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.

Blueberry Kiwi Smoothie Recipe

07.14.14 by Jackie

I've tried shedding a few pounds since our return from Florence, Rome and Paris. Almost every year, the girls join me during the summer in my workout and diet routine. Mimi, Lulu's 14-year-old little sister, surprised me this morning and prepared the fruitiest, packed-with-energy smoothie. She didn't use any additional sweeteners, except for the natural sweetness from bananas, blueberries and golden kiwis

Mimi used our powerful Vitamix blender. For a smoother flow, she also added almond milk. When I first met her, Mimi used to have awful allergies with almonds, but since her teenage years, she has overcome this specific allergy. Unfortunately, we've discovered new ones, especially during our trip to Florence. She's allergic to truffle mushrooms now; go figure!

Strawberry Iced Tea Recipe

It's already our third day in Rome and I have to say the weather is really hot. So hot that pesky mosquitoes bit baby Aria and me so much! My husband Lulu says it's because we're so sweet. I like to think it's because of the things we eat and drink. Speaking of sweet drinks, I prepared a large pitcher of strawberry green tea for the family to enjoy after our visit to the Vatican.

The recipe is ultra easy. I steeped green tea leaves and added fresh, flavorful strawberries and freshly squeezed lemon juice.

Olivier's Grandma's Pithivier Dessert Recipe Recipe

Olivier's Grandma's Pithivier Dessert Recipe

06.13.14 by Jackie

If you follow the blog, you've probably noticed the "pithivier cake" cooking tutorial my childhood friend Alexia, her husband Olivier and I filmed during their visit to Silicon Valley. We've received great feedback, but many of you asked for the recipe in print for easier readability. So without further ado, here it is. 

I've baked another pithivier; they're so easy to assemble (we've made four already since I learned Olivier's grandma "Mamie Françoise's" 1930s award-winning pithivier cake recipe). It originates from the small town of Pithiviers, in the Loiret département in north-central France where Olivier grew up. As we mentioned in the video, "shhh," this recipe is a secret! It's only made with almond flour, eggs, sugar and oranges. There is no butter; the richness comes from the abundance of almonds in the batter.
