Traditional Indian Raita

I serve raita with almost any Indian dish I cook. I personally love it and can eat it plain by the spoonful, but it's also great to serve if you have some guests who don't have much of a tolerance for spicy food. The yogurt definitely helps cool things down. I think is complements pretty much any Indian dinner. It's extremely easy to make and will last a few days in the fridge.

Cream Cheese Frosting

When it comes to frosting, cream cheese frosting is one of my favorites. This is a really quick and easy recipe for a great cream cheese frosting that pipes easily and holds it shape. Use this on chocolate cake, carrot cake, or any other cake you enjoy. This is very hard to mess up, so it's a great go-to frosting recipe when you want something homemade.

Mesir Wat (Ethiopian Red Lentils)

With the cold winter we've been having I have been on a lentil stew kick all season. I have tried a few different Indian ones and came across this Ethiopian recipe which I was very curious about. I have always loved Ethiopian food, but had never tried making it since I wasn't sure where to start. This recipe is easy to follow and create a filling, flavorsome dinner. I served this with a side of rice for a hearty meal.

Mostly Homemade Garlic Bread

I am a huge garlic bread fan. I can easily finish off 5 pieces in a sitting, if not more- and this is usually on top of the main course and other sides being offered. One of my dear friends has always made her own garlic bread and once I realized how easy and delicious her technique was, I was hooked! The bread is store bought in this recipe, but the garlic butter spread is homemade. Serve this with any pasta dish, but it's especially good with a homemade bolognese (like this Swiss Betty Bossi one).

Crispy Speculoos Cookies

I originally came across this recipe while looking for a Biscoff Lotus cookie copycat recipe. My family and I love these cookies, but I wanted to try making them myself. Though this does not truly taste like a Biscoff cookie, it is a delicious speculoos cookie with fantastic flavors and a great texture. This cookie is now one of my go-to cookies that I know everyone in my family will enjoy. The dough can be difficult to roll if it gets too warm since it has a lot of butter in it, so chilling the dough prior to rolling is very helpful.
