Today, I’m sharing the classic Italian spicy arrabbiata sauce recipe. Spicy, delicious and ideal with spaghetti or penne, this is an all-purpose sauce that takes 30 minutes (tops) to put together.

Arrabbiata literally means “angry” in Italian. The name of the sauce refers to the spiciness of the chili peppers. The more you add, the spicier your sauce will become (duh). It works well as a dipping sauce too.   (more…)

Mangoes are in season!

I’m yet to meet someone who despises mangoes. How can one really?  For someone with a sweet tooth as intense as mine, desserts are the bane of our existence! Moderation, Special occasions are words we don’t find in our dictionary. But dessert cravings can be managed. A mango is all I need to forget about that chocolate cake (wait – did I say cake? gotta make me some of that now!).

Aamras is simply mango puree flavored with cardamom or ginger. That’s it. You can probably stop reading now since that’s all there is to this recipe! But if you want, I’ll write it out for you!
