A healthy, power-packed breakfast full of proteins to turbo-charge the day!!! Every time I start cooking with a new ingredient I  have a tendency to get fixated on it till I can make a couple of good recipes with it. To be honest I am surprised it took me this long to find this latest obsession. It is none other than what some people consider as SUPERFOOD i.e. QUINOA. For some one like me who has started working out regularlyRead More

Zucchini Pancakes

Zucchini Pancakes

Posted on May 7, 2017

Lip-smackingly delicious Zucchini Pancakes. A perfect breakfast to start a lazy weekend!!! What do y’all do for the first meal when you have just gotten rid of a nasty stomach bug?? The easy answer is take it easy on your tummy which is exactly what I did.. Like a good kid I actually went back to eating my veggies i.e. Zucchini.. But I was damn well going to make sure that the zucchini wasn’t going to be bland in anyRead More

Kesar (Saffron) Shrikhand

Posted on April 23, 2017

A personal childhood favorite!!! Rich, finger-lickingly delicious Kesar Shrikhand!!! I am a firm believer in the fact that no matter where you go or what you do, one should always make it a point to enjoy the simple pleasures in life. Yes!! y’all heard it right.. It is the very same person saying this who loves nothing more than twisting his recipes left and right (LAUGHS!!!). Ironic.. Isn’t it.. But there comes a time when you can’t help but craveRead More

Stuffed Bell Peppers

Stuffed Bell Peppers

Posted on April 16, 2017

Bell Peppers stuffed with delicately flavored spicy rice.. The sweetness of the peppers perfectly balances the spiciness of the rice.. The inspiration to create a recipe can come from pretty much anywhere. Childhood memories, life experiences, parents can all be considered as major influences for new recipe ideas. But ever so often a recipe idea can come from a completely off the hook source. Like a coworker who is obsessed with a particular recipe for about a week (LAUGHS!!!). ItRead More

Jalapeno Fritters

Posted on April 9, 2017

Hot of the fryer Jalapeno Fritters with a Twist!!! These pint-sized goodies are stuffed with CHEESE… Very soon after coming to Birmingham I was told that it was possible to experience all the seasons of the year in the same week in this city. It might be cold one day, extremely hot the next and start raining the day after. People even joked that all 3 things could happen in one single day. It did not take me long toRead More

A fun weekend in the Georgian Mountains

A fun weekend in the Georgian Mountains.

Posted on April 2, 2017

A much needed break well-spent hiking in the mountains of North Georgia.. There are quiet a few of those times in life when you are completely burned out. All you need is a few days of quality “ME TIME” if you know what I mean. I have been at that stage for a couple of weeks now so I definitely needed to get away at least for the weekend. Also Maddy is back in India so this was going toRead More

Chickpea Curry with Shredded Chicken

Chickpea Curry with Shredded Chicken

Posted on March 26, 2017

A rich, creamy, luscious curry with slightly crunchy chickpeas and soft, tender shredded chicken. The world of food blogging opens you up to endless possibilities and innumerable food combinations. You are more open to trying the things to which you have been previously resistant. Personally I do have a few no-no’s as far as my eating habits are concerned with one being the combo of chickpeas and chicken. I was stupidly assuming that it wouldn’t work without even trying it.Read More

Crispy, delectable Tatertots. These pint-sized goodies pack a ton of flavor. The cold wave that hit the east coast seems to have finally passed and the weather has begun warming up nicely just in time for the weekend. Not only that March Madness (college basketball championships for those who don’t know) has officially begun. So its time to sit in front of the tv with a bags of chips, a bottle of soda and most importantly hot-of-the fryer crispy, delectableRead More

This is one of the biggest festivals for Indians no matter where they are. So it was no surprise that even tiny little Birmingham had a huge celebration.

Lentil Soup

Lentil Soup

Posted on February 26, 2017

A mildly spiced Lentil Soup which will please your palate and warm the cockles of your heart instantly. Its been said that when life gives you lemons you make lemonade. But what happens when life gives you lentils?? In my case I will definitely make nothing else but samosas. This time however there was a problem because I caught a bad cold and a cough. At times like these all you need is a piping hot liquid to clear outRead More
