About this Cook
I am currently a homemaker and a full time mom to twin 2 year old boys. I was born and brought up in India and now live in Singapore. Cooking of me started out as a necessity when I got married, but over the years has evolved into a passion, an outlet for creativity and a form of therapy !

Apple Cinnamon White Cake
This cake was a success and I got a lot of compliments when I made it for company. The only reason for giving 4 stars and not five is that I made a few modifications after reading other reviews, which I believe improved the cake. To begin with I used 2 apples and I grated them instead of chopping them. I increased the cinamon to 2 tsps. and the brown sugar to 1/2 cup and added 1/2 tsp of salt. I used a 9x5 inch loaf pan and layered like this - spread half the batter then topped with half the brown sugar cinnamon mixture, swirled it into the batter and then added a layer of half the apples and repeated this.

Cranberry Carrot Cake
Made this cake twice already. The first time followed the recipe exactly. It was great the first day when just baked. But when I ate the leftovers out of the fridge the next day, the cake totally changed consistency. It was hard and too dense. Warming it in the microwave for a few secs set it right. Guess the mayo sort of solidified in the fridge or something. The next time, instead of mayo used 1/2 cup vegetable oil and 1/2 cup applesauce. This time it was perfect. Great flavor and texture even the next day straight out of the fridge.

Chewy Oatmeal Cookies I
My first attempt at making cookies and I was very pleased ! The only reason why I'm rating only 4 stars and not the full 5 is that I didn't stick exactly to the recipe, made the following changes: used whole wheat flour, no nuts, doubled the chocolate chips. However, these were not really chewy. They turned out crisp on the outside and soft and cake like on the insides. We loved them. Will definite make these again !
