Wheat Rava Idly - Godhuma Rava Idly

Vegetable Quesadilla

This is a recent favorite of my girls. We were watching some lunch box ideas in YouTube.  I had my girls with me while I was watching so that they can suggest their ideas for packing their lunch box. The deal is they have to finish the lunch fully without any leftovers.

Vegetable Stir Fry - Veggie filled Breakfast

Yup, this is what my husband eats during the weekdays for his breakfast. Initially I found it hard to cut the vegetables and saute it every morning when I have to deal with two middle-schoolers. It was little bit overwhelming for me.  But I felt bad not to make it for him and giving some unhealthy carb rich breakfast every day.  So I started planning and got the hang of it now.

Oatmeal - Breakfast in a bottle!

This is again another healthy breakfast recipe I tried yesterday.  I got the motivation from Pavithra's Facebook pictures.  Oatmeal is my almost everyday breakfast. I will just fill the one minute oats in a box and take it along to work and cook it there and eat it along with 6 or 7 almonds.  Now a days after so many beautiful pictures of mason jar breakfast ideas online, I really wanted to try making my own mason jar breakfast. When I was in the middle of filling the bottle, my girls got curious and wanted to make their own breakfast bowl.  I used an empty honey bottle to make this dish. Here is what I did.

Granola Bars

I got the motivation for making these bars from Pavithra.  I have bookmarked couple of granola bars from her blog and wanted to try for a long time now.  This weekend, I somehow managed to find time to make this.  This did not take that long to make.  Here is what I did.

Pizza - Using Pizza Kit

This is just a review post.  We bought this Molinaro's stone baked organic pizza kit from Costco.  I thought of writing a simple review for the product.  I have used Pillsbury pizza crust before and tried once. But this is the first time where I am using an already baked pizza crust.

Banana Almond Butter Muffin

The goal for this new year is to use very less sugar in whatever I bake.  While going through many sites, I came to know that honey can be substituted as sugar along with fruits which are naturally sweet. I tried this muffin recipe this weekend and it came out spongy. I took the basic banana peanut butter recipe from allrecipes.com and changed the ingredients according to this muffin. Here goes the recipe.
