Dak Bulgogi, Korean Spicy Chicken :
Savoury, sweet, caramelised and juicy strips of chicken wrapped in a crispy fresh lettuce leaf make the most sensational and stylish starters or finger food. Or serve as main course with grilled vegetables over a bowl of steamed rice.

This delicious and healthy recipe from Korean Hansik(food) gets done in minutes in a skillet .

Hyderabadi Qabooli or Chana Dal/Bengal Gram Biryani :
A vegetarian delicacy from the princely legacy of Hyderabadi cuisine.
It sounds simple and unassuming but has layers on layers of deliciousness . Exotic, aromatic and richly flavored with basmati rice, chana dal/Bengal gram, yogurt and spices… when they all are steamed together in dum, the result is a feast for the senses.

Great ideas for eating healthy together as a family by +joe The Fish. If you want to stay motivated, join his community Quitting Is Not An Option !
 
5 Tips for Eating Healthy Family Meals

1. Make meal prep a family activity. If your kids are just learning about the joys of fruits and veggies, or feel ‘meh’ about anything that doesn’t look like a slice of pizza, involve them in meal planning and prep. One person in your family can pick the meal for one night, and the other the next night,

2. Avoid the “H word.” To expand your family’s taste buds, pick out a new nutritious meal to try once or twice per week. “But don’t call it healthy,” The h-bomb can scare people away.

3. Go slow. “So many people want to make tons of changes at the same time, but these high expectations burn families out really quick,” 

4. Recruit a new crew. If your partner or family won’t join you talk to them in how this benefits the family.

5. Don’t give up. Not every meal will go perfectly. Your kids might tell you that whole-wheat bread tastes gross compared to white, or you might whip up a new low-cal recipe that’s just not a winner. Still, keep going — you and your entire family will benefit in the long run. Eating at least three meals per week as a family is associated with kids who eat more nutritious diets and are at a healthier

Golbheda ko Achar, Nepali Tomato Pickle Recipe :
If you are a condiment person like me, you shouldn't miss this one !
Perk up your simple meal in minutes with this chunky tomato chutney.
Roasted tomatoes cooked with fenugreek, mustard, ginger and garlic make a mouthwatering and versatile condiment.

Spread in sandwiches and wraps,dip your finger food, use as excellent pizza sauce with South Asian flavours. My favourite way to eat it is with some creamy red lentils and crispy layered paratha.

You are absolutely right dear +Indrani Sen n. We also have a red tomatoes and raisins chutney in Pakistan but I found this one more versatile because it can be used as a condiment, dip and spread.

Weekend Bulletin board

“After all, I believe the nicest and sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens but just those that bring simple little pleasures, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string.”
― L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Avonlea

I watched the first spring blooms and my vegetables thriving, made yummy Korean Bulgogi wraps with homegrown lettuce leaves, went shopping for books, enjoyed some organic Thyme tea and mulberry coated walnuts. While the cat posed for photo shoot as my younger one followed it around with her camera. Simple and sweet!

Hope you had a lovely weekend too :)

Easy cheesy baked leeks in Bechamel sauce!

Hi guys!:) Happy 2016!
 
As you imagined, we ate lots and lots of food in the Holiday season, had lots of good wine, and - of course - enjoyed MANY kourabiedes and melomakarona. 

We also went to the mountains of Evia and took some photos we put into this post:)

Since we consumed a lot of meat, we had to cook something delicious with vegetables. So, we turned to our classic leeks au gratin recipe. We published that one on our site ages ago, and we always wanted to take some fresh photos and rewrite the post. And we finally did it:) 

Here it is:
http://www.littlecookingtips.com/content/easy-cheesy-baked-leeks-bechamel-sauce

This is an amazing, rich and decadant vegetarian recipe, that's perfect for Meatless Mondays and for anyone looking to cut down on his/her meat consumption. You won't miss the meat at all with this recipe, we guarantee that!
 
This creamy casserole is a perfect dish for family gatherings and dinners with friends. Give it a try, it's always a huge hit when we have guests. 

Kali oreksi, we wish you a fantastic, healthy, creative 2016!

Like we mentioned in our last post, the winter finally came to Greece. This finally happened just before the arrival of 2016 (Happy New Year to all of you guys!). You see, in Christmas day, we had lots of sun and high temperatures, just like in autumn, which was rather annoying! So, on the New Year's Eve, not only this had changed, but we did get some snow as well! It was so beautiful, waking up in the New Year and seeing this white blanket of sn...

Another vegetarian delight today. My simple Daal Saag recipe recreated by my very dear friend, Shana from +Simples Recipes​​​​. She is a super mom and very passionate and creative food blogger who shares my belief that simple food can be delicious. Visit her blog http://www.recipesaresimple.com/
for her quick and yummilicious recipes or make your life easy with her wonderful video tutorials.
 
Guess what we had for Lunch today! This yummy, comforting bowl of Daal Saag by +maria nasir    was on my list 'to do' for a while now. I often make a version with Dal and Palak(Spinach) with Crispy Fried Chilli Shallot topping. My family loves that.. so I had to give this recipe a try as well. We had it with Rice at lunch time. Making Roti now to have the rest at dinner time. So happy I tried it. It's so yummy. Thanks to my friend Maria for sharing.
Here is the link to her recipe: https://plus.google.com/+marianasir/posts/iGxpDuLkuBh
