Here it is! My most loved and used recipe. Well… maybe second to my cupcake recipe, which is still top secret. I have been testing this recipe for two months now and it has solved so many of my skin problems. I am really feeling good about my skin lately and I hope that this recipe will make you feel good about yours too.
The weather here has been delightful. Warm, sunny days. Rainy, cool nights. Ohio is lush and green and happening!
What is orange curry you ask? Well it’s not a real thing… technically. Technically this is a red curry but since I used orange vegetables and because this is not a traditional recipe, I renamed it orange. This is an incredibly flavorful meal that comes together in just 20 minutes and is chock full of healthy ingredients. Try something new this week!
But I am good at improvising! So without having a Tandoor oven or years of experience under my belt, I set out to replicate the chewy, satisfying flavor of naan bread to go with my Easy Orange Curry recipe. I know this may seem goofy but I’ll tell ya’ it was quite delicious to scoop with and really did have that chewy, rich texture that I was looking for. Make some and see!
If there was ever a topic that I would be considered an expert on, it’s living with tiny closets. Our house is a delightful 1000 square feet of 50’s bliss, but 50’s houses have one major challenge- closets! My grandma explained to me that houses of this era and older have such small closets because people had so few clothes back then, just some work clothes and a couple of nice church outfits. Well times have changed but many people, like myself, still live with these relics. If you do a Google search for tips on organizing small closets, you will likely find big beautiful organization systems and substantial spaces that are barely filled. But that’s not helpful! I’m talking puny. If you want to know how to use an itty bitty, microscopic closet in real life then you’ve come to the right place. Here’s the real life truth about how to make tiny closets work.
My pal Dan over at Dan330 sent me a message the other day and said, ‘hey I’m getting into the spice business, will you check these out?’ Of course I said yes! I was so excited when my bundle of spice mixes arrived; I got right to work coating this and sprinkling on that. What I ended up with was this gorgeous, big time flavor tater.
Traditional oat bars are chocked full of butter, sometimes several sticks, but this recipe is butter-free and perfect for snacks, breakfast, or even dessert. The ingredients are flexible so you could health it up even more by using wheat flour and throwing in some flax seeds. Get crazy with your healthy self!
I invented this recipe while in search of a healthy holiday appetizer to bring alongside the bread and cream cheese and butter and candy that graced our parties. To which my husband informed that me that healthy options at holiday tables are dumb. I love him dearly but sometimes I just want to throw a carrot right at his head. Or dump peas on his lap.
So I whipped up a lemony bean dip, a sweet sun-dried tomato topping, and carved out my cucumber rounds to bring to my grandmas. But with all the bread and cream cheese and butter and candy, I forgot the cucumbers!! So in lieu of bite sized cuke cuties, I flopped the bean dip in a bowl, topped it with the tomatoes and served it alongside crackers and the veggie tray. It was still a big hit and I was happy to have something light to munch on.
Happy New Year everyone!! I hope you’ve been accomplishing all of your goals! Redoing this office has been a major goal of mine this year and I’m happy to say that it is checked off the list by mid January. Come and see what went into building this custom desk out of stock cabinets.
