    MEGA BLOGGING MARATHON – APRIL 2018 #87TH BLOGGING MARATHON THEME: EXPLORE THE FLAVORS – INTERNATIONAL BREAKFAST DAY 4 “Breakfast like a King, Lunch like a Prince and Dine like a Pauper.”    Today for breakfast is D for Dutch Baby Pancakes. Before we go to the recipe, let me assure you it has nothing to do with the country Netherlands or the Dutch. These pancakes, also called German pancakes, A Bismarck or even Dutch puffs were made first by Victor Manca in his cafe in Seattle, North America. His daughter named them Dutch Baby Pancakes where perhaps her pronunciation of Deutsch sounded more like Dutch. The confusion now is whether they originate from USA or Germany. Either way, its my contribution for an International Breakfast…

    Easy dessert Theme: No Bake Desserts BM#78 Week 3 Day 1     I love making easy desserts. It usually means I get to serve it in a glass and its just a matter of putting a few ingredients together to make a satisfying dessert. Srivalli, the starter of Blogging Marathon suggested that for this theme we make desserts that normally we would bake but instead to beat the heat, make them in such a manner that we don’t have to bake them in a convectional oven.      When I decided to choose the theme, the first baked dessert that came to my mind was apple crumble or as its known apple crisp. Basically, chopped apples mixed with a bit of butter, sugar and…

    My first experience with an ice cream maker My first visit to Canada last year was full of excitement and my son tried to make it special in every respect. He froze loads of blueberries for us as it would have been out of season by the time we reached there. I was obviously excited to try out Neel’s ice cream maker. Read the instructions properly, browsed the internet to know to use frozen fruits to make ice cream. There was no one recipe I followed, took what I thought would work for me from here and there and made soft serve blueberry ice cream. My son and hubby were excited but I was like a little kid, over excited. We couldn’t even wait to…

    a cool breakfast Woke up a bit late after tossing and turning half the night as it was pretty humid. Suddenly it has become very hot in Montreal. After doing a bit of housework, it was time for breakfast. Didn’t want to have toast, cereal or anything hot. Out came the yogurt and fruit. Instead of having everything on its own I made a nice cool smoothie. Filling, cooling, satisfying and delicious. I love using Neel’s Gordan Ramsey 3 in one hand blender. Within seconds had the smoothie ready. Its a powerful blender. Try out  a smoothie with all sorts of fruit and yogurt. Blueberries contain anthocyanin antioxidants, are an excellent source of  manganese and Vitamin C. Low in fat, and are said to help…
