Brine Baked Crispy Chicken, oh we know you want it!

Brine Baked Crispy Chicken, oh we know you want it!

Why brine, you ask? Well, it certainly tenderizes the meat, yes, really. The meat itself is packed with flavors, potent AF! What I love about brining is that you can experiment with infusions and the meat absorbs it beautifully, along with the water, making it juicier, especially the boneless cuts.

 

Crispy chicken is literally every carnivore's favorite snack and what better than a healthier version? It is definitely healthier, tastier and it’s everything done right to a beautiful piece of lean meat. It’s one of those ‘I crave junk food without the junk in it’ kinda recipes. Plus, once...


HAVE YOUR CAKE AND DRINK IT TOO? YOU CAN, WITH THIS SPICED CHAI CAKE!

HAVE YOUR CAKE AND DRINK IT TOO? YOU CAN, WITH THIS SPICED CHAI CAKE!

I love Chai and I love Cake. There you go, I said it. I remember the first time I tasted spiced (or masala) chai, was 12 years ago. My entire family loves gathering for Tea and (my grandma’s rum) cake. Whether it is talking about how our day was to discussing paramount family matters, we always had to have tea. It really is such an important part of our social culture. I know that the English got tea to India during their rule but the credit to tea becoming our national drink should be given to the spices....

Eggciting new breakfast - ‘Çılbır' / Turkish Poached eggs

Eggciting new breakfast - ‘Çılbır' / Turkish Poached eggs


We’ve all heard of the ridiculously common egg dishes popular around the world. Yet, there are new ones being put together, while you are reading this. My love affair with eggs is an old tale. However, every relationship needs oil for the rust. I looked around all over social media for inspiration. Sadly, what started as an enthusiastic task turned into a circuitous pursuit. I found a dozen recipes of eggs with a twist on ingredients here and there but nothing that’d stir up tingles in my sensory antennae. Time went by and I forgot about it. To fulfill that...


Miracle Cookies! 100% Oatmeal.

Miracle Cookies! 100% Oatmeal.

Ask me about chocolate-chip cookies and I can go on forever! Especially those made with great  ingredients. Such a myth it is, that cookies have to be fattening, lousy and everything but healthy! I believed it too, for the longest time, since all purpose flour was the primary choice for possibly every cookie recipe you’d find. Even though all purpose flour does take up important space in a well rehearsed kitchen, it isn’t the best sort of carb you put into your body. Now, that being said, how would you like a cookie recipe that has NO all...
