        Raisin Cinnamon Bread (100% Whole Wheat)

          There are breads you bake as treats and then there are healthy breads, this one belongs to the latter category. I admit I am always skeptical about using 100% whole wheat flour in my recipes. Whole wheat is dense and hence I always end up using little white flour even when I’m trying to bake something healthy. But this time I was determined not to use white flour at all in this bread. I was looking for a healthy bread which can be eaten for breakfast without...

                  I love this time of the year! It just looks so pretty outside, the fall colors make the city look so bright and full of life. Nowadays whenever I go for my walks and runs, half of the time is gone in clicking pictures. Every tree looks spectacular to me and I want to capture it before it all gets over in few days.
