My Garlicky Khichidi is delicious Indian comfort combining rice and moong dal together with a hint of roasted garlic - making the dish very nutritious as well. Served simply with an Indian salad, yogurt and papad (lentil wafers) - you have a complete & tasty meal on the table in no time!

I like to save money on food. Buying several kinds of candy for dessert plates can be expensive. My White Fudge Recipe can yield quite a few unique types of candy, just by changing the add-ins and coatings. A sandwich can stand alone, but adding a small sweet treat can enhance your sandwich meal.

Stunning results in the kitchen require the right ingredients. Sourcing ingredients for Mexican food ranges from super easy to super hard. Here are two solutions that pay big dividends in final results. Two essential Mexican condiments: "salsa en polvo," or powdered salsa, and Mexican crema.

Soup is an awesome way to make a nutritious meal with little or no fuss involved. Dried lentils cook up faster than most legumes and contain ample protein for this soup to be a meatless recipe. With the addition of tomatoes, onions, garlic and aromatic herbs, this soup is healthy and delicious!

When Peter F May visited Callaway Vineyards and Winery in 2002 it was the largest winery in in California’s Temecula Valley. Now under private ownership it is a small boutique operation hand making quality wines. Peter took a tour.

If you are a coconut lover and you have never ever made coconut macaroons, then you have to think again and try my Toasted Coconut Macaroon Recipe. They are so easy and inexpensive to make. They are moist, chewy and decandant enough to add to any holiday cookie tray.

Are you looking for a lighter, healthier slaw version? If so, you have to try my Light & Healthy Southwestern Coleslaw recipe. It's packed with fresh ingredients, a light vinaigrette with a little hint of of the southwest. This easy to make slaw is mildly spicy, crunchy, flavorful and low cal!

I had an Italian friend who once shared a fable with me. I’d like to share it with you ... Once upon a time, there was a snake who lived among the fall leaves, rocks and grasses in a large field by a river.

Fajitas don't come to mind as traditional Southern food, but they do hail from the American Southwest. Juicy, marinated strips of meat grilled to perfection, wrapped in warm tortillas and served with fresh salsa, lime and guacamole...a perfect meal any day of the year.

Here's a birthday celebration that will leave everyone cheering! Girls love to imagine themselves cheering their team to victory. Pom poms rustling, cheers being chanted, and spirit in the air! So what a great idea for a birthday party, a cheerleading theme!

Some cocktails are best served very cold. Freezer cold. Martini, anyone? These are serious cocktails you can make right in the liquor bottle. Store them in the freezer for a quick individual cocktail and, prepped in advance as they are, they make easy work of serving a party crowd.

One of my favourite Thai Curries that is perfect for family and friends. The exotic Thai Flavoursl meld with fresh pineapple and duck. I have used French style Canard Confit with rave reviews!
