“September is the January of Fashion,” announced The September Issue, the behind-the-scenes documentary that followed American Vogue’s Anna Wintour & other staffers as they prepped for the production of the most important issue of the c
I love the little changes in uh-so-boring routines that leave you wondering – “Duh! Why didn’t I think of this sooner?” Ditching my morning dose of caffeine is NOT one of them. But pan cooked bread, a.k.a. these English Muffins is certainly one of them. You’ll often hear of English Muffins being d
My weekly ‘favourhits’ have been few and far between this month. Watching a free falling currency was / is depressing & the events from last week in Mumbai in particular had left me numb. But there is no room for such despair in a week that marked the 50th anniversary of[ Martin LutherKing, Jr.’
A recluse like me needs the slightest hint of an excuse to stay home and curl up with a book instead of going out. And lately, I’ve had enough books on my bedside to make a nightstand out of my books! You guys, I’m literally drowning in books! But it’s not such a bad thing if I surface with a recipe
This post is all about avocados? What are the varieties available? Ever wondered how to select a perfectly ripe avocado? Plus, how to store, cut and slice avocados!

I think of this Chocolate Earl Grey Cake as the perfect balance between an innate love for chocolate with hints of a mature liking for earl grey – perfect for bridging the seven year age gap between my cousin and me!

Hello! Here it is, another long-ish weekend with another biggie movie sequel that hits the theatres. Did you get on to the “express” bandwagon last week? Are you going to the theatre “dobara” now? Me? I’m just skipping breakfast these days aaand waiting for _[Jobs, ](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Job
I’m a planner by nature. I like to think ahead, make to-do-lists & go over details excessively (read: obsessively). As stressful as this sounds (for me and those around me) this annoying habit has its pay offs. As soon as thoughts are verbalized about a vacation, I, the master planner, assault m
Addictions are to be taken seriously. And serious addictions in the form of cookie dough that can be frozen need to be shared. Slice up the frozen cookie dough and any hour becomes ‘cookie o’clock’!
This is no ordinary Buttermilk Cake, it’s moist with a tender crumb and has no butter. Instead, it is made with flavourless canola oil. The combination of buttermilk and oil is what sets this cake apart! And since fresh fruits are my favourite to work with, I’ve roasted some fresh plums with some brown sugar to extract maximum flavour! Forget cobblers and crumbles, this is how you’ll want to eat fresh plums when they are in season!
