Tahini on Toast. Take that, Peanut Allergy.

You will love this if you are allergic to peanuts but okay with ground sesame seeds, which is what tahini is. It is used to make hummus (which not many people do at home) or when frying up a batch of falafel (again, most people go for the take-out variety). It is also an answer to all those times when you travel with a preschooler who is allergic to peanuts, and you want to be able to make simple sandwiches on the go. All you need is buttered toast, tahini, honey, and flaky salt.

Share it with a peanut-butter-eater and see them not being able to tell the difference! Hah!

If you have already discovered this trick on one of the many websites dedicated to food, well, then what can I say? Spread the good word.

For a three year old, there is no such thing as too much snow. But you and I, let us brace ourselves for what may well be a historic blizzard. Stay warm. Stay safe. Stock up on essentials like cocoa and graham crackers. And plenty of books.

December 13, 2014

We are back from a month-long stay in Kolkata, having touched upon Mumbai, and for the briefest of time, Frankfurt. We flew for 8 hours straight, twice in a day, and then some more. We had a three-year-old with us, and it was his first time on a plane. Apart from not being too keen […]

New Beginnings

September 24, 2014

This maybe the post that I leave you with. For most of October and maybe a good chunk of November. See, the thing is, we are moving. Same town, different neighborhood. The boxes are here, some of them already packed. Some semi-stuffed with packing paper, looking like a square bird’s nest. The fridge has been […]

The Garden State on Labor Day Weekend

September 6, 2014

I know you are looking at the photo on the left, that of Liberty State Park, and thinking how amazing it is. Don’t let the blue-grey skies in the picture fool you. It wasn’t so pretty when we were walking the two-mile promenade with three kids, two of them under four years old. It was […]
