Portobello Mushroom Sliders

On some days, I am just very lazy to post. Most days of last week were lazy which explains our absence. Also, last week we just preferred to cook & eat and skip the “click” step of our usual routine. It is so exhausting at times, especially for us “wannabe good food photographers” who try to click a decent picture or two with the so-called right props et al. I must indulge in some self-praising…

Black Pepper & Oregano English Muffin Loaf

English Muffins have been on our minds for a few days now but our current “trying to be on a low carb diet” phase was preventing us from baking it. Thankfully, Angie and Catherine decided it’s time to put us all to test and created this herb & yeast challenge. We learnt a thing or two  or three or maybe lots about working with yeast during the course of coming up with ideas to take…

We Are Back, Fiesta Friday & Strawberry Shortcake

Hello and welcome back! After a grueling two-week blog makeover period we are back with the soft opening of our brand new website. Yes- it’s still what we’d like to call a “soft-opening”. We are still putting all the bells and whistles in place and working behind the scenes to make everything look better. When we started the process a couple of weeks ago, we didn’t think it would take us this long to get…

Rhubarb Crisp

Our friends, Julia and Matt, had been raving about their family Rhubarb Crisp recipe and we were lucky to have a taste of it.

So yeah- we have a secret family recipe for a delicious tart and sweet Rhubarb Crisp which we will share with you.…

Revisiting Sautéed Garlic Asparagus

I have to admit I only had Asparagus when I moved here to the US last year. Nikhil had been raving (yes he is modest like that when it comes to food :)) about how he made his famous Garlic Sautéed Asparagus at every Thanksgiving & Christmas here at a friend’s house. I, after much resistance to try anything new, tried this version of Asparagus and oh did I love it! It’s our favorite side/ snack…

Pretzel Bagels

The best Pretzels we’ve had here are at Auntie Anne’s- an American chain of pretzel bakeries. Their pretzels are so fresh and tempting that you cannot resist them if you cross one of their bakeries. I have almost never seen any of their bakeries without a long queue. Anyway, so now that you know we like pretzels you should know we (actually N more than me) like bagels too. So we decided to attempt a…

Perfect Orange Pancake Breakfast

With oranges all around these days, we take inspiration and so we made Orange Pancakes, actually orange pancake medallions. Nothing orangey has tasted orangey enough without orange zest and that is what we added to our basic pancake recipe. 🙂 This recipe here is a pancake recipe from scratch and with basic ingredients that most of us almost always have- all-purpose flour, milk, egg, butter, baking powder, vanilla extract & orange zest! It does guarantee…

Lime Cheesecake with Lime Curd Topping

Who wants to make a super easy and super delicious cheesecake this weekend? I didn’t really like cheesecakes until I had the New York style cheesecake. Reason- the ones that I had until then were too salty for my liking. I like my desserts cloyingly sweet and just wouldn’t settle for a salty cheesecake. Then I had one in New York  and that was it. I had the best cheesecakes ever…ever! So there I was…
