Green Lentil Curry

This green lentil curry made with green lentils, coconut milk, tomato paste and spices is an old-old recipe of mine that was screaming for picture makeovers.

Slow Cooker Chicken Tikka Masala

Just look at this slow cooker chicken tikka masala! Low and slow or high (hi) and bye. Fall and busy life quickly reminded me about my abandoned during summer months friend – slow cooker.
