The Tame Goose Chase Scavenger Hunt

Similar to the Valentine’s Day Dessert Crawl, Time Out or Paprika lab Ideas, planned an event called the Tame Goose Chase Scavenger Hunt. Fellow blogger Everything on a Plate (my cousin) and I decided to try out, along with her husband and his brother. While I had done the dessert crawl in Powai, she did…

Spicy Parmesan Shrimp Pasta

It’s the sort of thing I’d whip up in a hurry for dinner, or a light lunch. Chances of you having most if not all the ingredients in the house is quite high so it’s a sort if no sweat recipe. It’s also the kind of recipe in which you don’t have to adda certain…

Spaghetti Carbonara

I’ve made this for years, but this recipe is a new one I tried. I originally saw the recipe on one of Nigella’s show and have made it that way for years. But this recipe is mix between hers and Jamie Oliver’s. For the spaghetti: Bacon Spaghetti 3 egg yolks 120ml cream Parmesan Cream Cook…

Chicken Salad with Spinach and Bacon

Since I haven’t done much of savoury so far, I thought I’d start now. This is a simple salad which takes no time at all. It’s the kind of thing I’d put together in the middle of the night and rightfully so since I got the recipe from Nigella’s Forever Summer book. It also works…

Pork and Beef Burger with Hassleback Potatoes and Slaw

Something perfect to make at a barbecue this summer, an amazing burger with some hassleback potatoes and slaw. It’s really simple to put together and make. I did it for a bunch of people coming over on the weekend, and it was really simple. I didn’t put each burger together and serve, but instead served…

Caramel Mousse

I can’t think of a way to actually start this post or describe the dessert other than it’s really yummy, so I’m just going to get into it. For the mousse: 1 cup whipping cream 60ml double cream 1/2 cup sugar 3/4tsp gelatin 1/2tbsp vanilla Sea salt to taste Whip one cup of the cream…

Creme Caramel

An all time favorite and super easy to make. And I’m not talking about the box version you get in the market that comes ready with the caramel and all you have to do is add milk. I’m talking about using 4 ingredients and spending less than 10 minutes putting it together. For the creme…

Creme Brulee

My absolute favorite thing ever. I have eaten three of these in the last 24 hours, since making them and am really trying to stop myself from eating the last. It’s surprisingly easy to make and doesn’t really take too much time. For the creme brulee: 290ml cream 1 vanilla pod, or some vanilla bean…

Chocolate Chip Muffins

There are a variety of different muffins in the world, but my absolute favourite is a chocolate chip muffin. It’s one of the pastries I pick up in a breakfast buffet in a hotel, or for a quick breakfast before school. The recipe used is almost the exact same as the lemon, poppy and flax…

Mint Chocolate Chip Cake

Another cake! This time a mint chocolate chip one. The inside is a wonderfully soft chocolate cake while the frosting is a simple, slightly minty buttercream. For the cake: 2 cups castor sugar 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour 1 cup cocoa powder 1 1/2 tsp baking powder 1 1/2 tsp baking soda A pinch of…

Devil’s Food Cake

In honor of the birthday of one of my favorite people ever, I thought I would share a cake recipe. I’ve made plenty of devil’s food cakes before, the Betty Crocker one, and I can honestly say that this tastes exactly the same if not better. For the cake: 180g butter 290g sugar 3/4 cup…

Chocolate Roulade

When I first read chocolate roulade, the only thing I could picture was a chicken roulade but a chocolate version, so maybe a swiss roll. But when I read the recipe for Leiths Techniques Bible, I learnt that its like a swiss roll, but is in fact a fallen souffle. The recipe is a little…
