About this Cook
Hi, I am a young married woman. I have recently started cooking seriously. I am from India and am currently living in the States. I like my food full of flavour and end up adding a lot of spices/mixes to zest it up. Still learning!
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake!! Cookies, cakes, anything that can be made in an oven. I have found some great recipes on this website that made my learning an awesome experience!
My cooking triumphs
German apple cake (hubby certified). :)
My cooking tragedies
oh no, so many cant remember. My most common mistake is i add too much chilly (powder/whole).

Black Magic Cake
I made this cake for new year 2014 and everyone loved it! The cake came out beautifully! I didn't have buttermilk on hand so I used 1 tbsp lemon juice and rest milk (total 1 cup). Soft and moist, everyone said. This is one recipe I am going to keep and pass on kids some day!

Rita's Spinach Casserole
I made this recipe. I and my husband both liked it. But I didn't like the colour after adding the sour cream. Will try without it once again. Great way to sneak in spinach though ;). Thanks!

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies
I made these cookies twice till now. first time with white sugar only, and they turned out to be awesome. But, do they spread or what. I used a tablespoon measure to put the cookies and they turned out to be 5 inches (diameter) discs. Well, mouth-watering discs. Next time, I substituted sugar with sugar-free (sweet n low) and also added raisins on my husband's request. They also turned out to be very tasty. They always taste better the next day onwards and stay fresh for days. This one, I am keeping and not looking anywhere. :)
