Strawberry Tart

DSC_3090 edit

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.

IMG_6270I can’t believe it’s already August. I can’t see summer going away slowly. I know still there is time to fall and winter. But, I kind of want to stay back and enjoy  summer more.

I am sometimes jealous of people who get to celebrate Thanksgiving. Because it is something that I have not grown up celebrating, I miss all those Indian festivals we grew up celebrating. But, I am slowly coming to terms to celebrate what I have here to celebrate. But, I love how people around me get so busy when Thanksgiving is approaching. They are waiting for the day and prepping fully for it. There is happy happy atmosphere all over the place and I know those who have their family members, get to spend good time with them.

Soon, I have to start following this tradition with my vegetarian thanksgiving to get in the mood of holidays. While we enjoy taking road trips or spend time buying all the sale stuff online during thanksgiving holidays, it is also time to enjoy the food that American’s make for thanksgiving. If I am vegetarian so what, we can enjoy the dessert if not turkey. Because life is too Short not to enjoy the dessert. So this year I thought I would make a pecan pie , got a reason to get in the mood of Thanksgiving. So, here’s my easy delicious Pecan Pie recipe. Continue reading “Pecan Pie”

Hannah of Rise and Shine was our October 2013 Daring Bakers’ hostess and she challenged us to bake our own double crusted savory pot pies. Using any from-scratch crust and filling we choose, we were allowed to get completely creative with our recipe, showing off the savory flavors and fillings from our own home or region.

So, finally its Autumn in USA. Frankly, I just hate winters here because I want the sun to be up till late and we get to go outdoors. But, the moment Autumn is here I start loving everything. Those cold mornings, when you don’t want to get up from bed and just cuddle your pooch. I don’t have a dog. I so desperately want one. In this type of weather you want to have a hot chocolate or nice hot chai with ginger. But, in reality I have to rush early morning for me to catch a train.  Continue reading “Daring Bakers – Savory Pot Pies”
