Continuing the international theme this morning... This time I'm tackling one of my favoite Indian dishes: biryani. My favorite Indian restaurant in the OKC metro is Himalayas in Moore, and their chicken biryani scores high marks in my books. They also have the best gulab jamun (fried dough balls in an absolutely sinful syrup), dal,… Continue reading Chicken Biryani with Cauliflower Rice
I've been bed-and-couch bound for the last 36 hours. A cold has hit me like a ton of bricks and I've been doing everything in my power to feel like a normal human being again. You know those jokes about how men are babies when they're sick? That's not just men. It's me. I turn… Continue reading Lady Bird Johnson’s Barbecue Chicken

In fact, I would say a good 90% of the people I know do not like cauliflower. I find that hard to… Continue reading Greek Chicken & Cauliflower Rice Bowls
Does anyone know how to pronounce 'gnocchi'? I've been saying it like 'no-key' my whole life and I have no idea if that's right or not. I'm just assuming the 'g' is silent. I've heard people pronounce it like 'noque-ee' before, with a more French-like annunciation on the 'no' sound. Who is right? I was… Continue reading Chicken & Gnocchi Soup
