Cinnamon Swirl Pancake Muffins

“Tomorrow’s Pancake Friday, despite the fact that it’s Monday.” –Jarod Kintz That’s a true fact in our house. Pancakes are most welcome on any day and in any form or shape. Our weekends usually start out with lazy pillow fights and family tickles so when my kids rush me to the kitchen with demands on making continental breakfast within a short period of time I tend to make it semi-homemade to assuage their demand without Want to know more about this recipe?

Potato Vegetable Omlet

I’m not a morning person, sometimes I wonder if I’m even an afternoon person! So, I’m not responsible for things that come out of my mouth right after you wake me up. Weekdays are always a whirlwind running around to push my kids (my husband included) out of the house but weekends are a different story. Somehow, my body refuses to acknowledge that I can get up early and many times we end up lazing Want to know more about this recipe?

“Sometimes you will never know the true value of a moment until it becomes a memory.”–(unknown) I have one such memory from my childhood. My mom used to travel about 17km each way to work and so were my brother and me. On many days my mom used to surprise us with treats from a local bakery near her work and we used to fight for the Japanese cake, I can really imagine the taste Want to know more about this recipe?

Coconut Macaroons

Macaroons are made either with ground almond or with coconut. They are often in circular shape and can be easily confused with the French confection ‘Macaron’. Even though the ingredients in both ‘Macaroons’ and ‘Macaron’ are very similar they are widely different from one another and each stand with its head held high providing a wonderful dessert with its own sweetness and taste. The name ‘Macaroons’ comes from Italian maccarone or maccherone meaning “paste” referring Want to know more about this recipe?

Chelsea Buns

Chelsea buns and Cinnamon rolls are very similar with slight variations to one another. Chelsea bun was first created in 18th century in a Bun House in Chelsea (hence the name) and Cinnamon rolls (aka honey buns) was first created around mid 1900s. I’m not sure if Cinnamon rolls simply evolved from Chelsea buns but I would definitely think that Chelsea buns are a much tamer version of Cinnamon rolls. The subtle difference between the Want to know more about this recipe?

Pumpkin Bread

This is the first time I was tempted to make pumpkin bread. When I was new to baking I’ve tried going eggless by substituting fruit purees and other egg substitutes to the original recipe. Some have been success and some were utter failure with a more dense cake or quick bread. The experience has somewhat put me of from baking with fruit purees as such— Once bitten, twice shy! However every fall when I see Want to know more about this recipe?

Paneer Biryani

We have all heard the quote, “Simplicity is a sign of perfection”. I’m not a very complex person and I love when things connect to me in base level. I extrapolate many of my beliefs in cooking too. As much as I love to challenge myself in cooking/baking, labor intensive dishes I also love to kick back and relax myself by enjoying a simple meal. There is nothing more comforting to make one pot meals Want to know more about this recipe?

Soya Chunks Biryani

I truly believe in the adage –“Your body is a temple, but only if you treat it as one.” ~Astrid Alauda. I’ve always struggled with my weight from my early teens. I’ve tried diets upon diets just to see if there is a magic cure that’ll transform me into a preconceived body with minimal to no effort. Once I even asked my doctor why do I find it so hard to lose weight and his Want to know more about this recipe?
