pumpkin pasta

Pumpkin pasta recipe

This time I used pumpkin. Its a very simple recipe and can be done in a few minutes. This is also an interesting way to sneak in some pumpkin in your diet especially if you are a pumpkin hater. Many people I know hate pumpkin as they find it quite sweet for their taste. But in this recipe , you actually cant guess that there is pumpkin. Also cashews gives a nice creaminess to the pasta.


Vegetable brown rice patty – easy wholemeal ideas

My son often has stayback after school on certain days. So I need to pack an extra tiffin box on such days. He hardly gets 15 minutes for eating before the class begins. He eats very slowly and so I usually pack something which can be easily and quickly eaten. Generally I make stuffed parathas and roll it up for him. So for one of these stayback days, I made some wholemeal cutlets. This recipe involves rice and vegetables and made a quick and proper lunch for my son.


Instant rice flour vadais – Indian deep fried snacks

I made them during the tamil new year this year.I usually dont cook a elaborate meal nowdays. But the festivals are something special and serves as an perfect excuse to serve a grand meal. However due to the lack of time in my everyday schedule, I was not prepared to cook anything elaborate. So I had not soaked lentils to make the authentic medhu vadai. But I worked really fast that day and found ample time to make some payasam ( recipe of which I will be posting later) and instant vadais. I found the recipe for the vadaishere. It…


Pasta pizza bake – easy kids snack recipes

I usually make this kind of breakfasts or snacks during the school holidays. I also…


Toblerone candy shortbread recipes – easy kids recipes

The one week school holidays are almost coming to an end now. This week was the busiest and is still going to be more busy for the next few days. But I also enjoyed the time with my kids and tried spending the maximum time with them keeping them occupied with some activity or the other. And as usual, I tried to cook their favourite dishes too. I had seen this recipe in several blogs a couple of years ago. I had loved it and had wanted to try. But I could never do it as I buy chocolate rarely…


Cheesy broccoli bites /balls – Kids snack recipes

There was a time when I used to cook a lot reffering to cookbooks. But then recently, I never found time. I used to bring home a lot of cookcooks especially baking books from the library. I would even copy down a few recipes and never saw it again. I totally stopped bringing books and I stopped buying them too. But recently when we went to a nearby mall, there was a old books sale going on. It was quite surprising to see a lot of cookbooks by Indian authors. I found a book by Nita mehta which contained snack…

Eggless double chocolate whole wheat muffin recipe- Easy eggless baking recipes

We love the chocolate chip muffin available here at the supermarket and I always buy them as they are quite tempting. My kids love them too. I love the strong chocolate flavour in it and its moistness. I always wanted to make something like that at home. I found a vanilla chocolate chip muffin recipe here and made a couple of changes to make it into a chocolate muffin. It was quite delicious and quite similar to the muffin I buy at the stores. Though of course there was a slight change in the texture as I have used a…
