Chai Spice Recipe

Chai Spice Recipe - Cocoawind

Chai Spice - the magical mix of warm and aromatic spices that adds layers of flavor to my tea and a bunch of goodies that I make.

Tea. A good cup of steaming hot tea. Okay, may be not steaming hot. I cannot drink or eat anything too hot or too cold. A good cup of tea just at the temperature of my liking has the power to make or break my day. Yup. True story right there.

Cardamom Rosewater Pistachio Cake - Festive Flavors

Cardamom Rosewater Pistachio Cake - Festive Flavors - Cocoawind

Cardamom Rosewater Pistachio Cake. When the flavors of rose water and aromatic cardamom combine it creates magic! And it ignites the festive spirit in us. This cake is inspired by a very popular Bengali/Indian dessert - Rasmalai (Rosomalai/Roshmalai). Traditionally, saffron is used to make Rasmalai, but I wanted to infuse this cake with the delicate hint of rose water.

Apple Turnovers made with Applesauce

Apple Turnovers made with Applesauce - Cocoawind

And before we know it, September is here! The month when fall starts officially. And the month when the almost 7 yo turns 7! 

There has been a few changes in our household over the last couple of weeks. We all try to eat all our meals at the dinner table together - it has been mostly working out. I am trying to embrace a more active lifestyle - not just doing chores and running errands but trying to incorporate at least 30 minutes of active time each day. But the most dramatic change was perhaps - absolutely no TV-time for the almost 7 yo old during weekdays. That has opened up a wonderful new world, where we have proper conversations. Don't get me wrong - it is not that we did not talk before but those were mostly mundane information exchange - now we really talk like we used to during summer vacation.

Orange and Cranberry Buttermilk Scones

Orange and Cranberry Buttermilk Scones - Cocoawind

I was not particularly fond of scones. But that changed the day I tasted the Orange Cranberry Scone at the local Great Harvest Bread Company. It was love at first bite for me. I kept going back just for a cup of freshly brewed coffee and one huge Orange and Cranberry Scone and then... then one fine day they stopped just making it. They said it was the flavor of that particular month.  I was totally heart-broken. That's when I had made up my mind that I will try to make it at home. Then I procrastinated for a couple of months. In the meantime Great Harvest Bread Company brought back the Orange and Cranberry Scones, I am thinking, on popular demand. Happy camper, I would just keep going back for more.
