    Hello everyone! If you read the title of this post and thought of a music duo then you are a well-seasoned human being (that’s a nice way of saying that you’re old, ha ha.  Don’t worry, I myself am ancient. I grew up in the 80’s).  (For those young ones who are puzzled, Peaches and…

Every April, May and June this wonderful season takes over, particularly for Indian and Indian-American households who are mango-crazy.  When I…

    Hello Everyone! What an interesting foodie household we have had here in the past few weeks.  Kirina is almost three and Ela is almost 3 months.  Kirina, my original “ethnic baby” (aka guinea pig for recipes from my please-let-me-get-published-soon-book) is in toddler-eating mode and Ela is in full-on nursing mode (forming her own tastes through…

    Hello all! Hope everyone’s Friday is going well! Had a fun snack from Kirina’s table this week to post.  I was thinking a lot about my mom, particularly since Mother’s Day is coming up (she passed away 8 years ago this June.  I miss her loads, and miss her cooking just as much).  We had…

    Freshly picked summer strawberries Hi everyone! Kirina picked these strawberries all by herself! Here in the Garden State we are lucky to live near such amazing farms, all full of fresh, homegrown fruits and vegetables.  Our favorite farm, Terhune Orchards, has a cute “read and pick” event every other Tuesday this summer.  It was so…

    Happy Friday everyone! Hope everyone is finally enjoying some sort of nice weather across the states.  Here in New Jersey we have had a wacky mix of rains, floods, and finally sunshine.  As soon as I post this I’m taking the little ones outside. So normally I’m whipping up different meals for Kirina or thinking…

    Hello everyone! It has simply been ages since I have posted! This is largely due to some happy news…we have a new ethnic baby in our household! My little girl Ela was born on March 7, 2014!  She was a whopping 5lbs, 18-inches.  All are fine and healthy, thank goodness.  Here’s a snappy:   I…

    This week from Kirina’s table…. Good Morning to everyone on this cold winter day!  Actually it’s a balmy 35 degrees here in New Jersey, which for people of this state might as well be Florida weather for all the polar vortex/freeze/ice box temperatures we’ve been having.   We spent the weekend trying to play in the…

    Hi everyone…Happy New Year! As usual, I am a little late on the game, it being 17 days into the new year. I blame pregnancy (I seem to blame a lot on pregnancy these days.  two more months left of using that excuse). 🙂 I’m not sure who is giving who the food education these…

    “Food Moods”

    150 150 Leena Saini

    Hi everyone, It has been a few days since my last post.  Mainly because I feel like a frazzled muppet these days:  My daughter is 2, I am six months pregnant, I started a part-time job and am still on the hunt for literary cookbook agents.  In between all that we’ve dealt with some fevers…
