Khichdi | Pretty Polymath

When I think of the ultimate comfort food, I think of my mom’s khichdi. It’s a rice and mung bean porridge that is mildly spiced and extremely delicious. Khichdi is a very personal dish to many in India. Every state, actually pretty much every family, has its own version of khichdi. People use various lentils, beans…

S’mores Chocolate Tart

S'mores Chocolate Tart - Pretty Polymath

Summer to me means bonfires, lemonade and s’mores. Warm, ooey, gooey, sticky sweet s’mores. Nothing makes a grown ass adult as giddy as making s’mores over a bonfire as the sun sets. The smell of the bonfire and burning marshmallows (don’t act like this doesn’t happen to you) just makes me feel like everything is…

Homemade Otter Pops

Homemade Otter Pops Recipes | Pretty Polymath

A few months ago I stumbled upon Zipzicle Ice Pop Molds and I’ve been waiting to use them for the summer. When summer rolls around, I usually like to end my day with an ice cold popsicle or Italian ice (Jersey girl issues). I think I’ve actually programmed it into my brain because when it gets hot…
