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…

Celebrating 800 Followers with Indian Motichoor Laddoo!

800 FOLLOWERS!!!!! Gosh, I can’t believe it!! In my mind, I keep on hearing the conversation between hubby and me before I started afoodiehousewife…. Hubby- “You do so much of baking and stuff….why don’t you start a food blog? So many people are doing that nowdays.” Me- “Ho Ho! Who on earth will be interested…

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…

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…

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…

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…
