Recipes |Indian Spiced Wheat-Germ Muffins and Finger Millet Cookies – Food brings people together

We spent some quality time talking, reflecting and sharing some of our personal and professional matters with each other. We did more of window shopping than the actual prop shopping as she had restriction to carry the luggage in flight.   

We never stopped talking and sharing food tips all along our way to market much to the chagrin of some shop keepers who were expecting us to do more of shopping than talking :)

I add a handful of black sesame seeds to whatever I cook or bake at home, be it a Sambhar, Rasam, rice, or any Indian subji which takes care of the calcium intake of my family” A tip from her which is religiously followed by me hence-forth.

Recipes | Baking 5 Easy Muffins to Realize that Joy Multiplies When Shared Among Friends

When the phone rang I was in the kitchen, making my evening tea, humming and swaying to the music of yesteryear’s on FM radio.

We have an invite for ‘R’ s 20th marriage anniversary tomorrow. It will be a small gathering of about six families, please decide upon some useful gift for the couple.” Said hubby and disconnected the phone.

Hmm….time to catch up with some old friends after a long gap….good that I always have a few sets of useful kitchenware, books and similar stuffs in store for such unexpected invites, when I don’t have time to go out and shop.

I picked up a beautiful light brown ceramic set of 6 coffee mugs I bought last year from Pondicherry and wrapped in a purple cover laced with small flowers and dots.

Recipes | Three Fruity Muffins – Weekend Baking is a Real Stress Buster

Life was much easier when Apple and Blackberry were just fruits‘. Inventions in modern day technology has reached to its pinnacle whereas I am still sitting at the bottom, hoping to catch hold of the tech dragon by its tail some day. But by the time I apprehend a little about how these applications work something new crops up and the former become obsolete. Alas, till date an Apple and a Blueberry continue to remain just plain fruits to this technology challenged mommy.

Molten Lava Chocolate Cupcakes & Cake

If marriages are made in heaven so are prized friendships! This post of mine reinforced my belief in the said statement, with some cherished friends in my booty :) Want to know more…well this is how it happened. A good blogger friend Nelly is getting married across the country and I wish I could organize a virtual party for her.

Conceptualizing the Virtual Party; I do organize real time parties quite often for large gatherings but an on-line party…well, have never done anything like this before. I was a bit apprehensive organizing a virtual party with fellow food bloggers within a short period of time. DM’s to a few Tweeples were sent and I was overwhelmed to see all of them responding positively to this idea. We made a small group and started exchanging mails sharing our views about the whole concept.

Eggless Wheatgerm & Banana Muffins – Healthy Treat Which is Scrumptious too!

Eating healthy meals and including foods which does wonders to your body is no easy task. Our palates are more accustomed to eating what we eat day in and day out.

Wholewheat English Muffins – A Healthy Breakfast treat!

‘I am a Muffin Man’..and here is what I baked, an English Muffin on a griddle! And my daughter never stopped humming the rhyme the whole day with these muffins in her hand :-) Ever since I made my healthy Palm sugar Mixed fruit preserve I was thinking of a great accompaniment to supplement it. And what better than a hot whole-wheat English Muffins right from the griddle.

Unlike the oven baked muffins with leavening agents, these English muffins baked with yeast are extremely light and soft in texture. These are actually quick-baking breads and make a good breakfast when smeared with butter, honey or fruit preserves. These are generally made in small portions and are generally not very sweet and are devoid of frosting. Made in flat circular shape these muffins are traditionally split open with a fork and served with hot butter with tea.

Easy Eggless Kiwi Fruit Muffins for a Change

These unusual looking fruit never caught my fancy till I first saw the skinned and sliced Kiwi fruit! Beauty wrapped in a dirty gift wrap.. Many still brush them aside as a potato with a weird hairdo or a Chikoo fruit gone berserk :)

I am in love with these tiny exotica packed with more vitamin C than our humble orange! Barring the ugly exterior the fruit is extremely beautiful and quite dramatic from inside. Speckled with tiny black & crunchy seeds and a color which will put any paint company go insane!

Easy Eggless Wheat Germ Muffins

Wheat Germ is one among the precious food ingredients which often fight for a place in my refrigerator. Blueberries, black current, prunes are some of the few contenders. Since getting these exotic foods is difficult here, I normally buy them in large quantities whenever I get a chance to do so.

I dry roast these Wheat germs and store them in a zip lock inside the refrigerator. These then get into my baking, porridge, chapattis, chutneys and various other recipes. Wheat germ gives a beautiful nutty flavor to the dishes.

Eggless Carrot Muffins

Easy to bake, with very few ingredients and steps to go, muffins could be any first timers’ delight.

I like to bake muffins with added fruits and flavors to add variety for my kids’ snack box. Carrot being one of my favorites in vegetables I often use it in most of my cooking. Carrot muffins can be made in advance and frozen in refrigerator for future use. You can defrost the muffins in microwave whenever you require. It stays good for almost 4-5 days at normal temperature, in an airtight container.
