Avenger's Cake

My son's latest craze are the avengers! And he for sure wanted an Avenger's Cake for his birthday. I always bake my kids birthday cakes but this time I had no idea how to make an avenger's cake as I don't know to work with fondants so I was going to order an Avenger's Cake for him from the store. But I ended up making this cute little avenger's cake for him that he enjoyed so much, as he could keep all the little avengers and play with it!! I made the avenger's logo out of parchment paper and had him color it. He was pretty excited about cutting this cake! And he thoroughly enjoyed the little toys!!
This isn't much of a recipe but still I wanted to share this idea so someone can make a simple avenger's cake that your kids can enjoy!

3 Ingredients Vanilla Muffins

I came across this recipe somewhere in YouTube. It is such an easy and simple recipe but it does come out well. These little muffins, were soft and fluffy and all the kids loved them. And I made these into mini muffins and sprinkled some sprinkles on top which was loved all the more! The only thing I would suggest is, to add some vanilla to the batter as I could get the taste of the heavy cream used. None of the kids complained of it but I could get it and the next time I make these muffins, I will be adding some vanilla!

Methi Chapathi

Since I pack chapathi's for my kids lunch boxes, I try to to add some veggies to the chapathi dough to make it more healthy for my kids. I have already shared aloo paratha and paneer paratha, carrot paratha and carrot cheese paratha that I make for them. This methi chapathi is another one that I make often for them. I use baby methi leaves and it's a nice way to hide veggies for kids. I like adding methi leaves to my kids lunch box. Apart from these methi chapathi, I also make methi peas pulao, mushroom methi pulao.

Vanilla Cupcakes

Vanilla cupcakes are the best to bake whenever I have kids coming home. I already have a wonderful vanilla cupcake recipe that I love. That recipe uses oil and I was looking for a recipe that uses butter and I tried this one and it came out so soft and delicious! I don't always frost my cupcakes, sometimes I simply add a handful of chocolate chips and they are good to go! These cupcakes are one of my favorites!

Dark Chocolate Cake

This chocolate cake is one of my favorites! It is dark, rich, and tasty! I love the flavor combination in this recipe. The addition of a little oil along with the butter, gives a light texture to the cake. I bake this cake often and we love it!

Kashayam for cold and cough

This is a simple yet very effective drink that you can have when you fall sick with cold or sore throat. This not only relieves the cold or cough, it also helps in increasing the immunity of the body. This can also be given for small children above the age of 1 year but for small children you have to reduce the amount of pepper used.

Curry Leaves Idli Podi

Idli podi is always handy to have. During the early morning rush, instead of making chutney, it is easier to eat idli or dosa with idli podi. Every home in Tamil Nadu will have a variety of idli podi. Similarly I also have my own version of idli podi. I have already posted a few of my favorites. 
Curry leaves are full of iron and I hate to waste the curry leaves. Every time I get so many curry leaves for free and I try to use it up in some way without wasting them. This time I made this curry leaves idli podi and it came out tasty!

ABCO Juice

Everybody knows of the wonderful benefits of ABC juice which is made of Apples, Beetroots and Carrots. This juice is called a Miracle Juice due to it's many nutritional benefits. This juice has become quite popular recently. Usually people drink ABC juice but my dear friend Senthil Kumari suggested to drink this juice along with 'O', the Oranges! Adding oranges to this drink, increases the Vitamin C in the drink which helps the iron from the beetroots to get absorbed more easily and also the oranges increases the overall taste of the juice.


ABCO Juice

Some of the benefits of this juice are - it is heavily loaded with vitamins and minerals. You get Vitamin A, B1, B2, B6, C, E and K and also minerals like iron, folate, zinc, copper, calcium, potassium among others!
- It delays the aging process
- Improves vision and strengthens eye muscles
- Boosts memory
- Fights common diseases
- Slows cancer cells
- Improves complexion
- Helps weight loss
- Detoxifies the body

And many more!! Drinking this juice atleast once a week is very healthy for the body.
