Eggless Chocolate Cornet

I love baking, and I love to experiment. When I saw the Baking Eggless group by Gayathri Kumar, I jumped at the opportunity for creating eggless recipes. This month’s challenge was to recreate Chocolate Cornets without eggs. I didn’t use the video reference provided, I used this video for making the cornet and an eggless chocolate pudding recipe along with my personalization for the filling. The end result was awesome and my kids were so Want to know more about this recipe?

Asparagus & Zucchini Lemon Orzo

Two weeks back, my husband came home raving about the lemon salad he had at his work. I was so curious and was asking him to describe the salad. He couldn’t recollect the name of the salad (oh! that would have made it easier for me). He likes to create suspense and confusion and finally I’ll be running around the house in wits end, unclear about the dish and the need to know what it Want to know more about this recipe?

Pineapple Quinoa Kesari

After I started my blog, my family was so excited and they encouraged me with ideas and recipes for the blog. I’m not surprised by their enthusiasm, appreciation, and wishes for my entry in to the blogging world and I’m very thankful to be surrounded by so many well wishers. What surprises me most is getting this recipe idea from my father-in-law. From the time I got married I haven’t seen him cook, but they Want to know more about this recipe?

Cracked Wheat Thins

I guess choosing challenging themes make me think and try new recipes out of my comfort zone. When I chose my first week’s theme (vegetarian recipes with a twist), it was quite hard to come up with unique recipes and I deliberately chose that to challenge myself and had a blast creating some new recipes. I assumed that cooking for this week’s theme (whole grain dishes) would be very easy and natural as I mostly Want to know more about this recipe?

Brown Rice Flour Rava Dosa

Today for some reason I preferred a simple yet tasty meal and without any doubt dosa was the answer to it.

Oats Pakora Kadhi

I wanted to try something new with oats for my Day 3, Blogging Marathon’s “Whole grain dishes” theme. As its so hard for me to just follow a recipe without adding a personal spin to it, I was searching for many oats recipes where I can personalize, and ended up with nothing interesting to make. I wondered if there were recipes for oats pakora kadhi. After seeing there weren’t such a recipe I decided to Want to know more about this recipe?

Home-made Honey Wheat Bread Pizza

I’ve been wanting to bake a loaf for a very long time. The thought of having to wait for the yeast to ferment with the flour mixture for two rises used to make me put that thought away. I’m little impatient that way, I expect quick results whether its my weight loss goal, what to wear for a party or what to cook for lunch/dinner. The last two questions would make my husband pretend as Want to know more about this recipe?

Penne Pasta with Spinach & Lentil creamy sauce

I was brain storming on ideas of what to do for my last post for this theme. My daughter specifically wanted pasta for dinner. I didn’t want to do the usual pasta with marinara sauce and vegetables, nor was I inclined to make it cheesy. But the thought of cheese took me to a dish that I previously had at a restaurant. The pasta was mixed with spinach creamy white sauce (loaded with cheese of Want to know more about this recipe?
