Eggs and I share a very intimate relationship. Most of my friends very well know that and I often get teased about the same. I tend to make them to celebrate the happy moments and also to soothe myself during times of distress. I love to eat them for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Today's recipe is the most fun dish I made in recent times. It felt like am playing with two different recipes and combining the recipes into one which is better in taste and in looks as well. My good friend Sandeepa has a similar Bengali version and mine - Easy Indian Omelette Curry is an lazy, adapted version. In less than half an hour, you will have a delicious egg dish which can be served with any kind of rice or roti. :-) Enjoy!

Oatmeal Cookies. Just a mere mention of these bring back so many vivid childhood memories for most of us. A classic oatmeal cookie recipe has nothing more than flour, oats, butter, eggs, sugar, leavening agent and a mix-in like raisins, chocolate chips, nuts, dried berries etc. Wouldn't it be incredible if we could put a healthy spin to our beloved cookie recipe? How about whole wheat flour, rolled oats, healthy fat like coconut oil and honey (or agave). Since quite some time I was in look out for a fool-proof recipe and am happy to report today's version is exactly that. Many of my co-workers at office loved them when I took a batch yesterday and even my skeptic better-half gave a thumbs up! Excited with the cookie success and a sweet comment about my blog on Instagram by Anusha nudged me to come out of my slumberland and actually write about them. Enjoy!

In his book The Compound Effect, author and former publisher of SUCCESS magazine Darren Hardy says - it takes around three hundred instances of any deliberate act to become an ingrained, involuntary habit. Well, if that is the case then I must have surely had at least three hundred cups of tea, for it is the first thing I do every single morning. In many cultures around the world, the art of drinking tea is associated with mindfulness and a form of meditation. You are forced to stop rushing through the day, stay still and enjoy a cup, one-sip-at-a-time. Over the course of many years, I managed to capture a few moments in my camera and paired with a favorite quote on tea, below are snapshots of this most treasured habit of mine. Enjoy.
