Bananas with custard

A party time dessert, with very little effort. A dessert which is good for any time of the also happens to be one of my favorites. It’s very simple, requires very few ingredients and is ready in a snap! I made this custard for our Rock Star party and it was appreciated by one and all of all ages.

Rock Star turned '1'

It is such an joyful time for me and my family. Just like everyone would say, but it means so much. I wonder how 1 year passed away so soon. It is such an wonder to see your kid growing every inch. The way Shyam lay beside me when he was born and now how he runs around the house in just a year is such an wonder!
He loves the episode Fresh Beat Band which comes in NickJr, and all their songs. So we call him Rock Star @ home.

The party was such a big party with 35 guests and 12 kids. we had invited all our friends to share the joy and happiness. Hasini had her share in inviting her friends too. We had arranged some exiting games for the kids which made them occupied through out the party. Thats some nice time for us ;)

Kadai Vegetable

A mixed curry with healthy vegetables in to go in for rotis or rice. I love to have them for rice. I usually make such gravy which has more vegetables once a week to have a healthy side dish. And I also prepare them when I have little of all vegetables left over at the end of the week.

Pear Walnut Muffin

Everyday I wake in the morning with a will power to stay on a healthy diet. So Sundar keeps couple of fruits, some raw vegetables, and nuts for the snacks. So, I keep saying to myself to have them during those craving time. But somehow, the chips or the breads, cream cheese overtake and rule over the fruits in my body. Does this happen to everyone, I ask myself. well, may be! Then mind goes in eating those lousy chips saying, its OK for a day.Although, my pantry is filled with quite a many healthy things, they have some chips and cheesy stuffs clinging around the corners. It is hard to eat healthy food during your cravings. So it is better to keep the healthy foods on the dining table with a glass of water, so we try to reach out and have these.
My muffins are a result to my cravings. I wanted to replace them a highly healthy snack.

"Satisfaction from mindless craving lasts only the first 5-10 minutes (that is until you start feeling full) but the satisfaction and contentment from eating the nutritious foods is for LIFE!"
The egg was replaced only to pave way for flaxseeds to boost omega-3 fatty acids in these muffins. Some Oat bran went it to increase metabolism and lower bad cholesterol. Wheat provides fiber additionally along with Oat bran.  The Phytonutrients, Vitamin E and Omega 3 fatty acids in walnuts makes them a beneficial addition. Vitamin C, Potassium and additional Fiber come from Pears.  For all the wholesome nutrition that this provides and the way its heartiness makes it so filling.
