Avocado Nanaicecream

Happy Thursday friends! How are you all doing? This week has been quite warm for us and it is a delight to see all the plants and trees soak up the light and grow with it. While on the topic of being warm, what would compliment this weather better than some cold ice cream. What say? Presenting to you, our avocado and nanaicecream! This is a blend of my two favorite and power packed ingredients, avocado and banana. Both of them are so rich in potassium and many other nutrients. This recipe is a great way to include these two superfoods in your regular diet. You can also add more fruits as toppings depending on your choice. For this, I added a bunch of berries including blueberries, cherries and goji berries.

Well without further ado, go ahead and checkout our recipe and let us …

Happy Friday dear friends! How has your week been? I have had a great time the past two weeks traveling and doing fun activities with my parents.

Strawberry picking at Delange’s Redberry farm is a great way to engage with ur local community, gain access to fresh strawberries that are sweet, juicy and amazing. Great way for family to hang out together perfect weekend activity. [/caption]Here are some of the pictures from our picking … mom & dad thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience! Fruit picking is not a common activity in India and this was a completely new experience for them. Well, end of the day we had a ton of strawberries at home and it was time to whip up something using these juicy fruits. Strawberry being a versatile fruit can be added to so many dishes and it doesn’t have to be desserts only. Here’s a salad that I made using these strawberries. Inspired by Panera bread’s  premium signature summer salad. I just love salads …

Thursday is here again! Hope you are all gearing up for a a fantastic July 4th weekend. The weather gods have been kind on us and we are going to have beautiful weather this weekend so I am super excited to do lots of outdoor activities. While on the topic of celebration, here is a dish you could make and serve at your July 4th parties as finishing meal apart from all the grilling (have you tried our Grilled Chicken Legs )that you have planned. It is an Indian dish called ‘Egg pulusu’ my mom often makes and we all love it at home. Now that my mom is here visiting us, I am having the best food at home everyday.  Also, we have had increasing demand for Indian recipes off late so this is for all our followers! Egg pulusu as you must have already guessed is a dish made out of egg. ‘Pulusu’ is a telugu word essentially meaning curry using tamarind juice. It is simple with some mild spices and great to …
