My favorites from this month:
Dijon-braised brussels sprouts from Smitten Kitchen: These were so good. If you like brussels sprouts at all, please go try them! The sauce is really easy to make (and I bet would be good on a lot of other things). I tend to eat a lot of brussels sprouts when they’re in season, as they go on sale for anything from 50 to 90 cents for a bag, so this is a recipe I plan to use a lot.
Baked Ziti from Mel’s Kitchen Cafe: I had pinned this recipe a long time ago but hadn’t gotten around to making it yet. I used a lot less parmesan cheese, heavy cream, and cottage cheese as I find that Americans like their dishes to be much creamier than I do.
Dal nirvana from Budget Bytes: I made a big pot of this and ate it for days. One day, I paired it with Indian-style creamed spinach and rice and ate it as the ultimate comfort food. Only naan could have made it better but I was too lazy to make that that day.
