Less is More: The Round-up!

(Update in April 2023: I went through the post and removed all the broken links. Alas, many blogs no longer exist)

A couple of years ago, blogger Coffee started the Monthly Blog Patrol as a way for food bloggers to cook and learn from each other's recipes. This month, 64 bloggers from all over the world took up a challenge: choose a recipe that has five ingredients or fewer and show us how less is more!

Based on the entries that I have received, I have organized the round-up in a few different categories: you can grab a hot or cold beverage to begin with, and proceed to look at a delicious list of breads, condiments, small meals and entrees, vegetables and desserts, all made using only a handful of ingredients.

  117. Dear Nupur,

    I know, I haven't tried everything or even most of the things listed on the hot stove, but I still miss not seeing any new posts!

    Hope all is well, and the blogging will resume some time soon. Perhaps with the new year (Gudhi Padwa), you might choose to come back to the hot stove!

    Best Regards.

  119. hey Nupur,

    Your recipes are cherished and you are missed. Enjoy your extended stay-away!


  120. Hi, Nupur

    When you said you were on an extended break, I didn't think it would be so long. Good luck with your work and studies... Looking fwd to seeing you back very soon as the summer is couple of months...


  121. Nupur,

    Just wanted to say that I miss your posts so much!! I keep coming back here every week, hoping for a new one and to try out a recipe you have :-) I hope you are doing well and that maybe (fingers crossed) you will be back to blogging sometime. Cheers.
