Daring Bakers: Cannoli with Gianduja Cream and Lemon Goat Cheese Cream


Cannoli Gianduja (02) by MeetaK 

“Sorry we’re not baking this month...” was the very first line I read as I opened up the Daring Kitchen forum earlier this month to see what the Daring Bakers’ were going to be challenged with. OK I am going to admit I did a sigh of relief! November has been full for me – too full! It has taught me to never pack a month so full with things!

Thanksgiving with a Layered Cranberry and Mango Mousse - Eggless


Cranberry Mango Mousse (01) by MeetaK 

It’s hard to believe that the year is slowly but very surely coming to an end. At this time last year there were so many plans and new beginnings being schemed. If anything 2009 has really taught us how things can backfire and that even the most immaculately drafted plan can fall apart.

But we look forward and make new plans and aspire to aim for new goals. It’s what keeps us going.

Monthly Mingle 38: Warming Soups



It’s that time of year when all we want to do is get back home into the warmth and coziness. Nothing beats the cold and rain outside than coming home to a bowl of steaming soup.

Hearty soups, warming soups, comfy soups or chilled soups – whatever you are craving we want it.

  2. Post about it on your blog between today i.e., 22.11.09 and 14.12.09. (Entries must be in English, please).

  3. Your creation must exclusively be prepared for this event and cannot be submitted to any other blog event.
  4. You must provide a link to Harini’s announcement post and/or this post and send the details called for below (please look up for links at the end of the post).

  5. If your recipe is inspired from a cookbook, site or blog please acknowledge and provide a direct link to the source.

  6. Please send a mail to 'sunshinemomsblog [at] gmail [dot] com' with the following details. If you do not receive an acknowledgment within 5 days please leave a comment and we will get back to you the same day.

So get those pots steaming with something delicious, we’re looking forward to all your entries.

Note about the Brunch Roundup: The roundup to last month’s theme will be posted next week. As I am off to London for the FBC this weekend I will not be able to get around to it – but look forward to over 70 incredible brunch ideas.

Whole Wheat Granola Goji Muffins


Granola Goji Muffins (02a) by MeetaK 

Medicham, Gyarados, Hitmonchan, Crawdaunt, Shelgon, Venusaur, Pikachu, Zigzagoon or how about Jazz, Ratchet, Bumblebee, Optimus Prime, Ironhide or Megatron. If I have gotten you a bit confused here then I presume you are not a parent of a 6-10 year old boy. Those who do have sons in this age will straight away know what I am rambling on about - right?

Caramelized Quince Jam with a Sprinkling of Cinnamon


Quince Cinnamon Jam (01) by MeetaK 

Monday 9th November 2009 marked 20 years of German re-unification. I remember, like it was only yesterday, watching The Wall come down back in 1989. I was in Doha watching CNN with my parents and friends and thinking "WOW! They do not have to queue for bananas anymore!"

Feel Good: Carrot and Red Lentil Soup with a Hint of Cumin


Carrot Lentil Soup (01) by MeetaK 

It’s been fairly quite around here, I know. I’ve been feeling rather low and a funny kind of flu seems to have taken hold of me. I say funny because it’s not a full blown flu – it seems it’s fighting inside of me. It wants to come out but I am fighting to banish it from taking control. This is taking away a lot of energy and I’ve been feeling a bit drained.

Dimpled Mirabelle Plum Focaccia with Lemon Poppy Seed Butter


Mirabelles Lemon Poppy Seed Foccacia (02) by MeetaK 

There are certain times in my life when I feel like I need to break free. Free from the usual. Beak away from what I do everyday. Don’t get me wrong – I love my life – especially where I am today. I have everything I could desire and am happy – right down to the core. I am a Gemini you see, and every now and then my terrible twin comes out of the hiding and asks “What if …?”
