Eat Global…Greek Style

I am a fan of travel based food shows. With my newborn when I was homebound, I watched two to three such shows in a row. Felt like a globetrotter with no guilt of a couch potato. I am so glad for such shows which besides being informative teaches you how food connects people. In…

The Falafel Twist-er!!

A vegan delight offered from this part of the world that I absolutely love……. Falafel!!! This is the best way to describe falafels. And just like hummus, I like to add a twist to falafels. They can be made just for snacking, as starters, or be a part of salad bowls. Stuff them in sandwiches…

A Jhola(satchel) bag with mirror work, a colorful umbrella, junk jewelry, a few books in hand, a confident stride over…..the ‘potholes’ on the road to save her favorite pair of Kohlapuris(a particular style of sandals named after the place of its origin). Yes!! That’s your quintessential college or university going girl. Every girl who has…

It’s a Wrap!!

Well, I have been away for a long time. When viral fever got hold of me I had to take things slow.
