A Flavorful Herb – Dill

Dill is a medicinal herb and an aromatic spice used in many international cuisines. Not very common in many Indian kitchens, Dill is an integral part of Indonesian and Italian cuisine. The very first time most of us get acquainted to Dill is when we were given Dill water to cure colic & digestive problems during infancy. The sweet aroma and taste of Dill water I used to give to my kids still lingers.

Though my mother used Dill sparingly in her cooking, I like the flavor of Dill in many of my baking recipes and other dishes. More so after being introduced to the health benefits associated with this aromatic & appetizing medicinal herb.

Easy Cinnamon Tea-Cake

A piece of cake and a cup of tea will give any evening a perfect start. This Easy Cinnamon Tea Cake is my all time favorite. I love the earthy aroma of cinnamon in my cake, and the coffee adds up the extra zing to the cake. My kids don’t enjoy this delicacy as most of kids do not like coffee and cinnamon flavors. All the more better, I get to indulge in it all by myself, with a few slices spared for my dear hubby 🙂
