There are days when I’m completely bereft of ideas for cooking or baking. Then there are times when it all just comes rushing, and all I want to do is be in the kitchen fearlessly creating, trying new recipes with no worries about how the final dish will turn out. There are hits and misses,but lets focus on the hits, shall we? Like these Lavender Buckwheat Jam Scones!
It’s that time of the year when the air changes a bit. Days are still quite warm but mornings and evenings are getting that teeny bit of nip the air. Yes, autumn! Time for autumnal browns, oranges, greens and rust. Warm breakfasts are quite welcome now. Though in our house, they are very welcome all through the year if they come in the form of waffles or pancakes! Keeping the seasonal theme in mind, we’ve been digging into these Pumpkin Orange Pancakes !
Diwali countdown has begun! I’m busy wrapping up my work orders, home repair projects. The house is getting a sparkle and shine, we are filling it up with flowers, candles and diyas. Yes, you can almost smell the sweet excitement in the air. With the biggest festival comes the food..sweet, savoury, rich, delightful, indulgent ! What’s Diwali without mithai? And nothing like homemade treats like these Easy Coconut Ladoos ( laddu) !
I love making quick and easy jams, compotes, chutneys at home. Quick and easy being the keywords here! Anything with more than 5 ingredients and 3 steps, and you’ve lost me forever!! 🙂
This Beetroot Apple Ginger Chutney has stayed with me for just this reason. Not only is it a really fast one, but it tastes like you’ve slaved over your stove for ages and looks fancy enough to put out on your fanciest cheese platters..I mean just look at that intense ruby red colour!!
