Heart Cake

On friday, Navya came home from school totally excited, and the reason was she got to bring “Eli Monkey”, her class pet/toy, home. She had been waiting for this day for a very long time and finally got her turn. So this weekend was all about “Eli & Navya,” and we started the “celebration” with a pizza for dinner. The whole of saturday we did many things with, for and only for Eli. And since no celebration is a celebration without a cake, we decided to make one.

A salad for autumn

As a kid, I never thought I would get into cooking. Not that I hated it, but it was just that there were so many things I felt very passionate about doing, and cooking was just not one of them. Also, I always enjoyed(I still do) eating all sorts of fresh fruits so much that I used to think there was no need to cook to live.

Tiramisu

Y’day, we really wanted to bake a cake…. we had all the reasons! Only to find out our oven was not working. Two days earlier we used it and it was perfectly fine. Anyway, we couldn’t  wait for some one to fix the oven and then bake a cake; so simply chose to make a ‘Tiramisu’ instead. Since there was no cooking involved, Navya decided she would make it “all by herself” and she enjoyed thoroughly all the way – from the beginning till the end. It’s that simple a recipe. No cooking, no baking, no egg. Tastes yummy…a sweet delight to any celebration!
