Spinach Corn Crepe With Zaatar Feta Sauce

Folded in quarters and drizzled with the teeniest amount of chocolate sauce, it was served in a paper plate. I nibbled for a while and threw the rest. That was my first experience of sampling crepe. It was in a food court and it was horrible! Few years later, we took a trip to Bangkok. During our stay there, we used to visit one particular shopping mall quite often. The foot court in that mall had a crepe stall that didn’t fascinate me much but it sure did excite Arvind.

With Valentine’s Day around the corner, I should be sharing a chocolate pleasure. Instead, I am going to ask you to try this salad. We never really go grand on celebrating Valentine’s Day. We fancy a casual dinner at home in our pajamas instead of waiting for a table in crowded restaurants. And this salad could be a great start. Snuggling in the couch, eating with bare hands.

Spicy Shrimp Corn Chowder

There are brown boxes everywhere, some packed, some partially packed and several others resting next to it, soon to be used. It's not a pretty scene out here. It is a mess. For someone who likes things kept in place, neatly arranged and clean (I don’t have OCD, I promise), it’s painful to watch the chaos. In less than a week, we shift to another apartment. It is something I am looking forward to for several reasons. It’s not too far from where we currently live but we still need to haul a moving truck, which means there is a…

Grilled Salmon With Corn And Heirloom Tomato Salad

Few weeks back, I joined the madness and shared my first instavideo after a long photo shoot. Once done, we sat for lunch and gobbled up what we prepared together (yes, it was one of those weekends). After a while, I checked my instafeed and turns out the video reached close to 700+ likes in like an hour (woot!) and a comment that said I reached the popular page. Wow, that’s something! Of course, I was excited and thrilled but what followed after that was horrible. There were a series of nasty, rude and mean comments. I just don’t understand…

Spicy Corn Fritters

I was prepping for dinner when I got distracted towards the television. Brian Boitan was sharing his love for a special corn fritter that he ate at E&O Asian Kitchen in San Francisco. Who doesn’t like deep-fried snacks and anyways, SF is not far from my place. But then again, I was not sure I could wait long enough for a trip! Quickly I switched off the stove and started making notes of whatever information I could gather while observing the chef. She made it sound so easy but even after multiple attempts, it didn't come out half as close to…

Scallops with Corn and Pepper Sauce

I am a seafood lover. Give me fish in any form.. grill, baked, steamed or fried.. I will always enjoy it. As a kid, I didn't eat any shell fish, thought it was very unappetizing!  My mom always prefer fresh water fish but this time when I visit them, I will make them try some scallops for sure, if not any other shell fish. Last weekend, we saw these gorgeous scallops in our local market, they were shinning white. There was no way I could have ignored it and immediately bought a pound. I had no clue what I was making with it…
