Hello Everyone! Long time, no blog post, eh? Sorry about that.
For those of you who have left me comments or sent me wonderful, kind E-mails, thank you! If I haven’t yet responded, I promise I haven’t forgotten. I have a lot to go through, but I’ll respond to them all as soon as I can! 🙂
Now that winter is almost over (FINALLY!), I plan on spending some extra time cooking, experimenting and blogging! I don’t know about you, but I really hate the winter. It’s cold. It’s gloomy. It makes me turn into a lazy, crabby lady. RAWR!
Oh, and I’m on a diet. Double RAWR! haha
My laziness aside, I have a few other things I wanted to share with you guys!
First, Dhokla! I wanted to share a photo of this beautiful, Indian besan (chickpea flour) cake. This particular dhokla won me a $100 bet with Piyush. Silly husband should know better than to challenge me on anything cake related. Haha!
Look for the recipe coming soon!
Second, our tickets are booked for India! We’ll be leaving here on October 11, 2013 and will be spending 5 glorious weeks abroad. I’m excited! The planning isn’t entirely finished yet, but a trip to Darjeeling is definitely in the itinerary. After all, it is one of my favorite places on this Earth.
While in India I’m hoping to learn some amazing techniques and recipes from different dhabas (roadside food vendors). I’m also hoping to “apprentice” with a Bengali sweet maker. Hopefully Baba can convince one to teach me.
Third, I’m considering making videos for the blog. I learn a lot better from watching someone do something, so I thought that’d be kind of helpful. Any thoughts on this? What would you all like to see–if you want to see me at all, that is!
