POSH Victoria Sponge Cake

What better way to celebrate the excitement surrounding the Olympics happening in London than sinking my teeth into a perfectly delicious soft Victoria Sponge Cake !

It's an easy recipe and the result left me feeling like so very happy !

I tried to read up online why it is called a ''Victoria'' Sponge cake and the apt answer seems that since Queen Victoria loved this soft cake with her afternoon tea ! So I am going to savour the cake and afternoon tea as I cheer myself hoarse…

sweet and sour masala pasta

my blog

My comfort-zone in cooking is Indian dishes. The masalas,spices, dry nuts, rice,coconut, cant think about a dish with out one of them. But I love to experiment food from other side of the world. Don"t know whether it is a strong point or weak point I do ended up in adding spices to it. (So now a days before cooking I lock my spice tins in a safe place…

A Refreshing Welcome Drink

What better way than to start my postings with a refreshing welcome drink. This minty-lemony drink was

a huge hit in one of the parties we arranged for my husbands’ colleagues. Most

of whom who were used to colas got little hesitant to try out the green color

welcome drink. But after the first sip no one…

Shrimp and Mushroom Wonton Soup

If you're a blogger and a foodie like me, it's likely you follow a lot of recipe blogs. That's how I found this recipe for Ro-Ri's Wonton Soup.

I couldn't resist the opportunity to make my own filled wontons, and I wasn't disappointed. This was really a lot of fun, and very easy to do.

I was the one that was crazy for doubting her baking skills. These were the easiest, cheapest cookies I’ve ever made, and they are fabulous! They taste a bit like shortbread, probably because of all the fat.

Carol’s advice is to buy the cheapest potato chips you can find, and she says they… Continue

Renaissance Recipe - Offella

Offella v2

Cooking from original medieval and renaissance recipes can be challenging but fun. Most recipes don't come with any real guidance on quantities of the ingredients, leaving it up to the maker to decide on the balance of flavours they desire. This suits me well, as when I am inventing original recipes that is how I cook, and it takes me quite some concentration… Continue
