This is a neat way of making those calories count at breakfast. With two kids about to head into teenagery – one recently just got there – (and little DNA assistance for them to gain some altitude), I try to pack as much protein into their meals as I can! (more…)
Many years ago, in a tropical paradise far away, a little girl grew up in a jasmine-fringed house with orchids, mango trees, papaya trees, banana and coconut palms, jackfruit, soursop, tomato vines and a curry plant. She watched as her Gran cooked and baked in a fragrant kitchen full of chatty female relatives, and, clutching onto her sari, tagged along as she distributed freshly made treats to the neighbors. The girl took a bite of her favorite cookie - a sooji biscuit, powder-crumbly and melt-in-the-mouth buttery - and fell in love with food.
That was me, and I have been cooking since I was ten. Having lived in Malaysia, Singapore, London, Toronto and now, the US East Coast (along the way marrying my British-Jewish sweetheart from Bloomberg), I started this blog in the hope of passing on to our two kids our favorite family recipes from a combined rich cultural heritage, and inspiration picked up from our family's sojourn on three continents.
