Fresh Corn Pudding with Cardamom Flavor – To Whip Out a Decadent dessert Was never so Easy

Be ready to join a Pot luck party in the evening, oh..and please if you can prepare a dessert it would be great” *click and the line got cut. This was my dear hubby who has given me four hours time before I could be ready with the dessert, kids and myself for the evening party. Mom is the last word for me when zillions of cook books and Google searches fail to give a result that is satisfactory. The frenzied search for a Vegan dessert (the host of the party prefer vegan) went futile and I had to call mom for help. Without even taking a moment she suggested I make fresh Corn pudding after confirming that I had corn in my pantry.

Ten Easy and Tangy Salad Dressings to Spice Up Your Salads

Make way for  Salads since summer is here! Versatile, scrumptious and healthy Salads make a refreshing meal in itself.  And making a good salad needs a little bit of knowledge about which oil to use and what kinds of Vinegars would go well. The most common ratio for a perfect salad is one part vinegar to three parts oil, with spices of personal taste.  A good dressing should be mild and not overpowering and should be able to bring out the best of flavours from the vegetables and fruits in it.

Homemade salad dressing add extra zing to the salad, and its quite economical and healthy too, as you can adjust the fats in the dressing according to your taste.

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.

Party Menu – Creamy Strawberry Ice Cream

Ice cream was not in the party menu a few years back, before I realized that many children dislike fruit salad or anything that is remotely related to or being refered as health food! Given a choice even my kids prefer Ice cream over anything healthy 🙂 So down comes my Ice cream maker each year, from that dark corner of the loft. The poor gadget sees the light of the day just once every year!

Party Menu – Mixed Fruit Salad with Custard

Mixed fruit salad is also another staple in all of my parties. A dessert easy to make and refreshing to eat with loads of seasonal fruits in it. At times I semi bake it for 15-20 minutes for a different dessert altogether. Add colorful fruit jelly and serve in a designer glass for a classy & exotic look.

Cottage Cheese Cake – Egg less and No cream version

What better than a light and healthy dessert after a scrumptious meal. This strawberry flavored Cottage Cheese Cake falls in the same category and makes a perfect dessert for my family most of the times. The fact that this recipe is egg less, no gelatin and no cream bake, unlike the normal cheese cakes which are cream based or use condensed milk, makes it a healthier version too.

Fresh pineapple gives a refreshing flavor to this cake, since my daughter likes anything that comes with pink and strawberry, following is the outcome 🙂
