The rain has finally stopped. The whole of last week and the weekend it rained and rained. When it wasn’t raining, it was threatening to rain any second. The best thing to do on these rainy days is to make the inside life as comfortable as possible. Have a table filled with good food, open a bottle of Wine or two and call a few friends over to share. Isn’t that really an idyllic life? Wine, Food and Friends. I made us a few dishes to last for the friends coming and going. One of them was this super easy Roasted Cauliflower. The recipe is super easy with some Cumin, Coriander, Ginger and Bay Leaf. I love the simplicity of this recipe and the roasting aroma coming from the oven fills the kitchen. The best kind of rainy day if you ask me.

I wanted to make something for those mid afternoon hunger pangs and after school snacks that was nutritious and not overly sweet. These Almond bites pass both the tests. Not only that but they are also very easy to make.

We had Baked French Toast (find recipe here), … Continue reading Our Easter morning and recipe for Green peas and Spinach Fritters

I quickly read through it, filing away the recipe in my mind but not really registering about the cookbook name. It turned out really well. This is a great alternative to our … Continue reading Thai Corn Fritters
As promised, i have this super duper easy Roasted Brussels Sprouts recipe for you. When I was researching I found an excellent reason to be eating more of this wonderful vegetable that comes from a family of cabbage. It contains Sulforaphane, a phytochemical under research for its potential anticancer properties. Brussels Sprouts can be roasted or boiled but boiling reduces the amount of Sulforaphane. Today’s blog is not only … Continue reading Roasted Brussels Sprouts
