Mint Sherbet




I could not resist myself in posting this mint sherbet. I prepared this yesterday, got ready today and when I'm typing this, the status is finished......! Most of you might have a period between your under graduation and marriage with a job. Again, if that happens in a hostel....! then you can imagine how funny those days were.....without an exam fear and not much any other anxiety , a gang of young ladies ;-) responsible for most noises, sleepless talks, crazy jokes  (NB: we have seen some of our "classic" self goals in movie later on) naughty discussions, and sharing the pranks from each one's work places......While making this mint sherbet, I was dwelling in those exciting memories.



Mostly when I get a chance to take any ice cream, I opt for vanilla or strawberry. One beautiful evening, these crazy ones had visited BR and one among the nutty us had introduced me to mint ice cream. One that very day on wards I started loving mint; starting from ice cream, falooda and it goes on......



After avocado ice cream, this is my second post for frozen dessert. Thank Lord! that you have shown me the recipe from the book "Ready for desserts" by David Lebovitz.

Roasted grape tomato and baby potato salad



Remya's Baking


Hello...how are u all? Hope u all had a wonderful Onam. Here I can spot the autumn, just knocking at the door.....I can see a marriage between warm and cool. I could feel the cheering effect of both.  For me, the month of August was very static and least charged to write since I loved more to enjoy with my sweeties. This salad has been made three months back with chicken pasta. Perhaps this was my first attempt to use oven for salad.

This is my first post on the type - salads. This can also be done with barbecue chicken or any such kinda ones. I made it a little hot as we have some affinity for spiciness in salads.

Plum Pomegranate Juice





Hi all......after a short silence I'm back again with a simple juice......and indeed a healthy choice  :-). I'm enjoying this summer to the full fledge and hope you too....I can see the reflection of sun onto the leaves which would give a mirror like shiny appearance......I don't know whether I have loved "sun" to this extend before.




This land of crispy apples gives me the sensations of a mysterious lover......who has wonderful eyes, showing me the most lovely and eye catching frames......who has a beautiful long nose which delivers me the organic fragrance of spring......who has the most passionate lips to kiss me in the form of light breeze and simultaneously conceals its mystery.

For me, plum was a cake related stuff. But recently when Anish brought a packet of it I thought of the plum and pomegranate combo.....not a bad idea right....? Thank Lord! This is my second post for drinks after strawberry pear smoothie

Apple Pickle





Hi...how are you ....? I'm glad to tell you that I too have a facebook page on the name Remya's Baking and Cooking. From the core of my heart, I thank all of you.....my dearest readers.  This is my first entry to the pickle category . This was again a play with apples and you may know about the  soothing apple cake and the apple jam I made before...




For this pickle recipe, the courtesy goes to my mom. I just replaced her recipe to make fruit pickle with apple and the result was really amazing with a sweetness and hotness combo .....This tastes similar to ripened mango pickle.

A Mickey Mouse Club house themed cake for my little princess




On this April 13 th, she turned three. How fast the time flies ….? I still remember my first kiss on her…..It was like kissing a beautiful rose, sprinkled with dew drops….My lips pierced into those dewdrops, gently touching the silky rose petals…and that moment was like millions of stars twinkled in me and simultaneously on the other side, an anxiety of a mother was shadowed in my eyes…Oh God!  capitulating everything on you…..



“Itz a mickey mouse club house
Come inside and sing inside……..”

The waves of this music are recurring in my heart even when I’m typing this post.  I don’t know why  Rydhi  is this much in fond of mickey mouse  (in her terms “mickey moush”).  When they dance in the TV, she used to jump in our couch with an excited face.  This has made us to have a drive to our childhood…..where in those days, waiting for “The jungle book” , which was telecasted in Doordarshan (only channel available in those days for us ) and truly Anish and me love Mowgli even now and I know at least some of you are still in fond of it.



On this birthday, I thought of doing a themed cake and was certain about the theme. As parents, we all love to give the best one for our kids right…? So this time, I haven’t gone for any gateau….but focused on the fondant decorations. This was not a well planned one.

This was my first humble attempt on making figurines. While making the cake toppers, Anish was there with me giving the correct feedbacks. Five cakes were baked for the three layers. I had an 8 X 3 inch pan. So for the middle layer, I baked a single cake, which is Hershey’s chocolate cake. For the bottom and top layers, I baked a fondant friendly cake, which is firm enough. I have done the cake with marshmallow (mini marshmallow) fondant. The figurines are also made with this fondant but was made a day before to make it strong.

Pear Cobbler




How was your days...? Mine was a little bit sick with fever and now getting better. I'm excited to tell you that sun has removed the mask of clouds, and started to smile and shine as ever.....and I feel very happy to see children playing outside, making wooden cart, running and exploring......kept me to have a journey to my early days.....Each of us have such a good frame of flashes with a good aroma of memories right...?



Fruit cobbler is one I always wanted to make.....but it was always postponed due to simple reasons.....This was yet another dish which I promised you the visit in  the Pear Burfi post.  This is a fruit based baked dessert and I made in individual 4oz ramekins and I got the recipe from here.

Chicken spring rolls






Hi my dear ones......Hope you had a great weekend. Today I have a delicious snack recipe to share with you. After  Uzhunnu vada (no baking powder) and diabetic friendly Oat meal crackers, this is another promising tea time snack. 



One fine evening, we visited our cousin aunty and she had given us hot chicken spring rolls. It was simply awesome and she shared the recipe. On that very day itself, it came inside my mind to give it a try. Thank God! that "time" came now  only as I was in a hibernation mode those days.........



Chicken spring rolls can be altered as veg spring rolls or any meat spring rolls as per  your fillings, just like empanadas. First step is to prepare the filling and then do the pan cakes so that the spring rolls will be ready soon.
