Stuffed Jackfruit with Poornam Filling

My sister-in-law Manju is one of the creative persons I’ve met. She is multi-talented and an excellent cook. The best part about her is whenever I visit her, she makes something new for me and doesn’t fear to experiment with different combinations or whip up an entirely new recipe on her own. This recipe is one of her creations. I recollect she served this desert on my first visit to her house after our marriage. Want to know more about this recipe?

Pastry Shells with Cream and Mixed Fruits

My kids wanted me to make ice cream for them when I announced that I’ve taken Kids Delight as my theme this week. The thought of seeing them eat ice cream with the cream dripping from their hands and with white/brown big mushes around their mouth is just hilarious.

Hidden Strawberry Cookies

Everyone has some hidden secrets that they just don’t want to reveal it to the world. I try to hide my secrets with long kurtis, oversized coats, loose fitted tops, baggy pants and in secretive ways that are known only to me (at least some part of my secret should be hidden!!!).

Mango Delight

As a child I was pampered with loads of mangos during summer. Because this fruit can increase your body heat my dad used to cut the mangos and give each person a share, you get either the pulp or the seed. Of course I used to get a slightly higher share because this fruit is my absolute favorite. I some how used to coax him to give me a whole mango and some days I Want to know more about this recipe?
