Comfort Foods: Soups

Comfort foods are those that we eat not necessarily because it is good for us, but because it makes us feel good. These are the foods we eat on rainy days and sick days, after break-ups heartbreaks, they are our feel good food and we love them for it. Soups are one of my feel good foods, one very famous feel good soup is the Chicken Noodle Soup. Soups do not have to be the same old, same old. As a food connoisseur I love to expand my palette and savour many delights. Here are some soups to indulge in.

Cakes: Design

I love a pretty cake because it makes it fun to eat, but once in a while you see these gorgeous or too-cute cakes and it almost pains your heart to eat it. Well am about to dish up several of such cakes so you can gosh all you want, and the next time you see such cakes in real life you can eat them with no guilt, because you my friend have paid your dues. On this post there are no titles to pictures hence no links, just beautiful cakes to gorge your eyes on.

I2D4: Pies

Pies have always been one of my many sinful indulgence. It is one of the things that I know is not good for me but I do it anyway- yeah! Am a naughty girl and a rebel. I have tried my hand at a few recipes but have never really forayed deeply in to the world of delicious and decadent pies. So let me bring you on a journey to pie neverland, with a few of my favroites. Enjoy!...

MFW: Brunch

I have always wished to be one of those people that have friends over for brunch, hence my last post. I always wished I had friends who would want to indulge in these refined traditions like tea parties, brunches, dinner parties and a once-a-week cooking club, but we can't always have what we want. So I am indulging in my own make up parties and phantom guests.  So for all the brunch-ers and high-tea-ers out there let us live the hi-life.
