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…

Crispy Karela (Bitter Gourd) Stir Fry

We are food bloggers but we eat normal everyday food too! You wonder why I started this post with such an odd comment? No. Not because we’re cooking bitter gourd today.  Let me tell you why. I think there is this expectation the world has from us food bloggers that we cook and eat exotic food every single meal of our life. I am not sure if many of my blogger friends hear this comment…

Whole Wheat Brownies and a Story

Oh.. I did see some of you roll your eyes already! Yes, we’re back. Again. We periodically disappear. You think- we’re back again with some more lame excuses to explain our unannounced absence? Well, to be honest, I have been writing this post for a really long time… err.. in my head! I have been telling myself every day that today will be the day when thoughts are put in words and published. And today,…

Spicy Peanut Chaat

Spicy Peanut Chaat- a childhood snack recreated! I remember having some version of this as a kid and remember loving it too. Of late, I have been looking for healthy ways of dealing with my post-lunch/ pre-dinner hunger pangs. So one evening, to stop myself from indulging in the not-so-good-for-me snacks I decided I am going to go nuts about peanuts! Bad one, yeah?

Mini Chocolate Tarts

Almost every food blogger has a little thanksgiving story or a post or a recipe on their blog. We have ours too and it has nothing to do with pumpkin!! Atleast not yet. I promise, there will be a pumpkin related post too…soon.  As always, much late. But that’s ok. We do things at our own pace around here. So would you believe if I told you we made these chocolate filled beauties? Well, we…

Strawberry Cake

Some of you must remember these beauties from our Instagram feed from a few weeks months ago. Opps.. It’s been there way too long without a recipe especially if I have already made it more than once. But then it’s never too late for fresh strawberry cakes, is it now? This is no fancy schmancy cake- just a classic slightly adapted Martha Stewart vanilla cake topped with tart berries and baked to a light golden…

Vegetarian Shami (Bengal Gram) Kebabs

Vegetarian Shami Kebabs or Kaale Chane ki Tikki…I could give this as many names as I wish but these kebabs would taste absolutely heavenly either ways! Shami Kebabs are a very popular variety of kebabs not only in Indian cuisine but also other south Asian countries. Although, traditionally these are made with minced meat, there are quite a few meat and non-meat versions that exist. We made ours using Bengal gram or kale chane as…

Coconut Ladoos

We know… this is a much belated Diwali post..in fact a much belated blog post itself but we’re always in for coconut ladoos, aren’t we now? Just when I was ready to put up the Coconut Ladoos on the blog right before Diwali last month after a long break, I realized that the blog itself wasn’t too pleased with our absence. Yeah, sometimes technology likes to throw tantrums back at you too. Who knew! So,…

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…
