Baked Kakarakaya ~ Bitter Gourd Chips

As the name suggests, bitter gourd is a bitter vegetable and is one of the most despised vegetable by many people. But I like it and do not mind the bitter taste of the vegetable. Baked bitter gourd chips has been on my to bake list for some time and finally got to bake them […]

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

For this week’s Cooking from Cookbook Challenge (CCC), I baked a recipe from Wall Street Journal. This is the last recipe I baked for the bake-a-thon, that I can use for CCC as well. This recipe calls for refrigerating the dough for up to 4 days. I baked a small batch of cookies to take […]

Broiled Spicy Shrimp

It is amazing how our food preferences change over a period of time. The food that you despised for almost 20 years of your early life suddenly becomes your favorite food. Back then if someone told me prawns/shrimp would one day become one of my favorite seafoods, I would have laughed. Back then I could […]

Baked Poha ~ Baked Atukulu ~ Savory Flattened Rice Cake

Couple of months ago when I saw baked poha recipe in Tarla Dalal’s email newsletter, I bookmarked the recipe, keeping this Bake-a-thon in mind. I was skeptical about the recipe but wanted to give it a try as I had some thick poha on hand and it is an easy recipe. To my surprise, it […]

Spicy Baby Back Ribs

For this bake-a-thon I baked/roasted lots of vegetables, meat and seafood. I already posted baked broccoli and I have two more vegetable bakes coming up in the next few days. Today it is pork baby back ribs. I like grilled meats, unlike husband who prefers curries. Second, baby back ribs have very little meat and […]

Morning Glory Muffins

Last spring when I visited one of my cousin’s I borrowed couple of cookbooks from her. The main reason for borrowing the books was Cooking from Cookbook Challenge, though I have not cooked much from these cookbooks yet. I bookmarked a few recipes but did not get time to cook or bake anything from those […]
