Sesame Peanut Noodles

In this month’s edition of Taste & Create, the talented Nicole paired me with HoneyB of The Life and Loves of Grumpy’s Honeybunch. She has such an amazing blog and is quite the baker. I actually bookmarked about 10 recipes that I wanted to try, sadly knowing I could only enter one for T&C. But,…

Sago Cutlets

Sabudana or Sago pearls are very similar to Tapioca and may be easily confused for the other. But they have very distinct tastes. Sago is used extensively in Indian cooking. Until recently I didn’t know that they are mostly carbohydrates and have minimal nutritional value! On the other hand, they are delicious, especially in these…

Fun Food Stuff

I have seen some really cool bread products – for instance, Jude’s bread bowls for soup. Recently I went to a friend’s house for a BBQ and saw the most interesting bread product ever. Check it out: Isn’t that cool? It’s a bread (made in a bread machine) that has been hollowed out. The hollowed…

Vanilla Ice Cream

After seeing the Daring Bakers make ice cream, I simply had to try my hand at it. It took a lot of research, and lots of running around and lots went wrong. But the ice cream was amazing. And it’s all due to David Lebovitz! He’s a genius 🙂 I changed his recipe around quite…

Kadamba Sadam

After many days of making cookies and brownies, I couldn’t bear to “cream butter, add sugar”. I needed something savory to work with. And what better blog to turn to than Suganya at Tasty Palettes. Her recipes are amazing and her photographs are beautiful. And hers is the chosen blog this month at Tried And…

Nutella Brownies

There’s absolutely nothing to say about these brownies except that they are in one word Un-Friggin-Believable! I am on a cookie/ brownie cooking spree of my bookmarks. I have also been keeping my daughter occupied during her holidays. And today I made these with my nephew – he’s so enthusiastic and excited about cooking –…

Savory Cookies

So on Day 2 of cooking from my bookmarked cookies recipe this week, I chose savory cookies from my friend Aparna’s blog, My Diverse Kitchen. I’ve been lusting after these cookies ever since I saw it on her blog. The taste was delicious and flaky – not spicy but with just a hint of cheese…

Butter Cookies

I’ve given myself the name of Habitual Bookmarker. I bookmark so many recipes from other blogs and sites, that its getting a little out of control. If I made all the stuff I bookmarked, I’d be a happy camper, but they’ve accumulated and are threatening to hijack my computer if I don’t start paying them…
