Hakka Noodles – Vegetable Hakka Noodles

Hakka Noodles – Vegetable Hakka Noodles


Noodles, fried rice, pasta; these are something that are perfect for weeknight dinners and in our family, they come under the comfort food category. If going Indian, my family would call Thayir saadham (yogurt and rice) or Ven Pongal, the comfort food. But when cooking something other than Indian, the first choice for my kids would be pasta.

Broccoli Fried Rice

Broccoli Fried Rice

I love to order Chinese take-outs and one of my favorite things about it is the broccoli. I just love the vibrant green, crunchy broccoli and it is something we all fight to eat. I usually end up loading up my fried rice with different vegetables and hence broccoli takes a back seat. So this time, I decided to make exclusive broccoli fried rice.

Creamy Pesto Baked Pasta – Baked Pasta with Pesto and Cherry Tomatoes



This is the 4th week of the blogging Mega Marathon and I have chosen to do Entrees all this week. The recipes I chose are something we like to eat as a family. More than being a fancy entrée, the recipes I am making are comfort food that you would want to snuggle up in the living room with your kids and eat while watching a movie.

Gai Mei Bao – Chinese Cocktail Buns – Chinese Coconut Buns

This is yet another lovely bake that I had my eyes on ever since these two lovely girls, Priya Srinivasan and Priya Suresh baked it for the We Knead to bake group. I was out of the group for a while and hence I could not bake with them, but I was so glad I stumbled into the recipe.

Zucchini Bread with Walnut Crumble Topping – Egg less Zucchini Bread

Zucchini Bread with Walnut Crumble Topping – Egg less Zucchini Bread

I have no idea why I have never baked zucchini bread before. It would be an understatement, if I sad that this was one of the moistest quick breads I have baked. It was just wonderful bread and it needs no words beyond this.
