An Easy Family Day Frittata

Happy valentine's day everyone! I hope you all have a wonderful time with the people that you love. Yesterday was Family day in BC. People had a day off work and schools were closed. This holiday is observed to encourage people to spend time with their families and appreciate the importance of family values. Since cooking is one of the ways I can show my love for my family I made this frittata for the perfect start to our day. Frittata is one of those "throw together' baked egg dishes that is high in protein, low carb and packed full of veggie nutrients. You can eat it for breakfast, lunch or dinner. And if you bake it in a muffin pan its perfect for packing up a healthy snack or on the go breakfast. The best part is it's super easy to make and so satisfying. Continue Reading

Vanilla Bean Crème Brulee

Since its February and love is in the air, I am sharing a recipe that is insanely delicious and perfect for Valentine's day. It's a Creme Brulee, a timeless classic consisting of a rich custard base topped with contrasting layer of hard caramel. The custard in this dessert has the advantage of being made ahead, then right before serving the top is caramelized using a kitchen blow torch (or alternately under broiler). It’s a perfect dessert for any special occasion, especially a romantic evening at home. Happy Indulging! Continue Reading

Sicilian Cookies with egg free and sugar free option

On my recent trip to Italy I had a chance to eat a bunch of gluten free cookies. I particularly fell in love with the Sicilian cookies. They were crisp on the outside and dense and chewy on the inside. So of course, I had to come home and try to recreate it. I searched online and developed my recipe based on this and this. These cookies are naturally gluten-free, dairy-free and so delicious. I also experimented with egg and sugar free cookies, just in case someone with different dietary restrictions needed to try them. The result was soft with a texture of cake. Continue Reading

Quick and Easy Savory French Toast

I didn’t know people ate French toast sweet until I moved to Canada. I grew up eating it savory and we just called it French toast. Yes it's true! When I tried to find out about its history, I was fascinated by the fact that French toast is not really French. In fact it goes back to Medieval times, long before France was even founded. The first recorded reference of dipping stale bread in a milk/egg batter and then cooking it is in a cookbook from 4th century Rome where it was called Pan Dulcis. Later similar recipes were whipped all around the world. I couldn't find any information about how the savory version came up but it could possibly be invented by Indians because they are not really a fan of sweet breakfasts. Besides, bread and eggs being savory makes so much sense. Continue Reading

Lemony Lemon Cake

I think it's important for everyone to have a great, reliable, and a killer cake recipe that they can pull out when the need arises. There are always get-togethers, potlucks, and pool parties when you just want to bake a homemade cake that is both pleasing to the eye and to the palate. This one is mine and dare I say, it could be yours too. Bursting with bright lemon flavor, this cake's got a great softer crumb and tender moist texture. I added lemon juice and zest to the batter, which lightly infuse the cake with fresh lemon. Then, it is doused with a lemon syrup to further enhance the lemon flavor. Finally, the cake is decorated with lemon curd which adds an explosion of lemon flavor to every bite. Continue Reading
