So, I guess this my own personal fiefdom of a food blog now...

In any case, made 4 recipes featuring honey this weekend- first, Alton Brown's homemade Protein bars and granola bars, which are quite good, and helpful because I'm at least temporarily back on the workout wagon, and they taste a hell of a lot better than their commercial alternatives.

Second, I made a Honey-topped salmon fillet, inspired by my friend Roja. The recipe is from her entertaining cooking blog, Tameshk in Kitchen. I ended up cooking carrots and potatoes in the same pan as the salmon, as well as an onion, and at the end, I threw in some red and yellow peppers. This was very good with a side of salad, some bread, and a glass of white wine.

Finally, I currently have roasting in the oven a leg of lamb, prepared in a Kashmiri style. It's called Raan, and you first rub the lamb (after removing excess fat) with a spice mixture of garlic, ginger, chili powder, cumin powder, tumeric, cinnamon, cardamom, and salt (I didn't have the cardamom, so I didn't use any), then marinating it with yogurt blended with almonds and pistachios and honey. It smells terrific right now, and I also added some cilantro to the marinade. It's roasting with some onions and green peppers, which will hopefully caramelize.

Dearest JSA

Remind me next time to bring you some cardamom (هل); I know that you can get it from Whole Foods market.

Your blogs are very interesting; I am glad I clicked on the JSA link.
Hope to see you guys soon,
