“Patience is bitter, but its fruit is sweet.” — Aristotle I would be lying if I say that this recipe is so easy to make with few steps. Rather they take three days to make and need loads of patience and butter. Those who faint at the sight of butter need to look elsewhere as there is no low-fat croissants recipe anywhere and if you happen to find then it must be something else all Want to know more about this recipe?
Whenever we go to the mall I tend to avoid the Cinnabon stall, not because they aren’t good but because I can’t control my temptations. But the rules of temptations and restraint doesn’t apply to my kids. They happily eat right in front of me while I try not to drool and turn my focus on anything other than them. To make things hard my kids ask if I want some by sticking it right Want to know more about this recipe?
I’m amazed at my son’s manipulative powers. He loves to be the center of attention like any 6 year old and gets immense happiness if he can make his sister look bad. As we were having our lunch my son remembered to question me if I had my breakfast and I was carried away by his simple gesture and the lovely thought that he cared for me. Anyone could spot his beaming triumphant look that Want to know more about this recipe?
I always have a bag of frozen berries in my freezer as I use them often for smoothies. I’ve long wanted to try compote (fruits cooked in syrup) but I had no idea of using the compote other than in ice cream. When I saw this recipe(taken from here) of using the thickened compote in berry turnovers, it reminded me of Summer. I love berries not just for its super sweet taste but its versatility Want to know more about this recipe?
My husband challenged me to make palkova/theratipal (kova) for his birthday, assuming that I’ll need to stand in front of stove stirring milk for around 2 to 3 hours. Coincidently that day had been the most busy day for me. Pressed for time, I decided to make the shortcut microwave method (I didn’t take step by step picture while making palkova as I was not intending to post it, I’ll update this post with step Want to know more about this recipe?
When I often open the fridge one thing or the other slides out and fall right on my feet. Grrrrrrrrrrrrr…clutching my feet I try to scold the poor thing that fell on my feet, like a child. With my daughter’s recent frozen cookie dough fundraising sale (courtesy, her school), I have few more boxes left in my freezer that’s occupying my already dumped precious freezer space. I did try to coax my dear hubby to Want to know more about this recipe?
My kids wanted me to make ice cream for them when I announced that I’ve taken Kids Delight as my theme this week. The thought of seeing them eat ice cream with the cream dripping from their hands and with white/brown big mushes around their mouth is just hilarious. Since I didn’t have an ice cream maker I thought of filling a pastry shell with whipped vanilla cream and top it with fruits. I didn’t Want to know more about this recipe?
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?
Today is my Day 3, Blogging Marathon#14. I had lot of ideas jotted down when I signed up for the “traditional recipes with a twist” theme. This is one of the ideas and the experiment did not turn out as I expected in the shape but it surpassed my expectations in the taste. The main idea of this recipe was to make modakams (kozhukattai) that we make on Ganesh Chathurthi in puff pastry instead of Want to know more about this recipe?
This is one of the ancient recipes that I tried to bake when I came to US. In India, where I grew up I’ve never baked nor was there any oven at those times. So we used to eat this puff from our local Iyengar Bakery and snack on it at any given chance. So I tried my best to recreate the taste. Once I got good at making it, I baked these veggie puffs Want to know more about this recipe?
