So, I made this tart and ate it for breakfast. Not really. I am just kidding. We ate for dinner. Farmer’s markets are full of fresh vegetables and fruits. I don’t get chance to go to Union Square market, but Jersey city also has a small market compared to NY markets. Every time, I pass by farmers market, I want to stop and buy. Everything that I see attracts me. Few days ago when I saw these fresh tiny strawberries, I immediately bought two pints of them. I have learnt that tiny the fruit the better it is.

I am back to blogging. I feel like I take too many breaks from blogging. But, I am truly cooking and baking but just not able to share all the good things on the blog. In between I took vacation and we went to Africa. Continue reading “Fennel and Mango Salad”
So, did you enjoy the last post. You will enjoy this one more. As I take you around Udaipur through my pictures and show you what we ate, what we shopped and where we danced out.
We spotted this old gentleman asking people if they wanted a ride. Although, we didn’t take the ride; we took his pictures with his permission of course.
He happily posed for a pic.
Again we started our day by this street side stall selling one of the best samosas that we had during our trip. They were piping hot and prepared freshly everyday. We ate there straight two days. Now, I really miss those hot and spicy samosas. They were the best. If you ever end up going to Udaipur you have to try this place, cannot remember the name but it is on the right hand side of street while going to City Palace next to a shop that sells unique local souvenirs. I was so busy enjoying the brekkie that forgot to take pictures of everything we ate but we did capture some pictures from our breakfast. Continue reading “Udaipur (part two)”
This post was due since I returned back from my trip to India. We ended up taking so many pictures, that sorting them out was a big task in itself. Finally, I am done sorting out the best to share with you all. We try to visit our family at least every two years. Most of our family members live in India- my family as well my husband’s family. There are never enough days to visit all of them in one trip , but we try to make most of it. And, we also have to make sure that we get to go out and eat all the foods that we grew up eating. My husband and I make a big list of places that we want to eat and things we wanna do while on the flight to India; mind you it takes almost 24 hours journey to travel to Asia. We go through two breakfasts, two dinners, one lunch and many snacks by the time we land in India. I am not trying to scare you if you ever plan to visit India or any other countries in Asia. But, that’s how long it takes.
This year’s visit was special. As I was going to see my niece for the first time who was almost turning one in few days . Yes, I was planning to go on this trip since so many months. My sister had her after 11 years of their marriage. She is such a blessing to our family. We also had my husband’s cousin getting married and it had been long since we had attended an Indian wedding. So, we were more than excited for the trip.During the trip, at times we got so busy that I do not have pictures to share of everything that we did. But, I do have many pictures from our trip to Udaipur. In two weeks we traveled to so many places and one of them was to Udaipur city as it was closest and some of my family members had not been there. We wanted some family time together.

Do you love pound cakes? Then you will definitely love this coconut flavored pound cake. It is moist, full of coconut and buttery delicious. When I saw this recipe by a fellow blogger , I was immediately drawn to try it out myself. One because I love pound cakes and secondly, my husband loves anything with coconut. So, I had to try it for myself. Continue reading “Coconut pound cake”
