Caffeine Free Cherry Cola

Like the blueberry milk and strawberry milk recipe this recipe for cherry cola is also from The Sneaky Chef . Cherry cola is made at home by combining equal parts cherry juice and sparkling water.

Too much consumption of any soda is definitely not good, but this homemade cherry cola is an excellent alternative for sugary sodas. At least we can consume it without the risk of caffeine overdose and sugar rush.

Barley Yogurt

Yesterday we had lunch in an Indian Restaurant.  Whenever we have lunch buffet, the following evening, we just have either oatmeal,  cracked wheat kanji (porridge) or plain yogurt rice for dinner.  This time I wanted to try something else and was browsing Jai and Bee’s blog.  I’m very glad I did that,  because I found an excellent recipe for Barley Thayirchadam.  It’s pretty much the regular South Indian yogurt rice, but prepared with barley instead.  This was totally new to me.  I use barley only in soups.  My husband is a big fan of barley.  Whenever I make soup he keeps telling that I should have increased the quantity of barley.  So I wanted to try this recipe atleast for his sake.
