HOME SWEET HOME!!! No Longer Hibernating (Yawwwwn)

Dear Foodies & Friends, I’m home for the holidays and it feels amazing! I can’t tell you how long I have been waiting for this moment. This semester was like one annoying, never-ending train wreck, and the next semester may just be worse, so this break? I NEED IT. Eeeeee I’m practically pinching myself, I’m…

It’s Time For Me To Hibernate

Hi Everyone! It’s been a while since I’ve posted on the blog and the reason for that is- I’m a little under the weather. I’ve got a stubborn case of tonsillitis, and its been keeping me from being my usual happy self, so I have decided to take a little break from blogging until next…

True Love is a Steaming Hot Bowl of Rasam.

Dear Foodies & Friends, FINALLY. After a three-week slump, some introspection and a lot of self motivation (“you will STOP being such a potato”) I’m back on the blog with my favorite recipe in the entire universe!

A Slice of Apple Pie

Sometimes I wish I could take my favourite memories, experiences, feelings and just bottle them up. I’d visit them whenever I want, like a pensieve of sorts (forever a Harry Potter fan). One of the wonderful recollections I’d include in this fantasy bottle of mine would be Christmas morning in Ohio. Every year I’d wake…

Easy Peasy Lemon (Drizzle Cake) Squeezy

Our old home in Bangalore was nestled in the middle of an unfriendly, barren and desolate land. There was nothing for miles, except the odd liqueur shop, meat stalls, and gloomy cyber cafes. Yet somehow in the midst of this misery, my brother and I grew up in an artist’s paradise. The house was uniquely…

Chicken Cacciatore

Dear Foodies & Friends, Nothing screams comfort food like rustic, hearty chicken cacciatore. Every bite is an explosion of flavour in your mouth. This Italian dish is easy to make and requires very little effort, which makes it perfect for busy weeknight dinners (or hostel suppers when you can spare the time), and lazy Sundays….

Beasts in my Belfry, and Hot Summer Nights

Dear fellow foodies and friends, Since my last post on the blog, life has been full of conundrums, pandemonium and confusion. This is by no means an excuse for all my procrastination. I am a self confessed lazy potato as you can see in this photograph. However, so much has happened over the last few…
