Maach er Chop - Bengali Style Fish Croquette and yes they are BAKED!



Past few  days had been cloudy and gloomy with busts of thunderstorm and flash flood warning! Now where did all the summer gorgeousness go???

A few more weeks of summer vacations is still left and the we are almost stranded indoors. In this weather all I want to do is cuddle up on the couch with a piping ho cup of tea and a book, but the 5 year old always has other plans!

Sweet Potato Oven Fries



We were having a general discussion on A Shared Meal regarding the health benefits of Sweet Potatoes. One thing let to the other and we started discussing my favorite sweet potato recipe - The utterly delicious Sweet Potatoes Oven Fries. That is when I realized that the recipe is not on the blog.

Thai Inspired Noodle Salad with Lemon Ginger Shrimps



After a cold soup, a cool drink, its a cold Salad's turn to beat the heat. 

The summer vacation are on and my lunches are no longer a leftover affair. It now needs the meticulous planning and attention that my dinner usually gets. With the temperature so high, I hardly have any inclination to cook anything. Cold soup and salads often come to the rescue. But with a five year old who wants pasta for lunch everyday, innovation is the only solution.

Summer Cooler 2: Strawberry - Pineapple Agua Fresca




Pinterest is overflowing with Agua Frescas. So much so, that I was finally tempted to try one, even though fruit juices are not exactly "my thing". 

Sid, like any other 5 year old, is a total sucker for fruit juice and punches. The summer vacations are on and in addition to the outdoor activities, we are spending a lot of time in the kitchen together. Between my steadily rising blood sugar and Sam's increasing paunch, we are trying to keep the cookies, cupcakes and brownies to a minimum. Agua Fresca seemed a relatively less guilty indulgence for the family.
