This roasted garlic mushroom is an easy, no fuss delicious dish that pairs best with some rustic bread. It’s a toss-everything-together and forget about it for the next 20 minutes kind of a meal. If you like garlic and mushroom, you will absolutely love this and probably make it on repeat. All it needs is 5 Key ingredients!
Zucchini Fritters are one of the quickest snacks to bring together. Few everyday ingredients mixed together with grated zucchini and then pan fried until it’s golden crispy outside. Enjoy it as snack or as a meal with some salad on the side.
The cake, a book and some hot tea; joy in simple pleasures! I grew up eating a lot of home-baked vanilla flavored cake with no frosting. We didn't have a cookie jar to dig in after school but we had a cake box that would hardly be empty. Ma didn't need any special occasion, she just needed some free time in hand and our lunch box would definitely have a piece of cake in it.
My favorite season is finally here with longer daylight, beautiful sunshine and pretty flowers! Now, all I ask from the weatherman is not to predict anymore frequent showers, storm or anything that takes away the Spring. Last week was pretty dull and boring with non-stop rain and cold winds, but what kept me excited was seeing Arvind finalizing the new design for blog. In between all the crazy workload, my sweetheart somehow managed to find time for planning, writing, fixing bugs and creating this new look. I feel SO proud and yes, I know :) I am one lucky girl!
It's amazing how I like to challenge myself in the kitchen these days. It's like a fun workout for me. Sometime the exercises ends in a fabulous result which makes my day a whole lot brighter and sometime, there are those bad times when I cry...almost like a kid! The unsuccessful experiment creates a disaster and mess in the kitchen that makes me really mad! But thankfully it makes me more curious and stubborn. Call it attitude if you may, but it helps me to finally nail the dish!
After participating in the last month's DHSPC, I was looking forward to see what challenge would Simon get for us this month. The idea of recreating someone's work is not easy specially when that person is best at what they do. It is intimidating and definitely challenging but there is always a lot of learning involved in the process.
Few weeks back, I tried making truffles and failed miserably. I hear people saying it's easy, probably the best dessert you can make in advance and "wow" your friends at the party. Well, for some reason it's not working in my kitchen.. yet! When my very close friend Grishma told me she was making truffles for me, you can only imagine my happiness. And my excitement doubled when I saw the flavor combination that she used to make these truffles. I just can't wait to try it in my kitchen. Now, I might be able to make truffles successfully.
No one needs a special day to celebrate love but when there is a day dedicated for love, why not enjoy it! We never go big on Valentine's Day but it's a special day in our calendar and we like to celebrate it in our own little way. Eating out is always an option but the thought of waiting for a seat and sitting in a crowded restaurant somehow kills the celebration mood for us. We like it quiet, cozy and what's a better place for that than your own home.
These past few weeks have been really crazy. I missed my camera, missed visiting my favorite blogs and there is so much to catch up. In between all the packing and unpacking, I was hardly getting any time to breathe. Yes, we moved to a new apt and we are still settling down. Today, I found some time in hand to share one of our all-time favorite sauce for pasta, favorite spread for bread and favorite dip for the chips - Pesto!
