Peach Tart




Hi there..... how are u...? When I look at the sky at infinity, I often feel.....like a fur of sheep or sometimes, regularities in irregularities......and at times, as waves in the sea.... and.. is sky a static (not actually) version of sea?.... or are they siblings...........? Okay ...leaving my wild thoughts and coming to the post.....



Recently we got some lovely peaches in our kitchen counter. When those peaches giggled at me and tweeted "Please make some sweetish out of us...." how could I deny that...? So I made this peach tart to serve for the dessert part of our meal. I got the recipe from Baking Secrets from Better Homes and gardens. By Gods grace, it came out well.

Spicy Kerala Mixture




How are u...? Most of us love to munch something crunchy in our leisure's or while watching TV right..? My mom used to make this type of mixture when we were so young. As we are more inclined to munch something spicy, our affinity towards spicy mixture never came to an end. 



My better half is much fond of spicy Kerala mixture. Whenever we go to Indian store, he had a tendency to pick big packets of this one. One day I told him  "I'll make it". Due to my sluggishness to execute , it rested in the waiting list. Recently my hero asked me "Dear....when will that "I'll make it" becomes "I made it"? and you know.... I'm waiting for it ". This triggered me to make it as soon as possible. By Gods grace, this came out well. Before this, I made Ari pidi and parotta and chilli chicken as Kerala specials.

Ginger Macaroons




We had a walk on the trail nearby after watching the movie Wild. It was so nice to have a walk through a trail listening to whistles of birds and in the comfort of  chillness offered by the trees around. Feeling the organic fragrance and in search of a lake on the extreme end. 



This is indeed a play with macaroons. I don't know why we fall for macaroons this much.... I don't know why the crazy me started to try different flavors of macaroons.  I know I already told about red velvet macaroons and classical French macaroons. By Gods grace, this also came out well.

Broccoli Mornay




Hi my dear readers.... How is your day? Here, I could feel that the dryness of winter is slowly disappearing.....  The buds are on its way to get blossomed.... preparing for the spring. The flora are whispering me ...we are getting ready with our best makeup gifted by our creator....They  are all set to welcome spring.... 



I came to know about broccoli only a few years ago. Now we buy it often. Broccoli mornay is baked broccoli in cheesy sauce.  We first have had this on a restaurant in Trivandrum and then onward we used to make it every now and then whenever we had broccoli in hand. Thank Lord for getting us the beautiful taste of broccoli ....

Kaju Katli (Cashew Fudge)




Today let an Indian sweet fill your tummies virtually.... I was a little bit scared while trying this sweet because of the importance of consistency. But by Gods grace, it came out well. This is a Deepavali sweet. I know I'm too early in posting this. But I couldn't resist myself from doing that. Deepavali is a festival of lights and we all would be eager to buy fire works...... Another Indian sweet in my blog is Pear Burfi.



In my childhood, there lived an Annachi (a helper in our property) who was so loving and an elderly native of Tamil Nadu, our neighborhood state. He used to go home for Deepavali and brings back a big box full of sweets for us. Myself, Rohit and Rahul would be eagerly waiting for the sweet box and him. He knew well that we were dying for his sweet box. In our journey of life, some persons who are not in our relative or friend circles are remembered with an affection and he is one among them.
