Recipe & Food Styling | Banana-Orange Oats Cake – It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop..

It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop.” ~ Confucius

I am not a prolific user of various social media platforms but I do appreciate the power it holds to connect with people and to grow your business.

There are times when family commitments and your work fill a large part of your life and the best you can do is to unplug from social media on a regular basis.

These small breaks help me focus on the work in hand and also give ample time to relax.

Recipe & Food Styling | Eggless Mango Semolina Squares

It has been 7 years already and the kind of euphoria that Lite Bite is creating, year after year is beyond words.

Lately I have been so wrapped up in constant outdoor photo-shoots and family commitments that this online baby is completely neglected.

But then, it never ceases to surprise me any less. Lite Bite is listed in the ‘Indian Top Blog’ List‘ of 2015  yet again….some good online karmas I suppose 🙂

Recipe | Two Easy Eggless Plum Cakes – Power of  food to evoke the past

She was a brilliant baker and we used to eagerly wait for Christmas so we could savour her rich fruity cakes. I can never forget that transparent box of neatly arranged dark, dense and moist fruity slices of Plum cake that she would lovingly share with us every year.

An Anglo-Indian by birth and a spinster, she was our English teacher who stayed very close to our colony in Udaipur. She was short and frail, she kept her long shiny white hair plaited down her neck and her hands would always smell like vanilla pods.

Recipes | Two Easy Eggless Orange Cakes with Oats and whole-wheat

Christmas is round the corner and it’s just not right without a little bit of baking. I have been baking non-stop for the last few days and loving every moment of packing and sending these goodies to friends.

Nothing can beat the rich spiced Christmas cake loaded with caramel, brandy, vine fruits and nuts. But when short on time, I look forward to my short-cut recipes.

Recipes | Whole-wheat Bread & Mini Date Ring-Cakes – Travel to Reconnect with our Roots

Stop. Take a deep breath. And walk, fly or catch a train away from the city and into a world where the average pace of life is slower than slow. “It is not down in any map, true places never are”  ~Herman Melville. 

Five years of Food blogging has completely changed the way I thought my life will take me few years back. Life now, is fast paced and hectic than ever. And so are my endless ‘to-do‘ lists and ever growing goals year after year.
Yes, its time to slow down the pace of life, forget cell phones, turn off the computer and disconnect with online media to get more focused and to enjoy the small moments in life.

Baking | Two Healthy Fresh Fruit Squares with Finger Millet and Oats – Time for Spring Cleaning

‘Our house is clean enough to be healthy, and dirty enough to be happy’. Yes, we decided to repaint the house after putting the long due project to back burner for years. The house is in total mess, but this exercise is a good lesson not to collect things which we may never use in life. There are sackful of such useless articles peeping errr..sleeping in the cupboards and overhead lofts, and I am on a disposing spree…finally.

On a positive note, painting your house is a good chance to do some spring cleaning as well. My old oven, box TV, stone age printer, bangle boxes, speakers, toasters, fluffy teddy bears, bagful of plastic kitchenware…looks like I have a real Pandora box…and believe me some of these have never seen the light of the day. Getting attached with these not so useful objects which were a part of my life some years back is inevitable, and I really feel sad to part with.

Recipe | Healthy Snack of Roasted Green Beans – Of Fun, Food and Blogger Meets

I don’t know to roll a perfect Sushi and I get cold feet when I bake Macaroon and probably will never be able to appreciate a glass of wine alongside my dinner plate…but still, cooking to me is a way to unwind. I am in my most happiest of moods when in kitchen, cooking for family and friends.

Did I hear ‘Old school’?  I accept it with pleasure 🙂

I was added to this group by Charan Sarvanan a versatile blogger and a treasured friend now. Back then I ignored this group on the pretext of  just another FB group where bloggers drop in to give a shout out for their new blog posts or share the….

Recipe | No-Bake Nutty Chocolate Biscuit Cake – Easy as Can be

If there is no chocolate in heaven, I am not going‘  ~ Jane Seabrook   Oh no I am not jumping in the bandwagon of chocoholics. I enjoy my celibacy with chocolates barring a few occasional indulgences now and then. And given a choice between different flavors it is vanilla for me.

Anything tastes good if it has chocolate in it” says my little princess as a matter of fact.  No doubt that this luscious, gooey and seductive food is defined as world’s perfect food by many. A tiny bar of chocolate can save many bad days and meals at home.
I used half of the pack by rolling out the chocolate Truffles and made this no-bake nutty chocolate cake with the rest. Thanks to my friend now I shop for more of these ‘once upon a time disdained’ cookies 😉

Baking | Easy Eggless Chocolate Cake – And a Scrumptious Piece of Art

‘All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt’. ~ Charles M. Schulz

You know your children are growing when you start getting gifts from them. I was pleasantly surprised this year when I received a beautiful card and a precious gift from my children. Oh..well, they did give a hint that both shared equal amount from their piggy bank for the same, you smart a… I know, a quick re-fill is needed.

Something left for me in your bank or you spent all your love and money on mom, my birthday is round the corner” asked hubby, staring lovingly at the kids waiting for their confirmation. Sniff..sniff..I smell  something burning 😉

Baking | Cornish Saffron Bread/Cake – An Airy, Aromatic and Delectable Bake

The vast open Saffron fields in Jammu is worth a visit for any traveler in India. I was amazed to see these tiny plants with no prominent shoots and leaves, but just large bright violet flowers with crimson colored stigma or saffron as the main plant body. Acres of farm land could yield just a few grams of Saffron. No doubt the hard work that goes in cultivating Saffron makes this spice rare & pricey.

In India Saffron or Kesar as is called in Hindi, is extensively used in making milk based desserts and for cooking aromatic basmati rice Biryani. Though I don’t use saffron in my bakes, these popular Indian saffron cookies – Nankhatai are my favorite.
