Strawberry Bread, a whole-wheat, low-fat, vegan bread

Strawberry Bread

Spring is almost synonymous with rich, red strawberries bursting with tart-sweet flavor and more goodness than anything so delicious oughta have. Desi, who loves berries, is always coming home with armfuls of them, and although neither he nor Jay can get enough of them, there are always more to use up before they go bad. That’s…

Pizza for breakfast– now how decadent is that? But when it’s my Peach Streusel Breakfast Pizza, loaded with sweet peaches and healthy oats, you can have your slice and eat it too. I was trying to come up with a kid-friendly breakfast recipe for Jay who, by now, loves pancakes and waffles for breakfast but…

Orange Sweet Potato Pancakes

Orange Sweet Potato Wholegrain Pancakes

It’s Sunday morning, you’re snowed in (still!), you couldn’t go for that morning jog, and you are desperately in need of some my-body-is-a-temple food. Except you want it to be really decadent because it’s your day off, for heaven’s sake, and you need some pampering before you are driven to something desperate by all that snow piling up…

But these are not just delicious and cake-like, they are also whole grain and low fat. Which makes them perfect breakfast eats for the young, the old, and everyone in between. There’s just something about this season that calls for…

Date and Lime Muffins

Date and Lime Muffins

I have been a bit of a tyrant with the sweets around our house, mainly because I am trying to keep Desi’s too-sweet tooth in check. So this weekend, to make him happy, I baked up these Date and Lime Muffins. What I didn’t tell him — and he didn’t guess — is that they have…

Molette

Mexican Molletes with Mango-Basil Salsa

One of my favorite places in Mexico is the charming town of Morelia where we once spent a few days doing almost nothing. Nothing, except taking lazy strolls on streets dotted with devout Mexicans and students. Morelia is packed with beautiful churches and colleges, and if you’re not inclined to one or attending the other, the only thing…

Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal

Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal

Sundays in our home can feel rather busy. There are calls to be made to India, a dog to walk, errands to run, a house to clean, and food to cook. Sometimes, when it feels like the time is getting away from me and I cannot handle one more thing to do, I whip up this…

Sweet Potato Muffin Squares

Whole Wheat Sweet Potato Squares with Peanut Butter Glaze

Spring is finally here and if you need confirmation (which you might if you live here in the DC area where there’s still a bite in the air) you only have to look at the deep pink magnolia blossoms blanketing tree limbs that were bare only yesterday. This is my favorite time of year, not…

Healthy Chia Waffles

Our Saturday mornings begin, like most mornings, with a walk for Opie. But because we have more time on our hands, we treat him to an outing in the woods, or at one of the trails nearby where he can walk unfettered and meet other dogs — his favorite thing to do. Because Opie has…

Applesauce Sandwich Bread

This past weekend just whizzed by in a happy blur of food, fun and friends. On Saturday, it was brunch at my friend Roshani’s. Her parents  are visiting from Houston and her mom, Pratima Kothari, had cooked up a huge feast for us.  I even got a quick lesson in rolling Khandvi, one of my…

Vegan breakfast recipes, including pancakes, waffles, French toast and muffins

Healthy Stuffed French Toast

A brand new year is like a chance to start fresh, isn’t it? I know it’s just a day like any other, but there is just something about the arrival of January that shakes awake the slumbering optimist in me  and sets me looking forward to a year that will be even better than the…

Mango Waffles, vegan and gluten-free

Mango Waffles, Gluten-Free

Here’s a decadent weekend-morning recipe that will not hug your waistline for eternity: gluten-free Mango Waffles. When I make gluten-free baked goods, I stay away from those readymade flour mixes that tend to make the end product gummy. Mixes, in my opinion, also have a rather strong flavor that doesn’t always work with baked goods…

Vanilla Bread

Whole Wheat Vanilla Bread

One morning in Bombay, Desi, on an errand to pick up some bread for breakfast, came home with two little balls of fur, one yellow and the other red. You can expect to find just about anything for sale on the streets of Bombay and that morning Desi had come across a man selling tiny…
