Sesame crackers and Pencil drawing

Yesterday’s snack time was pretty interesting.We had few sesame crackers and mixed fruit smoothie.We have a hard core fan of Alton Brown at our house(who else than my DH..LOL). Here are his recipes with slight variation.

Sesame crackers:

Sesame seeds – 1/4 cup
Poppy seeds – 1/4 cup
Wheat flour and all purpose flour ratio = 1:1 (Here I’ve taken 4 oz each)
Olive oil – 2 tbs
Salt – 1 tsp
Baking powder – 1 tsp


1) Mix all the dry ingredients and whisk them thoroughly.Add olive oil and blend it through out the dough.

2) Add enough water(approx 4 oz) and knead the dough well and let it rest for 10-20 mins.

3) Roll the dough to a thin sheet and cut as per your choice and lay them on the baking sheet.

4) Bake them at 450 F for 3-4 mins on one side and another 2-3 mins on the other side.Let them cool down completely and then you can store them in air-tight container.

Crunchy crackers are ready…

Mixed fruit smoothie:

You can consider any berry or fruit for this smoothie.Here i have used mango,peach,strawberry,blueberry and raspberry.Use half cup of milk and half cup of plain yogurt.Blend all these along with half spoon of brown sugar.You may skip the sugar part if you want.Easy and healthy mixed fruit smoothie is ready to serve.

Past two weeks i was trying few pencil drawings. This actually started from the day when my friend gave me a book on Drawing by Giovanni Civardi.I didn’t know that i can draw.All i did was exactly replicate what he did.And this fish below is the first ever try on my own.Prob you guyz should tell me how good these really are?!?!
