Clementine Cake

I had not baked anything in a while. As in, baked sweet delicious little things.. I have baked asparagus, brussel sprouts and other food for weekday dinners. But dessert had been somehow outside of the radar. But it was March, weather was getting better and it was one of my friend's birthday. Perfect reason to… Continue reading Clementine Cake

Mint Chutney

I am going to make a confession- I am obsessed with mint. But you already knew that, didn't you? Who would otherwise go to the extent of adding "mint" even in their blog name? So along with that obsession comes the perpetual need to try it out in many different forms in many different recipes.… Continue reading Mint Chutney

Poetry in Silence

It's a spoken word poem I wrote over three years ago. This is the golden age of information Yes, it is the age of information The constant flow of quantitation Suffocated by news media strangulation And frightened by total privacy invasion Visual overload defined as good stimulation Persistent pressure for new technology implementation Increasing cacophony… Continue reading Poetry in Silence

Objectively Right Principles

Yesterday, the world woke up to the historic outcome of US presidential election. I and everyone I personally know was shocked by the fact that Mr. Donald Trump is the president-elect of this 2016 election. How could this happen? I was bewildered and confused. I live in silicon valley, which is the center of innovation,… Continue reading Objectively Right Principles

Recently I had access to some old car tires. Four tires! Woohooo.. I was super excited. I… Continue reading DIY Tire Storage Ottoman

What Sól taught me

I visited Iceland recently. It’s a magical place. Nature, in all its grandeur is forever present all the way to horizon on all sides. People are polite, nice and willing to help you out. They are also extremely well-connected to the grid. Among those who crossed my path, one person really struck me as remarkable… Continue reading What Sól taught me

Roasted Squash Fava Bean Salad

Summer is really making its presence felt around here. Hundred degrees?? That's just unbearable especially when you don't have A/C.. Oh well. What do you do when it gets that hot then? Dream of fall, that's what. Today's recipe is flashback. A dream of fall that is bygone but will be here soon, crisp and… Continue reading Roasted Squash Fava Bean Salad

No-Knead Pizza

I have always wanted to make pizza at home; but it has been rather easier to just order online and bite into my favorite thin crust pizza from our neighborhood pizzeria. Then I saw pins about gluten-free crusts. It's not that I am allergic to gluten, but gluten-free essentially meant no kneading. I was more… Continue reading No-Knead Pizza

Saffron Oatmeal with Blueberry Sauce

Breakfast never before equated oatmeal for me. In India, this trend hasn't caught up yet, so growing up I had whole another range of food that I called (and still call) breakfast. After I moved here, my breakfast has moved from black coffee-Nutella sandwich to glass of milk with banana and whole lot of other… Continue reading Saffron Oatmeal with Blueberry Sauce
