I don’t always choose to make things as “easy as apple pie.” Part of me likes to bend and twist things so I can feel like it’s my own. Simplicity is nice and all, but I love the intricacies you can unveil within the minimal space. That’s how I ended up with this Jaggery Ginger Open Apple Pie.
This is one of those brownies that gives you the perfect excuse to eat it for breakfast given its caffeine kick. Gooey, with a cracked top, this recipe is sure to please.
Any recipe that starts with butter, sugar, and cream is usually a dietary turn-off, but, believe me, these Cranberry Chocolate Carmelitas with Vanilla Rose Caramel are worth the extra mile run or Zumba class.
This Smoky Garlic Hummus is something you can put on burgers, dunk veggies into, or straight up eat plain out of the bowl!
Parippu payasam is another version full of delicious flavor. It’s made using green gram (moong dal) and sabudana (tapioca pearls) with ghee-roasted coconut, raisins, and cashews then stewed in jaggery and coconut milk.
For those nights when you want some authentic tasting South Indian food, but you don’t feel like adding in a ton of ingredients, this Kerala Chicken Fry (Ularthiyathu) is perfect.
This White Chocolate Coconut Cheesecake w/ Matcha Pista Cookie Crust has some of my favorite ingredients. It’s creamy, but not overly sweet and offers some tanginess from the lime, and some earthiness from the pistachios and matcha.
