We Tried It: 5 Ingredient, Greek Yogurt Bagels via PEOPLE

We Tried It: 5 Ingredient, Greek Yogurt Bagels via PEOPLE
Sure, I miss my family and friends. But when social distancing is over, the first people I’m visiting are the employees at my local New York City bagel shop, whom I’ve been missing oh so dearly since the coronavirus crisis began. (But seriously — I haven’t had a proper bacon, egg and cheese in over a month.)
Yes, I know I could order a pre-packed bag and have them delivered from the grocery store, but there’s something about a hot and fluffy bagel straight out of the oven that you just can’t compete with.

Crow and Clouds

The crows have been visiting the garden more as human activity has slowed elsewhere. This one joined me as I sat in the garden a few days ago.

The Chicken Curry That Put My Broken Family Back Together Again via Food52

June 1st, 2020 No comments

My strongest childhood memories are not from my own childhood. They belong to my father. I think of them often—children picking mangoes straight off the tree, chickens running free around the house, men measuring their wealth by the cows they own, and a village taking care of its many, many children—but I think of them most when I braise chicken in curry.

The chicken curry itself is a recipe passed down by my father. Each time he’d prepare it, and we’d sit down to eat as a family, the stories would flow. It became how we understood where he came from: not just through his stories, but in the ritual of eating in the same traditions.

Bourbon Fruit Tea Punch via Bon Appétit [Drink]

May 30th, 2020 No comments
I love punches and sometimes make a Dickens Gin Punch at Christmastime. The inclusion of my favorite tipple, bourbon, in this one makes me want to try it all the more. — Douglas
 
This recipe is from Vivek Surti of Tailor in Nashville, No. 7 on our Hot Ten list for 2019. His spiked fruit tea is intentionally not too boozy, but you can also leave the bourbon out. “When I was growing up here,” the Nashville native says, “restaurants had three drinks: water, sweet tea, and fruit tea. Our welcome cocktail is an homage to the latter, as well as to punch’s Indian heritage. (Punch comes from the Hindi word paanch, which means ‘five’ since originally there were only five ingredients.) I love fruit tea and wanted to bring it back—with bourbon.”

Curried Tomato Tortellini Soup via 101 Cookbooks [Food]

May 29th, 2020 No comments
Another recipe to try out and, perhaps, add to our Recipes in Rotation. With all this home cooking over the last (nearly) 3 months, adding new flavors to the menu is important. — Douglas
 
It’s a fortifying lentil and tomato-based stew, dotted with plump, tender dumplings, spiked with a range of spices, and boosted with plenty of spinach. It’s so delicious, and simple, week-night friendly, and great for leftovers. Also, no shame in using frozen spinach, here. It cuts the already minimal prep time here down to near nothing. Enjoy!

How to Take Interesting Photos in Uninteresting Places via Digital Photography School

May 29th, 2020 No comments
Having spent the past several months traveling extensively to some pretty exciting places, coming back home to small-town suburbia was a rude awakening for me to say the least. I was so used to having interesting subjects – be it people, landscapes, flora and fauna – at my doorstep everyday. I didn’t have to think much about what I wanted to photograph, I could just step outside and find something new and interesting every time.
