NOB: New/Old Blog

My (our) other blog, Welcome to Peace and Solitude, has been re-formatted.  We no longer live in peace and solitude, we live in a tasty Indian Kitchen (not really).  We will be documenting all the delicious indian recipes and techniques that we have learned, and the new ones that we try.  Link is in the sidebar.
