Pizza Sticks

Roast 'n Relish

When you’re looking for a kid-friendly, easy recipe to make, this is a recipe for you. The original recipe I saw had this as a taco stick, which would work super well to flavor the meat, and serve with salsa. However, this night Cooper was craving pizza, so we changed it up. I think the stick-shaped pizza dough would be a great vessel for any foods you like: black beans, shredded chicken, pulled pork, etc. So make this your own (and your whole family happy!)


  • 1 lb ground beef
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 package pizza dough (tube easy to use here)

  • 1 tsp garlic salt
  • Marinara sauce, for serving


Preheat oven to 425 degrees and coat a baking sheet with non-stick spray.

Cook ground beef in a skillet, seasoning with salt. Drain excess liquid.

While beef is cooking, roll…

This vegetable korma pulao turned awesome!

The preparation was the same as making a

korma,the only difference was the addition of

rice,and the cashew paste. You could use

basmati or any quality pulao rice.

As,I was running out of biriyani masala,I added

a teaspoon of biriyani essence ( which is used

for mutton biriyani). Recently I came across

this essence, and I don’t follow the instructions

in the bottle as I feel the smell is strong , so only

a teaspoon .Only a teaspoon gives out a nice

aroma !

Now to the recipe


250 gm basmati rice

1/2 cup cauliflower florets

1 carrot

1 potato

1 tomato

Beans/ peas ( I used soaked green channa)

1 tblsp ginger garlic paste

1 tsp garam masala powder/biriyani masala

Few whole garam masala ( saunf,cinnamon,cloves,black cardamon,sea moss,star anise )

1/4 cup curd

1/2 tsp turmeric

1 onion sliced

Anzac Cookies

ANZAC stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps. Anzac Day is a National holiday down under commemorating Australian and New Zealanders that served. As for the Anzac cookie, it is debated whether they were baked by women to send to the men fighting, or if they were baked and sold by women to raise money for the war effort.

Either way, they’re so good that my husband hides them on the kids so he can have them all himself.

mix butter and allow to sit for minimum 2-3

hours or overnight.
