    Some recipes are borrowed, some passed down and some – like the recipe for these no-knead garlic rolls – are invented by my over imaginative brain.

    There is a lot of thinking about food going on in my head all the time. I’ve been branded an obsessive foodie by many. And why should I be embarrassed about it? Yes – I may not seem normal to my next door neighbor; who cannot fathom why my eyes pop out when I smell beautiful onions caramelizing or when I see mint leaves growing right outside in the garden like there’s no tomorrow! The truth is – my brain goes into a recipe overdrive every time I see or get my hands on fresh ingredients.

    One day, I got myself some fresh, subtly pungent garlic cloves and plucked green chilies from my chili pot… and got to thinking about all the classic possibilities I could make with 2 most commonly used ingredients. I had made numerous variations of the garlic bread before. The one thing all of them involved was – KNEADING. While there isn’t anything wrong with getting some elbow grease, wouldn’t we all like to do away with the kneading a few times? After a few different attempts, I finally made some super soft rolls with a dough that barely involved any kneading!

    First things first: Swirls add a pinch of happiness to the food. Am I right or what? 😀 I’m a big believer in spending little time cooking and as much time eating. But I do like a little zing in my food. I mean, how often can you eat the same bread over and over again? I am a carbaholic and I love bread. But a little twist every now and then makes eating bread a much more fun experience. And making swirl rolls are just so darn easy, that I often forego a pizza or a tortilla for these babies.

    Sorry to have called these pesto swirl rolls babies. But these are adorable looking and just a pleasure to devour! Serve them with my super healthy barley vegetable soup for a complete meal.

    If you’re like me, you probably stock some pizza dough in your freezer at all times. If you don’t, well a) WHY AREN’T YOU? and b) It doesn’t take much time to make the dough from scratch either. (If you’re looking for a healthier version, I’ve got a great whole wheat pizza dough recipe too) And the filling is where you bring on your A-game! There are literally 100s of pesto varieties and you get to switch things up every time you make these rolls.   (more…)

    Welcome to the world of Mozzarella!

    If you’re anything like me, my brother and half the world’s population, you dig mozzarella…. and with good reason too! The stringy, stretchy, gooey texture rendered by mozzarella (especially the fresh kind) is an experience not to be missed.

    Yes, yes, I’ll get to the tomato and basil too now. You would have seen these 3 ingredients together in a Caprese salad…. or if you’re a Foodomania fan (in which case, xoxo!), my rebelling Caprese Pizza? 😀 Taking the concept of caprese further, we’re making a traditional Italian bread called focaccia and topping it off with this salad.
