It  is  almost  a  Zucchini  exchange  here  friends.  I  cooked  my  share  of  curries,  included  them  in  salads.  When  the  Zucchinis  still  kept  coming  from  friends  and  coworkers,  I  had  to  look  for  new  ways  with  Zucchinis. I  found  a  simple  gluten  free  tart  crust  recipe  here.  I  modified  it  a  bit  by  switching  the

August  is  such  a  bittersweet  month.  All  the  beautiful  fruits  are  ready  to  be  enjoyed,  the  veggies  are  ready  to  harvest,  children  are  still  on  summer  holidays,  days  are  long…. It  is  also  a  time  when  the  leaves  start  to  change  colour.  The  single  digit  temperatures  reminding  us  of  times  to  come. Coming  back  to

Oh,  you  have  no  idea  how  excited  I  am.   Linzer  cookies  and  I  go  a  long,  long  way.  It  feels  like  yesterday  though.  ‘Will  you  lick  the  jam  first  or  bite  into  it?’  Us  sisters  as  young  girls,  carefree,  innocent,  bubbly  gathered  around  this  beautiful  biscuit  box  with  cherub  faces  painted  on  the  outside

Picnics  and  popsicles  can’t  stay   far apart.  With  a  short  summer  as  is  in  the  prairies,  picnics  and  barbecues  are  quite  common. Badam  Doodh  or  milk  with  nuts  and   spices  are  quite  common  in  India,  both  as  a  hot  beverage  as  well  as  cold.  Flavoured  with  saffron,  cardamom,  rose  petals,  textured   with

Prickly  pear  smoothie?  I  mean  weren’t  anything  else  available  or  was  I  stuck  in  the  hinterland  of  Arizona?  Nope,  Neither. I  like  trying  out  new  fruits,  unknown  vegetables  in  the  grocery  store.  These  curious  fruits  with  bright  spiny  exterior  caught  my  attention  for  a  while.  It  was  only  after  I  watched  several  you  tube  videos

I  am  still  on  aquafaba  high.  Remember  those  Meringues  that  I  used  for  the  bird’s  nest  from  a  couple  posts  back?  I  wanted  to  try  macarons  this  time.  Their  pastel  colour,  innumerable  flavours  and  of  course  the  store  Laduree  in  the  city  of  lights  always  drew  me  to  these  delicate  beauties. Now  if  there  can

Remember  the  saying  ” Don’t  judge  a  book  by  its  cover?”  It  can’t  be  more  true  than  in  case  of  Chia  seeds.  Who  knew  that  these  innocuous  looking  seeds   were  a  powerhouse  of  nutrients ?  No  wonder  they  are  being  called   “Superfood”. Native  to  Mexico  and  Guatemala,  these  seeds  are  from  the  plant

Internet  is  full  of  new  ideas.  Sitting  in  the  comfort  of  our  home,  the  whole  world  opens  up  in  front  of  our  eyes. Aquafaba  has  been  popping  up  for  sometime  now.  The  Chatelaine  magazine  had  a  beautiful  front  cover  on  ‘Meringue  kisses’,  last  year.  I  had  my  eyes  on  them  and  wanted  to  give  them

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. The  flavour  permutations  and  combinations  are  endless:   fruit,  nuts  or  nut  butter,  yoghurt  or
