Coconut & Raspberry Cake

Gypsy Soup


Aah yes, just like a little bunny on Easter, fluffy and irresistible. Before we had lots of restaurants and grocery stores and bakeries, we had family gatherings where everyone took part in bringing a dish or two.

Healthy Carrot & Apple Muffins

Gypsy Soup


Satisfy that sweet craving!! Another swap-able ingredients recipe for you to play with your food. Add oats, or raisins, sunflower seeds, you earth-biscuit folks 😉
Back in my vegetarian days, I was on a carrot kick. Carrot juice, carrot cupcakes, carrot salad. I set up table at the town fair, and my folks came to visit me.

Honeymoon Pizza live cooking

HoneyMoon Pizza


A long, long time ago my brother and his new bride went off to enjoy their honeymoon. Arriving after an entire day of travel, they we tired & hungry. As they got to the hotel room, they were greeted with this pizza ….Skeptical at first, because who puts green stuff on pizza? and where’s the pepperoni? hunger gave way to trying something new. bake

Aah, but as luck would have it – this was more delicious than he expected. He was happy, my sister in law was happy and they enjoyed it so much so, that she’ll make it at home.

And when she does make it, it can be for a special occasion or for no particular reason at all. As for my brother, each time he sees Honeymoon pizza in his kitchen he gets all happy and hugs her as if she made the most elegant meal fit for a king.

The art of conversations: while I was home this past weekend, we were making our traditional family dishes, and they are time consuming!! But the magical thing about them is in the stories we tell while cooking, the discussions we explore as we chop. & it’s good to do things the old fashion way as there is no substitute for spending time with those whom fill our soul. We love. We learn. We eat, because this – This is our food.


Step 1: Use a sharp knife that is comfortable for your hand. Remove the fat & cut into chunks.

Step 2: Using the attachment on your mixure, grind the lamb a little at a time.
