Lemon Crepes with Blackberry Sauce

Time has been flying at some super sonic jet speed and we are almost into the last weeks of April. Which reminds me didn’t we just celebrate New Year?! But I am not complaining because my parents and brothers are visiting us from India in May end and I just can’t wait! So yeah end of April means closer to May means mom and dad will be here soon, yay!

Healthy Banana Oat Muffins

I think more than anything else, if there’s one thing constant in my kitchen, it has to be ripe bananas. Seriously I buy bananas every week and we never finish them on time. So they start turning brown and neither me nor hubby can eat those brown-black bananas, we simply can’t. I throw away a lot of things (I know such a bad habit, really need to change) but I never throw over-ripe bananas and that makes me feel slightly better about throwing all the other stuff.

This time around I had 2...

Pudina Aloo – Minty Potatoes

The weather has been really weird here, I mean I thought it was spring and it was supposed to be warm. But all of a sudden for the last 2 days, it has been really cold, like there’s a chill in the wind like it’s in December or January. Crazy right? I hope things change pretty soon! When the weather is cold, I crave for comfort food and I am sure I am not the only one who feels like this. For me like many other Indians comfort food is rice, dal (lentil) and some potatoes on the side and so I made these ridiculously simple...

Vanilla Donuts with Cookie Butter Glaze

There are days when you don’t have time to breath, like literally. Yesterday was one such day for me. I got up in the morning and then I didn’t even sit for a second till midnight. On such days, I feel like there should be more than 24 hours in a day. I think I told you guys before that we are planning to buy our own house and seriously that’s just draining all my energy. Weekends are totally gone in house hunting and sometimes I have to go on weekdays...

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?...

Overnight Stuffed French Toast

Breakfast – the most important meal of the day and I also think it’s the most neglected meal. Isn’t it? I mean I know so many people who skip breakfast or simply don’t feel like eating anything in the morning. I think I have mentioned this before that my husband was in the same category before we got married but now he eats his breakfast every day. I take full credit for this transformation 😀

Anyway even though we eat breakfast every day,...

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...

Easter Basket Pudding Cups

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? Yes you guessed it, food! Lots of treats, baking, good food it’s all so much fun! 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.

During my weekend trip to grocery store, I spotted Super Snack Pack which were bigger than...

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...

Broccoli Sriracha Omelette

What do you think people around the world eat for breakfast? I mean the most common stuff? Cereals, toast, eggs are few things which come to my mind immediately. These are universally popular, of course it helps that they are all super simple to make with minimal prep work. I do eat cereals and toasts on a regular basis especially on days when I get up late and have no time to prepare parathas or other Indian breakfast. But if there’s one thing I do not make often, it has to be eggs. Husband is not too fond of eggs, I mean he is okay with them in...

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...
