My blog turns 6 years old! | Sweet Coconut Bread [Step by Step Recipe]

Oh boy! What a wonderful feeling it is to celebrate 6 years of non-stop food blogging. I really didn't have a clue what I was getting myself into when I started this blog on a hot Sunday afternoon way back in 2007. I was neither a good cook nor good photographer then. I was nothing. Just someone who was tired of waiting, someone who was hoping something nice would happen in her life.

How to Cook Perfect Brown Rice Every Time In 3 Steps [Under 20 Minutes]

Cooking a perfect pot of brown rice (to me at least) is the holy grail to healthy and tasty eating. For many years now, since the time I started to cook my own meals, mastering the art of cooking brown rice just like our beloved white rice has been nothing less than a quest in itself. A simple google search every time led to some good and many bad results. The most popular of all is this recipe published on Saveur in 2008 where it suggests to cook brown rice just like pasta, in tons of salted water (1 cup of rice needs 12 cups of water!!!).

...there must be a better way, I thought and trust me indeed there is!

Noodle (Pasta) Salad with Ginger Peanut Dressing Recipe

Lots of raw, fresh vegetables along with a smooth, creamy dressing and of course noodles is what makes this salad sumptuous and a meal in itself. This is one of the recipes I bookmarked when I was subscribed to Vegetarian Times magazine while in US. I love those stash of old magazines so much that I got them along with me back to India. Every now and then, I flip through them for inspiration on what to try out and today's recipe is a result of one such browsings!
