I’ll be the first to admit I get bored easily in the kitchen and am always looking for something new and different. I am enjoying two new cooking shows that are providing tasty recipes with things I wouldn’t have thought to combine. I really love “The Spice Goddess” which is Indian style foods and with a new Indian grocery just a few minutes away I am anxious to try some of her dishes, especially those lentil cookies. Pictured here is the basil beef (modified it by using two steaks and just a drizzle of olive oil) and artichokes with garlic aioli. I’m not very fond of mayo so I wasn’t sure if I’d enjoy the aioli but with a full head of roasted garlic in there it was pretty good. The basil beef was really lovely with the lemon and basil, a combination I wouldn’t have thought of on my own.
