Simple Spiced Chai

This is how I make chai when I need something warm that makes me feel enveloped in comfort without the added calories of my former addiction: hot chocolate. It's spicier (in a warming way that is very soothing) and lighter in taste than any chai from a coffee shop. The method is also quite authentic. If you can, make sure to use fresh, whole cardamom pods, whole cloves, and freshly ground black pepper. You can also add a couple of drops of vanilla extract or use a very small amount of fresh ginger. The recipe is calculated with four teaspoons of sugar, but it is completely up to you.

Bisquick Naan

I attempted to simplify the naan recipes I've read online in order to use stuff I had on hand. So, this is NOT an authentic naan recipe. My family still thought it was delish though! Submitted by VLVTGRRL
