Cupcakes may come in many flavours, but the chocolate cupcakes are still everyone's favourite. It's my dream come true to make cupcakes decorated with frosting and sprinkles.

Chocolate Walnut Brownie | Christmas Special Recipes

Yet another recipe from Gateway's Pastry Chef Joe Francis. I prefer to have milk chocolate rather than dark chocolate. Jany, on the other hand, has always been a dark chocolate addict. So I always wanted to try a brownie for him. When Joe gave the recipe, I was super excited and gave it a try. The chocolate brownie is very rich and can be served as a dessert with a dollop of vanilla icecream. These brownies are very soft, moist, dense and chocolaty.

Homemade Ghee | How to make Homemade Ghee from Homemade Butter | Desi Ghee Recipe

Nothing can beat the homemade stuff. I made this ghee around 1.5 years back when my Mom was with me. She collected the milk malai on a daily basis and stored it in the fridge for a month. Later she brought it to Chennai and I tried this homemade ghee and homemade butter. Happy tasted this aromatic and flavorful ghee for the first time when she was one year old. Mom was super excited about the outcome of the ghee. It was lying in my draft for such a long time now. Though the pics were not quite impressive, I don't want to miss posting this on my blog. The pictures give me so many memories of my mom and the image right below has my mom's finger shadows which I don't want to crop. Let's go to the preparation steps:
