Low carb mashed turnips is a great comfort food and also a good substitute for potatoes for those trying to keep their carb intake low.  It is also very versatile and marries well with things like finely chopped sauteed spring onion, chives, or even crispy bacon bits.  Even the most fussiest of eaters will find it hard to believe that turnips can taste so good!

Mulligatawny soup is a very flavorsome soup originating from India.  Translated from Tamil it literally means pepper water.  I was introduced to this soup by my mom in law.  She makes this soup so beautifully and I love the infusion of flavours and enjoy the combination of tanginess and sweetness.  This is so good on a cold winters day!

Our tomatoe plants were full of green tomatoes and I kept on thinking how beautiful they looked and it got me thinking how great it would be to try cooking them but how?  Then I thought of the famous American dish and a movie with the same title.  After doing a little online research I was all fired up to try this recipe.  This was a brand new gastronomic experience for me and I absolutely loved this dish as well as the "tart" tangy taste.
