Baked Sweet Potatoes

I love sweet potato and usually have it baked. It’s so easy, cos you just marinate it with whatever spices that you fancy and bake it. I have tried doing a simple stir fry also, but prefer the taste of the sweet potato when baked. My usual marinate for this recipe is with garlic powder,…

Apple Cake

I was at the neighbourhood library the other day with my friend, when she found this cook book which she was planning to borrow for her daughter. The recipes were fairly simple and I came across this apple cake recipe when I flipped thru the pages. As I have been thinking of baking anything with…

Butterscotch Cookies

These cookies are really soft and if you’re like me, could be a wee bit impatient to try them straight out of the oven even before they set! Trust me, they will crumble. Of course it won’t go to waste, as you can eat the crumbs or can use them for ice cream toppings…. Ha…

Simple Egg Curry

This is a very simple egg curry that you can make in a jiffy and it goes well literally with anything! Am sure most people love eggs and if you don’t or can’t have them due to an allergy, by all means do substitute with tofu or paneer. I have tried so many variants of…

Carrot Cake

This is the best carrot cake one can think of!  I was introduced to joyofbaking.com long back, when I first started baking and since then, I always go back to her website to try out new recipes. Honestly, I have not tried any other carrot cake recipe and doubt whether I’ll try any other, cos…

“Kheema” – using Impossible Beef!

Keema is a popular dish in India, made with minced mutton or beef and can be prepared as a curry or semi dry. It goes well with bread, chappati, paratha or rice.For this preparation, I used Impossible Beef (which has no meat, but made from plants!) and added carrots and sweet potato as well. I…

Orange Cake

When I think of orange cake, I think it’s just the rind and the juice that goes into the cake. So when I came across this recipe, where you use the whole orange with the skin and minus the seeds, I just felt I had to try it out. Oh boy, it did not disappoint!…

Baked Teriyaki Salmon

It’s super easy to cook salmon and usually it’s either baked or pan-fried and it doesn’t take very long to cook either. Just play around with whatever you feel like marinating it with and then choose how you would like to cook it. I don’t have an air fryer, else I would have tried that…

Coffee & Cinnamon Chocolate Chip Muffins

OMG…. these coffee cinnamon chocolate chip muffins are packed with flavour! As I love the 3 Cs 😂(coffee, cinnamon & chocolate chips), I just had to try baking these muffins and I loved it. These muffins are gluten free and vegan too! I know that a lot of people do not like cinnamon. So I…

Methi Fish Curry

Here is another recipe using fresh methi (fenugreek) leaves. I love cooking with fresh methi leaves, as it has lots of health benefits including lowering cholesterol, high blood pressure and diabetes. My first attempt at cooking anything with fresh methi leaves was Aloo Methi, that I liked very much and recently I tried Methi Dal…
