Raspberry Pistachio Eton Mess

When I met Arvind 11 years ago, I realized very soon that he was different from all the men that I had met before. He was caring, very soft-spoken and so patient! It’s been 8 years since we got married, made a beautiful boy, bought a house and travelled to a few countries. That beautiful man has changed my life and whatever I am today, it’s because of his constant support and motivation. It might sound silly but I am living my fairytale life. Someday, I will share our not-so-ordinary love story but for today, it’s a delicious Raspberry Pistachio…

Summer was so good this year that I really didn’t want it to end. Today, it was a bit windy in the evening and I could feel that mild chill, making me crave for a bowl of soup. In about a week, autumn will start and slowly, frozen treat days will come to a halt. So, before it gets cold and I put away these kulfi molds, one more creamsicle is a must. Malai Pista Kulfi (Pistachio Creamsicle) is every Indian’s favorite summer dessert.

My favorite season is finally here with longer daylight, beautiful sunshine and pretty flowers! Now, all I ask from the weatherman is not to predict anymore frequent showers, storm or anything that takes away the Spring. Last week was pretty dull and boring with non-stop rain and cold winds, but what kept me excited was seeing Arvind finalizing the new design for blog. In between all the crazy workload, my sweetheart somehow managed to find time for planning, writing, fixing bugs and creating this new look. I feel SO proud and yes, I know :) I am one lucky girl!

Brittle Truffles – Guest Post by Grishma @ Zaika Zabardast

Few weeks back, I tried making truffles and failed miserably. I hear people saying it's easy, probably the best dessert you can make in advance and "wow" your friends at the party. Well, for some reason it's not working in my kitchen.. yet! When my very close friend Grishma told me she was making truffles for me, you can only imagine my happiness. And my excitement doubled when I saw the flavor combination that she used to make these truffles. I just can't wait to try it in my kitchen. Now, I might be able to make truffles successfully.
