Crazy Chocolate Cake

Crazy is a relative term but normal is boring to me. This cake defies any normal chocolate cake recipe only in its method. The recipe does not need any fancy equipment or fill your sink with dirty bowls of various size. All you need is the round cake pan, spatula,and measuring spoons-now how’s that for simplicity? I’ve made recipes with steps spanning days like my croissant recipe and I assure you they are well worth Want to know more about this recipe?

Snickerdoodle Mug Cake

Have I mentioned I love desserts, especially single serving ones. I love when I don’t have to spend more than few minutes in putting together the dish from start to finish. I’ve been wanting to make snickerdoodle cookies for a very long time but when it comes to cookies my kids almost always prefer mint, chocolate, and/or caramel in them and that’s just not snickerdoodle anymore. When I was searching extensively on other varieties of Want to know more about this recipe?

Blueberry Muffin Mug Cake

When it comes to dessert I almost always tend to lean towards anything chocolate. I stick to certain flavors that I have hard time trying new things. I need rave reviews and affirmations to convince me. With that said, blueberry muffins are my favorite and I hardly can avoid getting tempted when I see them. The fact that this recipe (courtesy: fivehearthome) is done in few minutes in a microwave works to my advantage especially Want to know more about this recipe?

Coffee Cake Mug Cake

Hola (Spanish), Hello, Salut(French), Namaste(Hindi), Vanakam(Tamil)….and I’m still waving my hands saying hi to you all after taking such a long break. I went on vacation and after getting back I’m huffing and puffing catching up to my schedule that I didn’t find time to dedicate to my blog (don’t worry my alter ego is berating me that I’m giving a lazy excuse). Moreover, the camera I was using before was a loan and I Want to know more about this recipe?

The recipe is quite easy once you have the assembly line set up. All you need is a paring knife and a Want to know more about this recipe?

One Minute Chocolate Chip Cookie

As much as I enjoy a good old recipe to make from scratch I also enjoy quick recipes. What can I say, I love instant gratification just like any one else. My son, who can eat cookie as a meal was so excited that I was able to make him one in one minute. I don’t buy cookies from the store anymore, I make a large batch of cookies from scratch and freeze leftovers, if Want to know more about this recipe?

Eggless Caramel Custard Pudding

I absolutely love caramel in my desserts. I’m not a sugar junkie but caramel is an exception so I tend to add them in many of my baking recipes. I love the gooey texture that lingers in my mouth even after I’m done eating the treat thus letting me relish my dessert with limitation as I’m content and fulfilled with just a small serving. This dessert is also known as Creme Caramel or Flan in Want to know more about this recipe?

Eggless Banana Bread

“Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.” –Thomas A. Edison I’ve tried many eggless recipes and some have turned out to be a success and some quite the failure that I’ve shelved in the To-Try later section. I was brought up in an environment where failure is not an option which is not realistic so I tend to teach my kids Want to know more about this recipe?

Bombay Veg Sandwich

”America is a confirmed sandwich nation. Everywhere you go you find sandwich stands, sandwich shops, and nine out of ten people seem to stick to the sandwich-and-glass-of-milk or cup-of-coffee luncheon.” –James Beard I come from a place where rice and wheat are the staple food. Sandwiches are rarely provided as a snack smacked with jelly and butter. If you asked me to make a sandwich a decade ago I would have implicitly assumed and happily Want to know more about this recipe?
