Homemade Funfetti cupcakes

I am a serious cake lover and adore everything and anything that has to do with funfetti, sprinkles , cake batter and cookie dough! If it were upto me, I would add sprinkles to everything  possible, can you blame me? Surprisingly, they are not only popular with kids but adults also have fond memories of enjoying…

Baked Salmon with Pesto and Roasted Vegetables

Baked Salmon with pesto and roasted vegetables is a healthy dish made with simple ingredients and is a perfect weekday night meal. But before we dive into the recipe and method I would like to say that this is my first time cooking this fish and there were a series of questions that went through my mind…

Mixed Berry Pound Cake

There is a special comfort in knowing that you are stocked up with fresh seasonal berries for the summer.  Honestly, I get a little carried away whenever I see them in the supermarket and end up buying more than necessary. Can you tell? I am a berry hoarder and that is the reason you are seeing…

Stuffed Peppers

This is the kind of food I throw together when I do not have much going on in the fridge. This happens more often than I would like as I am a sucker when it comes to making grocery lists. I overestimate my ability to memorize things and then end up forgetting majority of them. But…

Cappuccino Chocolate Cupcakes

Though I do not remember the last time I made chocolate cup  cakes,  I do remember the first time I made them, and boy it was a disaster! As Mother’s Day is just around the corner, I would like to share a small story about my first cupcake with my mom. I was 10 years…

Lasagna

Do you remember what it was like to be 8 years old?   I came across a show called “Kids baking championship” the other day and I was in complete awe! Those kids were whipping up cheesecakes, cookies and cream puffs like its no big deal! When I was 8 years old I could barely put…

Eggless Strawberry Pancakes

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and it is going to be  a Sunday! Honestly, I am far from buying into the whole Valentine’s Day thing with greeting cards, gifts and over the top V-Day gestures. I think it is commercialized and catered more towards high school crowd and teenagers. 😉 I say this…

Lemon Butter Chicken

Now that January is over, it is safe to say everyone is getting back to their old 2015 self. Just Kidding! It is great to be able to stick to your new diet resolutions but as far as I am concerned, my ship has sailed long time back. I try to substitute rich ingredients with healthier…

Veggie Pizza Muffins

Cooking and baking are one of my few passions but because of that I always end up making more food than necessary which leads to lot of leftovers.  My favorite way to use up left overs is to add cheese to (almost) everything! Whenever I think of cheese & leftover veggies , I think of pizza…

Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Ganache

Any food that includes Chocolate makes me happy! So, it was only fitting to kick start the new years eve with a decadent chocolate cake. I have baked this cake three times in the last month for different events and every single time, it has turned out beautifully.  I can’t get over how simple this recipe is…

Cranberry-Orange Bundt Cake

It’s my Mom’s Birthday! And guess who is responsible for the cake…? My mom is not a huge fan of heavy frosting or any cream toppings, so decided to make a simple sugar glaze on top of this CRANBERRY-ORANGE BUNDT CAKE. A little side note ,  just add about a tablespoon of fresh orange juice to the…

Blueberry Muffins

It is interesting to read how Bollywood celebrities land themselves into a web of controversy. Especially, a certain veteran actor of ‘Lagaan’ and ‘Ghajni’ fame.   As soon as the comments were made,  social media was abuzz with criticism and hate. On one hand I do feel that celebrities need to be politically correct during…
