A delicious quick-to-make breakfast of sweet French Toast baked in a tray and served laden with fresh berries, whipped cream and a tart tangy yuzu (citrus) curd will make your weekend mornings with the family even more special. I love the novelty and fanfare of...

Loaded Fish Tacos With Ceviche Salsa And Roast Corn

On most days I am cooking up a storm for work and for leisure because I absolutely love to cook. Then there are days when long writing sessions and multiple soccer trainings leave me with no time or inclination to cook from scratch. Like everyone else who is juggling...

Rivs Makes A Homemade Cheeseburger For Food Revolution Day 2014

  Kids are stronger and more capable than we give them credit for.  With guidance and repetition, their little minds and eager hands can build Rome - even though it might not be in a day. As parents, one of our fundamental task is to nurture and nourish our...

Milk Chocolate Popcorn With Sprinkles
Milk Chocolate Popcorn With Sprinkles

  When I was growing up, we only had popcorn at the movies. Twice, maybe thrice a year. Life was simple. Yet, that was enough to fuse a strand of thought in my head. One that connected popcorn with movies. One that compels me to make a batch of popcorn when we...

The Valentine Smoothie And Healthy Smoothie 101

I have an addiction. I feed it at eight o'clock every morning. Long before I feed it, I am thinking about it. Wondering how it will make me feel. Today, I fed it as usual. My addiction. It made me feel voracious and larger than life. It felt indulgent and smooth and...

Beetroot And Cacao Nib Smoothie And The Weekend In Pictures

  How was your weekend? I spent an afternoon with the boys at the park, sitting under a tree thinking and watching them play. We had just come back from the vintage book fair with nearly 50 books and I read one sitting on that park bench for nearly an hour. It...

Sweet Butter Flatbread Rolls

Food is all about the taste. Some people will tell you that. While others might contest that food is about life, about health, about vitality. Food might be all that, but to me it is all about memories. From past to present to the ones we are yet to make. Just like...

Green Tea And Oat Smoothie
Green Tea And Oat Smoothie

  For the past few days I have been having this beautiful green tea and oat smoothie for breakfast. I have a Vitamix blender visiting me for a couple of weeks and I have been enjoying his (yes, all my kitchen helpers are big strapping males. I don't have a fetish...

Cashew Nut Smoothie With Blueberries And Mango
Cashew Nut Smoothie With Blueberries And Mango

Sometimes mangoes go the way bananas do, in profoundly ripe land. Although there is no tradition of mango bread (something that needs to be addressed!), there are ways to salvage an over ripe mango besides feeding it to your chickens (which drives them a little...
