Skinny Baked Vegan Meatballs | Gluten Free

Skinny Baked Vegan Meatballs

Everybody loves their comfort food and most of them like it as their mothers cook. I also belong to the same category. I always try to recreate my mother’s cooking and that’s how I keep myself happy on those stressful days. But recently my happiness is gone to the bay as the nearest supermarket had stopped selling non-veg items (How could they do that to me, I was such a regular customer there; sob sob!) and by force I’m turning into a vegetarian. No I don’t have any offence to any vegetarian it’s just I love non-veg more than my life (at least I believe so).

Spaghetti Aglio e Olio | Easy Pasta Recipe

Spaghetti with garlic in chili oil

“What's in a name?” remember this famous quote of Shakespeare? Today this quote is loitering in my mind since morning as I was cooking Spaghetti Aglio e Olio. Sounds so difficult, right? But on the contrary it is the simplest spaghetti dish I can ever imagine. Frankly speaking it is nothing but a simple and quick dish with a fancy name.

D.I.Y. Marinara Sauce in 20 mins (Vegan)

Homemade Marinara Sauce

Who doesn’t love simple pasta with freshly homemade sauce? I do and I love to enjoy it repeatedly. I call it my kind of comfort food. Marinara sauce is my personal favorite for these comfort foods. Reason? I’ve got plenty to pass. It’s simple, nothing fancy, versatile usage, easy to make, needs regular ingredients which are always available in your pantry and last but most importantly you can make it gallons and store it for a long time say, for the entire summer. Cool isn’t it? The only problem I had faced so far with this sauce is its preparation is a bit time consuming. I need to simmer it for 30-60 mins (talking about bulk; okay?) but recently I’m using a quick hassle free version of it which not only produces a large amount (to fill up your refrigerator) but also will be ready in 20 mins.

Egg stuffed Meatloaf with Buttermilk Mashed Potatoes

Egg stuffed Meatloaf

Summer has already hit our skull and sucking our grey matters greedily. The door was ajar for the spring; summer took the advantage and now it is running through our breath. The heat is increasing rapidly and the climate is turning drier day by day. True, summer is drier here than winter. Summer is not only draining us but also it is eating up our appetite. But we must maintain the ratio of water and food intake to keep us healthy and alive. It is the time for some quick simple recipes of easily digestible food a.k.a. ‘comfort food’. So I’m handing out my favorite recipes of comfort food. Today is the turn for ‘Meatloaf’.

Chicken Mushroom Flan Pie

Flan Pie with Chicken Mushroom

Chicken Mushroom Flan Pie does it sound odd to you?? Gosh!! Then definitely I’m not the only one. The phrase ‘flan Pie’ caught my eyes couple of weeks back (actually its months not just weeks). I saw the phrase written on the door of a local bakery store. And immediately I felt the kick inside; What the hell is this! I just understood the differences between flan & pie; to some extend quiche & frittata may be. But now 'FLAN PIE'?? I mean seriously!! I just needed to know what the fuss was all about!
