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

Remember  those  eggless  sugar  cookies  I  baked  for  my  Christmas  cookie  exchange  at  work?  I  did  promise  the  recipe  to  you  all.  How  did  these  months  couple  months  pass  by  so  fast? A  promise  is  a  promise.  I  know  it  is  a  little  early  for  Christmas  this  year,  but  hey  we  have  Valentine’s  day  round

Good  news  on  the  weather  front.  We  have  warmed  up  to  a  balmy  minus   twenty  six  celsius  today.  Remember  the  saying  ”  every  little  bit  helps?” Well  on   the  other  hand,  tea  is  consumed  by  pot  fulls  with  a  side  of  yummy  and  crunchy  snacks.  Tweak  the recipe   if  you  want.  Spice  it  up   or

It  has  been  snowing  steady  for  the  past  whole  week.  The  roads,  the  driveway,  the  branches  of  the  trees  are  full  of  the  white  stuff.   If  that  is  not  enough  the   weatherman  is  calling  for  30   more  centi  meters  tonight.  Slippery  roads,  poor  visibility,  shovelling  snow  off  of  the  driveway,  all  we  are  saying  now
