Low Fat Daal Makhani

Daal Makhani is one of my favourite lentil dishes.  I've been making this recipe for over 2 years.  It's taken me so long to post because I have had the most difficult time photographing it.  Every time I took a picture it just looked so unappetizing.  This past week I finally got a picture I am happy with!

Syrian Kebobs {SRC}

It's the last Monday of the month which means it's time for The Secret Recipe Club reveal!  This month I was assigned Oh! You Cook! written by Dena.  Dena blogs about Kosher recipes and has written The Everything Kosher Slow Cooker Cookbook.  As I was browsing Dena's blog I knew this was an assignment I was really going to enjoy.  I've pinned several recipes that I plan to try out.  These Syrian Kebobs are actually the third recipe I've made from Dena's blog.  The only reason they got blogged about is because there were leftovers.  I have already made Baked Tilapia with "Crab Meat" Stuffing and Garlic Cheddar Biscuits.

Curried Zucchini Soup with Minute Rice® {Giveaway}

Rice is something I always have in my pantry.  We either use it to make biryani or it is accompanying one of many Indian curries we enjoy.  We have always purchased Basmati rice.  We have ventured out to other varieties of rice but Basmati has always been our favourite.  Recently I got the opportunity to try Minute Rice®'s new line of Aromatic Rice.  They have Basmati and Jasmine rice.  I was excited to try both of them, especially the Jasmine rice as I've never cooked with it before.

Upside Down Pineapple Cake with Blossom & Bean Vanilla Extract

I love to bake but one of the struggles I've had in the past was finding an affordable good quality alcohol-free vanilla extract.  I've tried some vanilla powders that were white which immediately tells you that it's not real vanilla.  I've tried some high end vanilla powder which was great but it's not readily available where I live and it's pretty pricey.  Actual vanilla beans aren't a good alternative as they are expensive and I bake quite often.  So I was very excited when Blossom & Bean started selling alcohol-free vanilla extract.

Pumpkin Waffles

This may be my last pumpkin recipe of the season....pumpkin puree is almost done and the last couple of recipes I've made have not turned out well.  These waffles on the other hand were a hit!
