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

Vanilla Ice Cream

To start off the week of the icies, I thought I’d do a simple vanilla ice cream. Its summer and the perfect thing to cool you down in the heat. This recipe is from the Leiths Technique Bible. I haven’t adapted it or made any changes. It’s as is. The only difference is the churning…

Vanilla Cupcakes with Lemon Frosting

Day 2 of this little adventure, and I’m in love with lemon. Something I love during the summer is anything lemony. So I decided to go with a simple vanilla cupcake with lemon frosting. The recipe worked out really well in terms of flavour. However, Bombay is currently 35C and I don’t have an airconditioner…
