Peas Masala Curry

@myfoodswings

There’s always peas involved in any scene of a movie where the parents make sure that their kids are eating their veggies. While it is fine to eat it steamed or boiled with some tasty protein as the main course, it is even more delicious when paired with Indian spices and flavors in a curry. Peas are a great source of vitamins and are good for your heart as well. Growing up, my aunt made this amazing peas curry which I used to devour with a plateful of chapatis (Indian flatbread) every time I went to India for my summer holidays. While this curry is not exactly the same as that, it does remind me of a bit of my childhood.

Artichoke Spinach Stuffed Pork Chops

This is one of those dishes that I adore, but don’t eat often. Hubby says even the name “Artichoke” does not sound like something worth eating. I love artichokes. But then our conflicting views are to be expected. I grew up in the shadow of the Artichoke Capital of the world, and developed my culinary tastes in the 60’s. What self-respecting hippie doesn’t love artichokes? Hubby on the other hand grew up in the mid-west, the meat-and-potatoes heartland of America. One thing I will give him credit for is his willingness to break from the meat-and-potatoes dishes of American and try new things. Generally, he gravitates to Mexican cuisine, but there are times when he will truly venture out of his comfort zone, allowing me to indulge my need to eat foods he’s not wild about.

Wow, that’s not exactly a ringing endorsement for this fabulous dish, is it? What…

Rhubarb Crisp

In Dianes Kitchen

Rhubarb is one of my favorite vegetables to use in desserts. Yes it is a vegetable and not a fruit like you would think. This Rhubarb Crisp recipe has that sweet and tart flavor I just love. I have grown my own rhubarb for over 25 years now. It is just coming into season. I wash it, cut it and put it into 2 cup freezer bags then I freeze it. That way I can make my favorite rhubarb recipes any time of the year.
