Seven Attempts by Saionton Basu

Book

Hello there, peeps! Hope you’re all having a decent week considering the not so wonderful things happening around the world.

Well, today’s post is not about food or a recipe. It is about a book. Nope. We amateur (read: wannabe) cooks are not (at least yet) coming out with a cookbook. That is still sometime and some more experience away. This post is about a book a dear friend of mine is releasing soon. I couldn’t think of a better way to boast about how cool my friend is. After all, he’s going to be famous! 😉

Orange Cardamom Yogurt Cake

Orange Cardamom Cake

Well, it’s just been a terribly long time you saw us around the blogosphere. No stories this time around. We’ll jump right into some orange cardamom-y goodness! We thought this would be a good way to break the ice and distract you from our real (read: lame) reasons for being MIA. So, some of you who still follow us on Instagram must remember that this delicious chai time cake made its first appearance on social …

Sugar free Baby Smash Cake

Sugar free Baby Smash Cake

Hello everyone, this is Aditi checking in for the CeeBees. Yeah, we’ve not been around for a while now despite my many declarations of wanting to blog and be around more often. I think I could/ should (you decide) now write a post on how to take countless blogging hiatus (or hiatuses, I am still researching on the actual existence of the plural form of hiatus, any views?) and excuses to make on your return …

Healthy Berrylicious Whole Wheat Crepes with a Greek Yogurt Filling

Healthy Berrylicious Whole Wheat Crepes with a Greek Yogurt Filling

Yesterday, in 2007 the final episode of Gilmore Girls was aired. It was only 7 years later that I started watching what is now my favorite TV show ever! EVER. Period (psstt..judge me all you want). So, very recently I completed watching all 7 seasons and since then I am having withdrawal symptoms. The Mr. doesn’t understand this but to my utmost delight he took me to Stars Hollow (for those who don’t know, Stars …

Homemade Granola

Homemade Granola

On one cold winter morning in the hills somewhere in Ohio in a beautiful little inn, we had the best granola ever (along with the best ever breakfast muffins). Both N & I love our granola flaky and for lack of a better word not chunky. This granola was perfect. The chef would obviously not tell us the recipe and so a year later we went back to the same inn to eat the same …

Crispy Karela (Bitter Gourd) Stir Fry

Karela Stir Fry

We are food bloggers but we eat normal everyday food too! You wonder why I started this post with such an odd comment? No. Not because we’re cooking bitter gourd today.  Let me tell you why. I think there is this expectation the world has from us food bloggers that we cook and eat exotic food every single meal of our life. I am not sure if many of my blogger friends hear this comment …

Whole Wheat Brownies and a Story

Whole Wheat Brownies

Oh.. I did see some of you roll your eyes already! Yes, we’re back. Again. We periodically disappear. You think- we’re back again with some more lame excuses to explain our unannounced absence? Well, to be honest, I have been writing this post for a really long time… err.. in my head! I have been telling myself every day that today will be the day when thoughts are put in words and published. And today, …

Spicy Peanut Chaat

Spicy Peanut Chaat

Spicy Peanut Chaat- a childhood snack recreated! I remember having some version of this as a kid and remember loving it too. Of late, I have been looking for healthy ways of dealing with my post-lunch/ pre-dinner hunger pangs. So one evening, to stop myself from indulging in the not-so-good-for-me snacks I decided I am going to go nuts about peanuts! Bad one, yeah?

Mini Chocolate Tarts

Mini Chocolate Tarts

Almost every food blogger has a little thanksgiving story or a post or a recipe on their blog. We have ours too and it has nothing to do with pumpkin!! Atleast not yet. I promise, there will be a pumpkin related post too…soon.  As always, much late. But that’s ok. We do things at our own pace around here. So would you believe if I told you we made these chocolate filled beauties? Well, we …

Strawberry Cake

Strawberry Cake

Some of you must remember these beauties from our Instagram feed from a few weeks months ago. Opps.. It’s been there way too long without a recipe especially if I have already made it more than once. But then it’s never too late for fresh strawberry cakes, is it now? This is no fancy schmancy cake- just a classic slightly adapted Martha Stewart vanilla cake topped with tart berries and baked to a light golden …
