Lentil Stew with Couscous

November 28, 2011

I'm always in search of healthy, parve dinner ideas that I, the pickiest eater in the family, can enjoy.

Parve, because that decadent piece of chocolate is waiting for me in the dark recesses of my pantry, purposely concealed from my daughter's field of vision. I don't share everything.

So, given that I mostly don't like beans, I tried putting something together with lentils, and subsequently threw in some almost expired vegetables. That's the fun thing about cooking, no one can tell.

My lentil, celery, carrot stew was born.

Paired with couscous, this lentil stew is both healthy and filling. You can also easily make this in the crockpot, saving yourself cooking time.

It's so nice to come home to a hearty, warm meal.

Best of all, this is so....


I love easy. Easy is my favorite word, especially when paired with dinner.

Easy dinner. I love that.

Sweet Corn Soup

November 27, 2011

Just a quick share here.

Corn reminds me of summer. And so, with everyone longing, reminiscing about summer days, I wanted to share a corn soup that will, if momentarily, keep you warm with summer memories.

This soup is remarkably easy.

1. Dice and sautee the onion

2. Add the golden, sweet corn

3. Add water and spices, boil, puree, and...
Don't worry, I'll give you the exact instructions!
