Green Goddess Mocktail Recipe

Green Goddess Mocktail Recipe
A shimmering Emerald Green Non Alcholic Mocktail that consists of ingredients that are a natural body coolant. And after looking at the color aptly named the drink as "The Green Goddess Moctail". I adapted this recipe from Shatbhi Basu’s Blue Breeze as a part of the contest hosted by Indian Food Bloggers meet that I attended previously this month. I’m so glad that I was a able to get hold of a bottle of this awesome natural syrup as its very difficult to get here. And I’m so glad that I was able to mix it with another ingredient that was an impulse purchase once again by the Hubby.

Strawberry Mojito Recipe | Non Alcoholic Mocktail Recipes

Strawberry Virgin Mojito
A dazzling and refreshing non alcoholic virgin strawberry and mint virgin mojito that just screams summer from the roof tops. It is so apt to serve for small gatherings or for large pool parties when the sun is beating down unscrupulously. I have whipped up this Mojito as a part of a contest hosted by Indian Food Bloggers meet that I attended previously this month.

Being a Tata Product, I loved using their Sparkling Himalayan with their tag line “Live Natural” and sparkle everyday, I hope to do exactly that. I have adapted this recipe from Shatbhi Basu’s Peach Mojito and instead of using peach and apricot crush in the recipe I used my homemade strawberry crush which was waiting to be emptied.

When I was at IFBM 2014

Aloft Bengaluru Cessna Business Park
Indian Food Bloggers Meet – A meet by the bloggers, for the bloggers and to the bloggers that I had the fortune to attend. Without any second thoughts, I can say that Indian Food Bloggers Meet is the best thing that could have happened in life to me as a blogger. The blogs that I admired all along stopped being just blogs and took the form of person.

Its not a small feat to bring together 40+ bloggers under one roof, scheduling the sessions, managing the sponsors, taking care of food and the organizers, Aparna, Arundati, Revathi and Nanditha did it with simplistic style and confidence. Hats off for their sustained effort that the meet was recognized in the media.

Corn Quiche Recipe | Crustless Cheesy Corn Quiche Recipe

Crustless Sweet Corn Quiche, a complete wholesome meal with step by Step pictures.
Corn Quiche Recipe
Quiche is an open faced pastry made either with a crust or without it, that has a savory filling with a custard which is mostly egg based. You can make either a meat based or vegetable filling depending on you choice. When you do not have the time or watching your calorie intake, you can go for a crust less quiche like this one. I wanted to make a tart or pie but did not want to end up eating a butter rich pastry after the Plum Crumble Bars, so opted for a crust less Quiche that’s filed with veggies and cheese that are loved by the kids.

Lemon Basil Mojito Recipe | Mocktail Recipes

Classic & Elegant Lemon Basil Virgin Mojito Mocktail Recipe to beat the heat during Summer.
Lemon Basil Mojito Recipe
This perfect thirst quencher is Non Alcoholic, that both the adults and kids can enjoy during hot summer. This virgin mojito is so simple to make and it feeds a crowd easily. 2 months ago during peak summer I wanted to make a mojito and even attempted it but ended up only to break my favorite glass in the name of muddling. That recipe never got published as I was so depressed over the glass. But I consoled myself that I needed more practice and kept practicing without giving up and it finally paid off as I made this drink which tasted just perfect. 

Lemon Basil Moctail Recipe
By now you all must that I’m going to the first Indian Food Blogger’s Meet that is being held in Bangalore. One of the sponsors Urban Dazzle are hosting a contest for cocktails and mocktails and I so excited to be sending my first entry. I feel that this drink would look great in this footed schooner. Don’t you?

I’m done using mint leaves for drinks and when I was wondering what to pair with lemon to make this drink, I saw the pungent Tulsi leaves that I had bought for Friday Pooja and it was just perfect for my purpose. Tulsi (Indian holy basil) has a lot of medicinal properties and apart from the pungent smell it has also got a very sharp taste that balanced the tartness in the lemon in this drink very well.

Plums Oatmeal Crumble Bars Recipe | Eggless Dessert Recipes

Eggless Plums Oatmeal Crumble Bars that serves as a Dessert or a quick snack or as a healthy breakfast.
Plums Oatmeal Crumble Bars Recipe
These Plum Crumble Bars are loaded with oatmeal and so buttery in taste. The sweet and tart plum filling gives a rich tangy taste to the bars. Moreover these are Eggless. And did i tell you that the Refrigerator that I had with me for the past 14 years, that saw 3 home shifting and still carried on so much with zest, finally decided to take rest and gave up totally. For the past 1 week I’m without a refrigerator at home and oh boy it made me realize how much I depend on my sturdy little fridge and how much I miss it already. Finally went shopping yesterday and booked a huge one for me when compared to the single door one that I had till date. Now to the recipe….

Baked Oatmeal Plums Crumble Bars
As the plums I had on hand were so tart I had to use a little bit of sugar to the topping to reduce the tartness and as I’m chasing time to post this recipe as today is the last day for the contest, I was so worried whether I would be able to slice them properly with the little resting time I gave in my non functional, almost dead fridge, but the Gods must indeed have been listening to me from heavens as I was able to cut them in perfect slices.

The kids loved these bars so much after they came from school along with a glass of milk. As these bars are so rich in butter, it was quite filling to them. Keep these bars refrigerated and enjoy a slice as and when you wish for a quick bite.
