Thai Ice Black Coffee

Thai Ice Black Coffee 5

Why coffee is so expensive? I don’t really like coffee, but my brain starts to depend on it. The first thing I do in the morning is making a cup of black coffee. No sugar. I wait until my coffee is lukewarm and drink the whole thing in one shot. When we go out, I

Milo Milkshake

I still drink Milo. Milo and Ovaltine are chocolate and malt powder mix like Boost, Horlicks and Bournvita in India. We get Milo here in an imported section of our supermarket. These things are popular with kids, so some of my friends think it’s weird that I still drink it all the time. To be honest,

Summer is approaching. In a way, it’s already here because of Global Warming it seems. But school summer vacation is on the way. Yaseen is going to have 2 months long vacation where we will probably do the best out of it. Summer in India is harsh, especially in a place where we live. It’s

It’s a beautiful day here in Pune, India. The rain has been gently sprinkling from the sky since dawn. My alarm went off at 5.30, and my repetitive morning routine makes me kind of tired. The first thing I do after waking up is making myself a cup of coffee. Then I cook breakfast and

Kokum Ice Tea

When I posted a recipe of Kokum tea yesterday, a reader wrote me an email asking where to find kokum in the United States. To be honest, I really have no idea, but the grocery stores that sell Indian products are my best bet. Anyway, because of that I just want to show you an up

My affair with hot chocolate is no secret. I indulge. I love the silken dark lava on my lips when I sip my hot chocolate. To me, having something comforting is a perfect way to start the day. It made me feel pampered and loved, and that’s what a good food can do to you. I
