I just moved to Amarillo, TX recently and I'm trying to find some good restaurants. I've been sorely disappointed by the Mexican food options, and I have yet to find an Indian restaurant. Found lots of good steakhouses, so I don't need help there. Also there are a lot of Thai restaurants but I'm not sure which are duds. Help?
A quick one-skillet meal of couscous with tomatoes, spinach, and feta cheese.
Chicken skewers are all too often dry and and flavorless, but a sweet and pungent marinade ensures this chicken satay is anything but.
If you love Drake's Funny Bones, you'll go peanuts over this super rich layer cake.
Crunchy, salty, sweet, and single-serving, candied cherry tomatoes taste as good as they look. Not surprisingly, the idea for these Cookfight cuties comes from Serious Eats.
A messy, yet satisfying Mexican sandwich of chorizo sausage, chipotle mayonnaise, avocados, tomatoes, lettuce, and Oaxacan cheese all topped with a fried egg.
Pan frying bananas in butter then roasting them with sugar makes them into a rich sauce for chocolate pancakes.
This is an ode to soup lovers looking for a meal in a bowl, with crispy fried chickpeas, tender chard and rice. Packed with antioxidants and fiber, it's also ideal for your eat-healthier, your-body-is-a-temple New Years' resolutions--no kale chips required.

A cross between sorbet and ice cream, full of both dairy richness and the tart berry flavor of blood orange.
The Kale Caesar Salad is a natural extension of the marinated kale salad, in which kale leaves are roughly chopped, massaged with dressing and salt, then allowed to sit. The beautiful thing about these salads is that kale is robust enough that it stays crisp and crunchy even after sitting dressed in the fridge for days. You can make it once and eat it over the course of a few days with no loss in quality. Caesar dressing, which naturally pairs with slightly bitter, very crunchy lettuces, seems like a perfect partner in crime. And it is.
Before the Bourbon Milk Punch (made famous in New Orleans), there was English Punch. Don't be afraid of the curdled milk—think of it as a science experiment. A very delicious science experiment.
Rich broth filled with bite-sized pieces of root vegetable and tender lamb, this hearty soup is much more than the name 'broth' implies. The essential elements of a scotch broth are lamb, barley, and root vegetables of various kinds, although many will include cabbage in that list as well. To me, Scotch broth is a root vegetable-based dish, with enough chunks of tender lamb to make it exciting, and a broth that is rich and flavorful.
This creamy, just-sweet-enough smoothie makes it easy to keep those healthy eating resolutions.
Vibrant tzatziki and tangy carrot salad improve overnight, making this the ideal DIY work lunch. Throw it together the night before and you're done. Start counting down until your lunch hour.
Perfectly ripe figs are so jewel-like on their own that they hardly need any embellishment to make a perfect dessert. But run them under the broiler with a touch of vanilla and honey, and you'll take fig perfection to a whole new level in ten minutes or less.
A one-skillet supper of couscous, squash, and pancetta.
Don't you hate the term detox? I sure do. It's not that after two months of eating roast meat, roast potatoes, pies, cookies, and cakes I need to detox (whatever that means), but honestly, winter is one of the greatest salad seasons with peppery, bitter greens, great root vegetables, and an excuse to put nuts in everything. Here are eighteen awesome winter salads that are hearty enough to eat like a meal, but healthy enough to make you feel good about your new years' resolutions.
A rich and moist gluten free cake soaked in an aromatic grapefruit glaze.
A warm pita stuffed with a tender, garlicky lamb burger and a chunky tzatziki full of fresh mint, chives, and oregano.
This simple baked scallop and endive dinner takes four ingredients (plus salt, pepper, and a lemon to serve it with) with no extra dishes to clean.
Sparkling apple cider, black tea steeped with cinnamon sticks and a few drops of lemon juice make up this tasty grown up version of a non-alcoholic punch.
Let's be honest. Sometimes when we say "smoothie," we mean dessert masquerading as breakfast. Not so for this lean green smoothie, which is packed with nutrients and nutrients only. Don't be fooled, though. It's also delicious. The mango flavor dominates, with the arugula, lemon, and ginger spicing things up just enough to keep it interesting.
Start the new year off right with this light and tasty quinoa salad topped with delicate greens, citrus, avocado and crunchy almonds.
This beautiful lemon layer cake is accented with blackberry preserves, white chocolate icing, and wafer cookies.
