Imagine a blustery winter morning and you are craving for something warm and comforting. Our Indian breakfast recipes are the best, idli with sambar, upma, huLi avalakki, ukad etc. But sometimes you can also go for something different and oatmeal is definitely a very healthy option. How about trying to make it more interesting by making this apple cinnamon oatmeal.
Apple cinnamon oatmeal makes regular oats tastier and more attractive. Cinnamon adds a touch of warmth and earthiness. On the other hand, there is sweet juicy apple all chopped up ready to go on top of your oatmeal.

A hot cup of tea or coffee is always refreshing. Sometimes you can indulge a bit and choose something like hot chocolate. Today let’s take indulgence a little further and serve up white hot chocolate. White Hot chocolate is decadent and fancy!
White hot chocolate, as you have guessed, has white chocolate, what are the odds. Infact white chocolate is not chocolate at all, it is made of cocoa butter, a by-product of making regular dark/milk chocolate. Here I have used some cooking white chocolate (the kind that is used for baking). But any brand of white chocolate will do. ... “White Hot Chocolate | Orange White Hot Chocolate | Beverage Recipes”

It has vegetables which provide fibre, olives and olive oil providing some good fat and cheese with some calcium. Of course using whole wheat flour to make tortilla or roti to put the filling into makes it extra fibrous and healthy. ... “Tortilla Pocket | Tortilla Parcel | Snack Recipes”

Creamy, dreamy and oozing with flavour of variety of fruits – fruits and cream

A bowl of cut fruits seems boring and tasteless. But fresh fruits are good for you, they are rich in fibre and nutrients. But once in a while how about enriching your bowl of fruits by adding some sweetened cream. Especially when guests are over and you want to make something quickly but still special. Fruits and cream is the answer 🙂
You can use any kind of fresh ripe fruits to make your own version of fruits and cream. Infact the best way to serve this and make it look fancy is by presenting a fruits and cream buffet. Assorted bowls of fruits cut up or sliced. Then beside it lay out a big bowl of beaten, thickened luscious sweetened cream to pour on top. ... “Fruits and Cream | Creamy fruit salad | Dessert Recipes”
