By
Jul 21, 2011

Most Americans can’t imagine camping without making S’mores. Well, last year, I decided we as a family would try our best to not consume Corn Syrup. Every package of Marshmallows I’ve seen has it as a staple ingredient. So, that meant we didn’t make S’mores when we went camping…Guess who wasn’t the most popular Mama?  […]

I am always delighted with myself when I take a bite of some new recipe I create on the fly and find it is delicious!  It never ceases to surprise me, as funny as that sounds. I guess I make as many “mistakes” as I do “successes” when it comes to creating new recipes. This […]

After researching vegan cookies, I came up with this recipe. It is egg-less, and butter-less, but tastes light and is surprisingly soft. You can easily make these more crisp by baking longer. And, since it is so simple, it lends itself well to whatever additions you want. I have thought that crushed Walnuts, Pecans or […]

I love the smell of Basil. And, Carrots are one of my favorite vegetables. These are the two reasons for creating this soup recipe.  It works as a great base to add complimentary vegetables, and if you chose to add fat and protein, all you need to do is add some Ghee, Butter, Chicken or […]

Recipe Review: Artisan Bread in 5 Min a Day!

By
May 5, 2011

In my quest to make food from scratch, bread was the one thing that daunted me. I imagined a laborious process of kneading, kneading and more kneading. Plus, the family was pretty happy with home made Tortillas and Crackers. So, I didn’t have any pressure. But, my Aunt linked to this recipe on Facebook, and […]

Sometimes, while I’m drifting off to sleep, I think of a recipe I want to create.  I can almost taste the various flavors and try to imagine what the marriage of them together become.  I try my best not to forget them the next morning, and usually find the time to try them out. Sharing […]

I made this up one day when I didn’t have any lettuce. It was delicious with the sweetness of the Cucumber complimenting the saltiness of the Celery and punctuated by the Carrot flavor. If you happen to have Lettuce on hand, it would add more body and some greens. Options: This salad is really a […]

Recipe: Garden Green Salad

By
Apr 4, 2011

April will always remind me of my Grandma. Her birthday would be this month. She was an avid gardener and practiced edible landscaping before it became popular. But, she was not a fan of salads, and referred to them as “rabbit food.”  I love salads, so I dedicate this month’s recipes to my Grandma the […]
