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.

Not realizing they were not my favorite ones, Alfonsos, I bought 2 kilograms of them and took them home to find out they were the sour kind. Well, now that I have them I can’t just throw them to waste! So, I decided to peel, de-seed and … Continue reading It’s currently mango season!

This past weekend, we played host to a pool day as well as a birthday party for a friend on our rooftop. I attempted to make a Lime and Poppyseed Cake on Friday but that turned out to be a disaster. As usual, being the very determined host that I am and because I promised a cake, I tried baking another one but not the … Continue reading An amazingly divine recipe!
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.
