Incredibly Moist Black Forest Cupcakes

Hey guys! How’s it going? Hope you all enjoyed your Easter weekend!

Easter has very special memories for me. While I was growing up in Canada, whenever my mom came to pick us kids up from school, she’d have one of those yellow bags of Cadbury Easter Egg chocolates for us to share on our walk home. I’m always reminded of that this time of the year.

Fluffy Belgian Chocolate Waffles for One

There is nothing like sitting down to a plate of warm waffles on a weekend morning.

Breakfast is one meal I do not skimp out on. Waffles, pancakes, crepes, toast, cereal- all more or less contain carbs, are sweet and don’t exactly fit into the healthy criteria.

Unless, of course, we’re having a slice of whole grain bread, toasted with avocados or unsweetened natural peanut butter, paired with fresh fruit and yoghurt- which I also find delicious mind you! That’s a few steps closer to healthy.  Continue reading “Fluffy Belgian Chocolate Waffles for One”

Easy Homemade Strawberry Jam

Hey guys!

I know I’ve been AWOL for the past two weeks and I am so sorry! But I’ve been busy trying and piling up recipes to share with you all. Lots of healthy, delicious dishes and sweet, indulgent treats just waiting to be made by you!

The weather has warmed up here in India- drastically. I’m not kidding! India does not do things by halves- one day it’s still pleasant enough for a cool breeze and the next it’s so incredibly hot, it’s like the walls are closing in.

This year, first time since I moved to India, I was home during peak strawberry season and let me tell you- I went crazy. My freezer is just bursting with bags of frozen strawberries and bottles of homemade strawberry jam.  Continue reading “Easy Homemade Strawberry Jam”

Mini Apple Walnut Pie For Two

Hey guys!

I know Valentines is tomorrow, literally just around the corner, but it isn’t late to make a great dessert! Any of the recipes I’ve posted during the last week are simple and quick enough to put together.

This 3 Ingredient Strawberry Mousse just takes minutes to whip up (pun intended) and can chill in the fridge until time to serve.

These Brownies for Two have the perfectly crispy top and fudgy center and can be chopped up and topped with whipped cream and berries for a delicious trifle.

3 ingredient Strawberry Mousse For Two

Hello!

Winter has just come to a close- quite late for the South of India- and although the temperature has only risen by a couple degrees, I am sweating up a storm! And, can I say, I miss the cold?

Everyone facing the brutal winter on the other side of the world probably think I am crazy but you know what I’d love? A good snowfall with snow that sticks to the ground, enough to make snowmen and have a snowball fight, but best of all to watch the wonder that is the silent white world of winter. I mean, that’s what winter means to me, not the measly breeze that graces us with its presence for a couple weeks a year. Continue reading “3 ingredient Strawberry Mousse For Two”

Mini Creamy Cheesecake for Two

If you’ve been to The Cheesecake Factory, then chances are you’ve stood at their display of cheesecakes and felt a little weak at just the sight of those beautiful, creamy slices of perfection. Or is that just me? 

And watching that enormous slice make its way to your table and be set in front of you was the highlight of your day. No, week.

But honestly? I’ve never been able to finish an entire slice on my own. Unless you count that one time a friend brought some home and I kept pulling it out of the refrigerator and taking a couple bites every few hours and had nearly finished it by the end of the day.
