The Best Winter-Special Minestrone soup!

Hello Foodies, I hope that weather at your end of the world is nicer than ours, because here in Ireland, winter is far from over. Every time it seems that the days are getting warmer, we are hit by another cold wave and freezing winds which tell us otherwise. The silver lining is that the…

Mind-blown: Chicken Tikka Pasta!

Don’t you just love it when the cooking experiments work brilliantly!!  Last night, I made some delicious Chicken tikka Masala, and instead of pairing it with rice, I decided to use it as a sauce for Pasta on a hunch. Topped with some roasted mixed vegetables and lots of parmesan cheese……. and Voila! Indo-Italian spice-fest…

Delightful Biscuit Pizzinis!

Happy Monday folks!! (Cummonnn…we might as well get it over with!) 😉 Today’s recipe is a very special one as it has stuck with me for ages since I first had it. It was at my now best friend’s birthday party when we were teenagers. Her mom served these standard Marie biscuits that you get…

Summer special: Chunky Pesto-Potato Salad!

Hi! Hi! Hiiiiiii! How is everyone??? I apologise for vanishing for a month without leaving behind a clue. Silly of me! I had actually abandoned blogging because of a very wonderful reason…my mom and my mum-in-law were both visiting us in Dublin for the past one month. So, as all of us can very well…

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…

Christmas Special: The Festive Rosemary Wreath Bread!

So, I don’t know if you guys caught my rant on my Facebook page the other day, but I had a pretty bad baking session over the past few days. Inspired by the many stunning pictures on my Instagram feed, I badly wanted to make the “Ugly sweater Cookies” for the current season drenched in…

Cheesylicious Pizza Bites!

I am the biggest fan of all things cheesy, yummy and ‘unhealthy’. Why oh why, do the best things in the world have to be so fattening?? Sob! Sob! I love the Domino’s cheesy dough-balls sooo much. Each time we order a pizza, hubby begs me to order another appetizer for a change but till…

Luscious Veggie Bolognese Tagliatelle pasta!

I know! I know! I knowwww!!! I do know that traditionally, Bolognese or Ragu is supposed to be meat-based….but see, the thing is, that I don’t eat beef or pork! So, what if I substitute the minced beef with loads of veggies and let the recipe for a bolognese sauce remain as it is…eh?? I…

Favorite Comfort Food- Cheesy Veggie Pizzaaaa (Made from scratch!)

Gloom descends on our house today….my feet don’t feel like surfacing from inside the blanket and touching the floor….. India lost to Pakistan in the finals of Champions’ Trophy yesterday. India vs Pakistan in cricket is always crazy intense and this time, we have lost to our neighbors after enjoying a glorious winning streak of…

Crunchy & Aromatic Basil Pesto Pasta!

Who doesn’t love Pasta? I will be forever thankful to Italy, for bringing these pretty shapes of awesomeness in our lives. I love all types of pasta- spaghetti, penne, tagliatelle, ravioli, carbonara, bolognese, pesto….all of it! My husband, on the other hand, who is the staunch lover of ‘ghar ka khana’ (home-cooked Indian food), 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…

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…
