Samosa Inspired Savoury Veggie Cakelettes

Samosa Inspired Savoury Veggie Cakelettes

I think for me the sign of a good cook is someone who is able to breathe life into leftovers or turn scraps into something marvellous. I am enamoured by cooks like my mom, who, (after six decades of cooking) constantly attempt to reinvent food and transform leftovers into delicious creations.

Carrot Ribbon Salad

Carrot Ribbon Salad

In another life, I must have been a professional picnic-er. Perhaps in a mediterranean locale? Wishful thinking on my part. My rationale: I am obsessive about al fresco dining.

This Carrot Ribbon Salad is perfect alfresco-esque fare (even if it is indoors) because the dressing melds perfectly with airy strands of carrots.

Winter Confusion with Cumin Coleslaw

Winter Confusion with Cumin Coleslaw

Since it’s the first day of 2015, it was only fitting this coleslaw got things rolling. Why? Well, for many people, cabbage is synonymous with detoxification and weight balance. It supposedly cleanses the liver. Trying to not be overly presumptious, but there is usually a lot of cleansing, fasting, and overall weight management stuff going on in January.

Double Dipped Fried Green Tomatoes

Double Dipped Fried Green Tomatoes

I enjoy eating fried food items from time to time (who doesn’t?). I especially like thinking of new foods to fry. These Double Dipped Fried Green Tomatoes have been floating around my head since I watched the movie, Fried Green Tomatoes, years ago.

Avocado & Daikon Salad with Raai Strawberry Dressing

Avocado & Daikon Salad with Raai Strawberry Dressing

Let’s take a little trip down memory lane, shall we? Today’s memory is gardening. It was prompted by the view from my bedroom window. This year’s garden is on its last legs. It happens every year – the sunlight grows a little less warm, leaves and vines become wilted and turn brownish.

This change in the seasons reminds me of how the whole process started. It jogs memories from the past and how early spring meant getting up extremely early (too early for a little kid to be up) and planting. Dad was the gardener in the family. My mom assisted here and there, but Dad was the one diligent about remembering to water and weed.
