Whole Wheat Challah
This whole wheat challah bread recipe is up. Love the flavor and texture of this bread, and I think its going to become one of my most frequented bread recipe because I love it so much. The bread slices make amazing french toast, and they are good on their own too with just some butter.

Heading to Delhi yet again and so excited that I get to meet my brother after almost two years! Baked a cake specially for him late at night only to realize once the cake was baked that the jar of baking soda I had used actually had powdered sugar in it. Major fail! Taking some cookies I had made the other day and secretly glad that I am no longer baking for clients! Lately a lot of these tiny mishaps are happening and I feel I am losing my baking touch. What has been your biggest baking disaster? Please share below so that I dont feel I am the only one who screws up 🙈! Pictured the almond cake I made a while back using almond paste I picked up from @kingarthurflour Will have the recipe soon on the blog. _____________________ #hautecuisines #foodphotography #huffposttaste #foodtalkindia #instafood #foodblogfeed @foodblogfeed #vscofood #foodvsco #foodstyling #foodstagram #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #f52grams #forkyeah #lifeandthyme #gloobyfood #forkfeed #chandigarhblogger #foodcoma #worldismymenu #bakelikeshum #thenotsonovicehousewife #flatlay #indianfoodstories #thebakefeed #flatlayforever #healthyaperture #stilllifegallery #iamnikon #cake #iheartbaking
Can I just lie in bed all day and do nothing? On a Facebook group there was a discussion on how blogging is more work than a regular 9 to 5. Most bloggers are working 10-12 hours a day, seven days a week. Some even more. Even though I am not full time into blogging any more but whenever I am free I spend time on it. If not working on photography projects, I am busy researching brands I would like to pitch, trying new recipes, shooting for the blog, creating new content and then once the post is live promoting it on different social media channels. And since it is after all a community, I make sure to dedicate some time to interact with other bloggers. A lot of my inspiration and motivation comes from them, plus I love seeing people's creativity. Sometimes 24 hours in a day can seem less, especially if you do all this alone. Its very difficult to completely switch off like you could do with a 9 to 5 job. You have to be passionate about it. You have to be disciplined about it. And not like me who posts an onam video after onam has already been celebrated across the country. This video of banana coconut cake is the first in the series of my collaboration with @shivesh17 and @whirlpool_india Hope you enjoy it! I wish I could stay in bed all day, but its back to work for now. Hopefully the weekend will bring some respite. Happy Friday! __________________ #bananacake #thebakefeed #weekend #foodvideo #foodphotography #huffposttaste #foodtalkindia #instafood #foodblogfeed @foodblogfeed #vscofood #foodvsco #foodstyling #foodstagram #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #f52grams #forkyeah #buzzfeedfood #lifeandthyme #forkfeed #chandigarhblogger #huffpostindia #buzzfeast #thekitchn #yahoofood #foodcoma #worldismymenu #easyrecipe #stopmotionvideo @thefeedfeed.recipevideos
The problem with grilling boneless chicken breasts is that can easily become dry if you dont pay attention. Since chicken breasts are uneven some parts cook faster than the middle, and you get dry over cooked chicken. Pounding the chicken helps solve this problem. Use perfectly grilled chicken with some pasta, cherry tomatoes, onions and fresh basil for a quick and easy weeknight dinner. The recipe is up on the blog. Direct link in the bio. Made with @delmonte_in tricolor spirali. ____________________ #italian #easyrecipe #hautecuisines #foodphotography #huffposttaste #foodtalkindia #instafood #foodblogfeed @foodblogfeed #vscofood #foodvsco #foodstyling #foodstagram #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #f52grams @food52 #forkyeah #lifeandthyme #gloobyfood #forkfeed #chandigarhblogger #foodcoma #worldismymenu #cooklikeshum #thenotsonovicehousewife #indianfoodstories #healthyaperture #stilllifegallery #iamnikon #chicken #pasta

These prune brownies are made with no refined sugar and no butter. The prunes add a slightly tart flavor to the brownies and we in our house loved them- dense, and fudge like. Will post the recipe hopefully soon. ____________________ #brownies #prunes #hautecuisines #foodphotography #huffposttaste #foodtalkindia #instafood #foodblogfeed @foodblogfeed #vscofood #foodvsco #foodstyling #foodstagram #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #f52grams #forkyeah #lifeandthyme #gloobyfood #forkfeed #chandigarhblogger #foodcoma #worldismymenu #easyrecipe #foodideas #easycooking #bakelikeshum #thenotsonovicehousewife #chocolate #healthyaperture #stilllifegallery #iamnikon
So saddened with the state of affairs that unfolded yesterday in the tricity. Why politicians, just to maintain their vote bank, fail to serve the country? How people, who follow someone because they believe he promotes love and peace resort to such violence is beyond me. If you believe in his teachings, are you not supposed to follow them?? I just hope some sense prevails and peace is restored. Hoping today will be a quieter, less eventful day. Have some baking and recipe testing in works today. ____________________ #hautecuisines #foodphotography #huffposttaste #foodtalkindia #instafood #foodblogfeed @foodblogfeed #vscofood #foodvsco #foodstyling #foodstagram #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #f52grams #forkyeah #lifeandthyme #gloobyfood #forkfeed #chandigarhblogger #worldismymenu #withflavor #earthcrunchy #flatlay #indianfoodstories #flatlayforever #healthyaperture #stilllifegallery #iamnikon #wholegrain #thebakefeed
So I had this can of almond paste that I got from @kingarthurflour lying in my fridge for a while. I finally got to use it to make this almond caKe. It is so good! This cake doesn't need any sort of frosting, a simple dusting of powdered sugar and slivered almonds is all that it needs! I will share the recipe soon. The behind the scenes for this shot is in my stories, in case you would like to see the set up. ______________________ #kingarthurflour #thebakefeed #hautecuisines #foodphotography #huffposttaste #foodtalkindia #instafood #foodblogfeed @foodblogfeed #vscofood #foodvsco #foodstyling #foodstagram #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #f52grams #forkyeah #lifeandthyme #gloobyfood #forkfeed #chandigarhblogger #foodcoma #worldismymenu #bakelikeshum #thenotsonovicehousewife #indianfoodstories #healthyaperture #stilllifegallery #iamnikon #cake #almonds
