Welcome March

We still have more snow to melt outside, at least we started to see longer days.

Cookie Swap


These are the cookies/pastry I baked for a cookie swap today. Not sure what they were till yesterday, I had a vague idea of seeing them somewhere in a magazine. Thanks to internet age, I could find what they are and how to make them.

Almond Biscotti

On a cold day, these are a wonderful combination with a hot cup of tea. I always thought I am a savory person, but these biscotti are too addictive. It all started when I bought thin almond biscotti and I started eating couldn't stop myself. I looked for a recipe in couple of places and tried them. I really wanted thin ones but better luck next time.

#Kid's Lunch boxes

Couldn't help myself from taking pictures. I know I do them almost everyday (and I love making lunches) and felt why not share these when time permits. I am sure these pictures will give me an idea for some of those days when mind goes blank what to pack. These could get boring as my kids eat same old and I repeat a lot of them and it could come to a stage where, someone could guess what I have in stock in my pantry and refrigerator LOL...
Almond butter S/W, red peppers strips, grapes, Avocado slice and yogurt. Multigrain cake s/w with almond butter for snack

Chicken hot-dog pieces in thermos, milk, yogurt, avocado s/w, Apple slices and a banana.

Ghee aroma filled the kitchen

Aroma of ghee filled the air. Nothing can beat a blob of ghee in rice with dal or a parata. Making it at home is simple, easy and tastes great. All it needs is to bring butter to boil and little patience to avoid it from burning. You will end up with this goodie to enjoy!
