Piccalilli Relish

Piccalilli Relish by Salad Foodie

The final harvest of green tomatoes I relegated to a batch of Piccalilli, a relish of East Indian origin. Just can't get enough of that lightly pungent and savory condiment....and it’s way easy to make using a food processor for most of the chopping tasks. Make a batch of this to give as holiday gifts, and to enjoy yourself through…

Curry Lentil Soup

Curry Lentil Soup by John Spottiswood

This is a surprisingly light and tangy lentil soup. If you are used to thick and heavy lentil soups, this one will surprise you. It's very tasty and was a great complement to the pizza recipe I just put up. This is also adapted from a Greens restaurant recipe.

Grilled Tandoori Turkey Tenderloin

Grilled Tandoori Turkey Tenderloin by Bob Vincent

This is a fun rendition of Tandoori. It is adapted from a recipe in Cuisine At Home seven years ago. Since most people don't have a tandoor; a wood clay oven, similar results can be obtained by grilling the turkey on high heat. Don't be put off by the amount of spices used. Combined with the yogurt and sour cream for the marinade…

Bread In 20 Minutes, Or the Fast, The Delicious and The Gluten Free by kathy gori

Every culture and cuisine has their own version of bread and I like all of them. Flat or tall, round, square oblong, leavened, or un, paper-thin or giant heavy slabs. I love the stuff. What I don't love is the mixing, kneading, waiting, rising,…

EGG PUDDING (LECHE FLAN)

EGG PUDDING (LECHE FLAN) by MARIA LOURDES V. LIPARDO-AYUB

Dr. Obaidullah was one of the doctors of the Late King Faisal of Saudi Arabia. His family became close to us and his wife, Aunt Munawar, taught me how to cook the traditional Indian cuisines. During our stay in Riyadh, I've learned from her this sweet dish. It's so simple, scrumptious and nutritious.
