I used to be the blogger called YAL Book Briefs, but I grew bored of the handle and changed my name to Howdy YAL. I also respond to MJ. I like to read, write, eat truffles, and watch bad Lifetime movies.
Indian food is tough. My sister made tikka masala in the slow cooker the other week, I don't think it's probably a good idea to make it it for a dinner party when you don't know what the heck you're doing.
