Every time our friend Samuel comes to the US for a visit he brings with him some delicious spices from his beloved country India!! One time he brought back with him nearly a kilo (2+ pounds) worth of authentic and homemade curry powder made by his mom. Wow! That was and still is, for me, the best curry powder ever, It was vibrant, spicy and made everything I add it to totally yummy! As a result, I have been cooking curry a lot and, as you can imagine, using it a lot, too. What I love about it is that it's so robust in flavor that even a mere teaspoon can truly do wonders to any dish that needs curry powder.

It was just one of those nights when I needed to make dinner but I didn't have enough time. Our fridge had a lot of food in it but it seemed that everything I thought of making required too much effort, lots of ingredients involved and quite a long cooking time, Making Filipino or Asian food was out of the question as that usually required a lot of prep time usually in the form of chopping vegetables. What was a mommy to do?

 With only 1 ingredient and just a few minutes to make these Parmesan Crisps are the perfect low-carb snacks or crunchy topping for soups and salads! Gluten-free!

Ever since I have tried these delicious Parmesan crisps I have been addictive to them! I have eaten these years ago but have never attempted making them thinking that perhaps it's complicated. Ha! I was totally wrong!! A few days ago when we bought some parmesan cheese from the grocery I finally decided to make it at home. It was so easy!! Crazy easy!! How could I have not done this before?

I made this chicken curry the other day when we had some friends over. They were all Asians - a Filipino couple and a Chinese couple. Now I didn't feel like cooking something Filipino or Chinese in particular 'cause I thought - that's what they eat perhaps on the daily basis so what's the point? Or maybe I was scared it may taste rather inauthentic so why risk it? LOL. :)

When our schedules are not hectic we love to have people over at our place. We especially love having friends from church during Sunday nights after the evening worship service. It's just a nice and perfect time to relax, enjoy each others company especially before we face the challenges in the real world the next day --- Monday! We enjoy some food and occasionally have some games that everyone can participate in. We don't do anything too formal or structured, the food is mostly the appetizer type - quick and easy in preparation. The point is to enjoy each other's company in a fuss-free environment.
