I started to write about "what not to eat" this week and was thinking about snacks. This is a pretty easy target on the one hand, but on the other there's just so much on the shelves now that presents challenges that it's hard to know where to begin. It's not that cookies are bad, for example - it's that there are so many bad cookies on the market. If you're going to have a cookie or a cupcake make it a really fantastic one, not a Mrs. Fields that has been mass produced with mediocre ingredients, frozen, shipped, thawed and just maybe baked properly.

I had these pancakes at my friend Mita Sujan's house. When I arrived she had started making them and insisted that I help (not that she had to insist). They are super simple and so savory. She served them with a fresh mango chutney which was similar to a mango salsa recipe (almost identical, really) that I have had on the web site for a long time.
