Snapshot 2 (3-2-2016 8-31 AM)

25 years ago, a bowl of noodle soup in Thailand was about 3 Baht ($0.10). In that bowl, there were soft noodle, super tender pieces of meat and bean sprouts swimming in delicious boiling broth. There were also fresh basil, a little coriander leaves and some chopped scallions on top which purled aromatic fragrances through

Steamed Pumpkin with Coconut and Sugar

Winter is slowly blowing away from the city. At night the hot air already sneaks in to our bedrooms. We need to crank up the fan to sleep now. I put my winter clothes away and tug the thick blankets in a storage under my bed. I never like summer. It makes me feel tired

I stopped counting how many days since we started this blog. It has been a long journey, and it feels like a part of the routine. Although this is a digital part of our life, it means a lot to us. This blog helps us grow in so many aspects, but most importantly, it keeps

Beetroot Noodle

I love good food, and moreover, I appreciate good ingredients. I think cooking takes your relationship with food to another level. We normally eat out twice a week, and we order take away about three times a week. But lately, I have been cooking at home more, and I promise it has nothing to do

Sadik and I plated pumpkin seeds in the pots 3 weeks ago. They sprouted very quickly and now the tiny plants have thick luscious green leaves.

Banana is my favorite fruit ever! I love the soft texture of it that reminds me of baby food. I know it’s weird, but I always think baby food is so yummy. Previously, when I think of breakfast, I always go with eggs. There’re tons of ways you can have eggs for breakfast. But lately,

Eating Seasonally and Locally is My Thing

Eating seasonally and Locally

In the peak of monsoon season in India, the local markets all over the country seem to be flourished with fresh produce. This is a season you will find the purplish tart berries like Jamoon. Fresh herbs like mint and coriander seem to be more fragrant than usual. The mango season has faded, and I’ve

Have you ever had so much food you’re so full you couldn’t breathe? I think we all have been there at some point in our lives. For me, this happens a lot. It’s very hard for me to stop eating when I love the food. The hardest thing to handle must be the buffet. It’s
