Cooking at Home

Michael and I love cooking with each other as well as cooking with friends. And now, with the start-up of Idyll Cravings, we are cooking for a whole new group of people! We also truly believe that cooking for yourselves can lead to better health since people are more aware of the ingredients and what they are eating.

It could be take-out, home delivery, eating out or driving through. Of course, we know there are lots of prepared foods in the frozen and package aisles in the stores, too. Here is a link to an interesting study about cooking at home.  http://bit.ly/1ViE4f6

When people cook at home they have so many more choices of what they get to eat and they can plan their meals around others in the household who may have allergies, specific food intolerances, dietary requirements or individual "pickiness". It is also a great way to engage kids in talking about nutrition, portions and food choices. We love it when kids are curious in the kitchen and ask to get involved. We had a great time not too long ago for a "cooking play date” with our young teen friends Sunny and Naomi. They had a ton of fun making spring rolls and dim sum.

One of the reasons we decided to bring our condiments, including chutney and glazes to the market, is to provide people with simple and healthful ways to enhance the dishes they can easily prepare at home. And without the fuss of creating their own sauces or risk of only serving "same-old-same-old" boring meals. Our Chutneys (some people call them Indian Relish) as with all condiments add flavor to dishes. The most common condiments in this country might be mustard, mayonnaise and ketchup. Try substituting some of those standards with our chutney on sandwiches, hamburgers or cheese and crackers. Create your own fun food for fun people with our Cranberry Jalapeno Chutney or the new Orange Cranberry Chutney.

Stay Tasty!
