This blog is dedicated to Mum, my greatest mentor. It is a compilation of simple recipes - Bengali, Indian, Burmese and Continental, among others. All of these recipes have been tested in my kitchen. Most use everyday ingredients found at your local market, but some use specialty ingredients available at Asian and/or Indian markets. Comments are welcome and members are invited to send in any recipes they would like to share.
The last time our grandson, Mayz, had dinner with us we had salad and I asked him if he'd like ranch dressing in his salad and he said he really liked balsamic dressing. So I made a very simple balsamic dressing today that was inspired by him. It tasted much better than store-bought dressing and took less than 5 minutes to prepare. It was a hit at dinner tonight! Besides dressing a salad, it would be great as a marinade for chicken or fish and drizzled on as a garnish right before serving, as well as a dressing for fruit salad.
