The October issue of Bon Appetit Magazine has a wonderful little page about compounds with some really creative ideas. Try a pat of the Herb-Lemon on steaks or salmon straight from the grill or over veggies, and the Bacon-Bourbon over your waffles!
BUTTER COMPOUNDS from Bon Appetit, October 2011
Herb-Lemon Zest Butter Put 1 stick of softened, unsalted butter onto a cutting board. Add 1 teaspoon of grated lemon zest and 1/4 cup chopped fresh herbs, such as tarragon, parsley, chives, and chervil. Add a pinch of salt. Chop together until everything is completely incorporated and evenly combined. Gather the mixture and spread it along the edge of a piece of parchment paper, and then roll the parchment paper over it so you can form a tight log. Twist the ends to make an airtight cylinder and chill until solid, at least 3 hours. Keep up to 2 weeks in refrigerator or 3 months in freezer. When you’re ready to use, unwrap and slice into medallions. click butter-compounds for more butter compoundsSatyamev Jayate

Yes we all are responsible for deteriorating our MOTHER EARTH's Nature
We all should come together .....to fill the gap..........
Global warming is the rise in the average temperature of Earth's atmosphere and oceans since the late 19th century and its projected continuation. Since the early 20th century, Earth's mean surface temperature has increased by about 0.8 °C (1.4 °F), with about two-thirds of the increase occurring since 1980...read more from wiki

I took the photos of Chrysanthemum (common name guldaudi) in March, 17, 2010 when they were in full bloom. Somehow i was not able to upload the pictures at that time. Now i am planning to raise them in my backyard (small place in pots). It comes in different variety and colours. It needs sun. Our University (CCSHAU) shows of these flowers are organized.
It comes in different variety and colors. Needs sun. Must have in the gardens. They come in so many varieties that for this Chrysanthemum shows are organized in our campus.

In 1960-something, in Kharkari, Haryana, there was no Food food tv channel. There was no Khana Khjana. There was no Kitchen galleries. There was no Amazon.com to help you out in the absence of these places. So, what on earth did a person do when they needed a round idly moulds with pores and there were none to be found?
Most people (and I include myself in this group) would pick another recipe. If they didn’t have all the ingredients and tools already tucked in their kitchen they could find it a few blocks away or with the click of a button. Now, I’m a big fan of easy cooking and shortcuts. I’m in love with my electric hand mixer and my non-stick bake ware. Many would argue that all the technologies and tools have encouraged a new surge of creativity and possibilities. Sometimes, I believe that’s true. But, what about the old creativity? What about that real innovation? The kind that got lost somewhere between Kitchen Aid and Cuisine art. The kind that involves cooking with the ingredients that are seasonal and available, and making substitutions if you can’t find idly mix ready to make flour or amul butter or if they forgot to fly the Cherries in from Chile. I like the creativity that involves looking at finding ways around limitations, and inspires you to CREATE.
I’ll tell you what my Moma did when she couldn’t get a idly molds to make idlies in Kharkari, Haryana. She used a pressure cooker pan. That’s right. A good old-fashioned aluminum cooker pan. The kind you probably can’t find anymore. Unfortunately, the one I did find, at Kitchen gallery, so I had to pull the idly out in pieces. It still tasted amazing.
I will post the recipe for the idly of that day later on!
Today i stumbled upon THIS inspirational blog.
Have a read!
