Vegetarian “Tikka Masala” Dish

I’ve been geHealthy Vegetarian Tikka Masalatting store bought Tikka Masala sauce and throwing roasted veggies and chicken in it for the past few weeks (when I like a dish, I really like a dish). While that’s delicious and quick, it’s probably not the healthiest. So today I decided to make my own sauce. This is based on this Skinny Chicken Tikka Masala recipe, but with on what I had on hand (and with veggies in place of chicken). Mom, this one’s for you 😉 Continue reading

Greek Yogurt Tuna Salad with Horseradish

Tuna Salad with HorseradishWhile I don’t like being a follower, I must admit that I’ve definitely jumped onto the Greek Yogurt bandwagon. I’ve used it in place of sour cream, ranch dressing (with some added spices), and now in place of mayo. I never really liked mayo much to begin with.

This is a very simple salad, but the addition of horseradish really made it excellent.

Curry Apple Onion Goat Cheese “Pizza”

Red Pepper, Artichoke, Onion and Goat Cheese Strata

I love making (crustless) quiches. I’ve made a bunch of them over the past few years, with a quite a few varieties – veggie only, veggie and cheese, apple and sausage, etc.

But lately, I’ve been seeing recipes for “strata,” which basically sounded like a crustless quiche with bread cubes on the bottom (although I think with the name, it’s supposed to be in layers). Here’s a spinach and cheese strata recipe from Epicurious, for example.

Finished Red pepper, artichoke, onion, and goat cheese strataThis strata idea sounded interesting, so I made a single layer strata with caramelized onions, red peppers, artichokes, and goat cheese.

Wow, was it good!! The egg-soaked bread is just so delicious, and combined with everything else – I can’t wait to have more of it. Yum.

Naan Thai Pizza

For New Year’s Day, my in-laws treated my husband, me, my sister-in-law, and her boyfriend to a dinner at the lovely Table 45.
This “recipe” is inspired by the amazingly delicious meal that I had there. It’s on the appetizer menu, but was more than enough for me!

The end result isn’t particularly beautiful, but it was delicious!
