Wicked Espresso Cheesecake Brownies!

I’ve said this time and again…even though I enjoy cooking almost everything under the roof, baking is what I actually love the most as a cook. It soothes me on choppy days and on the days that are dull, baking also somehow manages to lift up my spirits like a few other things do. It’s…

Tropical Pineapple Ice-cream!

Pineapple is one of those intimidating fruits, with which I have the least experience! Let alone cooking with it, I have never even eaten a decent amount of Pineapple in my life. The only time I remember eating it was when as kids, me and my sister would get Pine-apple-flavored pastries from the bakery that…

Summery Fruity Slush Mocktails!

It’s supposed to be Spring in most parts of the world, including ours….but warm temperature is far, far away from arriving here in Dublin! It was around 6 degree C here today, and it was a good day for us by Ireland’s weather standards. All my friends and family back in India are making me…

Sweet N’ Chocolaty Nutella Easter Egg-Nests!

I always know when Easter is approaching from the cute, fluffy bunny ears that start cropping all over the place as the holiday comes near. They are on the hair-bands, on chocolates, on cookies, on the little cane-baskets at the supermarket and I swear, just yesterday I saw little bunny ears on a charming elderly…

Hearty Chicken & Mixed Veggie Pie… Made from scratch!

Now that this is out of my system, we can proceed……… Hey guys!! Yes, finally I got brave enough to make my own pastry crust and I am ecstatic that it…

Zesty Citrus Custard tarts with home-made Rose Jelly!

It’s Valentines week and it seems that all of a sudden, every shop in our little village has filled with red roses and puffy hearts and fluffy teddy-bears! We stopped by the flower shop the other day, and where it is usually a very quite corner of a busy road, this time it was buzzing…

Adorable Apple & Cinnamon ‘Rose’ Tarts!

Happy Monday foodies! (If there is even such a thing…) This week’s theme for the #FoodieMonday #Bloghop was a challenging one! The name “3 ingredient recipe” is self-explanatory. We were only allowed to use THREE INGREDIENTS for making a nice, delicious dish. When I started thinking around the idea, it turned out to be more…

Flamboyant Eggplant Parm Bruschetta!

Hey guys! How is everyone doing on this very very cold morning? Well, at least it’s extremely cold here in Dublin right now. If you are reading this from one of the warmer regions of the planet, let it be known that I am insanely jealous of you. This week has been a crazy one…

Grandma’s Signature dish- ‘Til-Bugga’- A Sesame-seed dessert!

There is definitely some sort of magic in grandmothers’ hands, that can make the plainest of foods tasty and appealing to the most finicky of eaters. We all call my grandma as ‘Naniji’, and how ever much I try, I just can’t beat the taste of her home-made food. She is a strict vegetarian to…
