Who doesn’t love eggs? Most of of us, as they are nutritious and also quick to prepare. I started eating eggs when I was almost in 3-4 grade. There is a reason I hadn’t tried eggs until. My mom is a strict vegetarian. Eggs were not even allowed in our house. But, there was a time when due to political reasons my dad had to stay in a secured place and that was his company guest house (sounds like a perfect bollywood movie). We had cops sitting outside our house to protect us. That’s when we would visit my dad because he could hardly come home to see us and we  would stay overnight with him on weekends and by the time Monday came  we would be back to home as schools can’t be missed. That’s when we got to eat omelettes that the chefs prepared for his breakfast. So, we got addicted to having omelettes. But, even today we have never prepared one at my mom’s home.

The rebel in me at that time, I started bringing once in a while eggs into the house for various purposes like using it as face mask or baking into cakes even though my mom didn’t like it.  Continue reading “French Souffle Omlette”

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”
