Mango Yogurt Parfaits
A rainy Sunday calls for a sunny snack! Today's treat was inspired by the warmth and beauty of India ... Sweet mango purée layered with yogurt (infused with cinnamon, ginger, honey and lime) and Parle-G cookie crumble! I can see the sun peeking from behind the clouds.

When does my apartment in Brooklyn feel like a trendy restaurant in L.A.? When I made this incredible Fusilli alla Vodka with Basil and Parmesan, whose recipe hails from @jonandvinnydelivery (by way of @bonappetitmag ) Thanks for sharing this sumptuous recipe that transformed my table into the hottest ticket in town! 🔥

Ushering in the New Year on a sweet note! Tonight, I’m making “Shirin Plov”, a fabulous rice pilaf dish from Azerbaijan, rich with dried fruits and chestnuts.
