Springtime Black Bean Quesadillas

Springtime Black Bean Quesadillas are filled with fresh veggies and topped with crispy onion rings and spicy sweet potato fries! Served with Sriracha Mayo dipping sauce.

I have realized that people assume that as food bloggers we are making fancy and lavish dinners at home everyday. Umm No. I mean of course I love to cook and I also cook everyday but those fancy dinners are usually reserved for the weekend. Don’t we all want something quick and easy for the weekdays?...

Mini Banoffee Pies

How easy it is to fall off the fitness bandwagon and how difficult is it to get back? If only it was the opposite *sigh*. Do you guys agree with me? I love to workout and it’s an integral part of my lifestyle. I have never been into lifting super heavy weights and all but I indulge in some form of physical activity at least 5 times week. It could be zumba or a run or yoga , anything which makes me happy and calms me down. Now why am I telling you guys all this? Because almost a month back, I injured my knee while running and since then I haven’t done any...

Strawberry Lassi

Spring is finally here with Easter less than a week away. While I always want to share dessert recipes for holidays this time I am making an exception. Today I am sharing with you a super simple recipe, which traditionally doesn’t belong on the Easter table but I see no reason why it shouldn’t?! It’s fresh, delicious and perfect for spring. I think that qualifies my Strawberry Lassi for the Easter brunch. Isn’t it?

Lassi refers to any yogurt based drink in India and it’s quite popular in US as...

I love holidays because there’s so much fun and happiness associated with them. But you know what is that I love most about the holidays?

With Easter just around the corner, I knew I had to come up with some fun treat, something which was not only delicious but also looked perfect for Easter.

Crispy Oatmeal Raspberry Bars

The fact that I’m a chocoholic is known to everyone who knows me. I mean I can live on chocolates forever and will probably not need anything else. Yes that is how much I love it, I think chocolate runs in my blood! No kidding! When I started baking I wanted to add chocolate in everything and I still do because there’s nothing quite like it in my opinion. I am always looking out for different varieties of chocolate candies to munch on or to bake with.

During my recent grocery trip, I...

Mediterranean Lentil Soup with Kale

I jinxed it, I mean I jinxed the weather. For the last few weeks I have been happily posting about how sunny and wonderful it has been in Seattle but the weather changed as soon as spring officially started! Crazy right? It has been raining non stop, it’s grey, dark and so annoying. And this kind of weather obviously calls for a comforting soup like this Mediterranean Lentil Soup with Kale.

I got introduced to Mediterranean cuisine only after I moved to US. It quickly became one of...

Baked Pesto Pasta

Hello guys, sorry for missing in action for the last few days. I went on a mini vacation and I had planned to schedule my posts while I was away but you know sometimes there are just too many things on your platter especially at the last minute and so I was not able to do that. I carried my laptop along with me thinking that I would update from there but unfortunately the house I stayed in had no internet. I guess sometimes it’s good to take a little break! 🙂

Anyway...

Dulce De Leche Frappuccino

Are you a morning person? When I was in college I used to sleep pretty late, I think that’s a common thing with everyone during college time. But it’s amazing how a lot of our habits change with time. After getting married and settling down in life, I started sleeping early, in fact now it’s a challenge for me to stay awake till midnight. I remember recently we had this Indian-Pakistan world cup cricket match and it went on till 3 am in the morning. I can’t remember the last time I was up this late and trust me it was hard for me to keep my eyes...

Rava Kichadi

You know what I think is the most challenging part about food blogging? It’s being able to click what you cook before is disappears from the bowl! Seriously I have lost count on the number of dishes that I made, wrote down everything and then we ate it for dinner. I couldn’t click it! But then sometimes you desperately want to share something even if that means clicking pictures of leftovers, yes like this Rava Kichadi.

Kichadi in Hindi means a mix of everything, it’s a one pot meal made...

Mint Oreo Cookie Cups

I am trying to squeeze in one last minute dessert idea for St. Patrick’s Day. Actually I didn’t share any dessert recipe for this festival other than the mint chocolate chip ice cream and so I thought I should make something for you guys especially because desserts are the best part about this holiday or any holiday if you ask me! 😀

Have you guys tried mint oreos? The regular oreos are always present in my pantry because hubby is a huge fan. He likes to eat these cookies with milk and he eats...

Spinach Pesto

Happy Friday guys! So another week has come to and end, it’s crazy how time is flying. It’s mid March already and it will be Easter in no time. Sometimes I wish I had the power to stop time. If I did have that power I would totally stop the time because it’s running way too fast for me to catch up! Anyway it’s end of the week and by this time we all want to whip up something real quick for dinner, I mean elaborate dinners are reserved for weekends but on Friday,...

Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

As a food blogger, it’s always fun to come up with new recipes. I love to play with flavors and experiment in my kitchen and I could do it all day but sometimes we all need that classic recipe which we want to make as it is because they are classics for a reason and you don’t want to change them, just like this mint chocolate chip ice cream. Mint and chocolate is a very popular combination and you see it all over in US twice a year, once obviously during Christmas and second in March around St. Patrick’s Day. And...
