Festive Italian Butter Fingers

One of the fondest memories of my childhood christmas days is butter cookies. There was always a visiting uncle who brought us a box of the famous Danish butter cookies. My favorite was the curled up one almost similar to these fingers I’ve baked. Tasting these biscuits once baked only reminded me of the time…

One Bowl Chocolate Brownies

I’ve been so ridiculously unproductive on my blog this year. In my last attempt to catch with anyone still following my blog (hello! I am still here ) I’m making a comeback with back to back recipes in the next couple of days. And yes, Christmas baking is upon us so the timing for these…

Light Vanilla Cake

I’ve been waiting to tell you that I’ve finally got the recipe to getting that bakery style light vanilla cake.

Twice baked biscotti can contain just about any of your favorite filling ingredients and what’s better it’s healthy as it does not contain even a gram of butter . So these have clearly been a family favorite since forever.  Whether wheat…

Cinnamon Custard Tarts

There are recipes. And there are recipes that back you up on leftovers left by the first recipe itself. This is one of them. Couple of weeks back, I had an order for eggless cakes leaving me with odd amounts of condensed milk since it is locally available only ( in an even odder)  amount…

Cinnamon Rolls & Pecan Glaze

Homemade Éclairs 

  So it is decided. I have ran out of excuses to keep myself away from something that is an extension of my thoughts and my way of letting whats in my head take form online in word. Blogging the world calls it. And I love it. So much that the guilt of not posting…
