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…

Pav Bhaji

To say that Pav-bhaji (Spicy vegetable mash with buns) is one of the most popular street foods in Mumbai is an understatement. It is a dish that has played an important role in every college going student who has lived in Maharashtra. Countless number of morning  lectures were missed thanks to the small fast food…

Strawberry + Spinach Salad

It is not always that I end up making a salad for lunch. But I had stuffed myself with so many sweet treats over the week it was definitely due. Not all  my food (read dessert) pictures  make it to Instagram 😉   This is a easy spring/summer salad, with a lot of options as to…

Overnight Oats

It is no secret that breakfast is the most important meal of the day and raise your hand if you have skipped it because you were in a hurry to leave for work or class. To all those who raised their hands and also to those who prefer to spend more time getting ready than…

Pasta in Avocado Sauce

Lately, I have been so in love with avocados that I make something avoca-dish once every week. My favorite way is to mash them up with a tiny kiss of salt, pepper and red chili flakes and spread it on a toast or tortilla and throw an egg in there too. I also like to…

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…

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…

Mango Coconut Barfi

This is the new generation of “checkers” aka “smartphone addicts”. Everyone wants to check their phone for every update. Checking for an update while someone is trying to talk to you, checking Facebook when you are at dinner in public, replying to a text while driving or posting endless selfies! I am also guilty of…

This dessert is a treat for your loved ones, friends or guests visiting your…

Pasta Arrabiata

Sometimes, when looking for inspiration for my blog I end up buying more than I intend to and convince myself that I will save one grocery store trip.  Does that ever happen with you? But this time I would like to thank this habit of mine as I was craving for a pasta and guess…
