Mint choco cookies

There seem to be only two reactions to the onset of the summer holidays. Relief, for all those parents who have angels for kids. That is not me. So the other is dread, wondering how the heck to handle the two brats for another 4 and 7 extra hours respectively! I would like to blame […]

Strawberry cream cheese frosting

I am going to stop searching for recipes for dishes that have 3 ingredients. I mean when there are only 3 ingredients how tough can it be to figure what goes in, in what proportion ? I get all thrown off balance by all the references to gelatin, heavy cream, double cream, single cream (is […]

Cup cake play!

Scouring stores for cake decorations may seem a bit crazy, but hey, when you find them, they are SO worth the hunt! But I am yet to find really nice ones here in Bangalore. So if you know any stores, please do tell! In the meantime I ask friends traveling to India to bring some, […]

Strawberries and chocolate!

Without any preamble, let us get to the basics of this very basic dessert / snack / sweet tooth fix… Melt chocolate buttons or choclate cut into small pieces, over a double boiler. (Microwaving is OK, but the chocolate dries up). I love the double boiler because you can turn off the heat and leave […]

Cranberry bread-cake

What do you do when you are completely at a loose end, not  knowing where to pick up after a break… you bake. That seemed to be the only thing that would lift the inertia a little bit. And Saturday morning seemed ideal to start! And I did not figure if this was a cranberry […]

Blueberry cheesecake bars

I know! It has been forever since I posted a recipe here, innit? Blame it entirely on new and exciting stuff (well, some not so exciting, just plain old work) that’s pretty much taken over the hours of the day and the days of the week for me… This totally easy and deelish cheesecake bar […]

SugarCube, by the inimitable Sumeet!

First off, thanks to bro for introducing me to Sumeet. I’d never have known (so quickly at least!) that cupcakes to blow your mind are available right here in Bangalore. I mean, I’d have found out soon enough Sumeet and her venture Sugar Cube, has been featured in the last issue of Food Lovers. For […]

Cherry crumble

The cherry, Red. Very red. Exotic in the occident. Rumour has it that it’s a sour fruit. Very photogenic, especially when photographed with the slender stems of two cherry fruits joined at the top to form a very elegant V. Ok ok, I haven’t cooked with cherries before, so they did seem rather exotic when I […]

Cake and cup cake fest!

Dipti baked these lovelies way ago and it’s been on my to do list forever to publish! Here they are Dipti… thanks so much for sharing. They look absolutely lovely! – Anu My husband had a ‘Bake a Cake’ competition at his work place and I baked a chocolate cake along with some cupcakes for him. […]

Oreo milk shake

Another of Angad’s faves… try this with Oreos or the Sunfeast Dark Fantasy cream cookies. It’s sinful, but that’s what’s fun about it! A pack of Oreos (about 10) 3-4 scoops of vanilla ice cream A glass of milk 3-4 tablespoons of whipped cream Churn up the cookies first in a large blender. Once they […]
