Quick Bread – Zucchini Bread

We had the children’s day celebration at our apartment complex for which they organised a drawing and colouring contest. Sounds good, right? But no. Parents were breathing down the necks of the little ones (read 8 to 10 year olds!) giving them detailed instructions on what they need to draw or the colour they need…

Khachapuri

At first glance, the name Khachapuri does sound like a chaat available at Chowpatty beach in Bombay, somewhere between sookha puri and pani puri. But probe further and you discover that it is a traditional Georgian bread filled with cheese. In fact, it is the national dish of Georgia. It is usually shaped like a boat…

Italian Lunch Spread

Anyone who has spent more than a few minutes on my blog or talking to me will know I adore all things cheese and all food Italian. I have been planning on making a full fledged Italian meal forever now but never got around to doing it. The Thali theme for this month’s Blogging Marathon…

Corn and Capsicum Soup

I believe this is the longest I have gone in my blog without a recipe including cheese. And how could we let that happen? Though this one doesn’t have cheese as a main ingredient, it does lend a lovely flavour to the soup and though it is optional, I would recommend it wholeheartedly. This soup…

Cheesy Potato Soup

  I figured another soup recipe would be a good finish to this week’s marathon.  I was struggling to choose between a nutritious beetroot soup (a recipe that has been in the  ‘to do’ list for ages) and this creamy, cheesy, rich potato soup. Not much of a contest especially since it’s so much easier…

Egg & cheese toast

   This is my favorite start breakfast because it’s easy, quick and filling. If I have bread at home, I usually make one of these for each one of us and since it’s quick, I can sleep an additional 15 minutes in the morning which is absolute bliss!     The funny part is I just…

Cheesy Ropes

This week’s theme at the Blogging Marathon is tea time snacks. This reminds me of this awesome samosa kachori shop in Bangalore which was very close home. Usually the husband would walk to the store around 4 pm during weekends and get fresh and hot kachoris (for me) and samosas (for him) and we would…

Baked Spinach & Corn

I have seen and heard so much about baked spinach and corn but somehow I have never tried making it. I always end up making pasta with white sauce and forget about this wonderful combination. So when my favorite chef on TV, Venkatesh Bhat showed his recipe I knew I had to make it. So…
