Cookies!

So this week’s MyOrangePot’s HQ kitchen is all about cookies. Cookies and more cookies. I’ve spoken about this one very brave mouse in a post earlier in the year, so I won’t go on about it anymore.

Banana + Cranberry Bread

So, this week I was sort of away from home. By ‘sort of’ I meant I’m home everyday, but just never spent anything more than some odd  2-3  hours in it. My friend Steph is away in India on her yoga training, and her husband was away for coaching a ski trip for the week. […]

Ginger bread

My family was over to visit this past November. My sister flew in from Switzerland, Mama and Papa flew in from Indonesia. My apartment had never been happier. It was filled with laughter and warmth. Quoting Mehameha, it was filled with the kind of warmth that can only come from families. Something was always going […]

Basic Brownies a la Tari

Do you ever wonder how you got so into something? I was only thinking this the other day and wondered how I got into baking. Baking is a kitchen magic performing art. There is no denying about that. Seriously, think about it, all breads and cakes came from flour, eggs, oily agent, and other stuff. […]
