Masala Omelette from “The Hundred Foot Journey”

Masala Omelette from “The Hundred Foot Journey” or India’s standard masala omelette?  Eggs whisked to a uniform consistency so the yolks and whites are in harmony, infused with spices, seasoned with salt and cooked in a big dollop of ghee.

Let’s not name names, but we know that most of our grocery stores have those lined up in the “candy” section. So a good quality chocolate that …

After-all you enable me to be a better me and keep me going for quite a while in the mornings. When you are with me, even the daunting workouts at the gym seem to fly by fast and you make those long runs seem so easy because I have the energy to “just do them”. So why do we need to talk? It’s not you, it’s me. I have been going into a …
