My Pepper Tap Review and Recipe for Spaghetti Aglio e Olio

To say it briefly, lately, my life has been a mess. Shifting homes is turning out to be way more chaotic than I had ever imagined. I guess, for people like me who work from home, the impact is a bit more because one ends up feeling uprooted on the work front too. So when the folks at PepperTap reach

Baked Risotto with Mushroom & Kale

I’m not shy of making risottos, but honestly, ever since I discovered ‘baked risottos’, you know the kind that you start on the flame and then shut-off in the oven for the next 40-or-so minutes, I’ve had zero inclination to make it any other way! When I’m cooking just for the 2 of us, it frees me

Cupcakes with ‘Chikki’ Cream Cheese Frosting

Pin it, bookmark it, share it on my timeline or ‘favourite it’ – that’s how I’m used to saving recipes and clippings online. I don’t mean to sound archaic, but that’s such a far cry from the very first time my ‘Amma’ made me jot down a recipe in a diary that Papa had designated as one I was allowed

Tomato and Cheddar Pie

The time after a vacation is the toughest for me to get back to work and re-align my energies. Refreshed with new experiences, I’m usually lost dreaming up new recipes and projects while cheekily ignoring the dishes piled up in the sink. Really… the humdrum can wait! But this time, it’s just been ‘b

Red Rice Risotto

My first taste of red rice coincided with my last evening on the island of Bali. Sulking at the end of my week-long holiday, we made our way to watch the stunning sunset at Jimbaran beach and ordered an early dinner. Since this was nearly four years ago, my memory fails me in being able to recall th
