Pretzels!

Srilatha Leave a Comment

Who doesn’t love a fresh from the oven, warm pretzel (or two!). One of the quintessential mall foods, my daughter and I decided we had to conquer this recipe during this quarantine period. And we’ve made it twice now, improving on technique, taste and texture each time. My daughter is definitely better at shaping them. I do the rest. If I close my eyes, I could almost believe I’m in some mall. So while it satisfies the pretzel craving, it also provides some retail therapy relief!

Homemade Butter With Store Bought Whipping Cream

I had no idea churning butter was this easy! I had about half a pint of whipping cream expiring soon and didn’t want to eat it with fruits or anything. And found this easy method to make it into butter! And all it took was about ten minutes. My daughter loved it with the homemade bread I had lying around. Feeling very much like an old time settler. Or like my grandma.

I have been wanting to try this cake for a while now, and a weekend party gave the perfect opportunity. I baked two loaves. They turned out pretty good. The only changes I would make the next time is to make it with olive oil instead of butter, and add some orange zest to the batter.

I completely forgot to take pictures while making it, so all the pictures I have are of the finished product!

Eggless Chocolate Mousse

Srilatha Dessert Leave a Comment

Mousse means foam in French. Going by that definition, this dessert should be light as foam. I scourged the internet for a light eggless version to make for our anniversary, and ended up grabbing bits and pieces from a few sites, see Recipe notes for links. This is Raj’s favorite dessert. I made 4 glasses, and he polished off 2 of them as soon as they were just about set. I think he liked it!
