Healthy Sweet and Salty Cheese Cake

How amazing does it feel when your vision turns into fruition just the way you wanted?? I was really looking forward to this dessert to look just the way I was expecting. And you know what, there was hardly any hassle preparing this cheese cake!! Doesn’t that feel great? I really wanted to keep the salty component of the cheese cake, in my dessert, and I won’t hide the fact that I was little nervous with the possible result. But things did work and in a good way.. at least for Me..

I am saying this because My Mum just doesn’t want to agree to the fact that a dessert can taste little salty or tangy at times; for her a dessert can only taste Sweet otherwise how can that be a ‘dessert’! Like sugary sweet!! Is it with you as well? Or do you really think a blend of opposite tastes do work if chosen carefully?

But if given a logical thought, in the era of a tech driven world, where we are almost immovable without an interference of science in our lives, how come our edibles won’t have an aspect with technology??

Healthy Chicken Biryani

Biryani is my lustful repose, there was a time (which is long or very long back) when I used to have only and only biryani on Sundays. This is somewhere in the mid 90s, I was in primary school and online food app wasn’t in existence, & fine dining restaurants, well! whichever were there, they were out of reach for any middle-class family. But still, my father used to manage to get a box of biryani from a nearby and quite popular at that time, ‘Fast-Food’ joint.

Later, as my Biryani craving was growing like a whale, my mother took control and started preparing it in the house, in a lot simpler way of course. But that simpler biryani took over my life and my mum’s biryani is still the best for me.

Easy Mexican Rice

Call it Mexican or Spanish, I found this Tomato Rice recipe quite famous in both these countries. Now of-course there are different variations available to make this One Pot Rice. But as usually I always lean towards the easy and manageable-with-minimal -ingredients recipes. But before I tell you much about this recipe, let me tell you an interesting thing…

You see that chocolaty dollop of thing beside the rice? You know what it is? It’s a simpler version of sticky-honey chicken.. I know what you are thinking? There’s Mexican Rice at one side, and it’s being complemented with a Chinese dish? What’s wrong with me?

Book Review- A Season of Hope

Does life give any second chance? At what point? And does that make any sense then? Do we, as a human being even understand that we are getting another moment in our favour which we already had forgotten to expect? Emotion is quite an illusionist… Do you agree?
