Granola Cluster

Granola Cluster

Couple of weeks ago,i had the opportunity to help with  Vacation Bible School at the church we are visiting.If you know about VBS, you know it means early start in the morning.So some of the day,i may have coffee before i leave and if not,i would grab a bag of homemade granola to munch on the way.So one of that day,as i was munching,my friend,Keri, who i was helping,noticed and said,”You know what  i like better then granola? granola cluster,easier to eat on the go,we are always on the go.” She had a good point. So as you are reading this post,we are most likely on our road trip to the beach,praying that it doesn’t rain.Isn’t that odd that all the time that we are at home,praying for rain to get us out from drought,it remains dry as it could be and make a plan for beach and there is tropical depression forming in a gulf.We will take rain here in Texas anyday,not complaining.*Ahem*. I thought of Granola cluster for our...

Brown Rice balls

Brown Rice balls

What can you do with leftover rice? I have filled them up in burrito, used them in casserole dishes,have thickend the soup with them.If it is plain,then of course,you are limited only by your imagination.Best,if you can’t think of anything at that moment,then freeze them until you can figure out(just don’t take eternity !). One thing i had not played with yet was  rice ball.Not a new concept.Italian has baked arancini, Brazilian have fried ‘Bolinhos de Arroz’, Japanese have assembled ‘Onigiri’..different filling,different method and not necessarily made with leftover rice…common theme is shape and yumminess. We made Brown Fried Rice couple of days ago and we had leftover..and yes you guessed,i wanted to try Yummy Rice Balls this time.

Frozen Fruit cups

Frozen Fruit cups

This past Saturday,I watched Pioneer Woman making frozen fruit cups for her kids.More then being healthy,those little frozen cups of fruit looked so cute,I just couldn’t wait to make it. I would have preferred to use peaches like PW but I was pushing my overflowing,loaded grocery cart and two tired kids at the tail end of grocery shopping,which seemed  never ending to me, and literally grabbing what I could passing by the frozen fruit aisle.Easier to grab from the aisle is what made it to my recipe.Did I mention I do not like grocery shopping?Why?It takes too much time and at times I feel like I am running around the circle.Anyway,i will stop griping now,so you can read on what went to this yummy and healthy cup of goodness. PrintFrozen Fruit cups Ingredients1 (20Oz) can pineapple crushed 1 (29Oz) can mandarin oranges 1/2 of (14 Oz) pack of frozen fruit mix (mango,papaya,Strawberry) 1 (14 Oz) frozen tropical blend(Peaches,Pineapple,Banana,Mango) 1 (15 Oz) pineapple juice concentrate 2 Tablespoon sugar Assembly Clear Plastic cups...

Aloo-Chop

Aloo-Chop

Aloo chop ….hmmm…I don’t know why ‘chop’ is attached to this dish name,only potential reasoning I can think of it,’this dish is so YUMMY,people tend to ‘chomp’ it down quickly.Silly you think..’Aloo’ is hindi for ‘potato’.Growing up,my mom made it for us as evening snack.It is also one of the favorite thing to entertain with  your visiting neighbors and friends.Yup,part of Indian hospitality. Well,my Indian food loving friend Stacey came over for playdate and our plan was to make baked Samosa that day,we both have been talking about for so long.So we did but it wasn’t the winner surprisingly. I had little bit of filling left from Samosa’s but not enough dough to go around.Then I noticed I had two slices of bread left.Perfect I thought.And ‘Aloo Chop‘ came to life,more than a decade later,I got the chance to make it.Funny thing is, we ended up  liking it more than Samosas.So when we had playdate again,’Aloo chop’ is what we agreed on.It is less labor intensive then Samosa and really yummy.Try...
