Here is a recipe inspired by the Hakka noodles I had from street vendors back in Assam. It is filled with vegetables and is a sure shot winner in my family.

Basics of styling desserts

Desserts are a special part of my life;  I love styling as much as eating desserts. There are so many subcategories, such as frozen, baked, traditional, etc. Clubbing all the desserts under one heading and treating them the same way is probably not the best way to deal with this topic.

Three-ingredient healthy PB cookies

When you need some cookies and need them real quick, three-ingredient PB cookies are the answer. I tried to make them healthy with coconut sugar, which is gluten-free. I and kiddo made them during a break while online school was happening. We had fun as it was so simple and easy to make. 

Pumpkin and lentil soup

I am partly glad that the winter is short in this part of the world, as my list of cravings for comfort food is endless during winter. I am also happy I crave soups and dal during winter. They are light and keep me full when paired with some bread. Pumpkin and lentil are a great combination. It tastes delicious as a soup with the right amount of heat and spices. 

Lemon crepes with berries

The weather is so beautiful right now that I look forward to those mornings when we can enjoy our breakfast on the balcony, soaking in as much sun, relishing on the soft crepes, and sipping on coffee. Delicate crepes with the hint of lemon paired with blueberries make for a brilliant breakfast.

Orange/Clementine yogurt pancakes

Well, I have always loved citrus flavors in my desserts and breakfast. Oranges and clementines evoke tons of childhood memories, especially during winters. I love the taste and aroma of these fruits. Like me, you will love these mildly sweet and aromatic orange/clementine yogurt pancakes. 

Peppermint candy cane cupcakes

There is no better way to celebrate Christmas than sharing good food. These peppermint cupcakes were the perfect treats for a bunch of hard-working employees at a supermarket who are my little one’s pals. My son looks forward to meeting them, and they always bring a smile to his face.
