Portobello Mushroom Sliders

On some days, I am just very lazy to post. Most days of last week were lazy which explains our absence. Also, last week we just preferred to cook & eat and skip the “click” step of our usual routine. It is so exhausting at times, especially for us “wannabe good food photographers” who try to click a decent picture or two with the so-called right props et al. I must indulge in some self-praising…

Garlic Mushroom Clear Soup

This soup was originally scheduled to make it to Soups with SS. However, it didn’t and now we’re too late. Hopefully, we’re able to make it to Sonal & Shruti’s next event. For now, we’ll pretend we attended the soup party. 🙂 We love soups and clear soups even more. The reason why soups haven’t made an entry on our blog yet is because we fail..fail miserably to capture soups in way that make them…

Black Pepper & Oregano English Muffin Loaf

English Muffins have been on our minds for a few days now but our current “trying to be on a low carb diet” phase was preventing us from baking it. Thankfully, Angie and Catherine decided it’s time to put us all to test and created this herb & yeast challenge. We learnt a thing or two  or three or maybe lots about working with yeast during the course of coming up with ideas to take…

Tuscan Tomato and Bread Salad

When we don’t know what to cook we turn to Jamie Oliver’s recipes. His 30 minute meals always has some great ideas that we are able to use with the ingredients we have at hand. This Tuscan Tomato and Bread Salad is also one of his creations that we’ve tweaked with what we had in our refrigerator and pantry. And yes- we had a lot of tomatoes in different varieties for some strange reason. Strange…

Peanuty Spaqoodles: Spaghetti Squash Noodles with a spicy peanut sauce

Isn’t the name for this dish fun- Peanuty Spaqoodles, I could say it all day long! 🙂 Such a healthy and a crunchy alternative to pasta that you are going to love it with the peanut sauce.

We try to eat fresh and healthy on the weekdays and leave the…

Avocado, Beet and Orange Salad with Greek dressing

Since we got back from Charleston we have been detoxifying ourselves. We usually eat in moderation but then we go to a food paradise like Charleston we sort of go overboard. We’ve been having fruit smoothies, soups, greens and the likes. I have to admit that the concept of salads as meals never appealed to me before- probably because I wasn’t having the right ones. But then Nikhil introduced me to such wonderful salads and…

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…

Grilled Chicken and Mixed Green Salad with a Garlic Balsamic Vinaigrette

Virtually any salad is a quick and easy way to make a meal. There is also very little that you can do to ruin a salad. So we (read Nikhil) have been trying to eat healthy and every now and then try and sneak (not so much) in a salad for dinner. We have also been meaning to post a salad recipe for quite sometime now but the salads never made it to the camera-…

Palak ka Shorba (Spinach Soup)

“I’m strong to the finish, ’cause I eats me Spinach, I’m Popeye the sailor man! (toot, toot)” – Popeye Most of us remember that- don’t we? Spinach always reminds me of Popeye and yes that’s not too relevant but anyway. 🙂  So haven’t most of us made resolutions to eat healthy this year knowing very well that they may not last long enough? So while they do last here is a healthy, hearty and delish…
