Breakfast in Bed – Mother’s Day

Its Mother’s Day this Sunday and as cliched as it may be, breakfast in bed is the ideal thing to do for her. On countless mornings your mum has woken up and prepared a meal for you to either eat fresh, or pack and take. Whether its before school, early in the morning for a…

Savoury Smores

A couple of days ago I did a post on black olive and rosemary sables. As wonderful as those biscuits taste on their own, they taste even better when turned into some delicious smores. When you hear the word smore, your brain instantly goes to gooey marshmallows and melted chocolate between crackers. Imagine if instead…

Black Olive and Rosemary Sables

I’ve been working with a lot of sugar lately, and so I definitely needed some salt in my life. I’m one of those people that loves salt. Like I actually like eating salt, and these sables, are ideal for someone like me. The soft buttery texture of the biscuit, with some crushed rock salt, and…

Devil’s Eggs

Happy Easter Weekend everyone! I’m sure everyone is tucking into some delicious Easter eggs, and treats settling in for some down time this long weekend. If you’re like me however, you’re probably thinking about all the delicious Easter food you can make and devour with friends and family. This year, I decided to make Devil’s…

Homemade Granola Bars

So I tend to skip meals now days, due to my work schedule and the hours I keep. Which means when I do get a chance to eat, it needs to be something that’s relatively healthy, and also tasty. And these granola bars fit the bill perfectly. The bars are really really easy to make,…

Tomato, Mushroom and Chorizo Tarts

A few weeks ago, a friend of mine got a me bag of boar’s head chorizo from Europe (I don’t know exactly where from). But it was honestly one of the most amazing slices of charcutiere I have eaten in a long time. I just knew I had to figure out a way to incorporate…

Cucumber and Squid Salad

If you go through my recipes from the last few months, you’ll notice that I seem to be spending a lot of time on Epicurious.  Yes, a lot of the ingredients on there, are not easily available, but that’s exactly why I play around with the recipe. The minute I saw this, I knew I…

Candy Heart Mini Cakes

Happy Valentines Day you guys! I hope everyone is doing something fun. If you haven’t come up with a gift for your significant other just yet, I have something super simple for you to make. Most people try doing something special by cooking an elaborate meal or going out for a nice dinner. But if…

Pancake Board

I know it’s not the weekend and you definitely don’t have time to put together something this elaborate, however, the weekend is near (well not really, but we can dream), so maybe you can plan to invite a few friends over this Sunday and have a beautiful breakfast. In honour of Pancake Day tomorrow, I…

Strawberry Pies

Happy Pie Day you guys!! I hope you guys are filling your day with some scrumptious pies, be them sweet or savoury. I’m a savoury pie person, but since the strawberries available are so amazing, I knew I had to make a delicious strawberry pie. Rather than making one large pie, I decided to make…

Strawberry BBQ Chicken Wings

Yes, you read that right. No it’s not a typo. While I know that most BBQ lovers are going to despise me for doing this, I have to say that it tastes quite nice. You’d think from the name that the sauce is sweet and very dessert-like. But its really not. The strawberries help make…

Strawberry and Cucumber Salad

Strawberry season is here!!!! For the rest of the world strawberries are a summer fruit, but here in India, its season is the winter. India’s temperatures are quite warm, making it difficult for berries not just strawberries to grow in the heat. India’s “winter” which is 20C in parts of the country makes it ideal…
