Durga Puja Greetings + Pear Chutney Recipe

Happy Durga Puja everyone. Bijoy greetings. For Bengali Hindus this is by far the biggest religious celebration. In India it’s ten days long. Abroad, it’s more like two days and people try to squeeze in what they can. In mythology it’s based on Durga’s defeat of the demon Mahishasura. During this festival time in West […]

Rood Review: Gratify Gluten Free Cinnamon Baked Bites (Vegan, Product of Israel)

I really enjoy Gratify brand’s GF pretzels because they taste exactly as a pretzel should taste.

Black-Eyed Pea Dip Recipe (Georgian Lobio Variation, Vegan, Gluten Free)

Normally, the delicious Georgian dip lobio is made with red beans as posted about here. This new version with black-eyed peas came about because we had a bunch of leftovers hydrated after making Hoppin’ John. These legumes, while delicious are milder than the traditional so I kicked up the seasoning a bit. The end result […]

From scratch, the vegetables are boiled, drained and then pounded down, with water slowly added in to create a sticky, paste like consistency. It’s then formed into balls or “dumplings”. You […]
