Man plans, G-d laughs.

We make resolutions whether out loud, written or to ourselves.  According to Time Magazine, here is the list of most broken New Years resolutions.  How can we do better this year?

Do you need someone to guide you with exercise, relaxation, fiscal responsibility, educating yourself, or my favorite:  EATING BETTER.

I can help you with eating better and refer to some of the best local (South Florida) people to help you with the rest!

Morrocan chickpea stew

5 Aug

Morrocan chickpea stew

Sautée onion , garlic, carrots, celery. Add cumin, cinnamon, and pepper . Add 8 ounces soaked garbanzo beans and sweet potato along with 4 cups broth or water . Bring to boil, cover and simmer for one hour. Add 2/4 cup of tomato sauce and salt. serve with brown rice

I wanted to be more specific with this recipe which I made again. I had gotten part of the recipe on the package of dried beans and adapted some of the additions based on what I had in my pantry.

Soak half a pound of dried garbanzo beans/chick peas for an hour or more and drain. In a Dutch oven add a Tbsp. of olive oil or other vegetable oil to a pan, Add 1 large onion (sliced or diced), 2 to 4 cloves garlic, a few sliced carrots and celery ribs and saute on medium . As it cooks add 2 tsp. cumin, 1tsp cinnamon, black pepper, and add 4 cups of broth or water (By the way, don’t add the salt until the beans are soft). Cook for about one hour until the beans are soft . Add salt to taste. Add one peeled and diced sweet potato. when the potatoes are cooked through enjoy!
Vegan unless you used chicken broth.
Let me know when you try it.

This week I was scheduled to cook for the second time for a senior couple in Del Ray

Beach Florida.  An hour before I was scheduled to start shopping, I got a call from Mrs. L. Her next  door neighbor, also a senior wanted the same dishes, only packed singly. I told them I could give them a discount since I was making the same dishes for each.

I made them three main dishes, four portions for each family. I charged them only $259 including groceries for each, lower than my usual price of $275.00. the requested dishes included: Beef Stew, Apricot chicken, Salmon with ginger and Lime ( the recipe is in my blog). Also the side dishes broccoli kugel, noodle kugel, and roast cauliflower and Split Pea Soup.
when can we cook for you?
I would love your feedback. Helen@helenshomecooking.com or call me at 561-676-2078 .
