I've got a thing for crackers. The thing is that they're my go-to snack between meals, but there's so much "gunk" in most types that you find in stores. Of course there are gluten-free options, but even some of those have sugar, milk, soy and words that you can't pronounce. So when I can't pronounce it, I try and recreate it at home like I did with these kale rosemary super seed crackers.
I haven't eaten Indian food since February. And I should mention that I really like Indian food. But I was in India for 3 weeks back in February, and I ate the local cuisine for breakfast, lunch and dinner. And it was a-mazing, but I was definitely ready for an Indian food break when I got back to Los Angeles. I knew no place would compare to eating Indian food in India, so I just didn't seek it out. Then Samosa House opened on Main Street in Santa Monica, down the street from me, and I knew it was time to break the seal.
