The  word   ‘ Waffles’  conjures  a  picture  of  a  plate  piled  high  with  these  beauties  ,  topped  with  cream,  some  berries  and  honey  dripping  down  the  corners.  Breakfast  is  served.  All  is  well  unless  there  are  family  members  or  friends  that  have  dietary  restrictions. That  is  when  the  idea  of  savoury  variety  comes  handy.

Condiments,  dips  and  chutneys  are   like  the  supporting  actors  or  actresses.  On  their  own  they  are   plain,  but  they  prop   up the  main  actors  and  together  elevate  them  to  a  new  level  or  in  this  case  the  dish.   Sweet,  hot,  or  nutty,   the  choices  are  many.   Pair  it  with

There  is  no  denying  that  in  today’s  busy  world  smoothies  have  become  an  ideal  snack  or  meal-on-the-go.  With  the  daily  time-crunch  we  need  more food  that  is  nutritious,  easy  to  carry,  faster  to  inhale   consume.  Smoothies  are  here  to  stay.

If  you  are  like  me,  brought  up  in  a  no  snow  place,  it  doesn’t  come  easy.  I  always  prefer  the  spot  by  the  window  of  a  warm  room  to  gaze
