A chronicle of my kitchen experiments, a little healthy a little indulgent
The year that went by has been very nice in matters concerning the kitchen, acting as a SAHM gave me more time and oppurtunties to cook which is something I have always enjoyed
The highlight of the last year most certainly has been the baking course that I did from Institute of Baking and Cake Art, most of the things I learnt were the things I knew anyways but the course added a whole new dimension to my hobby, it pushed it to the forefront, It also enhanced my skills very much. Loved every bit of the time I spent there – the folding, the kneading, the whipping, the creaming… simply amazing 🙂 It also introduced me to a lot of technical things which I am very happy about.
Another highlight of the year was baking my first ever yeast bread… I had tried multiple times before and failed so when this year I was actually able to make soft and nice dinner rolls, I was on seventh heaven 😀 I am now no more scared of the yeast monster, be it Cheese Croissants or Doughnuts and many more breads I made in this year 🙂
I also loved the way I craved and innovated for healthy food – the green oat cutlets, sprouts dhokla and oats dosa and not to forget the oats idly, samosas that were baked instead of frying
And how can I forget that lovely Trans continental baking we did with the Chocolate Mud Cake, man we were all behaving like kids 🙂
It was a brilliant year in the kitchen and my most favorite 5 recipes of the year on the blog would probably be:
And now that we have had a good luck at the past year, time to plan the next? So following are the resolutions or my wishlist related to cooking for next year… hoping I can fulfill it
Phew lets see how much I can achieve… so how was your kitchen year and have you planned the next yet?
