Orange Scones the easy way!

The trip to Farmer's market on sunday left me with a lot of fantastic smelling oranges in my pantry. It was easy to inspire myself to make some orange scones.

Cornbread Muffins

The past few days have been just so busy that I barely have the time or the energy to make a good dinner. After consecutive days of take-out from Chipotle, I decided to make these very simple cornbread muffins. The result was very tasty and very filling.

Spring Essentials - Popping Pink!

Now that mint green has been properly appreciated, the next thing I'm loving this spring is Michael Kors sportswear inspired neon collection which is such luscious eye candy. So thats what I'm going for on the days I don't feel that coy (meaning pastels). Going to colour the town hot pink!

Spring Essentials - Thirsty for Mint!

With Valentine's day behind me and the sky being oh so blue for the past few days, I believe we can finally start our preparations for spring. This year is going to be a lot of pastels for me and if there is one colour whose beauty I never fully appreciated , its mint green.  So get ready for some eye-feasting as I roll out my favourite mint-green picks for spring from Zara who seem to have jumped on the mint band-wagon with quite a lot of enthusiasm.

Valentine's day in Pictures!

Hi all.. How was your Valentine's day? Our Valentine's day was like any other day - filled with love, laughter and itty bitty fights! Hubs gave me Piggywiggy, my adorable new kitchen timer. He is my new favourite in the house. I think its an amazing gift for a newbie baker. What do you think?

A M(B)erry Feast!

When you bring home ten boxes of berries - every kind of them, there is nothing else to do than have a feast. Over the weekend, we had a great time munching on blueberry muffins and strawberry jam with toast.

Flirty Pink or Sexy Red? Part 2

Time for a pink overdose! Ready?
Above $300
I loved this open back, daring yet sweet dress from Asos. Love the deep pink. Badgley Mischka's spring 2012 dress seems tailor made for Valentine's day with its beautiful heart shaped bodice which is actually a bow which ends in a peplum. Nanette Lepore's button down dress is also a perfect pink dress from its lace overlay to its belted waist.

You remember how I swore off baking because of the amounts of butter involved? Well, people convinced me, I don't have to be so drastic about it. There are ways to compromise. So here is one such recipe that doesn't even feel like much of a compromise - Butter-free chocolate chip cookies.

Valentine's day treats!

Its been a crazy week and I could not spend as much time cooking and baking as I would have liked. February is a special month in our house and we celebrated the start with a simple home-made pizza made special by its shape.
