Zucchini Fritters & Garlic-Mint Yogurt Dip

Zucchini Hash Browns & Garlic-Mint Yogurt Dip

Happy Thursday y’all!  First and foremost, shout-out to my parents for finally getting around to reading my blog! Hi guys! *virtual hand wave*  Hope that reading my posts proves that I’m able to feed myself    While on the subject of the blog, I’ve thought about adding more posts that aren’t just recipes but recommendations on kitchen items, suggestions on what to purchase for your pantry and maybe even dedicated posts to food I consume when I travel or at note-worthy restaurants.  I was struggling with this idea because: A) I’m not an expert cook or a food critic with a refined and discerning palette like, oh say- Tom Sietsema.   B) I don’t want to deviate from sharing recipes that might come in handy to someone out there looking for an easy recipe, like me. Then I thought maybe a few product reviews, travel/restaurant recommendations etc. might not be soooo bad and maybe even be somewhat helpful to anyone who wanders over to my blog.  So as a heads up, you might see a few non-recipe food posts here and there!  But to stay true to …

No Bake Nut & Chocolate Granola Bars

No Bake Nut & Chocolate Granola Bars | The Full-time Foodie

“I’m aliiiiiiiivvvvvvveeeee!!!”, says I while imitating Frankenstein.  My facebook page tells me it’s been 22 days since I last posted.  Wow that’s kind of crazy, because in my head it feels much shorter than that.  In my defense, I spent one week being a total nerd- migrating site files from one host provider to another.  Don’t worry if you don’t understand this!  It’s just a lot of technical gobbeldygook.  Then I had this no big deal trip to Iceland-   Instead of writing a looooooong post on how amazing Iceland is (which it SO is), I hope the photos I chose for the slideshow above can showcase the amazingness. If you love the great outdoors, hiking and camping- Iceland is for you.  You’ll enjoy the gorgeous changing landscapes made up of mountains, waterfalls, black sand beaches and so so much more.  It is one of the most breath-taking countries I’ve had the pleasure of visiting so far.  I also tried to share most of our food/drink experience to keep with the theme of my blog and in all …

Fish Tacos with Lime-Cilantro Crema

Fish Tacos with Lime-Cilantro Crema | The Full-time Foodie

Happy Friday everyone!!!  I have to say that I’m looking forward to my weekends more now that summer is ACTUALLY here.  Perhaps it’s not here to stay just yet but I’m going to enjoy the 80 degree weather this weekend, thank you very much!   I’m also excited to be in DC this weekend since I’ve been traveling literally every weekend- though all of my travels were for fun and I got to see a lot of friends and family I haven’t seen in ages, so I’m very thankful for that Pardon the posting of so many seafood dishes of late!  Traveling on weekends definitely makes it harder for me to meal prep and cook during the week.  I’m usually pretty tired to grocery shop after a trip.  Sometimes even with groceries at home, I’m too tired to make anything because I’m still reeling from the flying and the break from my routine.  So the recipe I’m sharing today is actually quite awesome for those weeks where I want to put the least amount of effort without compromising the quality of and …

Quick Fridge Jalapeño Pickles

Quick Fridge Jalapeño Pickles | The Full-time Foodie

Picklessssssssss!!!!!!!!!   Can you tell I love pickles?  I love pickles of all kinds, I hardly discriminate unless they’re sweet (I’ll spare you yet another rant on my lack of a sweet tooth with certain things).  I grew up on Indian pickles and most specifically my mom’s deeeeelish Konkani and Andhra style pickles! When I moved to the U.S., I was introduced to a whole new world of pickles.  I grew to love dill pickles, pickled olives and peppers, kimchi, sauerkraut etc.  If we have a jar of those at home, they wouldn’t last more than a few days.  Yeah, I kind of have a problem! A couple of years ago Suril tried his hand at homemade dill cucumber pickles and they were actually pretty yummy!  He even succeeded in canning them at home (something that still scares me).  But for some reason we didn’t attempt pickles after that time.  Then recently, at Rooting DC, we attended a pickle-making session and my interest in pickling was renewed.  I also discovered that some of my favorite kinds of pickles …
