But I went with my second thought and made...

The taste of this pasta dish will linger in your mouth for many hours… I’ve always been a pasta lover as pasta dishes usually don’t demand any ingredients out of the ordinary. Any veggie or meat in the refrigerator would work and any herbs in the pantry would go well with pasta. If I don’t have any of these, then a simple tomato sauce topped...

Stuffed Manicotti stole my heart… I love pasta dishes, however this was the first time I had tried manicotti. Seeing the huge size of manicotti it was obvious to me that it needs to be stuffed before I do anything with it. When it came for selecting the stuffing I was dauntless enough to pick ground beef. I even made my own pasta sauce infused with aromatic...

Oh Ya, the best homemade pizza I’ve ever made in my kitchen and it’s addictive… When it comes to pizza, one of my favorite toppings is chicken. But this time I wanted to try something different as topping and there was Salami(beef) in my refrigerator. I had no clue how this pizza would turn out nor I had tasted salami before. So from the moment I...

Emptying out the leftover veggies was my intention and ended up making this hearty veggie sauce to top the spaghetti… I had way too many leftover veggies in my fridge and it was last night that I finally  made up my mind to empty at least some of them. And I did succeed in it by making few veggie dishes, out of which this hearty veggie sauce I had made turned...

Every bite makes you trip into the the delish world.This was the first time I baked biscotti.

I have tasted this dessert in many restaurants, and I love CPK’s ( California Pizza Kitchen) the best so far. I often go there just to have a bite of this dessert. Every...

Puff pastry with sweet coconut and egg filling, delicious… I never had the nerve to make puff pastries dough from scratch . So I always go with the easy way of getting it from the frozen isle of a food store. I love to have puff pastry almost every day, but when I look at the nutritional facts label on the box, the percentage of saturated fat it has freaks...
