Oregon Vacation

Hola folks, how have you been? It’s so good to be back here with you guys, it feels like I’ve been away for ages. We had a wonderful time vacationing in the states of Washington and Oregon. A much needed break for all of us in the family. My teen graduated from high school and…

The Party Day

Everyone confirmed their availability for the party on May 21st at 3pm. Twelve girls were coming and Shreya was thrilled. She couldn’t wait to get together with her besties and have a blast. While she began the count down, I started to monitor the weather for the day. It was toggling between rainy and cloudy…

Our Little Girl Turns Seven

Our little drama queen Shreya turned seven this month. Seven, what a fun age to be! But, where did the time go? Why does it fly so fast? Can’t we have a pause button that’d freeze time for however long we’d want to and allow us to enjoy those adorable phases of our kids to…

Our Vacation in Kerala

Work has been keeping me very busy these days and I have not been able to make any posts or spend time going through the wonderful posts my fellow bloggers have been sharing recently.

Malai Koftha

Weekends are so good. To unwind, be lazy, do nothing, nap, shop, catch up with friends and family, cook and eat peacefully, and so on.

Multipurpose Curry Paste

Like most children, my 6 year old girl often has some stories to share with me at the  end of her school day. It usually is about someone’s birthday or something interesting they did at school or her friends’ outfit, shoes, hairdo etc. On some days there are more serious stories and some days with no stories…

Ridiculously Simple Tomato Biryani

What is your opinion about the current trends of diets, eating right, clean eating etc.? Isn’t it becoming more common than usual to hear/know/talk about health foods? Isn’t our generation more obsessed than any other about healthy eating?

Silky and Creamy Mor Kozhambu

It is going to be almost a year (well, nine months to be precise) since we moved in to our new house. We’ve been enjoying the additional space, luxury and the sense of accomplishment every single day. It gives us so much of pleasure to decorate it, have friends over and build cherish-able memories one after the…

The Tastiest Ever Vegetable Kurma!

Everyone around me knows that I’m a foodie, big time. Thoughts and questions related to food run as a parallel stream all the time in my mind. Wherever I may go, whatever I may do, my foodie antennae would always be up and active to pick up ideas, tips and knowledge about food/cooking.

Mango Yogurt and Berry Parfait

Today’s post is a special one and I’m going to be sharing some exciting news with you🙂. If you don’t have the patience to read through the entire post to know about it, simply scroll to the end🙂.

Mango Citrus Mocktail

It is raining mangoes everywhere. Grocery stores, food blogs, photography sites, lunch/dinner menus I’m hearing from my friends and family – all have something to do with mangoes now. I’m joining the mango bandwagon too with this simple yet super delicious Mango Citrus Mocktail.

Semiya Payasam (Vermicelli Kheer)

Are you someone that tries to find a reason to have some dessert every time? I seem to have become one over the years. I feel that the guilt of indulging in sweets vanishes almost instantly when it is backed up with a good reason😉.
