Forget the usual paty cake, make a cake pop instead!

How can commenting on cake pops be a bad assignment? Any project that starts with research by eating has my name on it. Thanks to the internet, the world is my oyster and so I eat, research, write and submit. This time, the rest was left to Phorum Dalal in Mumbai who produced this delightful article for the Sunday Mid-Day.

Eating Well: Chipotle Beef Potato Salad - OMG w/or w/out tortillas

I suddenly remembered this easy recipe with a spicy kick - great on the side, as a main dish, or wrapped in a warm tortilla.

Stew meat, diced potatoes, diced chipotles, diced red onion tossed with fresh avocado slices and lime juice.

It's probably poverty food but call me a VERY big fan of this basic, mouth-watering beef and potato delight!

The Garlic Waltz by the Garlic Jam Band

Here is an unedited video of the Garlic Jam Band playing "The Garlic Waltz" by Rutthy Taubb. Rutthy wrote the song, I added the refrain that goes:

"For more than just eating.
For hairlines receeding.
For love and to hang on the wall.
It's Mmmmmm and mighty and mystical magical
garlic's the best of them all!"
