When Did We Start To Waste So Much? And A Recipe Created To Avoid Loss – Orange Nut & Seed Loaf

If you have ever read my blog, you know that I am against waste. I have gone over how I feel when I watch home improvement shows and they go in and start smashing everything. Even things that could be saved and donated or even sold instead of ending up in our landfills. But the truth … Continue reading When Did We Start To Waste So Much?

Tomato Ricotta Pie with Garlic Herb Crust

I love the simplicity of this recipe! It’s perfect for a hot summer evening and would pair well with a cool Glass of Sauvignon Blanc. Enjoy!

Summer weather has officially hit the Southern California region. Usually May through June, San Diego County experiences a phenomenon we like to call May Gray and June Gloom. The weather at that time is in the mid to high 60’s. Though once July hits, it actually starts warming up and we had a bit of a heat wave not too long ago. Needless to say, who wants to sit by a stove or oven all night making a hot dinner for an already warm evening?

Chicken Tikka Masala

This looks so good that I just had to share it! I’ve always been a curry fan unfortunately curry does not like me back! I could eat it at home so I was close to a bathroom for the aftermath. And trust me, there was a nasty aftermath! Food in Mexico has nothing on Indian curries! lol
This recipe is dairy free for all of you who suffer from allergies to dairy. If not, feel free to sub in your dairy equivalent. Such as butter instead of coconut oil and cream rather than coconut milk.
Happy cooking!

Adventures of a Food allergy dad

Changing the world, one curry at a time.

Chicken Tikka Masala (small)

One of my sister’s best friends all through school was Indian (I guess she still is…), so I always thought of curries as that food I had at her graduation party. It turns out, though, that curry, chicken tikka masala in particular, is like an unofficial national dish of Great Britain. Around my part of the world, White Castle hamburgers are the ultimate “after midnight” food. Apparently, in parts of the UK, it’s chicken tikka masala. About two years ago, I had chicken tikka masala for the first time. I now understand WHY it’s so popular.

Here’s the deal with curry (the dish, not the spice – I don’t want to open that ridiculous can of worms right now): it’s an immensely complex dish. Or rather, it can be. It’s a super complex flavor, and that takes a lot of ingredients to…
