A Cake for Celebrations

Recipe: Brandied Peaches, Bavarian Cream and Chocolate Gateau

In our quest for the perfect life, there seems to be hardly any time to sit down with loved ones and enjoy the simple pleasures of life. We seem to be in a rush all the time. With the rising cost of living and basic amenities, I wonder if we can ever slow down.

Life would have been unbearably robotic and monotonous, if weren't for the small celebrations of milestones, anniversaries, birthdays, etc. These have become occasions when close family and friends gather together and have a good time.

And what better dessert for such welcome interruptions in our race against time than.. cake! Just perfect to celebrate the occasion, to celebrate the wonderful people and mostly to celebrate togetherness.

Here is a cake that I made for 2 very special people to celebrate their years of togetherness on their wedding anniversary.

Toasty Trials

Recipe: Tomatoes on Toast

Is it just me? Or does it happen to everyone?

Just the thought of returning home from work sends my digestive juices to over-drive.

When faced with such extreme cravings, I usually end up grabbing the first thing that I can get my hands on which is usually the store-bought packaged snacks - mostly biscuits, Indian savoury deep-fried snacks, chikki, etc. And unfortunately, most of them are high in calories.

This is one of the easy-to-make, kinder-on-the-heart and satisfying snacks that I've recently discovered - Tomatoes on Toast and it doesn't take much time to whip up.

A Time for Payasam

Recipe: Parippu Payasam / Mung bean Pudding

So many events have been happening since the last few weeks and Onam is also here that I thought it was good to celebrate it all with something sweet, something smooth and silky and something that did not involve baking.

Do I hear you ask "What events?". Well here they are
