Watermelon & Lemon-Mint Pops

I like the trend of these food inspired days popping up. Not sure how these have come into being or what even inspired their creations but they are definitely something that unite the world. As an example, last week was “Popsicle week”. Now, who would have created something absolutely bizarre like that but then hey,…

Boozy Lemon Granita

My parents and I went shopping to a fancy supermarket last week that stocked quite a lot of amazing goodies. While I snooped around and got myself some amazing mushrooms (recipes pending development), my mom wandered off on her own and got a couple of Italian Lemons since they looked amazing.

My Ombre Birthday Cake with Berries

Birthday cakes are always special. These are memories in guise of cakes. Memories of maybe, friends showing up at midnight with a cake in hand to bring in your special day; or of your parents bringing you your favourite chocolate cake to celebrate your day or maybe a memory where you end up making your…
