Mother's Day is coming around in 2 weeks, and I'm sure everyone is planning a special Brunch for their beloved moms! Well, my little one wants to make something special for me too, so she asked me to choose one of the best pancake recipes and tell her how to make them, so that she can do it "all by herself, maybe with a little help from Daddy", and make the Best Pancakes Ever for her Mamma!!!

It’s worth thinking about some of the best foods to pair with a wine tasting event; this applies whether or not you’re putting on a large party, or just having a few friends over. In general, it’s important not to let food overwhelm the flavour of the wines you’re serving, and to carefully match up different drinks with the meals you put out. At the same time, it’s possible to consider not serving any food at all, or advising your guests to eat before they arrive.  For matching up wine...

These days, every kid from the age of 5 to 15, is mesmerized by the aura of online gaming. And no matter how hard parents try to keep their kids away from this culture, it is bound to affect them in some way, especially when their friends are doing it, so they want to do it too!

Wed, 27 Feb 2013 23:08:00 +0000

People have been talking about Oscars past week, and as the fervor is still on, I thought I'd share with you a few of my ramblings about the big Party Night, and how the speeches given by the Oscar winners may sound fake most of the times, yet it does give you a chance to reflect on who all is important in your life, and whom would you like to thank if you were on that stage, accepting the trophy!   February is the month that hosts a lot of these award functions, and not just the Oscars!...

As a mom, I am always on the look-out for healthy delicious recipes for my child, and as she is still a toddler, finger foods seem to top the list. Last week, I came across these beautiful Carrot Croquettes on Patricia's blog [photo courtesy Technicolor Kitchen]. They were delicious to look at, and I knew these would appeal to my whole family. But as I was going through the ingredient list, I saw that it contained Apricots along with the carrots. Fruit and veggies, both together in one recipe?!...

Fall is finally here, and along with Apples and Pumpkins, you can now find Pears, Peaches, Plums and Persimmons flooding the grocery aisles. Its funny how most of the Fall fruits start with the letter "P"!! Anyway, this post is all about Pears, the different types, how to choose them, how to cook them, and the best way to Poach Pears, which by itself, is a classic dessert to serve on chilly winter nights!

How To Make Caramel Sauce

Wed, 03 Oct 2012 23:12:00 +0000

Caramel is the backbone of caramel sauce, but it’s also ideal for coating nuts, fresh fruit, or the bottom of ramekins for Crème Caramel(pictured above) and other caramel-topped desserts. And it can add a touch of sweet and gooey to anything from cakes and tarts to brownies and ice creams. Contrary to what one might think, making Caramel Sauce at home is not too hard. It just needs some patience, and you need to stand hovering above the stove as sugar can go from Caramel to burnt in no time! I...

Ancho Chili Chocolate Brownies

Thu, 27 Sep 2012 16:49:00 +0000

Do you love Chocolate? Do you love a bit of heat or spice in your food? Then these outstandingly rich and fudgy brownies are a must-try! Made with good old cocoa powder and chocolate, but kicked up a notch with a teeny-tiny addition of ancho chile powder, these are a perfect introduction to adding heat in chocolate desserts. I had heard about Mexican hot chocolate, which uses this, and since then I wanted to try something like this. These brownies have a hint of spice without overwhelming the...

Thu, 20 Sep 2012 21:32:00 +0000

Many people have allergies to dairy, or are lactose-intolerant, making it inevitable for them to use milk alternatives, thereby choosing Soymilk instead of regular milk. And though several brands and flavors of Soymilk is available out there in the stores, if you use it on a daily basis, this can get to be an expensive affair! But, by making your own Soymilk at home, you can save tonnes of money, as well as get fresh milk every 3-4 days. Its really easy, and unbelievably cheap, plus you can use...

Peanut Butter Cheesecake

Fri, 31 Aug 2012 20:11:00 +0000

Cheesecake is a favorite dessert for kids and adults alike, but when it includes ingredients like chocolate and peanut butter, it becomes way too kid-friendly to resist! But aware of the fact that you should not let your kids indulge in large portions of dessert every now and then, I was happy to find this toned-down bite-sized cheesecake version, courtesy of Technicolor Kitchen, which uses digestive biscuits as a base for the chesecake, and instead of making one giant recipe, you can make...

Raspberry Almond Crumble

Fri, 24 Aug 2012 17:14:00 +0000

The easiest way to enjoy fresh fruits as a simple yet delicious dessert is by baking them into pies and crumbles! This lovely Raspberry Almond Crumble made with wholegrain flour is proof enough, don't you think! Crips, Crumbles, Cobblers and Pies all belong to the same family, but technically, they are slightly different. A Crumble is a British dessert containing stewed fruit topped with a crumbly mixture of butter, flour, and sugar. It is then baked in an oven until the topping becomes brown...

Mon, 06 Aug 2012 19:34:00 +0000

Summer is still going strong in California, and I harvested a big basket full of Heirloom Tomatoes last weekend. Needless to say, I have been hunting for recipes to bring these babies to good use, and after grilled Cheese Sandwiches, Tomato & Red Pepper Gazpacho, and Basil Tomato Pizza, I now needed something new, possibly with a fruit pairing, as I had ordered some lovely peaches, nectarines and oranges from specialty foods online, to really enjoy the taste of fresh homegrown heirloom...

Slow Cooker Cheesecake Recipe

Fri, 08 Jun 2012 22:13:00 +0000

When we think of delicious summer desserts, we often don’t think of the slow cooker. In all likelihood, as the weather warms up, you’ve already stowed it away in the back of the cabinet. Not only can you use this versatile appliance for just about anything, but there are many healthy and delicious recipes available. Desserts can be quite intimidating—most of us will opt for the frozen desserts in our local grocery stores rather than risk one more burnt pie crust or undercooked cake. But...

Fri, 08 Jun 2012 22:00:00 +0000

How many times ina week do you eat outside? Most people would vote for more than 3 times a week, and with the growth of chain restaurants available to satisfy your food cravings, it becomes hard, and a bit challenging to find local eateries that still keep up to their promise of providing fresh and unique recipes that you won't find at a chain restaurant.

Strawberry Pudding has been a favorite since ages and eons, and as these berries are easily available almost all year round, there's no restraint on indulging in a sweet dessert pudding whenever you fancy to have one! Puddings can be of various types, creamy, gooey, gelatinous or cake-like, and as the last one is one of my favorites, I chose a baked pudding that's softer than a cake, yet light in texture.

Fun & Healthy Halloween Recipes

Fri, 21 Oct 2011 17:43:00 +0000

Halloween is a time that's often associated with sugary snacks like chocolate and candy, which can leave your kids wired on sugar and without the nutrition they need. However years of studying at an online university has taught me that just because a snack is healthy doesn't mean it has to be boring, remotely expensive or take a bunch of time to make. Halloween provides the perfect time to sneak in healthy food items in creative ways. Your kids will have so much fun creating and eating these...
