(image credit) Made another curry tonight, from this recipe. Was a little boring — probably the least tasty thing I’ve made so far. My first time cooking with mustard seeds. Was indeed cool to see how small they were, and heating them until they popped was pretty fun 🙂
(image by the author, CC0) Been eating lots of heavy recipes lately and not many vegetables, so made a lighter lunch. As per Wikpedia: Chaat or chat is a savoury snack that originated in India, typically served as an hors d’oeuvre at roadside tracks from stalls or food carts across the Indian subcontinent in India,Continue reading “Lobia Chaat / Black Eyed Peas Chaat”

I picked this black-eyed peas recipe because not only do I wantContinue reading “Dave’s Georgia Black Eyed Peas”

Black-eyed peas are traditionally eaten on New Years Day for good luck. The start of 2021 needs all the help it can get: I’m going to eat them all month. Here we go!
This is a blog about beans. I’m Heather. I started eating a much more high-fiber diet a few months ago (fall of 2020), and have found myself obsessed with beans since then. When one is obsessed the natural next step is to start a blog, so here we are! I’d never enjoyed cooking very much,Continue reading “About”
