CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES

  Its been a tough, tough few weeks. Change is good, change is needed, but change is a challenge. When in Mumbai I was raving and ranting about the dirty streets, the mad traffic, the choking pollution and dust, the rogue drivers, the incessant honking, the pot-holed roads and the hawkers and the noise…..

MINIMALISTIC MASALA POTATOES

  Hey there my Lovelies…wondering if I had fled the coop! Well, well I am back, yes back blogging but not in the same place, city or country.

For those of you who don’t thing of bread beyond the yeasted dough or a breakfast toast and butter, here is a pastry from “bread-heaven”.

The host for this month Milkica from Mimi’s Kingdom decided to challenge us with a traditional Serbian Katmer pie. Katmer pie originates from southern parts of Serbia.

LE DIABOLO- THE SUPERIOR CHOCOLATE CAKE

  This post is long overdue. Its been a month of cookies, cakes, bars and a few failed projects. On the positive note my anniversary cake has been a big hit and was lapped up in two sittings. I had no time to decorate it and the boys had no patience to wait for it…

SHORTBREAD COOKIES

  CLASSIC VANILLA & MOCHA-CHOCOLATE   Its February already. The winter chill hasn’t receded yet, but there are a few warm days in between, the New Year is new no more and resolutions are long forgotten (Hurrah!!). Don’t get me wrong, but I find that festivities are such a hype and strain at times. They…
