Snacks for Santa…

There’s somewhat of a tradition on Christmas Eve. You leave all the Christmas lights on, set some present under the tree and place a plate of cookies and milk for Santa to eat. This time, however, why not try leaving him some chocolate chip cookies, some milk and even some carrots for the reindeers. Confused…

Melted Chocolate Truffle Cookies

I know you’ll are expecting an iced and decorated sugar cookie. But I thought as a part of the advent calendar, why not do an actual cookie. Not everyone is going to have the time to do something complicated like any of my previous posts. They are also perfect to gift to someone. These cookies…

Christmas in the Heat

I know I’ve said it before, but it isn’t cold everywhere in India during this time of the year. It’s actually pretty hot, like 30C hot. So naturally while creating this calendar I had to come up with a way of incorporating heat into these cookies.  I decided to go all out and do a…

Dip Dip Stixx

For most of the world, it’s hot chocolate weather. For India, however, it remains tea weather. Hot or cold, its always tea weather here. So if you’re in the north or the south, these cookies are perfect for you.  Just like the cookies I made in my last post, you don’t need any fancy cookie…

Let’s Spread the Joy

Just like during Diwali, everyone has a little present or box of sweets they give to friends and relatives during Christmas. Unfortunately, a lot of us spend money on these fancy food hampers or boxes of chocolates. For the second post in my Christmas Cookie Advent Calendar, I thought why not show you guys how…

Christmas Cookie Wreath

It’s finally Christmas time and I’m so freaking excited. If last year was any indication, I go all out for Christmas. Even though it’s not something we celebrate, I just love how festive you get to be, the colours, the food, the music, the movies! I think because we see so much Christmas on tv…

Rava Ladoos

Happy Diwali!!! (Imagine me saying that in a super high pitched excited voice!) My family doesn’t really celebrate Diwali, however, I still love how the entire country is all hyped up and doing these elaborate preparations for the festival. While the clothes and house decorations are only one aspect, the food you get to eat…

Claw Cupcakes

Onto everyone’s favourite part of a meal, dessert! While red velvet is normally the favourite this time of the year, I decided to do something different with some simple chocolate cupcakes. If you want to make these cupcakes using red velvet, you can check out my recipe here. While they look complicated, these cupcakes are…

Halloween Spaghetti

As I mentioned yesterday, over the next few days The Social Pill and I will be releasing some recipes, to get you guys in the spooky mood. Since yesterday’s recipe, the jalapeno poppers, was a sort of starter or appetizer, we thought why not do more of a main course today. And so, Halloween spaghetti…

Jalapeno Poppers

I’m baaaack! After taking a little break from not just posting, but also the internet, I’m back with something super cool and fun for this spooky season. In collaboration with The Social Pill and Everything on a Plate, I am releasing 4 different recipes to help you prep for the ultimate Halloween dinner. Whether it’s just…

Green Goddess Hummus with Homemade Lavash

So this is my last ‘healthy’ post as it were since this is the end of my collaboration with Pranita. In my opinion, we saved the best for the end. This recipe is super super easy, and unlike most other hummus recipes, doesn’t require tahini, making everyone’s life a lot easier. All the ingredients, except…

Dairy Free Vanilla Ice Cream

When I started brainstorming for this collaboration with Pranita, I found a lot of dairy-free ice cream recipes, and it had reached the point where I wasn’t unable to choose just one flavour myself. So I sent a list to Pranita, and she picked two. The chocolate one, and this vanilla one. We had initially…
