Carpe Diem: A Lesson in Refrigeration

Carpe Diem: A Lesson in Refrigeration

It struck me as I was throwing out a ziplock bag full of once-frozen strawberries that had now turned a bag of red liquid with bits of mouldy berries floating in it. I had frozen them last season in the hope of conjuring up an Almond and Strawberry Tea Cake off season or making virtuous […]

It’s been a while since I posted a recipe for cake.

Tomato and Raisin Chutney

My current favorite snack is a couple of crackers dipped into or topped with something. Non fussy, easy to put together, enjoyable, and filling.

Eggless Microwave Raspberry Muffins

Every so often, I get the urge to bake something, and fast. Remember this? And this? Usually, this urge comes-a-calling when I am chasing the tightest of deadlines. The other day, I needed to send across a whole lot of documents, shop for last minute travel stuff (I was to leave for a North India […]
