Coconut flavored Rice-A-Roni

There have been many occasions when me and my children do not look eye to eye about dinner. I take so much love and effort making something nutritious and yummy for them and all I get is an eyeroll and “I wish there was Mac and Cheese”. It just is so heartbreaking when you have to face a dinner table battle over food choices. Even when I have no qualms whatsoever with mac and cheese. I make it so often , I can do it my eyes closed.

I was wondering for some time how do I make it to look like and taste like macaroni, then I stumbled upon the idea of Rice -A-Roni and perfect way to make it. with simple ingredients like coconut milk , rice and cheese that we all …

Turmeric and Thyme Breakfast Biscuits

Hi my lovely friends. I hope you are having a great Sunday. Before we get to my next two amazing curry paste recipes, I have for you a mini recipe inspired by Sri Lankan flat breads and Greek phyllo dough. Sri Lankan coconut flatbread is very simple form of unleavened bread made by cooking on a hot skillet. Dough is made by mixing about a cup of grated fresh coconut and 3 cups of all purpose flour with water and some salt. Dough is kneaded until soft but not sticking to the bowl. Phyllo dough is made very similar but without coconuts. It is made with whole wheat flour, olive oil and water. You could also add some Greek yogurt too if you choose to do so. If you want to learn how to make this awesome phyllo dough I highly recommend following blog by Diane Kochilas, where she share great recipes and tips. Every Sunday morning is the special breakfast day for my family. Today it was time to make my own breakfast biscuit …

Keto Coconut Butter

I made my own version of coconut butter . I have been reading so much about it and decided to give it a try. It is so devine.

Yummy yummy with English muffins for breakfast. This is a great alternative to peanut butter and almond butter. Adding ghee makes it the consistency of cheesecake.
