Recipe | No-Bake Cheesecake with Cottage Cheese & Nutella – A quick & easy festive dessert

Desserts are made of sugar and love”  No wonder most of us like to round off their meals with something sweet.

A delicious meal is great, but a dessert is even better. A handful of fresh fruits, few biscuits, a little yogurt or cottage cheese and you are in for a refreshing and healthy treat everyday. Dessert recipes that are easy on the stomach are preferred anytime in my home to heavy & creamy ones.

Recipe | Fresh Plum and Almond Pudding aka Aloobukhara Phirni and a contest on IFBM

Firni is a delightful healthy dessert and could be cooked without much efforts. An earthen pot is a perfect vessel to set this dessert, as the porous surface of the pot will absorb water leaving a thick & creamy Firni behind.

The tart small Plums, mildly sweet coconut milk and the nutty almonds give a  wonderful burst of flavors and taste to this creamy rich Phirni.

Recipes | Quick and Easy Indian Sago Desserts – Mail that brings a smile back

There is no better time than now to be happy again to receive a mail from Natasha, feature writer of a popular Asian magazine ‘Better Photography’.

I just had a look at your beautiful blog and I must commend you on your work. Your passion for food really shows! There is such love and care in the way you have arranged your food and props. Being a photographer myself, I really love the picture you have taken. There is a beautiful sense of composition and the colours are stunning :)

She sent me the above mail a few days back and asked whether she can share a few photographs of mine in their website with due credits to me.

Recipes | Two Easy & Healthy Avocado Desserts – Food is the Most Delicious Expression of Emotions

And then came the moment we all were waiting for. I almost held my breath and didn’t move a bit when my children took their first bite. They ate, looked at me and gave a mysterious smile which peaked my curiosity :)

I could not make out the taste when I scooped my first bite into Avocado Chocolate Mousse, but with the second bite I was instantly transformed into chocolaty haven. The rich, creamy and buttery taste of Avocado mousse seduced me into taking one bite and then another, till I was scraping the corners and reached the bottom of my ramekin.

The no-cook, easy and quick Avocado mousse taste exactly like how I expect my dessert to be. Food is the most delicious expression of emotions.

Desserts | Three Easy Panna Cotta Recipes – Life is a Reflection of Your Choices

Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, make a different choice.” ~ unknown.

More than halfway through the journey of my life and I feel good about most of the choices that I made. Of tying the knot with the man I loved, leaving a lucrative corporate job for taking care of my children and then crossing the boundaries of my comfort zone to learning and reaching out for newer and richer experiences in life. And what a wonderful journey it has turned out to be!

The online journey which started with my blog Lite Bite in 2009 with a strong passion for food, few recipes, a pocket size camera and

Recipes | Two Easy and Healthy Fruity Yogurt Popsicle or Froyo – All I do is to Count my Blessings

Madam, would you please come and grace us by lighting lamp and inaugurating the food fest in our restaurant?

“Errr…may I know whom I am speaking to and how did you get my…”

I got the contact details from your editor friend of xyz magazine” The voice on the other end interrupted me and replied without pausing.

Thanks for the invite, I will be there” I replied politely and cut the line thinking this may be another gag to get the food bloggers involved in marketing their brand. But a personal invitation from the concern person who did not know about my blog proved me wrong.

Reminiscing upon my online journey as food blogger makes me feel humble every time. And all I do is to close my eyes and count my blessings!

Recipes | Two Easy and Healthy Fruity Desserts, Cottage Cheese Mousse & Yogurt Parfait – Say Yes to Desserts

A delicious meal is great, but a dessert is even better. A handful of fresh fruits, few biscuits, a little yogurt or cottage cheese and you are in for a refreshing and healthy treat everyday. Dessert recipes that are easy on the stomach are preferred anytime in my home to heavy & creamy ones. Nothing is more  rewarding than to see my children appreciating & preferring these home made healthy desserts over store bought ice creams.

These two desserts are now a regular feature on our dinner table, just that the fruits and the biscuit/cornflakes base keep changing to bring in more variation in the recipes. Cottage cheese and yogurt give that feathery touch and extra freshness to the recipes.

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.

Recipes | Fruity Firni – A Creamy Indian Rice Pudding Shared with a Food Blogger Friend at Home

You can take a girl out of desserts, but you can’t take desserts out of a girl. Oh yes, I was born with a dessert spoon! According to my nanny my mom was feasting on hot Malpuas dipped in creamy Rabdi a few minutes before she went into labour pains, much to the chagrin of my stressed out doctor father.

Desserts were an important part of our everyday meal during growing  up years in Udaipur, Rajasthan. Our family was certainly not an exception in a state where a day starts and ends with a sweet, what with people queuing up in food shops before the day breaks, fishing out hot Jalebis floating in warm milk for breakfast.

Recipe | An easy No-Bake Strawberry Delight for A Sweet Beginning of 2013

The 3 C’s of life: choices, chances, and changes. You must make a choice to take a chance or your life will never change.’ Unknown. Choices I did make and chances I did take in the year 2012. Some were good…some were bad. While the good ones are carried forward to 2013, the bad ones are buried then and there.

Life has been a roller coaster ride to me, just when I thought I have had enough of it and its time to sit back and relax, I find myself ride the roller coaster all over again.

Hats off to whoever said that ‘Life begins at the end of your comfort zone!’ Am glad that I stepped out of mine for doing things I always wanted to do. Coming out of the comfort zone and jumping into the corporate world again was a big decision of 2012 in my life. Nevertheless I am enjoying every moment of it and I’m game, as long as it does not hamper my family life.
