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…

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…

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…

The perfect Restaurant style Cheesy Garlic-Bread!

I made garlic-bread as a side-dish to my anniversary dinner and I couldn’t believe how identical the taste was to what we get in those fancy, Italian restaurants. This is not my recipe. I took it from the wonderful Laura-Vitale cooking channel on Youtube and except for a couple of tiny twerks here and there, it’s really her…

My Intoxicating Christmas Rum cake!

This particular cake I am extremely fond of and even the thought of it, takes me straight down the memory lane. In high school, we had a catholic teacher named Mrs. David who used to take our Economics class. She was immensely loving and motherly. It was from her that we came to know of…

Melt-in-the-mouth Lemon Sponge Cake

It was hubby’s b’day a couple of days ago and he especially demanded a lemon flavored cake this year. He is not at all a fan of cakes with icing and rather prefers flavorful sponge cakes that he can take along to the work in his lunch-box, to enjoy munching on in the afternoon after his…

Intoxicating Tea Barmbrack- a traditional Irish fruit-cake

We first had barmbrack while vacationing in the gorgeous county Kerry (Ireland) this summer. Every morning with breakfast, our B&B hostess would serve these delicious slices of fruit cake, amazing to have with tea. She told us that its a traditional Irish fruit-cake called Barmbrack, made by soaking the mixed dry fruits in tea water…

Irresistible Zebra cake with Creme fraiche frosting

I was browsing through the internet one day to pass time, when I came across this random picture of a “Zebra Cake” It looked gorgeous! When I looked up the recipe, I couldn’t believe how easy it was to make. I promptly made it the very next day and it came out absolutely perfect. When I showed it to…

Classic chocolate cake with strawberry syrup glaze

I enjoy baking cakes more than eating them. My hubby finds that hard to believe because I am a huge foodie and crazy for sweets but there is something about baking that definitely soothes me. It may be due to the fact that I whip my batter by hand instead of using the electric beater…

Delectable Blueberry and orange zest Muffins with sticky blueberry glaze.

Most of my cooking consists of experimenting! I am always playing with the leftover things in my refrigerator and have my fair share of successes as well as disasters. These muffins were one of the successful experiments. Hubby bought three packs of blueberries because of a “good deal at the supermarket” and I knew that…
