    Food on Sticks is fun The 109th theme for FoodieMonday, Bloghop is On A Stick decided by the initiator of this group Waagmi who blogs at Cooking is Funn. Just a few days ago my daughter in law posted some photos of their visit to Kuala Lumpur. She showed us food stalls serving all kinds of food on sticks or skewers. While most appeared to be meat and fish based, I could make out a few sticks of veggie stuff. Serving food on sticks or skewers is fast becoming popular at Bars, Lounges, Dinner Parties, Cocktails,as Street Food as people don’t want to get their fingers dirty and food on sticks or skewers does look pretty, colorful and tempting. Just a few days ago I…

    Love this recipe    Its Monday and yes you’ve guessed right.. its #FoodieMonday #Bloghop day. Our #98th theme was chosen by Saswati who blogs at Delish Potpourri. Saswati’s got a beautiful blog full of travel stories, a variety of recipes from different parts of the world and I love her desserts. She suggested #CWFB which means Cooking with a fellow blogger. For this theme we had a choose any recipe from a fellow blogger in our group. I have so many recipes bookmarked from all these members, it was difficult to choose which one to cook.    Sticking to my healthy cooking as far as possible, I narrowed it down to 2 recipes that I’ve tried and made again and again. One is rava kara…

    Where Are The Yolks???? Mondays come too fast. Imagine we’re already into the 5th month of the year. Time flies. The 91st theme for #FoodieMonday #Bloghop group was decided by fellow member and blogger Nisa. She asked us to prepare something that will not take more than 20 minutes. With #20minrecipes as the theme, I thought smoothies, salads, energy balls. All these barely take 5-10 minutes. It probably takes longer to gather up the ingredients. I thought one more salad and my group would say ‘oh no not another salad,’. Smoothies ??? No its a bit cold to have them. Did I mention its finally raining? Energy balls… I swear I had some medjool dates but can’t find them in the overstuffed fridge. In Mombasa…

    A good light dinner or lunch idea   Woman’s Day was on March 8th and for many it may have not been so special a day or maybe your family made it special for you. Hubby dear spent the day questioning when is Man’s Day??? Several times my daughter fights not to be treated differently from her two siblings, but we just cannot help worrying a bit more for her than her two brothers. The world is still not safe for women. They are easy targets and its so easy for men to label them as cheap, brainless, provocative, asking for it, weak, animals, uneducated, selfish, etc. We have given our daughter the same opportunities as her brothers.However, we are just a bit more cautious…

     fluffy treats in the morning   The first time ever I had pancakes was when we went to Florida with my family and friends. IHOP is the place where we gorged on those fluffy buttery delights. The non vegetarians were served pancakes with bacon and sausages. The quantity was humungous. That was probably our 3 days breakfast all in one day! Its amazing how big the portions are in USA. When our pancakes arrived, there was a huge pale yellow ball on top of the pile of pancakes. I thought wow they serve ice cream for breakfast and secondly I thought we had to share the pancakes. Immediately realized that the blob was butter and the pancakes were individual portions. The next time I had pancakes…

    a spicy brunch treat Special Theme: Redo Old Posts BM#78 Week 4 Day 3     Go to any typical Gujarati family for breakfast on weekends and masala puri or tikhi puri with sugary masala tea will surely be served to you. The younger Gujaratis usually do not make them that often as they prefer to shy away from fried stuff, but they do relish them when someone else has made them. My Dad’s favourite…. anytime can be tikhi puri time. If bhabhi makes dosas for the rest of the family, my dad is happy with tikhi puri and a mug of tea. There are 2 versions of the tikhi puri you can make, the soft type or the slightly crunchy type. The soft type is…
