I don’t know about you, but I can feel Winter just creeping out the back door, like a lame uninvited guest to a party. Go ahead Winter, we won’t miss you. But before you go, let’s acknowledge you with one of my favorite stormy night meals: The Great Chana Masala

Dinner: Chicken Chile

On January 24, 2012 By admin

So. Here’s how it goes at our house: Sundays are insane. We wake up early. We go to church. We have meetings (before and after church). We play our instruments. We have people dropping by to say “Hi!”. We eat a serious amount of comfort food. We collapse on the couch. Because of the intense [...]

Ahhhhh, comfort food. Here we go with another gem. My dear friends in Berkeley make this all the time. I was introduced to the dish when we were invited to their summer wonderland at Lake Tahoe. After a long day on the beach, the sun goes down and a breeze hits the air. You keep [...]

On September 24, 2011 By admin

If you’ve ever had a baby and someone has brought you dinner, you never forget what they bring. Well let me rephrase that–If someone brings you dinner after you have a baby, chances are you’ll remember their meal. I remember some postpartum meals being the very best thing I ever placed in my mouth. This [...]
