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.

A Bread, a Brownie and Wonderful Zucchini All The Way!

Sometimes simple things in life can bring in windfall gains and mine came through the wonderful vegetable Zucchini I bought this weekend. Yes, this small veggie got transformed into three different delectable dishes for my family last Sunday. A bread, a brownie and a few pancakes. Thought of posting all together but then restrained myself doing the same, as the post will become too long and will be difficult to categorize all. So here are the two Zucchini delights for you to indulge in…a bread and a brownie. Don’t miss out on the easy & quick breakfast of Zucchini savory pancakes.

The plain Zucchini bread with no other flavors and very less of sugar tasted very good and was liked by me and my hubby. The chocolate in the brownies marred the flavors and taste of the veggie but anyway became a hit with my kids 🙂
