Easy Indian Cooking – Peas Masala

When you have to cook every day, you tend to find short cuts to make the recipe flavorful, yet simple and less time- consuming. I am no different. When I truly cannot figure out what to cook for dinner I resort to some old-fashioned recipes from the kitchens of my mother and grandmothers. You get […]

Chocolate Tart with Banana & Pomegranate

I first read about the Gluten Fee Ratio Rally on Jenn Cuisine, and found it just amazing how different ingredients are combined with respect to each other and how it was all about ‘ratios’ and their importance to recreate a gluten-free version of some of the popular baked goodies. In August 2012, when I hosted […]

Vegan, Gluten Free, Soy Free – Chocolate & Nut Butter Fudge (no bake)

I love chocolate fudge and what better for my “Chocolate” theme for the first 5 posts (Out of the 20) of “Vegan Month of Food”. I recently tried this recipe and have made this a couple of times after then for some friends. Super easy, super simple and truly delicious. The best part, you don’t […]

Chocolate Brownies with Walnuts (Vegan & Gluten Free!)

I was quite curious when a friend treated me to some gluten free vegan brownies. I wasn’t sure if it was appropriate to question and re-confirm it they were truly vegan and…..strictly gluten free? What I was eating was too good to be vegan and gluten free. At least, that’s what my brain kept telling […]

Assorted Macarons

More than just treats these are like a bite sized symphony (of flavors) in your mouth. From the original site: Growing up, a ‘macaroon’ was either a chunk of a cookie loaded with coconut or a tough sugary meringue cookie with bits of cashew nuts and almonds. Either ways it was always a ‘cookie’.Well, all […]

Lemon Cream and Saffron Petits Fours

A little lemony treat with a hint of saffron. From the original site: For the longest time a fruit tart was the ‘only’ tart I ever knew. It took me quite a while to understand what a tart was and more so the difference between a pie and a tart. I am not an ardent […]

Quinoa Chickpea Pilaf

I’d always wanted to try a recipe using Quinoa, but wasn’t quite sure where to begin. Honestly, it took me a while to even get the pronunciation right. I never tasted or used Quinoa previously but had always read so much about how quick and easy it is to cook. I knew I wanted to […]

Strawberry Yogurt Parfait.jpg
Strawberry Yogurt Parfait

I enjoy adding yogurt into everything I cook. So, in our household its a constant on the list of ‘staples’ on the weekly grocery list. With so many different kinds and brands available its tough at times to select ‘a’ specific kind. I use store bought and make it at home, when I can. Of […]
