Over the past few years Indian food has become a favorite of mine. If you are a regular here, this will come as no surprise to you. I make it at our house once every two weeks at least. We have a local Indian restaurant that we like, but have only gone for dinner so far. At lunch they have a buffet, I am dying to go to the buffet, so I can try more things!
One of our favorite dishes is Indian Butter Chicken. I usually use a spice packet, so the work is minimal. But I have really been wanting to try it from scratch. I even had it on my Culinary Bucket List I shared with you. So I get to cross something off already! Hopefully that is motivation to keep going with my list.
I served it over rice, and with a side of homemade Naan bread. It was delicious. The sauce was rich, and had so much flavor. The naan was perfect for soaking up all of the extra sauce. No surprise this was better than the spice mix I normally use. Given how easy it was, and that most of the ingredients are pantry staples in my house, I know I will be making this again soon!
Please go grab the recipe over at Culinary.Net. I know you will love it just as much as we do!
I hope that everyone had a great Thanksgiving weekend. If you traveled, I hope you made it home safe and that your travels were uneventful. We traveled to Wisconsin to be with our families. It was so nice to have a week off from cooking, and get to relax with family. Now we are back though, and it is time for school, and schedules again. You all know I am a huge fan of muffins, and these are a must this week as we get back on track.
My 7 year old thought these were one of the best he has had in a long time. Chocolate Chip Muffins are normally his favorite, but he is also a fan of anything with cinnamon. So I decided to mix them all together for these. I am not sure muffins have ever disappeared more quickly from my freezer. He had them every day until they were gone.
If a recipe has cinnamon in it, I think you need to taste it! So I added a full tablespoon to this batter. If you don’t want cinnamon to be the dominant flavor, you could cut back to 1-2 teaspoons. But, I think you should go all the way It is fall after all, and cinnamon is the perfect fall spice.

The #SundaySupper event went Orange today. Pam, from The Meltaways, is hosting this great “All Things Orange” Event. There are all kinds of great fall foods that are orange; pumpkin, squash, sweet potatoes, carrots and more. But I am sure you could have guess what I would have picked, even before you read the title of this post. Pumpkin!! I am kind of obsessed lately.
So not only could you have guessed pumpkin, but knowing me you probably could have guessed muffins too. I am realizing that I am kind of predictable. But this is a healthy muffins recipe (relatively speaking). There is less than 2 Tbls of oil in this whole thing, and I used whole wheat flour! So you don’t have to feel guilty about having one of these little guys for breakfast or a snack.
Muffins always go over well with my 7 year old. But he is obsessed with pumpkin just as much as I am, so he loved these. I still have some in the freezer, which makes for a great treat after school. Plus, you can never go wrong when you add chocolate chips. If you wanted to skip the chocolate, walnuts or pecans would be great. Even raisins would go well in here, so have fun!
Avocados!!! You know I love them, and can’t get enough. Well today, I put them in hummus, and it is incredible. And, just so you know, I can’t stand beans. That is just how good this is! I am sharing the recipe today over at Eat. Drink. Love. Stephanie is in the middle of moving from Florida to Arizona, so she kind of has her hands full right now. I can completely relate, so I am excited to share this recipe over at Stephanie’s today. Go get it, and tell her I said Hi while you are there!
