India is known for rich vegetarian dishes. Millions of Indians are vegetarian and they are not being deprived of food, delicious food. Although I am not a vegetarian, during holy festivals and whenever  I have health problems, I opt for vegetarian dishes. Last week, for several days, I was on vegetarian diet. One of the veg dishes I prepared was the mushroom and potato curry. One thing that I like using mushroom in my vegetarian dish is that mushroom substitutes for meat that you will not miss...

I have been a great fan of Jaime Oliver, a chef, a TV personality, and a food revolutionist for school. I always watch his show in Travel and Living and have tried many of his recipes which are always a success. My favorite was his recipe of oven-roasted whole chicken with veggies. Oliver had been an advocate of changing the food in school. In most studies, US students eat lunches that are high on fat. Jaime Oliver is changing that through his TV show, Food Revolution. Although in some school districts,...

Summer has officially start with sizzling heat. So, what’s the best way to beat the heat other than staying at the comfort of the air-conditioned room? Right, the cold shake of your favorite flavor. One of the best things about shake drinks is that you can invent and experiment with the flavor. Another is just to enjoy the classic flavors such as the usual milk shake, fruit shake, vanilla ice-cream shake, and yeah, I’m going to share my recipe for this heat-buster vanilla choco ice-cream...

I got this mini pizza base in the French Loaf last time I went there and since I love pizza, I thought of making really beautiful mini pizza.  I don’t have this big oven, just a small one, but it is enough for baking pizza.

I decided to make assorted toppings mini pizza. Ingredients: 12 pieces...

The frozen basa fish fillet I bought from Mathsya Mela was made into a very beautiful, delicious, and very healthy dishes. The first dish I made of was pan-fried fish with mashed potato and coleslaw, and the recipe of that dish I shared in my previous post. After few days, I cooked the remaining fish, I cooked it the same way I did in the other dish but this time, I paired it with spaghetti pasta tossed in olive oil with coriander leaves.  It was superb!

UPDATE: A Disappointment from French Loaf 02/26/2011 While passing by HSR Layout the other day, I saw that a new branch of The French Loaf has opened. I stopped my car and decided to give myself some treats and also to see what they offer. When I entered, I saw that there where several tables where customers can sit and enjoy their goodies but I preferred to indulge mine at home. I ordered few of the pastries which my eyes approved. This has become my instant favorite. The French Loaf plain roacher...

What is a carnival or a festival without cotton candy? This pink cotton-like sweet that is made of sugar, poured on a twirling machine to produce a very soft cloud-like web, and circled around a piece of stick to form a big pillow-like shape, has been an all time favorite not only by kids but also by kids at heart. I, myself, is a big fan of cotton candy, and every time I see someone walking holding a stick of this pink cloud candy, I would search where it come from or if I could not locate that...
