Salmon on green vegetables

Yes, it’s been weeks since I last posted anything. Since then I changed the layout of the blog, climbed few mountains, got sick and got 2nd degree burns, but most of all, the heat is driving me nuts. Everything that required longer… Read More

Chicken in almond-coconut curry

I love to try new cuisines. I find it fascinating how people use the same spices and products differently. I tried my hands on few, and I think the indian cuisine is my favourite. It’s so rich, full of flavours and contains… Read More
