And now back to the mundane....

Teen is in love with dips, if she could have it her way she can survive on cheese (her first second love, first being chocolate) and dips...and if it is a dip made from cheese ohhh well...the boring veggies are 'the best thing ever'. The Mr on the other hand is quite picky about dips...all my friends love my roasted pepper dip but he will eat it only if there is nothing else.

Teen was watching tele and enjoying the dip and the Mr walks in, peers into her plate - she hands him a carrot dipped.. I was waiting for, "do you have anything else..." on the contrary what I hear, " oh wow, how come she gets this, can I have some too " Well, she gets it because she laps up my dips and does not insult it...I take my dips seriously you know. lol !!

A lot of carrots and celery and crackers were consumed. I hope this love story  with dips is here to stay, both of them are eating their veggies. Both claim they are not picky eaters...ahem! They eat alright, but with drama and a lot of feed back. I don't mind indulging them...after all they are my target audience ;)

On another note, did my first food video. I can't believe I did it. Well, it was Prerna from Indian Simmer, who started the initiative. Thanks so much..Prerna, loved making it. But, the need patience for that, I swear, I would have killed myself. Hope you guys like it. No one was injured in making of this video.. ;)

Here it is....
Let me know if you guys like it :)

I think I could have made it even shorter, but I guess you can spare 2 minutes and 45 seconds from your day to watch this :)) next time - under 2 min for an easy recipe like this one.




8 oz cream cheese
1/3 cup full cream or hung curd
1 tbsp sriracha
1/2 tsp cumin powder
pink himalayan salt to taste

1/4 cup of
red bell pepper
green bell pepper
roasted corn
1/4 of thai red chili finely diced (optional)

Cilantro for garnish


Roast the corn and chop the kernel as shown in the video.

microwave the cream cheese for 30 seconds so it softens and is easy to work with .

Pour cream and sriracha and whisk to mix.

Add the mixed veggies and thai pepper, cumin, cilantro and pink salt and mix

Serve with crackers and veggies.

It's great to use in sandwiches too.

  1. Oh I absolutely love it! Love the new styling and the photos. They have turned out gorgeous! Please continue to inspire us with your new ideas, styling. We want more!!! :D

  2. Amazing attempt Simi. But I will be honest with you!
    Things I like and did not like.
    1. I am LOVING this new home-y and super simple styled photographs! Less props and styling and more food.
    2. It tells a story with the light, shadows and all.
    3. Never a fan of long video - always skip them to go to the end. Recipe which is simple like this should be under 1 minute - according to me.

    You can ignore my views as they are purely mine! :-)

    1. Dol : agree about the length, If I make more ( not sure) will not make it this long. Thanks for the feed back.

  3. Lovely pics and post. Maybe a peppy music should have been more apt. Something like Eena Meena Deeka.

  4. Simi apart from the recipe I love the music too !

  5. Beautiful is all I have to say! Always keep wanting more from your posts...


Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to browse. I appreciate all your comments, feedback and input. Hope you enjoy your stay :))
