This All-American style baked Omelet Casserole is perfect for “special occasions” and for treating guests or relatives who have spent the night in your house.

Indian Lamb Rogan Josh Recipe

Share

Indian Lamb Rogan Josh is one of my all time favorite dishes. The marvelous flavors are of course one reason, but also the history of this recipe is intriguing. “Josh” is Indian for heat and passion, and “Rogan” references red in Hindi, and oil in Persian. Hence, this Indian Lamb Rogan Josh is a method of cooking lamb in a red, oil-based sauce over very high, passionate flames.

Kashmiri chilli powder provides the redness to the sauce. The creamy Greek yogurt and aniseed undertones meld together, creating a soothing, yet very powerful sauce. Lamb Rogan Josh has evolved over centuries; there are recipes now that call for various vegetables added in. But this is the age-old, traditional and simple, yet perfectly elegant version, in true authentic Kashmiri fashion.

Cheesy Crab Souffle – what could be better? For people who love cheeses, eggs, seafood, and have a flair for the more elegant aspects of French -influenced American cuisine … not many dishes top this one.

The soufflé first originated in the kitchens of France, of course. However, when French people began immigrating to America, they brought this delightful dish with them. Since then, French-American style soufflés have evolved and flourished. This Cheesy Crab Souffle is among the very finest!

Best Ever Superfruit – Baobab!

Share

I am in a never ending search for unique, exotic, and little known foods from ethnic cultures around the world. This search includes finding the best ever superfruit. In doing so, I stumbled onto this amazing fruit that grows on the majestic, indigenous to North Africa, Baobab Tree.

The Baobab tree (common name for the 9 species of trees in the genus Adansonia) looks like a giant, standing alone, high above the shrubbery in vast plains. And they are, indeed, very large trees. Adansonias often attain heights of nearly 100 feet and the diameters of their monolithic trunks will grow as large as 36 feet.

Immensely popular in Africa, particularly in the northern regions, Baobab fruit has been the planet’s “best kept secret”, when it comes to healthy foods, for centuries. I did some Google searches for keywords such as:

Many ethnic cuisines, especially in the Western countries, include eggs – by far the most common are chicken eggs. However, there are lots of other, unusual edible healthy eggs that are found in the cuisines of many cultures as well.

Before we get into these other, unusual edible healthy eggsunusual edible healthy eggs, let’s get something cleared up about “regular” chicken eggs that so many people know and love to eat. The common belief is that brown chicken eggs are healthier food than their white egg counterparts.

NOT!

Brown eggs are eggs that have been laid by brown or red chickens. White eggs come from white chickens. And the color of the shell is the only difference between the two – their nutritional value is absolutely the same and equal.

Now, when it comes to which chicken eggs are the healthiest for you, there is a significant difference between commercially farmed eggs and eggs produced by free-range, organically grown chickens.

Organic eggs contain substantially higher levels of Vitamins A and E, Omega 3, and beta carotene than commercially produced eggs. Organic eggs thus are not only much more nutritious, they are also tastier. Try a comparison and see for yourself. Additionally, organic eggs have lower levels of saturated fat and cholesterol, making them the far wiser choice for health-conscious people.

But enough about “regular” chicken eggs. Let’s now get into the main content of this post, and delve into this list of:
