Homemade Naan Bread

I don't think there's much better in the world than warm, homemade naan bread. Normally, naan is made in a tandoori oven, but my version can be done in in your normal home oven and requires no special equipment. Once you make it, naan will become a regular in your house!...more

Butter Chicken

I fell in love with Indian food in college. Coming from Small Town, Texas neither Blythe nor I had ever tried Indian food before we left our tiny towns for the big bad university world. For both of us, it was love at first bite. While chewing, we both looked at each other in utter disbelief. I didn't know that my life was missing Indian food until that moment, but I've done my best to make up for my Indian-foodless years since then. Today, I'm sharing one of our favorite Indian food dishes with you!...more


Many of the dishes I have posted thus far on my lovely little blog have not exactly been light and healthy. I've noticed this, you've noticed this, my waistline has definitely noticed this.

So for the next few months my recipes will be focusing on healthier summer dishes from around the world and I could not be more excited! As much as we love comfort food, Blythe and I really eat dishes like this more often and I can't wait to share some of our favorites with you!...more
