    on Apr 9, 2015
    Tiramisu is probably one of the most popular desserts, I get to prepare at the bakery. We go through several sheets of this multi layered marscapone filled dessert very, very quickly. I also find it one of the trickiest desserts to slice through beca...

    on Apr 3, 2015
    Remember, a couple of weeks ago when I asked you guys to help me out and send in my name for the Saveur food blog awards nominations, well guess what, we did it! A few days ago, I received an email informing me that my blog is a finalist in the...
  • coffee hazelnut tart
    on Mar 30, 2015
    Most of yesterday was spent biking one of the trails near our home followed by copious amounts of reading, cleaning and baking. It was pretty routine, nothing out of the ordinary but then this happened! As much as I wanted to, I couldn't at...
  • indian carrot halva ice cream
    on Mar 26, 2015
    I guess, I should have called this week as "ice cream week" on the blog! First the beet one and now this bright orange carrot ice cream. As of now, my freezer looks like a haven of several brightly colored containers, one would think I'm st...
  • red beet, rose water, honey, goat cheese and goat milk ice cream
    on Mar 23, 2015
    For someone that professes to love ice cream that much, I almost shuddered when I realized I haven't made a batch in a long, long, long time. Like any devoted home ice cream maker enthusiast, I always keep the canister frozen and at one poi...
  • chai and rose fresh berry cake
    on Mar 19, 2015
    Earlier this week, I met up with the amazing Cheryl from 5 Second Rule. Cheryl is one of the nicest people I've spoken with, she is humble and kind even though she is an award winning blogger and has several cookbooks. We talked for quite a whil...
  • tandoori chicken melts
    on Mar 17, 2015
    There are times when leftovers rescue my meals. I'm hoping that's their sole existence to save time in the kitchen so that I can spend the rest of my time doing other things or not doing anything. Either way, I think of leftovers as my lifeboat. ...
  • breakfast naan skillet pizza with mustard greens and paneer
    on Mar 12, 2015
    I'm had a great time with the class audits at the culinary school. Though, I was a silent observer, it was a great opportunity to see how the classes at the school are taught, talk to students in the program and get to know the instructors a lit...

    Guys, thank you so much for all the encouraging words on the IACP nomination that you've written to me via emails and/or comments. You rock! Today, I'm off to audit a cooking class in pastry school to get a feel for things, wish me luck! Even though...
  • mini-samosa pot pies with tricolored marble potatoes and peas
    on Mar 7, 2015
    Both my hands trembled by the keyboard, for a good 5 minutes or so when I found out I had been included as a finalist in the Best Photo Based Culinary Blog category for this year's IACP awards. We were almost a few minutes from le...

    Friends, I have a huge favor to ask of you. The nominations for Saveur magazine's annual food blog awards start today and if you like my work, I would be really grateful if you could take a moment to stop by drop my blog's name in their online b...
  • rainbow chard rolls with sweet potato and chickpea stuffing
    on Feb 27, 2015
    I'm off to Disney World to attend the Food Blog Forum, meet fellow bloggers, talk about food related stuff and make new friends. I've never been to either of the Disney spots in the country so this will be definitely be a new experienc...
  • milk and pistachio cookies
    on Feb 25, 2015
    Just earlier this week, I was telling you guys about the impending doom of blood oranges going-out-of-season nightmare here but lo and behold, I checked the pot where I planted a dwarf morow blood orange tree and it's full of little flower...
  • goan style meatball subs with blood orange aioli
    on Feb 23, 2015
    I think this might just be the final blood orange post of the year for me and this blog. As per our favorite "dealer" at the farmer's market, the season is slowly coming to an end and this dream will too. This is one gift of winter, I'd like to keep...
  • spun sugar balls
    on Feb 20, 2015
    One of the best parts of my mornings is decorating all the different desserts before they get sent out. Desserts can taste spectacular but the garnishes are what really catch the eye and honestly, I feel if you're spent so much time on preparing...
  • parmesan tuiles with spicy tuna ricotta and proscuitto salad
    on Feb 18, 2015
    I decided to rearrange the furniture in the living room to make more space for a new bicycle for M (I already have one) which also involved moving my cookbook bookcase. In my mind, I don't have enough cookbooks (and probably never will) but in M's mi...
  • chocolate dipped black sesame fortune cookies
    on Feb 16, 2015
    Chinese fortune cookies though not originally Chinese in origin, are a mainstay of Chinese cuisine here in the West. But as this article in the NY Times points out, they might be more Japanese than Chinese. History and origins aside, these cooki...
  • matcha chocolate mousse cake
    on Feb 11, 2015
    At some point, I knew I would take the plunge. It was only a matter of when and where. As long as I can remember, I've loved to cook, play with flavors and ingredients, make my own mistakes and learn. But I've also been yearning to learn more about t...
  • goa and a spice plantation
    on Feb 6, 2015
    I've been meaning to get down to going through these photographs and share one of the best parts of our trip to India, our visit to Goa. This half of the trip was filled with lots of food, drink, daily trips to the beach and a day spent at a spice...
