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…

The Chicken

The chicken. The show stopper in your Christmas dinner. It has to be beautiful, golden, crispy on the outside, moist inside. It just has to be all these things to help make Christmas even more perfect. When I was actually cooking the chicken for this post, I had a relatively eventful afternoon. You’ll find out how soon. Before you…

The Accompaniments

We’re almost there guys! 3 days to Christmas! You should be almost ready with all your ingredients for Christmas dinner! Besides having a main meat dish (I chose Chicken), you’ll need a number of accompaniments to go with it. I did four different sides, all of them annoyingly easy to do. Let’s be real there’s…

Santa’s Belt Cake

Now, this may look like any other cake. Plain simple red velvet cake. But just you wait. There’s a little surprise inside. Be warned, this cake is massive. MASSIVE! It’s not super easy to make, but it is easy enough. You will need three layers of my red velvet cake and one layer of my…

Christmas Tree Cupcakes

For me, one of the best parts about Christmas is getting to decorate my Christmas tree. I wanted to incorporate food into a Christmas tree. After spending hours on Pinterest, I found was Christmas tree cupcakes. These cupcakes are probably the easiest things I made for Christmas. They are green velvet cupcakes with a simple…

Miniature Gingerbread Houses

Yes, I made two gingerbread things this year. I may have gotten carried away. But its Christmas so that sort of happens. Anyway, as I browse Pinterest for ideas, I noticed that a lot of people were doing mini gingerbread houses to put on their mugs. It acts as the perfect snack when you have…

Gingerbread Tipi

One of my favorite things to do at Christmas is make and decorate a Gingerbread House. I normally do a traditional one, covered with sweets and marshmallows. This time, however, I decided to switch things up. My favorite aspect of a decorated tree is making it look snow covered. Mumbai, however, doesn’t experience snow which means…

Planning Your Christmas

It’s finally December! I’m so flipping excited. In comparison, to the rest of the world, my Christmas is very subdued. My family isn’t Christian or anything so we don’t really celebrate Christmas, however, it is one of my favorite times of the year. The weather is all snugly and cold, you favorite sweaters are out,…
