Baked Mini Donuts

Today is the first day of a three day weekend. The daughter and I have an agreement that she eats whatever I make during school days and I make whatever she asks for during holidays. Most of the time it makes mt life easier though I understand I have to renegotiate this just before vacations. So today she asked for donuts and I had to … Continue reading Baked Mini Donuts


Announcing Kid’s Delight – Baked Treats

I am hosting Srivalli’s Kid’s Delight event for a whole month – from August 16 – September 15. The theme for this event is Baked Treats. I realised I over emphasise the health aspect of food when it comes to feeding my daughter. I see that is the case for most parents and guardians. So I want to take this opportunity to indulge and treat … Continue reading Announcing Kid’s Delight – Baked Treats


Some dishes you love because they are nutritious and others because they are comfort food. But my primary reason to start liking a waffle was that it looks so pretty. Such cute little squares inside a slightly larger one and can be doused in honey or smeared with any preserve of your choice. Sigh!!! It was one of my first picks in a buffet breakfast … Continue reading Waffles

Stuffed & Baked Apples

    This is a sinfully delightful way to eat apples. It’s rich and juicy and warm and cozy. Also, it’s apples and hence predominantly guilt free!    The best part was I could get almost one apple along with some raisins and walnuts into the little one’s stomach. Makes it a favorite right away! Also, it’s a quick and easy desert to serve while having … Continue reading Stuffed & Baked Apples

Baked Mushroom Parmesan

    If you have read more than three posts in my blog, you will know I simply love Parmesan. It lends itself beautifully to grating unlike cheddar which has to be frozen or mozzarella which sticks to the grater and makes cleaning a mess. It’s not just the ease but it’s perfectly salty and creamy and cheesy to taste and it goes with almost anything. … Continue reading Baked Mushroom Parmesan

He is usually the type who … Continue reading Baked Plantain Chips

So I am always trying out different recipes with potatoes to keep the variety and health aspects intact. But once in a way, a little indulgence is allowed, right? I found this amazing recipe here and these wedges turned out so awesome! I … Continue reading Baked Potato Wedges

Baked eggplant with Parmesan 

I have always had a turbulent relationship with the eggplant. Earlier I used to simply hate eating it while my mother made umpteen efforts to somehow get it down my throat. When I got married I had to get used to them because the husband loves eggplant. I have found that it is easier to make things he likes the way he likes them rather … Continue reading Baked eggplant with Parmesan 

Lotus Root Chips #MonsoonMojo

When we moved to Malaysia, I made a resolution to include as many local delicacies as possible in our day to day meals. That is a tough proposition since we are vegetarians (flexible on eggs) and this is a seafood paradise. So, as a first step, I decided to start adapting local vegetables that aren’t so common in India. My first experiment was with the … Continue reading Lotus Root Chips #MonsoonMojo

Cabbage nu Muthia

 My internet connection is driving me nuts. It went on a fifty day vacation which is beyond its annual leave quota it’s finally back but is still in vacation mode and is willing to work only with innumerable additional perks. So since I can’t disconnect it, I decided to reduce my dependence on it. I dug out my ancient cookbooks and decided to derive inspiration from … Continue reading Cabbage nu Muthia
