Creamy, Home-made Coconut Ice-cream (Without the Ice-cream maker!)

*Accchhooooo!* Hey guys! So apparently, hearing and seeing friends and family enjoying the peak of summer back home in India, I guess I got a bit carried away with the summery mood. I plunged into Iced-teas, Mocktails, Ice-water and Ice-creams, totally forgetting that the weather is not as hot here in Ireland yet. The result- I…

Simple, Sweet, Super moist..Spiced Carrot & Apple Muffins!

  So for the past couple of months, I was suffering from what you can call as a “Cupcake baking phobia“! It involved a full batch of ruined cupcakes that I had to throw awayyyy because too many fresh strawberries had turned the batter liquidyyyy…..ughhhh! I don’t want to talk about it. Anyway, since that day, I had…

Mexican signature dish: Chicken Enchilada Bites with home-made sauce!

The best thing about having a food blog is that you are constantly looking for new recipes that you want to try out next! It is obvious that you will be trying out recipes that you and your family enjoy the most. For instance, I was recently obsessed with trying out Italian recipes, especially pasta and various sauces,…

The luxurious Pineapple Upside-Down Cake!

I think I may have mentioned this before…I had lately been on a sabbatical from doing my favorite thing in the world- baking cakes! Having a food blog is great but eating all that food by yourself, is not!! I love, love looove baking, but eating all those cakes most definitely does me no favors. Hubby and…

Gorgeous & Delicious Hasselback Potatoes!

For a chubby girl who perpetually struggles to keep her weight under check, I do have a hard time staying away from potatoes. I mean, who doesn’t love them? I cook potatoes in some form or the other, atleast 3 times a week. Hubby too worships them and thus, it is safe to say that this is…

Domino’s style Cheesy Garlic Bread-sticks…made from scratch!

So, firstly… when I say Domino’s style here, I mean Domino’s India style. I have been living abroad for almost four years now and even though we swear by Domino’s as far is pizza is concerned, I have not yet seen our beloved childhood food obsession i.e Domino’s Garlic bread sticks in either UK or…

Traditional Indian dessert- Gulab Jamuns (Soft, spongy dumplings soaked in sugary syrup!)

  Gulab jamun is easily the most beloved dessert of India! Be it Diwali or Holi, birthdays, anniversaries or any celebration, this sweet-dish is made for almost every festive occasion, in most of the Indian households. With Holi just round the corner, this is the perfect, easy recipe to try this week! Gulab jamuns are spongy, ‘melt in the mouth’ round dumplings, smothered in…

The Ultimate “melt-in-the-mouth” Fudgy Chocolate Brownies!

After hogging on too many cakes and goodies during the months of December and January (my b’day, hubby’s b’day, Christmas, New year, our anniversary…..phew!) I had decided to not do anything fancy at all for the Valentines Day this year. Infact, it’s the same story every year. By February, we are exhausted of celebrating so…

Oh-so-divine… Creamy Potato Gratin!

This was the side-dish no. 2 for my fancy Italian dinner the other night and my favorite one of the lot. I am a huge fan of white sauce. Be it pastas, steaks, burgers or most international dishes in this entire world, I love smothering them in that sinful, cheesy rich sauce. Ummm..umm..umm! Potato gratin recipe is an…

The Ultimate Comfort food- Chicken Pot Pie!

Lately I have been brave enough to venture into the scary territory of cooking non-Indian cuisine. After my Christmas dinner (roast chicken, stuffing and baked potatoes) went well without a  disaster, I straight away knew the next dish on my agenda to try….The Classic Chicken pot pie! It’s the ultimate winter food. That creamy brothy filling…
