Thai Iced Tea

 Creamy, delicious, restaurant style Thai Iced Tea made in the comforts of your home in flat 15 minutes!! 

thai-iced-tea Do you always order Thai iced tea in Thai restaurants? I don’t know about you but for someone like me that’s a must. But lately I have been having kind of bad luck with Thai teas: overly sweetened, not that strong or too week tasting Thai teas have been greeting me lately in restaurants. For some time, I have been thinking of learning how to make this at home so I can have it anytime I want! No waiting for Thai restaurant trip to get Thai Iced tea.

Finally I have found the right kind of thai tea mix and it tastes just like my favorite restaurant version. I am telling you, this is the one! Panthai Thai Tea Mix gives you the exact same kind of delicious Thai Tea you are used to getting in restaurants but much cheaper and at any time you get the craving. [click to continue…]


“Triple Fun” Chocolate Bars

Loaded chocolate and coconut bars stuffed with crispy toasted almonds. Perfect treat for any time of the day!

chocolate-coconut-bars These bars. I can’t even talk about these without stuffing myself with one of these. These are perfect breakfast bars to be eaten with a cup of black coffee. If you know me by now, you know how much I love coffee. So I am always on the lookout for snacks or goodies to go with my coffee. This chocolaty coconut almond bars are perfect coffee accompaniments. But worry not! These taste equally good without coffee too. Don’t worry you coffee and tea haters! You will love these no matter what, coffee or no coffee!

Asparagus & Green Pea Salad “Grilled Cheese”

Asaparagus – green pea salad stuffed in french bread with fontina cheese to make it the most amazing grilled cheese sandwich of all times!

asparagus-pea-grilled-cheese  This grilled cheese!

I absolutely love grilled cheese sandwiches and over and over, I find myself creating the same kinds with cheese, chips and lots of my favorite hot sauce. I must tell you that nowhere this old favorite of mine is a common grilled cheese. It deserves it’s own post one day.someday.may be soon!

This current favorite of mine on the other hand is equally good though I won’t lie I still have soft spot for those just cheese based grilled cheese sandwiches. While in NY, we grabbed lunch from a sandwich shop and I felt that all those long walks in NY deserved a hearty grilled cheese sandwich for lunch. So I settled for an asparagus and green pea salad grilled cheese. It sounded intriguing and I had to get it. You know, try it and if I like it recreate it for this space so you guys can have it as well. Best part of this job  if I say so! [click to continue…]


Sweet Potato Waffles with Strawberry-Vodka Sauce

Super moist and spongy sweet potato waffles served with warm strawberry-vodka syrup! I am sure you will be making these again and again!

sweet-potato-waffles I am one of those people who enjoys their breakfast. When in school , I remember never being much of a breakfast person. But after college things were different. I would find myself craving breakfast first thing in the morning and after getting married and changing my career, I literally think of what I  am going to be eating next morning for breakfast almost every night. Is it too weird? I don’t think so. And if you are like me who starts planning for breakfast 12 hours ahead, then these waffles can easily make to your breakfast table during weekdays but if you don’t believe in thinking about breakfast way in advance , don’t worry. You can still enjoy these delicious moist & spongy waffles for a weekend brunch or if you have good 1 hour to kill before getting ready in the morning, then these have your name written all over them!

Spicy Cajun Cauliflower Steak

Crispy Cajun spiced baked cauliflower “steaks”. Serve them as a side or as a meal! {GF + DF + VEGAN + VEGETARIAN}

cajun-cauliflower-steaks When it comes to food choices, we both have our own differences. I love anything full of veggies, sight of veggie packed meal makes me all happy while on the other hand, for him a meal with tons of veggie is not a meal but a salad and in his world, salad is not counted as a meal! Men, I tell you! So after our NY trip back home, I found myself with an empty refrigerator and almost clueless what to eat for lunch. [click to continue…]
