After starting my paleo diet, the one thing I crave for is watermelon. Being in a weight loss diet, even fruits are prohibited, but if you are in for a life style change, then there is no issue with eating fruits. And for this summer, water melon can be the best fruit. So many times I see this combination of feta cheese and water melon, I used to wonder how it would taste like. And one fine day I had both the home made feta and some water melon and thought why not try it.

Yey! September is here and it is time for another mega Blogging Marathon.September is a month I love the most as both my blog baby and hubby have birthdays. And another reason is that it is a month of non stop blogging fun. Srivalli, the leader of this amazing group comes up with various themes for every marathon and for the month long marathon the themes become quite interesting. For this mega marathon, there are five themes, a theme for a week. Are you excited? Read on to know more about the theme.
The Bread Baker’s Monthly challenge is here again. I have started taking part in this group challenge from last month. Every month, a host decides on a theme and all the members bake a bread according to that theme. This month’s host is Pavani of Cook’s Hide Out, and she chose the theme Breads Made With Summer Bounty. Any fresh vegetable or herbs are included. For us herbs are one of the ingredients which is available any time of the year. So I decide to use fresh coriander leaves in my bread. As the bread can be yeast based or chemically leavened, my choice for this month’s theme was biscuits. Biscuits are like quick breads which use baking powder and baking soda for leavening and uses generous amounts of butter. For the cheese part, I used up my home made feta cheese (recipe coming soon on blog) which turned out far better than the store bought cheese. The biscuits had a nice crispy crust and soft buttery crumb and as there were herbs and cheese they were tasty with out any spread or side dishes.
Do you love cheese? Then these cute cheesy bites will surely tempt you. I saw this recipe while I was searching for Greek dishes. They added so many cheeses in it, but I had only feta and mozzarella at hand. So I tried using both. Last time when I visited Chennai, I bought home a 200 gm bar of Feta cheese. It is quite expensive. So after making two dishes, I was left with 1/2 a cup of crumbled feta which was asking me to use it up. I felt that this recipe is perfect to use up all the left over cheese. Feta is quite salty and so I didn’t use any salt in the recipe. The recipe is quite easy to put together but still I had some problems. But somehow I managed to solve all my problems and create this absolutely delicious crispy crusted soft textured bites. Whether you eat it hot or at room temperature, it tastes amazing. But some may not like the flavour of feta. My hubby is one, so he didn’t like it. Try this only if you are a fan. You will love it.
