  •   cld1968 Looks good Amy, but I have never heard of Biryani or naan. Is it pastas? 1d
  •   amy_donovan @cld1968 biryani is Indian rice and naan is Indian bread. =) 1d
  •   betheats Oh how I would love if archer would eat something like that! 1d

  •   amy_donovan @betheats My little one has her pickiness (won't eat most meat or eggs, which is challenging), but she loves curries, which makes up for it! 1d

amy_donovan Who else loves roasted red peppers? I make my own! Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Wash + cut peppers (removing membranes + seeds), place peppers cut side-down on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake for 30-40 minutes until charred + skins are wrinkly. Transfer to a bowl, cover, and let cool for 30 minutes (or more). Skins will easily peel off once cooled, discard the skins, chop the peppers, + use in your favorite roasted red pepper recipe. 🏻 1w
