So, I am just wondering what recipes you ladies are finding to be yoru favorites from our chic chef repetoire. Besides recipes you have posted which ones do you find yourself going back to get again and again? Likewise, As we move forward what types of recipes are you wishing you had?

Garam Masala lentils and potatos

I made this for the family I work with last week and they found it to be yummy so I wanted to try it myself! I love how hearty it is and that it gave me another recipe to use the garam masala I bought for one of our other recipes and thought you ladies may enjoy it as well! It is a vegetarian dish and makes quite a large pot. They served it beside some basmati rice although that wasnt really neccesary.

1 lb brown lentils
1 1/2 lbs russet potato, peeled and diced
2 onions, chopped
1 can diced tomatoes
