Oven Baked Ricotta Cheese Kalakand / Milk Cake

One of the popular posts of my blog is Microwave Ricotta Cheese Kalakand. For my kiddo, these days I make it in the oven. You might ask why? My little one loves baking with Mommy. 
The new oven baked Ricotta Kalakand (Milk Cake) Recipe is even better, it has double the cheese, less sugar and tastes yummy. And, if ricotta is not available, paneer is an excellent alternative.

Aloo Methi Masala

After eating take out for about a week, I am ready to cook and blog again. How about some simple Roti Sabzi? You guys know how I like to include greens in our everyday diet. Today's special is fresh Methi leaves. Of all leafy greens, I love Methi. If you do too, try this North Indian style Aloo Methi Masala.

Egg-less Apple Sauce Cake

Hey everyone! Hope all is well. 
Just when I got used to the Miami weather, we had to move. So, now we are back in Dallas. I am hoping to stay in this new place for a long long time. In all this hustle bustle of settling in a new habitat, my 3 year old demands to bake a cake all by herself. Also, it has to be round like a birthday cake.
Here I present the first ever bake from our new kitchen. A soft, moist cardamom flavored egg less apple sauce cake. 

Spinach Pasta

Its been around 6 months now in Miami. I am really enjoying the sunny weather here. My kiddo especially loves her park time. I am missing the beautiful fall colors of Michigan though. Anyways, lets talk about food now.
These days I have been trying to include more leafy greens in our diet.
Jowar Methi Thepla, Palak Paneer Paratha, Kale White Bean Soup and today's Spinach Pasta are our family favorites. If you are looking for some healthy delicious recipes, try these and let me know.

When it comes to diet and exercise, different strategies work for different people. Some work out more, some can control their cravings, some prefer low fat dairy, some cut down desserts and so on.

Hello Texas!

Life has taken me to different places. I don't do well with change initially, but then the town grows on me. Few years ago, we came to the snowy, cold Midwest. Call me crazy, but I like snow. I especially love to see every year's first snowfall.
