Healthy Berrylicious Whole Wheat Crepes with a Greek Yogurt Filling

Yesterday, in 2007 the final episode of Gilmore Girls was aired. It was only 7 years later that I started watching what is now my favorite TV show ever! EVER. Period (psstt..judge me all you want). So, very recently I completed watching all 7 seasons and since then I am having withdrawal symptoms. The Mr. doesn’t understand this but to my utmost delight he took me to Stars Hollow (for those who don’t know, Stars…

Homemade Granola

On one cold winter morning in the hills somewhere in Ohio in a beautiful little inn, we had the best granola ever (along with the best ever breakfast muffins). Both N & I love our granola flaky and for lack of a better word not chunky. This granola was perfect. The chef would obviously not tell us the recipe and so a year later we went back to the same inn to eat the same…

Papaya Smoothie

I am not sure about you, but I associate smoothies with summer. Blending cold fruits into a smoothie in the winters is not something I think I will be able to do. I can try but don’t think it’ll work. In the cold, I want something to keep me warm- physically and psychologically. 🙂 So with the end of summer upon us, I am whipping up the last set of these nutrition packed smoothies and…

Whole Wheat Flour & Olive Oil Walnut Spice Loaf Cake

Errr..Long name, eh? I just couldn’t contain my excitement on this one. I have been trying to get myself to use whole wheat flour and olive oil to bake a cake for quite a while now. I just wasn’t sure about the texture, taste & flavor. After seeing quite a few cake and bread recipes using whole wheat flour and olive oil from the lovely ladies Sonal from Simply Vegetarian777, Apsara from Eating Well Diary…

Garlic Rosemary Madeleines

So my madeleine pan has been staring at my face since the day I got it. What actually got me to buy this specialty pan (which I usually am not a fan of) was my “need” to have madeleines.  The only other time the pan was used, it was to make shortcakes..these ones, for those who haven’t already seen them. The pan has now finally been put to use for what I’d like to think…

Home-made Italian Bread

N loves bread- buying, eating and baking, one of the very few things he likes to bake (so much for going on a low-carb diet). If I ever lose him in the grocery store I know where to find him- he’s that predictable with bread. This Friday, N decided he wanted to make stretch bread. He had attempted a few before as well that didn’t quite make it on the blog ‘coz they were not…

Meatless Monday: Chole-Puri- A Spicy Indian Chickpea Curry served with fried Indian flatbread

We do crave our good old Indian comfort food quite often. Chole (Chickpea Curry)-Puri (fried Indian flatbread) is one such comfort food that makes us extremely happy. 🙂 Obviously eating out at an Indian restaurant is a ready option but we chose to stay at home and make it ourselves. If you are using uncooked chickpeas this does require a bit of planning since the chickpeas have to be soaked in water overnight and only…

Pretzel Bagels

The best Pretzels we’ve had here are at Auntie Anne’s- an American chain of pretzel bakeries. Their pretzels are so fresh and tempting that you cannot resist them if you cross one of their bakeries. I have almost never seen any of their bakeries without a long queue. Anyway, so now that you know we like pretzels you should know we (actually N more than me) like bagels too. So we decided to attempt a…

Perfect Orange Pancake Breakfast

With oranges all around these days, we take inspiration and so we made Orange Pancakes, actually orange pancake medallions. Nothing orangey has tasted orangey enough without orange zest and that is what we added to our basic pancake recipe. 🙂 This recipe here is a pancake recipe from scratch and with basic ingredients that most of us almost always have- all-purpose flour, milk, egg, butter, baking powder, vanilla extract & orange zest! It does guarantee…
