Iceland – Land of Fire and Ice

I want to end this year’s post with another fulfilling experience – our visit to Iceland and viewing the magical Northern Lights.

Kerala Style Coconut Soup (or Stew)

Winter’s here and it’s time for warm jackets, cozy blankets, and hot soup! This Kerala style coconut soup is exactly what you need to comfort your soul on cold, gloomy nights.

The inspiration for this soup is the Kerala style vegetable stew, which is commonly had with Appam. The ingredients for both recipes are similar, but the coconut milk used for this soup is watered down heavily and keeps it light.
