Coconut Poached Pears

         Pear is one fruit that is commonly poached in Wine. This is a healthy way of using pears to make desserts. We are using coconut milk to poach them and they are truly delicious. Serve them warm as desserts for special evenings. Poaching a fruit means cooking it in a simmering liquid to absorb the flavors. Now the liquid you use can be anything depending on the flavors. Apples and Pears are some of the best fruits that absorb the flavors when poached. Many love pears poached in wine, from the color to flavor they look amazing when served warm or cold. This recipe uses coconut milk with cinnamon and cardamom flavors for the liquid.

Savory Carrot Olive Sandwich Spread

          Cream cheese is my favorite. I love them on bagels especially toasted bagels though I know the fact that just cream cheese on our bagels may add more calories than regular. When I wanted to make my breakfast spread more healthier this is what I came into. Lets make our cream cheese way more healthier by mixing in some vegetables like grated carrots, spinach, olive and some nuts. This would help us to intake raw vegetables and less amount of cream cheese.

Chicken Bones and Vegetable Soup

       I am a mom of a 3.5 year old. It is very tough for me to serve chicken recipes for my little one with bones (Tandoori chicken with drumsticks is an exception though). I buy whole breast from a fresh meat store which is deboned. I request them to pack those bones along with the breast for making this simple and yummy chicken bones soup. This is a quick recipe with ingredients in your home available anytime. Serve them with a slice of bread. A bowl of comfort for the snow showering winter day.
