Rich Orange Cake

I had shared an Orange cake recipe when I started the blog some 4 years ago. It was good, but not orange enough. I don't remember making it again in the subsequent years, even though I made it quite a few times that year. This year, again, I looked for an orange cake recipe, and … Continue reading Rich Orange Cake

Peanut Butter Cookies

The other day I was going through my recipe collection, and I noticed I mostly note down cakes and the likes.

Chocolate Biscotti

Hello world! (That comes from the first lines of code I ever wrote doing BSCS). I have been AWOL for long. Business school was hectic (or so I pretend it to be), I wasn't cooking at times when taking pictures would be feasible, mostly I wasn't cooking or baking at all. Now that business school … Continue reading Chocolate Biscotti
