Move to the couch.
Adding a splash of half and half gives this quick latte recipe a rich feel. Same thing with flavorings – vanilla, cinnamon, ginger – add whatever you like.
If you are going to do yoga, btw – this is my current fav. Julia Marie will kick your ass but it feels good. I’m doing this 30 day challenge for the second time and it’s still A CHALLENGE. Exercise is definitely part of staying sane these days.
There is nothing like a Sunday morning and homemade biscuits. This is my first official batch but I have to say, they hit the spot. Not as good as my dear friend, Alisha, makes them but it was my first shot and I am happy!!
The weather has been back and forth on the east coast and the change in climate kills my skin. Here are two easy face masks you can make with ingredients from your pantry! They are both hydrating and soothing for inflamed skin.

I was on a Zoom with my childhood friend’s soon-to-be-hubby and he suggested a couple of recipes. He owns an ayurvedic catering company in LA and I’m constantly battling inflammation with my autoimmune issues. I have found Turmeric, also known as Haldi, to make a difference in my diet. It’s Sunday, so I thought, why not. Haldi Pani, Turmeric Water.
The trick, JJ says, it is to drink it warm. Not hot, warm.
I’ve been cooking Judy’s recipes in Quarantine and this one – this one, is a keeper. Judy’s recipes always taste like home. Most of them have been handed down to her from her momma (one of my second moms), Tami. We used to raid Tami’s fridge after school looking for her leftovers… the pasta with red sauce, the latkas, her pesto ice cubes. For some reason, I think this one is an original Judy – and now Jess tweaked recipe. But not to worry, Judy will surely correct me if I’m wrong. So here it goes: a butter chicken recipe to stay home for.
I will warn you upfront this butter chicken recipe is **spicy**. I will also warn you that this butter chicken is very delicious and may result in cooking so many times that you get sick of it. Proceed with caution.
I’m trying something new – phone savable recipe cards. For the printable version, scroll on.

If spicy offends you, cut the cayenne in half, at least.
Jess' version of Judy's Butter Chicken – if spicy offends you, cut the cayenne in half, at least. This recipe is very delicious and may result in cooking so many times that you get sick of it. Proceed with caution.
