Quick & Easy means the start-to-finish time is under 30 minutes and that the dish does not require any advanced culinary techniques.

Tri Colored Shrikand

Tri Colored Shrikand

Tasty and sweet, containing almonds and kajuss. As you may know, it’s a traditional Maharashtra dessert.
It’s creamy, thick and delicious.

Mango Salad with Miso-Sesame Dressing

Mango Salad with Miso-Sesame Dressing

This recipe came out of my cravings for something bright and refreshing but also something with a depth of flavour. What developed was an idea to create my take on a mango salad (Thai) with a miso-based dressing (Japanese). After making it the first time, my mother frequently asks for it to accompany our meals.

Chocolate Banana Bread Muffins

Chocolate Banana Bread Muffins

One of my FAVORITE recipes that my mom would make when I lived at home was chocolate banana nut muffins. Whenever I’d notice the bananas starting to go bad, I would be like “oooh mom can you make the muffins?!” and she always would.

With this recipe, I originally wanted to make banana bread, but I realized that our bread loaf pans are at home (it’s baseball season so we’re traveling right now). I figured I’d just use muffin pans and call it a day. But the muffin pans and brown bananas reminded me of my mom’s recipe so I decided to stray from my original idea and let my mom inspire this recipe!

Blueberry Banana Cream Pie

Blueberry Banana Cream Pie

This is a no bake dessert we always have at Thanksgiving and Christmas. Any chance I need to bring a dessert to an event this is what I go with. At any given family function there are anywhere between 4-10 pies or more. It’s soo good and with an electric mixer its even better

Raspberry Muffins

Raspberry Muffins

As my husband and I were finishing up a hike in Arizona during spring training, one of my sorority sisters texted me and asked if I had any blueberry or raspberry muffin recipes. She said she loves raspberries in the morning before work and she was at the store looking at raspberry muffins when she thought “wait, my best friend makes healthy recipes, why don’t I ask her?!” and immediately I started brainstorming this recipe, eager to get the ingredients and try it out. So the result is a moist, fluffy raspberry muffin with zero added sugar and heart-healthy fats.

Kati’s Sprouts

Kati’s Sprouts

My family calls these my “Unhealthy Brussels Sprouts”, it was a way to get my family familiar with brussels sprouts, and ease them into clean eating!

Corn Chip Candy Bars

Corn Chip Candy Bars

I first made this last Christmas. I wanted to combine the trendy flavors of sweet and salty. They’re very rich, but you can’t just eat one!

Zucchini Hummus

Zucchini Hummus

I am a huge fan of hummus, but I don’t always love making it at home, because it takes a little bit of effort to get it as smooth as restaurant quality hummus.

By swapping the chickpeas with raw zucchini, this hummus becomes so creamy, so light and refreshing, and comes together so fast, it’s my absolute favorite way to make hummus at home!
