I have been neglectful posting on the blog of late. It hasn’t been for lack of worthy subject matter, but rather, due to laziness and distraction with other interests. A parcel containing 5 pounds of fresh Hatch, New Mexico chiles was delivered to our porch today. Faye had ordered them early in the spring. We … More Hatch Chile Sandwich
There was some filling leftover from the cheesy spinach jalapeño bombs I made yesterday, and I decided to use it in a French toast style sandwich. I spread the mixture of cooked spinach, cheddar, jack cheese pickled jalapeños, cumin, jalapeño powder and salt onto one of two slices of whole wheat bread. I beat a … More Spinach & Cheese Egged Sandwich
Ever since I saw Sandhya’s Jalapeño-Poppah-Aappah (https://indfused.com/2015/08/07/japalpeno-poppah-aappah/) I was determined to try them. Sandhya at https://indfused.com creates brilliant original recipes and has a knack for coming up with quicker, easier and healthier versions of traditional dishes. I didn’t duplicate Sandhya’s recipe exactly but hers was the inspiration for my endeavor. It seems that many of the South … More Cheesy Spinach Jalapeño Bombs
When I haven’t eaten in a long time and suddenly realize that I am ravenously hungry I am likely to indulge my more decadent cravings without totally abandoning a healthy diet. This was such a day.

Overnight freezing rain changed to light snow which gave way to sunshine but persistent cold temperatures. What is it about a cold wintry day that entices one to indulge one’s appetite? Of course, we were comfortable and warm by the wood fire in our humble abode. Faye mentioned that she was getting hungry, so I asked … More Mushroom Sandwich With Jalapeño Cheese Sauce
Since my recent self introduction to polenta I have been determined to kick it up a notch (sorry Emeril). I may have kicked it all the way out of the healthy eating department. So beware. After charring and removing the skin and seeds from a poblano chili pepper I sautéed it in a little olive oil … More Poblano Polenta With Cheesy Spinach & Burger Sauce
Sometimes I can’t resist indulging my penchant for cheese.
With milk nearing the expiration date it was time to make paneer again. This time, as the milk was slowly heating, I infused it with dried ancho chilis, cumin seeds and salt. When it was sufficiently flavored I strained out the peppers and most of the seeds, allowing a few cumin seeds to remain. The … More Ancho Chile & Cumin Infused Paneer
