A riot of colours.

A riot of colours.

Swooning over cheese graters.

Swooning over cheese graters.

Swoon.I am loving these oak and steel cheese graters. They come with storage boxes to catch my cheese. Ah..now where did I keep that Parmesan? Sorry but the DIY lover in me couldn’t resist posting this gorgeous and totally doable table vignette. Now you know what to do with your old cheese graters when you buy the ones I’ve […]

Mini Chocolate and vanilla muffins.

Mini Chocolate and vanilla muffins.

You are probably familiar with my love for muffins. Because these little cakes are so quick and easy and when baked in mini trays their cuteness quotient increases exponentially.  This one in particular is my all time favorite recipe when friends who are passing by my home want to drop in for a cup of coffee and […]

Happy Monday morning folks. What’s cooking?  Over the weekend I made some Pomfret en papillote that I served with some crusty bread and a fresh salad & a loaf of warm Banana bread to go with my coffee. And after I had it…I smiled 🙂  Yes, I totally agree and identify with the quote below. And I am not embarrassed to admit it 🙂 What about you? Image […]

Mint Chocolate Chip Cake

Mint Chocolate Chip Cake

It all started with a bottle of peppermint essence that I saw in the aisle of store that I like to go to often. I had no idea what I was going to be doing with it though. The husband is not a big fan of the minty flavour and calls it toothpaste like:) I on […]

Leftover potato, blue cheese and onion pizza

I remember when we were kids each week one day for dinner my mother would take out what she called her “buffet dabba”. Now that yellow coloured dabba had many partitions in it and its where she would store leftovers that were so little that they didn’t deserve a dabba of their own. Mom being mom would sell it to us by saying,”see […]

A herb garden for your kitchen

A herb garden for your kitchen

I’ve always found the idea of having a little herb garden for my kitchen very romantic (Ahem…yes most things that have any association with the kitchen fall into the romantic category for me, so unlike other husbands who can even get killed by their wives for gifting them a hand blender my DH can totally get away with […]

The prettiest jars,ever.

The prettiest jars,ever.

I came across these DIY Decal kitchen jars and can’t get them out of my head. I am not sure if we get decal paper where I live but I need to find a way to try this out. A permanent marker and a stencil may do the trick….hmm…or may be not. Drool.Drool.Drool. Have a great weekend […]

Baked fish with sticky sauce

Baked fish with sticky sauce

“Even a fish could stay out of trouble if it would just learn to keep its mouth shut.” And since it didn’t quite learn the above it always lands on our dinner plate:) We love fish. Baked and grilled, never fried. I have never been a big fan of anything fried. Hence, no affinity for fried […]
