Nadan Mutta Roast - Kerala Egg Roast

Egg Roast is a popular dish served in Kerala, my home state. It tastes awesome with a lot of Kerala Breakfast items like Appam, Idiyappam, Parota etc. You can serve this is roti or rice as well. To me,the key taste ingredient is Curry Leaves. They impart an awesome aroma to this dish.

Vegan Low Fat Creamy Alfredo

Eating Healthy is sometimes easier than you think. Alfredo is an awesome sauce to go with pasta. But it is very high in calorie and fat. Now if we can make it rich in vegetables (yes, you heard me), it is a big winner. And trust me, this does not feel like you are eating loads of vegetables. This is not my original recipe. I saw it a long time ago in some site, unfortunately don't remember where so can't link back.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip Cookie

When it comes to cookies almost nothing can beat a Chocolate Chip Cookie. But what happens when the base is also a chocolate. Yumm. I would have baked a double chocolate chip cookie. That was the initial plan. But then I bought some peanut butter chips when we were in US. Ok. Now I  love the combination of Chocolate and peanut butter. What's not to love?

White Chocolate Coconut Lime Cookies - Starbucks Copycat - Eggless

When I got my first oven, I dreamt of baking cookies for my child. Forget the fact that I did not have a child at that time. Or the fact that I did not know how to bake. Slowly over the years I have learned to bake, to get over the fear of baking.

Last week we were in Starbucks and there were some sample cookies to try. The moment my son and I ate those cookies we knew we were baking them. They were so refreshing, very tropical, super yumm. On the last day of holiday we got our acts together and baked these awesome cookies. Only problem with these cookies is that you cannot stop eating them.

Blueberry Goji Superfood Smoothie

Next in the series of awesome smoothies that I have been trying out is this Blueberry Goji Smoothie. As usual, the frozen banana add the creamy texture, no need to add any ice. Goji berry has been in my list of things to try for long. Goji berries contain vitamin C, vitamin B2, vitamin A, iron, selenium and are very good for your immune system. Flax seeds  that I always add to my smoothie is a great source of Omega 3 fatty acid. Great source for those who do not eat fish. Blueberries are full of anti oxidants and a great source of Vitamin K. The addition of oats makes this an absolutely fantastic smoothie.
