Crispy and crunchy quinoa cutlets… It’s supposed to be Spring season, but it looks and feels like we are having Monsoon season. It’s been raining so heavily without any break for the past couple of weeks. I do enjoy standing beside the window and to watch the rain showers, of course sipping a cup of cappuccino does add more enjoyment. It’s...

Easiest cornmeal barfi that can be enjoyed without much guilt… All I can say is that I am still alive and kicking. Yesterday was the most scariest yet the most appreciated day in my life. I encountered death for a couple of minutes, if I hadn’t reacted instantly I would have been crushed by 4 cars. Almighty God showered me with enormous amount of blessings...

I could have this healthy dinner almost everyday… A couple of days ago, I had a conversation about face (of all the things in the world:)) with one of my friends. We both fall into the same category of having chubby/round faces with skinny bodies. Often times, weight gain is first apparent on the face and is an indicator for me to go workout. In 2010, I...

Pureed caramelized onions made this veggie dish tasty… After a week long of blowing the nose and sipping chukku kaapi, cold viruses finally set me free. I feel energized, focused and hence way too many thoughts are hitting my mind. My today’s thought was about imaginary conversation. Yes, I do have imaginary conversation with people that I know and also...

It’s baked, it’s extra lean ground beef, it has sesame seeds and is delicious… I baked these extra lean ground beef patties last weekend, served them with salad and pesto mayonnaise dipping (recipe coming soon). I will be mostly seen least enthusiastic about cooking during day time that too on a weekend. I will be a couch potato either watching...

Yummy quick fix dinner… This week is fading away so fast it seems, it’s already Tuesday. I had a  wonderful weekend, in deed a rewarding one. On Sunday, I volunteered for a fund raising event, the theme was Egyptian brunch buffet. We had a lot of delicious food: Egyptian foul or fava bean stew, scrambled eggs, croissants, pizzas, pita bread and hummus,...

Cauliflower haters are going to fall for this, cauliflower lovers are going to make this over and over… When I came to know that my hubby dislikes cauliflower, the first thing that came out of my mouth was “Are you kidding me?”. How can someone hate cauliflower? Aren’t they just adorable? They look so pretty and to me they resemble wedding...

Two of my staple foods: pesto and couscous… Pesto has been one of my most favorite ingredients and I dare to add it to most of the dishes I make. Pesto never fails to enhance the flavor and the taste of any dish, such a phenomenal sauce made with aromatic and healthy ingredients like basil, pine nuts and parmesan cheese. Pesto is always seen in my refrigerator...

Make it healthy, make it creamy, make it with veggies and feel good about it… It’s mid Dec and it feels more like spring, where is the snow??? What I love the most about winter is the snow, if there is no snow then what’s the point of having winter? I know majority of the people are glad that it’s not snowing including my hubby. So, it’s...
