Homemade easy to make Sun Dried Tomatoes are the best way to preserve all the summer tomatoes. Super easy to make in the oven and you can add whatever extra flavor you like. Fresh herbs, garlic, spices or keep it a plain.
Flavor packed with warm spices, Tamatar Shorba is an Indian tomato soup that was introduced by the Mughals. It is typically prepared with only tomatoes, but I like to add one red pepper and then roast it for maximum flavor burst.
This Tomato Rosemary Lemon Focaccia bread is for your carb indulgence. It’s crispy on the outside, chewy inside and packed with robust flavor. I added cherry tomatoes, fresh rosemary and few slices of lemon rinds from my preserved lemons. Focaccia bread is a great bread to enjoy with soup on the side, slice and use as sandwich or even with some cheese and wine.
As my Dad’s retirement day was approaching, my Mom started worrying more and more. He was never the kind of man who can sit idle or relax with a book and a coffee. His to-do list never got over and he enjoyed being active, on his toes all the time, including vacations.

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…
Some days are busy and some days are lazy. While the busy days start with ginger tea and cereal poured from a box in a bowl of cold milk, a lazy day begins late with a plateful of our desired breakfast. From something egg-y to sooji halwa, from bread pakoda to roasted tomatoes with buttermilk biscuits; we prepare anything we feel like eating that morning. Weekend is a day of indulgence for us and we like to slow it down and cherish the two precious days of the week.
