  • “Weekends are a bit like rainbows; they look good from a distance but disappear  when you get up close to them. ” by John Shirley. Spice crusted paneer tikka in green sauce – a quick party pleaser and an appetizer that needs no preparation and can be ready in jiffy.   For me weekends strictly means eating out, shopping, mall hopping or a long drive on country roads, sitting quietly with a book, and yes No Cooking… I do not […]
