Nutella Cake Pops

Nutella cake balls on sticks

Last year I received more than a few requests from my lovely readers for posting more kid loving recipes and I was happy to oblige. So, I asked my friend’s kids what they love to eat the most. What I figured from their answers was that they would enjoy anything that is small, easy to hold, can be dipped and popped into their mouths. The very first thing that came to mind was cake pops. Don’t we all love cake pops? I am not sure why it took me so long to post this, but I am glad I am finally doing this. Cake pops are the cutest bite sized treats with big on taste Not only are they fun to eat, they are fun to make as well and a great way to use up leftover cake.

Creamy Kala Chana Soup

It’s hard to get back to blogging when you are away for a while. I was worried I would’ve lost all of my visitors and readers. But you know what? I was wrong. A few of my posts got quite a lot of views, and I also received a lot of good feedback through comments and emails. Some of you missed me, checked on me and encouraged me to come back. So, thank you for doing so. A foodie friend recreated my Kale quesadilla recipe and shared it here. This was a real morale booster for a great start of the year and to get into the routine of posting and keeping in touch with you all.

Today I bring you a a healthy, creamy and chunky soup that is mild enough to be kid friendly and layered with flavors of cumin and ginger to please the adults.

Meethe Chawal / Sweet Saffron Rice

Hello everyone, Happy New year!!!

It is after 5 months that I am logging in to my blog. Yes, I am all well.

I have been really busy with various responsibilities. We sold our house after living in it for 12 years and moved into a new one that we built ourselves. We knew nothing about building and even though we hired tradesmen to do all the jobs it was a lot of work managing the whole design and construction process. Days were long, stressful and exhausting, and I was overwhelmed in the beginning but supported my husband fully in carrying the project through from start to finish. The result is a home we love and one that reflects our tastes and preferences.
I am starting the year with a seductive recipe that I have grown up eating and love it.

Rose Syrup

Rose syrup

This my dear friends is an exotic and fragrant syrup that I enjoyed since my childhood days. It is highly versatile. You’ll find its use as a flavoring in many traditional Indian, Persian and middle eastern cooking much the way Westerners use vanilla. You can drizzle over crepes, kulfi (indian ice-cream) or add it to milk and desserts or use it in baking or in cocktails for a subtle rose flavoring. If you have never tried your hand at homemade rose syrup , you won’t believe how easy it is to make. I made a small batch in end of June when my rose bushes were in full bloom.
