Sparkling watermelon drink

The interesting thing about this recipe is that there are no particular measurements for ingredients. Assemble it with all the ingredients as you like,your choice. And of course there is always scope for improvisations. So I am giving a basic idea,after that you are on your own. Ingredients: Diced seedless watermelon Carbonated water/soda water Wooden…

Refresh Yourself!

Month of summer..heat at it’s peak, excitement at it’s peak, worries at it’s peak (both in one sentence!😐 ). Actually former one for us and later one for our parents especially mothers, when we used to be school going children and summer holidays was a wish that had came true. Full one month of holidays..our…

L.D.I.3 : Baguette

I know, Baguettes are supposed to be long but I made these small baguettes because it is easy to make sandwiches out of them. Handling them becomes an easy task. The french say that it is always best to buy two baguettes because one is always half eaten by the time it arrives home. No…

L.D.I. 1 : Mantovana bread

Let’s ‘DOUGH’ it!

The smell of freshly baked bread transports me to the small bakery run by my friend’s father. We used to visit it ‘frequently’,out of curiosity and greediness😜(hey..don’ t judge me!I was little).I can still picturise the rooms filled with sweet and yeasty aroma, cupcakes stacked on the trays, breads in their moulds waiting to go…

‘Toffee Banana’ – A Treat

The biggest obstacle in trying out a new recipe is not the difficulty level of that recipe, oh!no..not even that you don’t get enough time;it is the availability of the ingredients on hand and the equipment. Leave out equipment as we know how to ‘jugado’ everything. But for ingredients we have to wait for our…

Carrot Muffins..yummy!

Nothing special.. It’s just that I have bought new sets of measuring spoons (yay!) and had some carrots in fridge. So I decided to make carrot cake..carrot muffins to be precise. Sometimes I become too judgy about the food thinking how will it taste. But it turned out to be a good thing,because that is…

My “complete” shopping bag 

A round of superstore of your choice and in the end at the billing counter you see in your trolley(baskets can’t take it😝 ) .. “how come this is possible?”AGAIN!! Those rigorous efforts to defeat my taste-buds and time spent in making diet charts just went for a toss.There are some items which I try…
