The youngest of my three sisters, Tracy, has gone on an Instant Pot (IP) bender of late. Don’t get me wrong, we enjoy using our IP just like Tracy! I just like kidding her.Continue reading
Tracy also has some comments about this recipe that she wants to share: Need comfort food? Wowzers! This is the most delicious way to cook lentils. I asked Urvashi (who is the author of all of the recipes I have shared this year) and she said it was okay to use any lentils but let me tell you that the whole black lentils are the yummiest lentils I have ever had! Don’t have an Instant Pot? Well, get one!!! Just kidding! If you don’t have an IP, just cook the lentils according to the package instructions along with the spices and herbs in the recipe. Lentils are so incredibly good for you and when combined with whole grain and dairy, they can comprise a complete protein. That is wonderful for a meatless meal or Fridays when you don’t want fish! This would be good over a whole grain pasta. Add a fresh spinach salad with other fresh veggies and you’re sitting down to one awesome meal.Continue reading
In my notes, I let you know about some of the changes I’ve done to the recipe. How I change it depends upon what I’m hungry for and what the spicy beans will be served with. It’s a versatile recipe. So, get in here and give it a go!Continue reading

This recipe was the first one listed in the first edition of the Tracy’s Christmas cookbook. So began an annual tradition that celebrated 20-years of recipes in 2018.
I have no idea the origin of this recipe. This recipe has been in our family for years as I remember from my youngest years Mom making them. The photo I used was the best representation of these treats.
Many thanks to my sister, Tracy, for starting this and shepparding it through all the years!Continue reading
