5 Must See Recipes For The Week

Best Blogger Tips
Another week, another roundup and another set of awards. Thanks to Jayasree and Swati for passing on the below mentioned awards to me. The first one is the Nice Matters Award passed on by Jayasree.
“Nice Matters Award is for those bloggers who are nice people; good blog friends and those who inspire good feelings and inspiration. Also for those who are a positive influence on our blogging world.”

Thanks for the award Jayasree and I in turn pass it on to:

My second one comes from Swati at Chatkhor. It is the Good Chat Blog award with all the ladies chatting in the pic. Per Swati they were talking about my blog. Swati, it is ironical, since the business I head deals with chat :)
I pass this on to:


Ladies, Please accept these awards even if you have received them earlier.

With the season being of awards, and I being getting a few in the last few weeks, I now think I should unashamedly request every visitor on this site to go to blogger's choice award and vote for me :)

Leaving that aside and focusing on my weekly roundup, here are the 5 that I found a must try.

1. Cardamom Honey Baklava Ice Cream in Phyllo Cups - Amazing stuff, literally, very unique and the ice cream is a real scene stealer. For anyone who hasn't tried Baklava before, please have it first. After you get hooked onto it, then you can get to this one.

2. Creme Brulee - A classic for all occasions. Creme Brulee or Burnt cream in plain English is a custard dessert topped with a layer of hard caramel created by either burning sugar under a grill or by a blowtorch, and served in a ramekin. You can work with different flavors and add liqueurs to it. It's simple to make and yet elegant. Amy's dessert looks wonderful and elegant. It just made my resolve to get that Blowtorch that I have been postponing for so long.

3. Lettuce Soup - Absolutely brilliant. I have leftover Lettuce so many times and really am at my wits end on what to do with it. This is just great to have and use.

4. Pollo Alla Birra (Chicken in Lager) - I tried out the beer can chicken some years back on my grill in Cleveland and loved it ( actually the whole idea was thrilling enough). This one is another good one to try out. They say don't mix drinking and driving. I support it. But, Drinks in food ,...I support that too :)

5. Whole Wheat Sesame Noodles with Spicy Peanut Sauce - I love this dish, cos I love Rachel Ray's cooking. Whole wheat pasta is a healthy choice and coupling it with Peanut Sauce will make this dish out of the world. Call it my weakness for Peanut sauces and peanut butters and Snickers (wow). This is a great recipe when you are entertaining.
