Halloween is one of those occasions where ‘more is less’, when it comes to candies. I saw cute totes with witches and skull motifs in the store the other day. Nothing beats the good old fashioned ‘Extra large’ pillow cases, wouldn’t you agree. I mean you are not coming back home to dump the cute

My  Sour  Cherry  and  Plum  trees  are  laden  with  fruits.  It  is  so  exciting  to  see  the  flowers  cover  every  inch   of  the  tree  in  Spring.  The  small  green  stubs  come  next  which  then  swell  up  and  change   to  the  lovely  orange  and  red  colour. The  birds  wait  as  much  as  I  do  to  pluck

Who  can  forget  those   scorching  summer  afternoons  in  India?  The  heat  so  strong  that  it  is  not  safe  to  step  outside  at  all  for  a  few  hours  during  the  middle  of  the  day.  Only  way  to  cope  with  the  heat  is  to  have  these  coolers  and  a  siesta. The  commonest  thirst  quencher  is  probably  a

If  there  is  something  of  a ” folkart”  in  cuisines,  then  “Bori”  would  definitely  be  a  frontrunner.  These  tiny  delicacies  are  protein  packed,  spicy  and  gossip  filled.  If  they  could  only  talk!  Traditionally  the  village  women  would  sit  together  and  spent  the  afternoon  making  ‘Bori”,  at  the  same  time  exchanging  all  the  juicy  happenings  in

Who  can  say  no  to  Chocolate  chip  cookies?  Mildly  sweet,  crunchy,  garnished  with  the  goodness  of  Goji  berries  and  pistachios.  The  other  bonuses,  these  are  eggless  and  gluten  free.  I  do  not  want  to  leave  anyone  behind. I  am  a  novice  baker,  hence  the  recipe  has  to  be  super  simple.  That  is  exactly  what  it
