Red Lentil and Potato Cakes with Harissa Yogurt Sauce

September 29, 2015

I’m a bit proud of myself for making these.  Sure, making potato cakes isn’t that hard to do, so why am I making a big deal about it? Let’s just say my time has been otherwise occupied recently. Meet Baby N! He made his debut in August. I think he’s a pretty good reason! Somehow […]
