Orange blueberry pound cake; with orange syrup.

I have an obsession over the food shows like most food lovers would have; for it fills me with exceptional ideas to recreate food in a way that I haven’t done before. The other day I was watching Ina Garten on Food Network (love her!!!) effortlessly mixing and combining the flour with lemon zest to turn…

Hyderabadi Lukhmi {mini meat parcels}

While India is one nation as a whole, I am beyond amazed how cuisines and method of preparing a single dish changes over each mile.

A few days more and the Holy month of Ramadan will commence. While we may be busy with our offerings and prayers, it is also advisable we keep our bodies nourished, eat right, stay healthy and work on time management (especially me!). That is one of the reason, I like to pre-make food that I…

Whole Wheat Vegetarian Pizza
