Triple Chocolate Chai Hot Cross Buns

Triple Chocolate Chai Hot Cross Buns

For many, Easter comes with many traditions. And Hot Cross Buns are as synonymous with Easter as chocolate eggs.

HOT and cross. Remember the nursery rhyme? “One a penny, two a penny. Hot cross buns.” The rhyme and the word bun always creates an inner child like excitement that conjures memories of yeast smells oozing from baking.

Finger Lickin’ Fried Chicken

Finger Lickin’ Fried Chicken

From the grease on your fingers to the crumbs on your lips, fried chicken can evoke childhood memories from almost anyone. Even me. Sometimes I have a fried chicken craving from my youth. Unfortunately, my family were not, by nature, fried chicken eaters. At the Lehail house, KFC was the be-all end-all of special occasions. Buckets of chicken — with its famous blend of 11 herbs and spices — along with coleslaw, macaroni salad, fries, and biscuits, made appearances on occasions like New Year’s Eve/Day. Relatives and family friends were prerequisites.

Flavours of Gajerala without all the work: Ultimate Carrot Cake with Cardamom Icing

Flavours of Gajerala without all the work: Ultimate Carrot Cake with Cardamom Icing

IF dessert drama (not family drama) is your goal this holiday season then Carrot Cake should be your dessert. Everyone is opinionated about this vegetal cake. There are devout haters, purists, accoutrement adders, and ones who have sadly never had a deliciously moist piece of carrot cake. Without fail, there is always a lengthy discussion whenever carrot cake is served.

Happy Hour
Sugar. Spice. And everything nice: Ginger Syrup

Sugar. Spice. And everything nice: Ginger Syrup

We are heading into the holiday season. Happy Hour. Cocktail Parties. It’s time to make some drinks and desserts, but with a South Asian kick.

This homemade spicy ginger syrup is versatile for both cocktails and non-alcoholic “mocktails” and even desserts. The best part is it’s simple to make.

Where did the inspiration from this Ginger Syrup come from? Chai tea, of course.
