refined palate.

I just finished filming the cooking tutorial. You'll see how easy it is to prepare. Sit back, watch, sip and relax!

Asian-Inspired Charred Corn Salad Recipe Recipe

Asian-Inspired Charred Corn Salad Recipe

07.23.14 by Jackie

Corn is in season and it's very inexpensive right now. Charring it and turning it into a salad was a great opportunity to use loads of it. I wanted to give it an Asian twist so I dressed the corn with a miso vinaigrette and added diced, ripe mango and some sesame seeds at the end.

During our recent trip to France, I discovered the multiple uses of Le Puy green lentils. These French lentils are ideal when following a vegetarian diet (which is the case for my husband Lulu). Did you know? First, they're packed with protein. They were orignally grown in the volcanic soils of the Puy area, near Clermont-Ferrand in the heart of the Vend region of Western France.
