Kanak, lovely braided breads. I always liked baking, there are many swiss recipes braided cakes and breads made with yeasty dough. You present everything beautifully and mouthwatering.  I just had a look again at your nature blog. I keep it on my blog roll as it is such a delightful blog . I always thought Sunita and you had the most delightful  natural posts from your wonderful country. Hope you have a great year with many fine recipes to share.All my best wishes also for your family. 
Braided bread topped with sesame seeds  I've been busy  entertaining family and friends which kept me away from blogging. But the joy of working on recipes is much more when there are many {mouths:)}to sample them. To see my ...

Kanak, you never run out of exciting, exotic, wonderful food ideas. Merry Christmas and a very happy New Year to you and your loved ones.
I first came across the word makhana in Jiggs Kalra's recipes but it wasn't only recently that I used them in my cooking. Lotus seeds are pretty common in pickles but the puffed ones never really came my way.:) So when I saw ...

Good on you  Sarah,  put that garden in. The baby will love to help you harvesting  some fruit or berries. You will love to walk around in a nursery to pick some seedlings; this will be work but also much fun for all of you, much healthier then sitting before the TV! Nature is part of life not the TV. Ciao and good luck, the baby is very sweet, I guess it is a little boy, holding on to a truck.
After talking about it for months, we finally decided today was the day we would put in our garden. After all, it is pumpkin planting season! There's something about gardening that reminds me so much of my childhood. Everythi...

I have never cooked Okra and never eaten it. It has a similar flower like Rosella from which I have made jam. My forte is Mediterranean cooking. Next time when I see Okra I will buy some and try your recipe. My mother had a garden as well, I guess that's why we are gardener's? I remember from your blogs when you went back home, such a beautiful place.

This interesting story brings back memories.  A relative of us,  a cousin's wife went every summer to the Bayreuther Festspiele.  I did not go but I helped her chose the evening  gowns she was wearing.  She enjoyed Wagner's music very much, but I also think she enjoyed the company and everything else that went on.. Not only did she visit the performances she had all the records with different singers.  She died  in her sixties.  I don't know what happened to her record collection.

Sounds delicious, my grandchildren love to bake. 
I think it's safe to say I'm slightly pumpkin obsessed!  But with good reason, it's delicious in more than just pie.  It goes great in various baked goods and smoothies. (See my take on a pumpkin smoothie in the "Pumpkin Smoo...
