It's midnight and I'm proud to say I have finished my four recipes. Two are done and the two others I just finished putting into the crockpots. They'll be done by the morning. It's later than I thought, but here's how the day started:I woke up at 7 a.m. instead of 5. Because I went to bed much much later than I thought I would. So...I was tired. But that two hours you know what that means? The rugrats are awake. And you know what that means? They're in the kitchen. Running around. Asking me for things. Trying to sit...

Peeling Eyeballs

Written by Anupy Singla

It's 9:42 p.m. and I am just sitting down now to actually even think about cooking. Why is that? Well, because dinner took an hour and a half. The kids and I are a little burned out eating Indian food so I thought I'd give everyone a break and make veggie sandwiches. Simple. Easy. Right? Soooo wrong. The little monsters couldn't even eat that properly. The only way I got them going was by pulling out the eyeballs. Let me explain. Back in 1986 my parents gifted me with a trip to Vancouver for the World Fair. I stayed with...

Many of you have already read the piece - thank you for taking the time.

Most newspapers would never have given a reporter that much leeway. So thanks Janet for being so forward thinking and for your thoughts on your blog. I think the spread looks amazing - especially all the supporting stories about Indian restaurants in the South...

For any of you that have been to India you know how amazing the food is on the streets. Granted you eat at your own peril, but it is so worth it. You can read all about my favorites in a piece that I wrote which will be published in the food section of the Chicago Sun-Times Wednesday, July 15. What I wanted to do was take well known street foods like chana chaat (garbanzo beans) and aloo ki tikki (potato pattie) and show you how you can make them very easily at home. We didn't have room in the...

The Experiment

July 13, 2009
Written by Anupy Singla

I'm not big into blogs, but I feel like the experiment that I've been conducting in my house over the last three years is worth sharing. My subjects are my two girls, now aged 6 and 4. Three years ago when I was struggling trying to balance motherhood with work and everything else that comes along with life, I stopped for a moment to think about where I was really headed. Yes, I loved work. I was the morning reporter for CLTV in Chicago and had been a business reporter previously for Bloomberg News, WGN and other stations. But, it...
