Homemade Spinach And Feta Gozleme
Homemade Spinach And Feta Gozleme

A quick Spinach and Feta Gozleme is one of the most requested and popular after-school snacks at our home. Made with my trusty 30-minute yoghurt-based gozleme dough recipe, the secret ingredient for faster rising and lighter dough is yeast. This golden, crispy stuffed...

Blackberry Overnight Oats
Blackberry Overnight Oats

Every summer our blackberry vine creeps a bit further and grows more tendrils that become robust branches heaving with juicy black fruit at the peak of the season. It is amazing how many berries you can stuff in your mouth when you are picking them off the vines. As a...

5-Min Salted Pecan Cinnamon Nut Butter

When I was little and the weather got cold in Mumbai during winter (or as cold as it could possibly get, which I am now realising wasn't a whole lot after experiencing winter in Sydney which in turn might seem very tame to you Swedes or Canadians), my mum used to make...

Paneer Chilli And Charred Corn Fritters

A Delicious After-School Protein-Filled Snack It's back to school and one of the highlights of my day is to fix a super quick, super delicious and nourishing after school snack in my 3pm coffee break. The older boy catches a train and bus back from high school while...

7 Ingredient Detox Smoothie
7 Ingredient Detox Smoothie

For the better part of the week, I eat and drink sensibly. And in a timely manner. But then the weekend arrives and all my routines go out of the window. Sometimes, we are out at the crack of dawn for soccer and end up having two breakfasts and no lunch. And dinner...

5 Minute Blueberry Chia Lassi
5 Minute Blueberry Chia Lassi

In the cooler months, I forgo my usual morning smoothie for a hot breakfast. On most days a big bowl of steaming porridge does wonders for my soul. Some other days I'll fry an egg with some sautéed mushrooms and greens and eat it with a sprinkling of dukkah. On days...

Savoury Granola
Savoury Granola

When I was in primary school which was over 30 years ago, times were simpler. In India where I grew up, packaged food was non existent. Sliced bread had created much excitement amongst the community but besides that there wasn't a lot available in terms of cereal and...

Did you know that pineapple fruitcake was flown on Apollo 11 into space and back to earth and that very slice now sits at the Smithsonian, probably in a glass case? If I was on that mission, I don't think any slice would have made it back to earth. Especially if it...

Avocado Smoothie With Watercress And Lime
Avocado Smoothie With Watercress And Lime

I usually buy a big punnet of watercress from the veggie stall at the markets on Thursday, especially when I have a big weekend of entertaining planned. It is a great salad filler. But if it doesn't get tossed through a salad, it will sit on my fridge shelf...

Vegan Scrambled Spice Eggs (Tofu And Turmeric Scramble)

A lot has happened in the chicken coop in the past two years. We first brought home three Isa Brown hens in late 2011 - Mario, Luigi and Yoshi. A year later we added the majestic black Australorp Toad to the family. Then in 2014, we lost Mario, Yoshi and Toad...

Coffee Gingerbread Granola
Coffee Gingerbread Granola

One of the things I love about living in Australia is the fact that we celebrate Christmas in July like our friends in New Zealand and South Africa. July is the middle of winter and the coldest month of the year because we all know that seasons are opposite in the...
