Pancakes

Something I don’t get to eat a lot of are pancakes. And they are one of my favorite foods ever! I love waffles too, but since I dont have a waffle iron this works out very well as a substitute. The recipe I have used here is from Zoella’s blog however I have adapted it…

Brownies

A few nights ago I was craving brownies. Simple, chocolatey brownies. This is a recipe I found in the Leith’s Techniques Bible, but I switched it up a bit. It’s very easy, and very quick. You don’t even need an electric mixer. I just used a whisk and spatula and voila! For the Brownies: 110g…

Wedding Sugar Cookies

Last weekend I went for this fabulous wedding in Jaipur. The bride being a very close friend of mine. In India, one of the customs at the wedding is called sangeet.

Chicken and Quinoa Salad with Tomato Jam

I’m sorry I know its a been a long while since I last posted, but I really just haven’t had the time or the motivation. Sorry! Zaatar is something I absolutely love. You don’t get it very easily in India, and the flavours are quite different. I have a friend who went to Dubai last…

Skeleton Gingerbread Cookies

Halloween isn’t something that is celebrated in India, but its a holiday I still love and try to integrate into the month of October. These gingerbread cookies are really easy to make based on how complicated you want the design to be. While most people won’t have a skeleton cookie cutter (do you even get one?)…

Tuna Salad on Bread – Hostel Life

So as you’ll may or may not know, I’m studying Culinary Arts in Aurangabad and live in a hostel. We don’t have a kitchen, kitchenette, fridge or stove. All we have is a hot/cold water dispenser and a microwave. So thats what we live with, and what we’ve learned to cook using. There is a supermarket…

Taco lime grilled chicken

Taco seasoning is something quite versatile and can be used on almost anything or in anything. I find the combination of lime and taco seasoning quite interesting, especially on grilled chicken. For the chicken: Chicken breast Taco seasoning Lime juice Salt (if the taco seasoning doesn’t have any) I marinated the chicken with the taco seasoning and lime…
