Who  can  say  no  to  Chocolate  chip  cookies?  Mildly  sweet,  crunchy,  garnished  with  the  goodness  of  Goji  berries  and  pistachios.  The  other  bonuses,  these  are  eggless  and  gluten  free.  I  do  not  want  to  leave  anyone  behind. I  am  a  novice  baker,  hence  the  recipe  has  to  be  super  simple.  That  is  exactly  what  it

Have  you  ever  made  granola  at  home  friends?  It  really  is  so  easy,  once  you  start  it  is  hard  to  stop. Most  importantly  it  is  much  cheaper,  you  have  complete  control  over  the  ingredients.  Not a  fan  of  too  sweet,  hey  tone  it  down,  love  a  particular  fruit,  go  to  town  with  that.  You  get

I  am  expecting  a  super  busy  weekend.  It  is  the  Bengali  new  year,  and  two  birthdays  in  the  family.  Friends,  fun  and  of  course  the  biggest  draw  is  the  food.  The  birthday  boy  with  his  sweet  tooth  is  already  looking  forward  to  desserts.  I  love  making  Indian  desserts,  specially  the  ones  that  can  be  made

Spring  has  come  in  Calendar.  The  Canada  geese  are  back,  the  schools  have  “spring  break”,  too.  When  I  look outside  of  my  window,  it  is  a  different  story  altogether. Snow  for  the  whole  week  with  temperatures  of  minus  eighteen,  still.  This  doesn’t  exactly  qualify  as  spring weather,  do  you  agree? Oh  well,  when  you  cannot

I  am   really   liking   making   cookies.  Aren’t  they  just  so  versatile?  My  cookie  cutter  collection  is  growing  in  leaps  and  bounds.  Christmas,  Valentine’s  day,  Easter,  “Thank  you”,  Maple  leaf,  you  name  it  and  I  have  it  in  my  collection. Ever  since  I  saw  these  cute  Easter  cookies  in  Martha’s  website,  I  knew  I  had  to

Dosa  is  a  savoury  crepe,  that  is  delicious,  healthy  and  fairly  easy  to  make.  The  batter  made  with  rice  and  lentil  paste  needs  good  fermentation  though,  which  means  some  planning  is  needed. Isn’t  that  the  hardest?  I  mean  life  is  so  busy  within  everything  else,  where  is  the  time  for  meticulous  planning?  There  could  be

Is  there  any  better  way  to  welcome  Spring,  than  to  colour  yourself  with  the  colours  of  the  season? Just  take  a  moment  to  think.  The  long  grey  winter,  I’d  say  white  in  my  part of  the  world,  is  just  showing  signs  of  being  done  for  the  year. The  possibility  of  the  bare  feet  touching  the

An  Indian  meal  is  incomplete  without  some  sort  of  lentil  preparation.  Be  it  thick  and  spicy,  or  light  and  runny. It  may  have   vegetables  incorporated  in  it,  or  lentil  fritters.  Each  province  in  India  probably  could  boast  a  speciality  lentil  dish. The  permutation  and  combination  of  herbs  and  spices  are  so  many  that  the  same

I  just  adore  people  that  can  skate.  How  can  one  balance  oneself  on  those  blades  let  alone  swirl,   jump  and  chase  the  puck  is  something  I  haven’t  quite  wrapped  my  head  around  yet. Honestly  though  isn’t  it  beautiful?  I  am  spending  all  the  available  hours  in  front  of  the big  screen.  With  team  Canada  doing
