Creamy Spinach Soup

There is nothing more comforting than a bowl of piping hot soup to get through the cold days. The best part about this soup is, it does not require any fancy ingredients and you can double or triple the quantity by adding milk or water, as per your choice and preference. Even though this recipe has…

Homemade Funfetti cupcakes

I am a serious cake lover and adore everything and anything that has to do with funfetti, sprinkles , cake batter and cookie dough!

Warm Lemon Honey Drink

I have a recurring cold! Achooo!! Credit goes to the cold weather that is here to stay for quite some time. Whenever I get cold I remember the list of things I need to take care of :  Vitamin C, zinc supplements , drink lots of water and most important to keep WARM! Apart from…

Rice and Chicken

Do you have your shopping list ready for the Holiday Season? I am still drawing inspiration online and from the local mall. I want something that is simple, thoughtful and creative.

Do you always need something to munch on while watching movies? I prefer cozying up on the couch in our living room as opposed to watching movies in theater. It gives the flexibility of munching the above pictured  banana dumplings instead of over buttered popcorn and stale nachos. I have realized that eating crunchy  food in…

Broccoli Fritters

I have a food theory. Any vegetable that can be shredded, or finely chopped, can be tucked into a savory batter with cheese and lightly fried to perfection. “Broccoli fritters” is one such dish that comes together beautifully with five simple ingredients. I was amazed by the amount of broccoli I could fit in! I used an entire…

Baked Salmon with Pesto and Roasted Vegetables

Baked Salmon with pesto and roasted vegetables is a healthy dish made with simple ingredients and is a perfect weekday night meal. But before we dive into the recipe and method I would like to say that this is my first time cooking this fish and there were a series of questions that went through my mind…

Coconut Pancakes

Having said that, I added one more feather in my (pancake) cap and this time it involves coconut. In my quest to develop a perfect recipe for fluffier coconut pancakes I…
