A Princess for My Little Princess

Recipe: Vanilla Cake with Buttercream Frosting

Every other moment or event that passes by, keeps leaving me awestruck at how fast the time flies these days. It just seems yesterday that we were getting ourselves ready for our little darlings first day at preschool and it's already time for her to bid farewell to her first teacher and friends.
She loves her school and so do we as it's a pleasure to see what a swell time she's been having out there.....in fact she enjoys her school to the extent of hating weekends!!!!

Anyways, her lovely roller coaster ride is coming to an end by the end of this month and we have been preparing her for that for quite some time now.... I hate giving her nasty surprises. Well, I guess she's learning to adjust to the fact quite faster than I expected. And I feel that its we adults who can be real spoilsports, because I think its me who is being a little over emotional about her leaving play school :).

Something Fishy in my Dish!!!!

Recipe: Fish Cutlets
Cutlets are a fav at my home,irrespective of whatever the filling may be.
But somehow fish cutlets have always been found to have a slightly higher fan following with almost everyone I know :)
My mom makes some of the best cutlets I have ever tasted and I follow her recipe word for word.

A Coconutty Treat!!

Recipe: Coconut Macaroons
                          

I absolutely love coconut flavour and coconut flakes and anything with coconuts in them..... a typical Keralite trait I guess ;). So obviously, the moment I spotted this very very easy recipe on Ria’s Collection all I wanted was to get a platter of it right before me......and that was exactly what I did :).

A Meal in a Whiz, for one...

Recipe: Easy Chilly Paneer for one serving (Cottage Cheese-Green Pepper Stir Fry)

I simply detest eating alone. For almost 2 years after coming to Bahrain I had to go through the torture of lonely lunches ( I usually ate after feeding my little one and putting her to sleep and my husband always took packed lunch)
But the last 6 months had been different with my husband coming home for lunch as he had to drop our daughter back home after play school. :)

Some (Jack)- Fruitful Memories

Recipe: Chakka Ada (Steamed Jackfruit preserve-Rice dumplings)
 


This time of the year always comes with a lot of nostalgic childhood memories....the months of June, July and August. Well, these are the most awaited months for any child brought up in the middle east..... The time to break for the summer Holidays!!!!!! And that meant 2 long months of celebration in Kerala with all my cousins and relatives.

A Summer Soother

Summer is here and it seems to have crashed in with all its vigor and fury :(
Of course, Middle East is known for its scorching, dry summers but this year the heat has already soared up to 45 degree C and plus...........don't even want to imagine what July and August are going to be like!!
