Lemon Cranberry Pound Cake

Lemon Cranberry Pound Cake

I asked my husband to hide this Lemon Cranberry Pound Cake away from me! Usually I give away a lot of cake to neighbours ,friends and people working in and around the apartment.I did pack this one too in a nice box to give it away but I think subconsciously I didn’t want to part with it! The lemon and cranberry lends sour notes to this buttery pound cake.The texture is rich and crumbly at the same time. From experience this cake gets better with days.I made it on a Friday and on Monday(day 4) this cake was even better than when I first took it out of the oven. I have adapted the recipe of  Vanilla Pound Cake Recipe …

Healthy Zucchini Bread

Healthy Zucchini Quick Bread

Some days the baby doesn’t sleep at all and my chipotle Tacos go unphotographed cause he is so cranky and some days he sleeps for 3 hours and I am scared to start making anything cause you don’t know when he will wake up! Eternal Cycle of motherhood! One thing I should say is that having a baby is a great motivator.While I was pregnant I hardly cooked anything worthy but now I have so many ideas floating in my brain and only a few hours a day to execute them.It’s funny cause I had all the time on my hands before he came along and now I have to squeeze in 20 minutes of work in between his naps.This means I …

Grilled Eggplant Salad

Grilled Eggplant Salad

If you have been following me on instagram you would know that I have started a new food regime. I am going to take this a week at a time by following the paleo diet during the weekdays and maybe go a little crazy during the weekends. It would be the best if I could do the proper whole30 like last year again but it will be impossible with a baby. I can’t be too rigid with my food choices at the moment because one, I am providing nourishment to another human being and two ,taking care of that human being doesn’t let me have a schedule.Oh and there is a three..On days when he is cranky i can’t even …

Dark Chocolate Brownies

Dark Chocolate Brownie

These Dark Chocolate Brownies are addictive and so make with caution! These brownies sort of just happened. I wanted to bake and I was out of baking soda that’s when I started searching for recipes which were heavy on chocolate and light on baking soda. As always Jamie Oliver had the answer to this conundrum.(Side note:I love him!I love him! I love him!..He is so inspiring!!! I hope to meet him one day!).Jamie Oliver calls them Bloomin Brilliant Brownies. For this recipe I suggest you use good quality chocolate and not the compound chocolate(usually used for baking) cause the taste difference is phenomenal!I swear by Amul’s Dark Chocolate line.I have made these brownies using  the 70 percent Bitter Chocolate bar …

Apple Crumble Muffins

Apple Crumble Muffins

I feel that I only end up cribbing about the challenges of having a baby and never really tell you how awesome it is! So here are some things which will tell you how happy parenting makes me! Everytime he smiles and looks at me with those dynamite twinkly eyes something melts inside me!(like a choco lava cake.Sigh!!) Everytime he does something new I feel like I have accomplished something akin to going to the moon!(like the little butt lifts he does when trying to turn!Like omg he can move so much!) Everytime I am able to make him laugh I am actually rolling a video camera inside my brain so that I can keep playing that moment again and …

Ragi Chocochip Cookies

Ragi Chocolate Chip Cookies

My search for healthy snacks led me to this recipe of Ragi Chocolate Chip Cookies. I ordered a few “healthy & Nutritious” snacks online and let’s just say it was a giant disappointment! When I placed the order I expected a box of ragi cookies but what I received was two cookies dipped in chocolate. It definitely tasted good and it was labeled as healthy so even though I wasn’t happy with the quantity I was okay with it overall….Till I read the ingredients and deciphered the percentages. It did have ragi but it had a higher amount of refined flour and refined sugar so I don’t know why it was tagged as “healthy”.It’s become a gimmick to add one …
