Baking more Cookies

Recipe: Crispy Oatmeal Cookies(Adapted from Joy of Baking)

If you had been reading my older posts, you would be aware of my cookie crazy daughter and hubby. So baking cookies are always a joy for me.
It's certainly a wonderful feeling to watch your loved ones devour on the food you make in complete relish. Well, these cookies were made quite some time back, but couldn't put them up due to many other hold ups.

Cookies that melt in the mouth !!

Recipe : Mexican wedding cake/Russian tea cake/Snowball

Hostel life,though had its sour and bitter sides , has been one of the best days of my life. I am sure everybody who has lived in a hostel for at least a short span will surely agree to this.

I know, hostel means, living out of suitcases for may be 4-5 years, using common and not so clean baths, sleeping on empty or half filled tummies and worst, eating stuffs that you would never have had otherwise, petty fights and misunderstandings with buddies and roomies and yes, the awkward patch ups.

A Seedy Delicacy

Recipe: Chakkakuru,Manga and Unakka chemmeen Curry (Kerala Style Jack fruit seed,Raw Mango and dried shrimp gravy)

I am sure my earlier posts give enough evidence of my intense love for traditional Kerala cuisine and this one is just a mere extension of that undisputed adoration.
Well, I had made this quite a long time back and now getting this post ready makes me crave for more but unfortunately I am left with no Jack fruit seeds.
A few weeks back a close friend of ours gave me some jack fruits, all cleaned and ready to eat. All I had to do was de-seed them and eat, and luckily for me neither my girl nor my hubby are great fans of this fruit :)
After devouring the fruit, my eyes fell on the seeds and then all I could think of was my mom's mouthwatering Chakkakuru Curry. It's been ages since I had some..... And then I was missing my mom like crazy too :(
