Bold, colorful and loud!

Something different!

For the longest time and ever since my trip to Melbourne in January after dining at the fantabulous Cumulus Inc, I wanted to create something different and play with flavors.

Neither coffee nor tea!

It has been awhile since I have posted anything. Thousand apologies about that! Anyway, I woke up this morning and decided to make mango ice cream but I also realized that I have an orange and some lemon juice. So, I decided to make myself neither a cup of coffee nor tea but my version … Continue reading
