These Quinoa Crepes are the best tasting form of Quinoa that I have had so far. Salads, Pizzas, and anything else, Quinoa crepes beat them all! Hands down, my most favorite Quinoa recipe ever! First of all guys, I want to tell you that I did not create this recipe to be a part of any health fad/food fad! I for one do not believe in them. For those of you alien to the term, it is defined as “The term used to describe the short term popularity among restaurants and consumers of an ingredient, dish, or preparation technique”.-Wikipedia.

Grilled Broccoli? Yum! Grilled Cauliflower? Delicaso! Tandoori masala? Oh yes! My dinner yesterday was a triple treat with the three coming together with a spicy cabbage  salad & homemade whole wheat tortillas (Phulkas). And, it was all super healthy, just about 200 calories per serving. Oh, did I mention that it was Deee-lectable? Because, it was indeed. So…. I am trying to eat healthy. Not for any particular reason, just for general well-being. Being the foodie that I am and with food blogging added, it is almost impossible for me to go on a crash diet or skip any meal in… Continue reading

Banana buns are made from over ripe bananas just like this Banana Walnut bread. There is something about overripe bananas and their sweet flavor that brings out the kid in you, don’t you think? These melt in the mouth soft delicacies also known as Mangalore buns or Banana Pooris make an ideal snack with tea or even a perfect pancake-like breakfast which is what made our Sunday brunch this weekend. Bananas are a menace! Is it just with me or does anybody ever happen to find the perfectly ripened bananas in a store? Bananas that are not green like the… Continue reading

A perfect oven baked potato is just what you need when you are torn between enjoying time with family and feeding them all! This holiday season, I did bake some potatoes but no, I did not make mashed potatoes.  I used the meaty soft potato scoops for one recipe and the crispy skins for another.  And, the whole thing was such a breeze requiring very little attention from my end. Making lots of food but not spending too much time in the kitchen? Now, that’s what I call a win-win situation!  All of us have heard of the saying, “Too… Continue reading

Baingan Bharta (roast and mashed eggplant) is the Indian Baba Ganoush because they are the same, well, they are almost the same. Could I please take the liberty of saying baingan bharta is a tastier baba ganoush being blamed for favoritism? It is just my Indian palette doing the talking for me Why the comparison?

Accomplished everything I had planned (apart from eating from roadside food carts and hole-in-the-wall restaurants) and came back all refreshed. Except for the 12-hr time zone difference,… Continue reading
