West Indian-Style Channa Wrap Recipe

By Joanne Bruno | June 4, 2012

West Indian-style Channa Wraps

There’s spicy and then there’s this: spicy that’s so hot you can’t stop shoveling it into your mouth, bite after painful bite, because the second you pause, you’ll feel the full wrath of the burn in all of its glory.

But when it tastes like this, it feels so good.

But behind all of that endorphin rush-inducing heat, there is a blend of warm and satisfying spices — ginger, cumin, turmeric — so that even if you’re not a spicy fiend like some of us you can dial down the heat (by omitting the chili pepper or using a milder curry powder) without fear of losing any flavor.

Cobb Salad Wrap Recipe

A day comes along every now and then when you look in your fridge and ask yourself “what am I supposed to do with this?” On these days, dinner can feel like a chore, but it’s a great excuse to raid your fridge and test your kitchen improv skills.

Keeping good staples in your fridge will make these days less painful. There are a few ingredients that are always in my pantry, fridge or freezer: tomatoes, eggs, mustard, chicken broth, and bacon. Adding one of these ingredients to a dish of leftovers almost always boosts the dish. Putting them together gives you almost all the fixings for a Cobb salad, my favorite hearty salad. Chopped into tiny pieces and tucked into a soft flour wrap, these leftovers make a fresh and tasty lunch.

It’s nearing the end of summer, but don’t tell that to the weather. It’s been really hot outside these days and sometimes you might just want to stay inside. But since it’s August, we should really try to make the most of the summer days we have left. Having an outdoor picnic is a great way to soak up the sun and enjoy the outdoors. Make sure you pack a light lunch to help you stay cool. Try to stay away from anything too heavy and take advantage of what’s in season.

This recipe is a perfect light dish that can be prepared ahead of time and requires very little cleanup. Read More
