Sometimes, the best dishes emerge from an immediate need to use up leftovers. This Leftover Buttercream Cake is one such discovery.

Buttercream is possibly the most commonly used + loved frosting for cakes and cupcakes. The first time I made buttercream, I was stunned by the sheer deliciousness or something so simple. Butter + Sugar = Buttercream. Simple enough right? Who would have thought two of the most commonly used ingredients in baking would jazz up baked desserts by a thousand notches?!

Buttercream is something I’m making more and more these days. Its just so easy and inexpensive and fancy, you know. However, I always find myself with a little bit of leftover buttercream every single time. No matter how precise or stingy I get, I always end up with leftovers once I’m done frosting all my cupcakes / cakes. One fine day, I ended up with so much of buttercream leftovers; and that got me thinking…     (more…)

Not only are you looking at the best chocolate ice cream ever, but you are also looking at one of the easiest recipes on the internet for an eggless chocolate ice cream.

True story, people!

You know me; I despise any recipe that calls for too many complicated steps (which is also probably why I would fail miserably as a Chef! 😀 ). I ain’t got time for that! I’m all about minimum efforts and maximum results.

And this ice cream recipe is just a perfect example of my mantra. Okay, it isn’t as easy as making a garlic toast, but once you get your concepts right, you’ll be a pro at making ice creams of virtually any flavor in the world. A good place to start would be my vanilla ice cream. It is the most basic recipe for an ice cream which you can use to make amazing variations with.

And one such amazing variation is this Homemade Chocolate Ice Cream!   (more…)

To a regular person, food is a necessity to survive. For me, it is the essence of my soul!!! Food and books are the only two things that nourish my soul like no other experience / thing ever could!

And because I’m madly in love with all the food that I’ve cooked / eaten / yet to cook / yet to eat, I’ve made a list of foods I want to eat before I die. For a food nerd such as myself, that means almost every single dish ever invented by mankind.

For now, I’m happily munching on this Indianized version of a Subway Sandwich (which – FYI – has been on my to-cook list for about 2 years now).  Pretty much following McDonald’s footsteps, Subway came to India with a bunch of Indian-inspired sandwiches. And their customization has paid off big time. Subway today sells some of the best sandwiches in India of which this Veggie Patty Sub is a favorite among vegetarians. (more…)
