Quinoa, my new favorite grain… Ever since I tasted quinoa which happened a few months ago, I have fallen for it so hard. I love the mildly nutty flavor and the crunchiness of the cooked quinoa and the fact that I could combine it with almost anything impressed me a lot. I had already tried a few dishes with it, once I stuffed eggplant with quinoa cooked with...

5 simple ingredients and a delicious chicken dish… Many a times I’ve realized that dishes made with simple ingredients taste better than those made with over the top ingredients. I often fall head over heels for fresh and easily available ingredients. When I come across recipes that call for complex ingredients, even if it’s created by the most...

A bowl of soup to keep yourself cozy… It rained almost every day last week and was quite chili. Summer has definitely lost its vigor and fall is gearing up. Without a doubt, I love fall colors, the part that I hate the most is when I have to click the fall colors wearing fleece and¬†sneakers. How I wish I could wear flip flops even in winter, wouldn’t...

I overcame the temptation to use store bought marinade, instead made my own and grilled the chicken; it tasted fabulous… I had a great weekend! It was so beautiful and sunny with clear skies.

I am so glad to have stuffed eggplants with quinoa, it was delicious… This was the first time I am cooking with quinoa and I loved how fluffy and nutty it was.

My wait ended...

If you have tried drinking homemade fresh...

Chicken balls baked with spinach and stir fried with aromatic herbs… I got bored of cooking with chicken breasts, I cannot deny the fact that boneless chicken breast is healthy and rich in protein. So I still wanted to use chicken breasts but in a different way. I seldom had to think hard before about what to cook with chicken, but this time I had to ponder...

Sweet potato and chicken, a perfect combination… Seriously, why do weekends have to end??? I remember once one of my good friends answered to this question: so that we could have another weekend. Hmm, well said my dear friend; but still why??? sigh! Every Sunday evening I get the empty feeling and on top of that today has been a gloomy day with frequent drizzling....

Healthy breakfast in just 2 minutes, that’s what I am talking about! This is the perfect breakfast I could ever ask for, as it only takes 2 minutes to make and is quite healthy. This was introduced to me by my hubby, since then I’ve been having this for breakfast quite often. For a few days I added mixed veggies to the eggs, but last week I even tried...

Make these healthy sesame flax seeds bars and munch as much as you want… I haven’t come across anyone who dislikes munching. If we can make something really healthy to munch on wouldn’t that be the best snack ever? I love to munch especially at mid night during weekends. If it’s something unhealthy, I have to think twice before I empty the...
