An Orange Spread and An Award

Recipe: Orange Marmalade

I guess jam making has caught on to me like a virus.....you know ,it’s almost impossible to go back to bottled jams having enjoyed the luscious and fresh homemade varieties..... I know I have mentioned this in both my jam posts, but you see I just can’t help myself from saying this over and over!!!!!!

Apple Pied!!


Recipe: Mini Apple Pies ( Photos updated on 25 March 2017)



 As I have mentioned earlier, most of my culinary trails are usually attempts to satisfy the demands set by my fussy little eater of a daughter and sometimes even an attempt to trick her into eating something which she might not eat otherwise.
These apple pies that I had to make are yet another product of her relentless pushing and bullying!!

It’s Festive Time Again!!


Recipe: Mango Pickle




It’s the Vishu time again.
One of my favourite times of the year, back in Kerala, with the whole land glowing golden with the beautifully yellow Kani konna flowers. It’s a splendour to see the kani konna trees in full bloom with their branches laden with bunches of these beautiful yellow flowers.

A Zesty Cake

Recipe: Eggless Lemon Cake

Engrossed in one of my favourite pastimes, blog surfing, I happened to see this mouth-watering picture of a lemon cake made by the popular and talented cook/blogger Ria. I found myself ogling at the lovely cake and then all I wanted was to take a big bite into that beautiful, yellow cake.

Ezzy pezzy Cookies


Recipe: Shortbread cookies



The past 10 days weren’t the pleasantest of the days for us with our little girl down with a mild attack of pneumonia. It broke my heart to see my ever so fluttery butterfly all curled up in our couch with soaring temperatures and a clogged little chest.
