Patatas Bravas for #SundaySupper

Hi friends, did you miss me? Well, after a month long hiatus I am inching my way back into the blogging world. I STILL don't have my computer back from the repair shop, so it will continue to be a little slow around here until I am fully functioning, but I was just to excited to miss this event.

Inside the crust you will find a surprise of rosemary, pepper, … [Read more...]

Sag Aloo (Indian Potatoes and Spinach)

With fresh spinach, tomatoes, and potatoes it is hard to stop eating and leave room for other dishes. The combination of spices is perfect. I used my beloved cast iron skillet for searing the potatoes. It does a much better job dispersing and retaining heat than a non stick … [Read more...]
