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...

Basil Ginger Chai

Chai – so many ways to make it and so many ways to relish it. Mornings in India are incomplete without chai, I think nobody does anything till they get their fix of chai. With so much chai around, it was obvious that I grew up loving the drink as well. However my parents always drank the simple chai made with milk, water, sugar and loose tea leaves but I could somehow never like it that way. So when I grew up, I always tried making my own chai, sometimes with ginger, sometimes with cardamom and...

Cinnamon Sugar Tortilla Chips with Nutella Dip

I guess I’m the not the only one obsessed with cinnamon. It’s one of the most popular spices especially when it comes to baking and there’s a reason for it. You add it to any baked good and the flavor just doubles, really! Plus the aroma when you are baking with cinnamon make you feel heavenly, case in point being these overnight cinnamon rolls. <3 So because I love cinnamon so much and had some extra tortillas lying in my kitchen, I thought of creating a snack using my favorite spice and so these Cinnamon Sugar Tortilla Chips were baked and devoured....

Peanut Butter Sweet Potato Lentil Burgers

What’s the first thing that comes to your mind when I say Peanut Butter? I always think of chocolate first because peanut butter and chocolate are like meant for each other. I can never get tired of this combination.

I remember I was so excited to see what my mystery ingredient when I got my package. And as soon as I opened it, I saw a huge bottle of Sriracha Sauce! Yup that’s what my mystery ingredient was. I am well aware of the popularity this hot sauce has gained recently but...

Imarti

Even before I say anything I just want to say that this post is dedicated to my dad! He loves imarti (or Emarti), it’s his most favorite sweet in the world. I don’t think anything makes him more happy that eating hot imartis for breakfast. He often goes to Haldiram (a popular chain of restaurant in Delhi] to just eat Imartis, yes that’s how much he loves them! As soon as I made these, I messaged him a picture on Whats app and since then he has been saying it’s so unfair that we live thousands of miles apart. But...

Big Cluster Chocolate Granola

Happy Friday guys! It’s the happiest day of the week and what makes it even more exciting? Some chocolate of course! I am not picky when it comes to chocolate, I can each chocolate in each and every form. Dark, milk, white I love it all. I love it as it is and even it’s inside cookies, cakes or even granola. I guess you guys get my obsession with chocolate. Anyway, so what kind of granola do you guys like? Are you one of those who tries hard to find the big clusters from the granola box? If yes, then this recipe is for you – big cluster chocolate...

Aloo Matar Tehri – Spicy Potato Peas Pilaf

This dish brings back so many memories. Aloo matar tehri is a kind of vegetable pilaf especially popular in the state of Uttar Pradesh (UP) in India. Even though I grew up in and around Delhi, my origins are from UP and so this was something mom would often make for dinner when she was not in the mood to make dal and roti. I was not the biggest tehri fan around but that has to do with the fact that I’m not a big fan of rice in general but even then I enjoyed this dish whenever mom made it. It’s funny how you start missing these...
