Taco Naan Pizza

I’m not trying to squeeze three recipes in one, it’s just one recipe.

My kids wanted taco and I didn’t want to feed them processed wraps for a meal. I saw the idea of taco pizza when I was browsing and extrapolated the same idea to the naan Want to know more about this recipe?

Mo-Cho-Co-Ba (Mocha Chocolate Coconut Banana) Muffins

I don’t like guessing games. Period. My daughter constantly engages me in her guessing games and I just suck at it. Today’s game was for me to guess the picture she drew for her science homework. Oh boy, I didn’t know I could guess so many animals and she was so pissed at each of the wrong guesses that I ended up with a swollen arm (one hit for each wrong one!!!). I think its Want to know more about this recipe?

Chocolate Filled Short bread Cookies

As everyone knows, Short bread cookies aka Christmas cookies is just a mix of butter, flour, and powdered sugar. When it comes to cooking treats for kids I always find simple yet delicious ones sell more than elaborate, decorative kinds. I usually don’t go overboard especially when my kids are aware that I’m baking a treat for them. Their impatience or constant babbling is not my ideal working environment. However simple these cookies are to Want to know more about this recipe?

Pasta with Veggie Sauce

I make pastas very often and I’m always on the look out for making it with as much variation as possible. I’ve tried sauteeing vegetables and then toss them with marinara sauce. I’ve tried grilling vegetables in the oven to get that charred taste and then tossing them with olive oil and cheese. I’ve tried baking them with cheese. This recipe was something my son loved it at my friend Anu’s house. She was trying Want to know more about this recipe?

Broccoli & Edamame Soup

My little one loves to eat anything with a soft texture. I call him a grandpa as he likes to eat foods that needs little to no chewing. The modern era has made him a lazy boy who just wants to do minimum effort while eating his food. He likes to gobble them up (that’s his explanation) and be done with the constant nagging of being told to eat. Rice has to be cooked mushy Want to know more about this recipe?

Baked Garlic Fries

From thinly cut, thickly cut, crinkly cut to curly kinds, fries do take up many form but are basically potatoes cut in desired shapes and deep fried to crisp. Now do they have to be deep fried to be crispy? I guess not, they can be baked and be as tasty if not better than fried ones. I topped these fries with garlic and Parmesan cheese and I couldn’t stop myself or my kids from Want to know more about this recipe?

Monkey bread Mini Muffins

With my head pounding from my day’s running around in hot sweltering sun I sat down in front of my computer to write today’s post. My brain which was already shouting with aches refused to splatter words. As I was staring at the blank screen on how to write, my daughter came to my rescue by asking if I needed any help. I asked her for ideas on how to start this post and she Want to know more about this recipe?

Bagel Cups

My little one gets attached to one type of food and bores everyone at home with the same food for weeks. He is so stubborn that he would refuse to eat anything else until the fever of one food spreads to another. This time it was bagel and cream cheese that was on for weeks and then transformed to pizza. I didn’t know what to do with the leftover bagels that were sitting in my Want to know more about this recipe?
