Lentil Stew with Sausage

(For stove or Instant Pot!) There are very few foods that I find as simultaneously delicious, wholesome, and satisfying as beans and lentils. When my husband and I were dating, he was starting to cook for himself more, but he expressed frustration at the difficulty of finding good recipes. My mind quickly jumped to this lentil stew, which I have been making and enjoying for years, so I shared the recipe with him. When he later told me that it was his new favorite food, I knew we had a shining future of culinary compatibility ahead of us.

Malaysian-Style Tandoori Chicken

My travel ambitions have always been largely based on where I would most like to eat. So of course, stereotypical gastronomic destinations such as Italy and Paris have topped my list for many years. Recently, another country has been racing its way up that list, due in part to the fact that I am married to someone who frequently raves about both Malaysian cuisine and culture (having spent more than two years there) and also in part to a wonderful Malaysian cookbook I found that I cannot get enough of (and which you will certainly be seeing more of).
