Homemade Chai Ka Masala (Tea Spice)

Homemade Chai Ka Masala (Tea Spice) by Hina Gujral

This year for the first time I made Tea Masala at home luckily I had all the ingredients required in hand. A dash of Tea Masala can be used in cinnamon rolls, pumpkin pie, trifles or pumpkin cake, instead of opening different jars of spices it is always easy to add a teaspoon of Tea Masala.

Amazing Red Lentil and Tomato Soup by John Spottiswood

I never thought I would have a red lentil soup that could match the Turkish red lentil soup that I have been served in Turkish restaurants and that I've learned to make. So I had low expectations for this Indian spiced version. It completely destroyed my expectations and was absolutely delicious. It was great last night, and I had…

The Great Spinach Switch. A Fast Easy Lighter Version Of An Old Favorite by kathy gori

Still getting whipped around by the weather here in Sonoma. We've gone from perfect warm spring weather to hail and rain, to sun lashed by cloudbursts and windy gusts. Last night my little olive tree blew over. Time to replant. This morning it's crisp,…

Spicy Lentil & Bean Soup by The Kitchen Magpie - Karlynn Johnston

I have been looking for more ways to serve beans and lentils that aren’t boring, since my non-meat eating son needs protein in his meals.
