I found your website around two weeks ago - absolutely love your recipes and the lovely photos!

I'm going to make your roasted tomato and garlic sauce tomorrow :D

*Edit* - I've also got the chicken thighs in the fridge for this recipe for later in the week lol I'm a proper fan girl!
Thanks. I enjoy doing my blog and take pride in my pictures, especially now hubby has helped me take better ones. Some of my very first pics were awful, but then the camera we had at the time wasn't very good either.

I hope you enjoy the sauce recipe. I make it often with slight variations and it is so handy to freeze and take out when needed.

I just had this tonight with my veggie pilau rice:


I like to add a couple of handfuls of red lentils to thicken the sauce and make it like a dhansak and I add a little bit of Splenda for that sweet/sour taste. It's also lovely with a tbsp of lime pickle (1.5 syns)!
Yay stacey good to see you back, although you perhaps have been posting and i have missed them.

Hows Canada treating you?
