Vacation...









I had been out of the blogging scene for a bit coz we had taken our son on his 1st vacation (just wanted to clarify that he is 8 months old :))and he really enjoyed the pool and all the good looking women who gave him tons of attention!

Thought I will share a few pictures of this heavenly place which is a Westin Property and seems to be all about being at peace with yourself and giving you an experience to renew your mind and body and be at peace with your soul...

Hope you enjoy the pictures!










Father's Day Individual Brownie Cakes....





These were the most decadent cakes I have ever made... they were really easy to whip together since I was really short on time and the husband really really liked them :)! We went for brunch on Father's Day and had the most awful buffet at China Club a really hoity-toity place in Gurgaon - but I shall review that later.
Just going to give you this simple recipe that you can enjoy....
I used the pillsbury brownie mix (small packet) and added 1/4cup coconut flakes ( you can use 1/2 cup - will definitely taste better), roasted and slivered the almonds 1/4 cup and added all this to the brownie mix. Use the intructions on the brownie mix box to know how long ti bake. Take a cupcake tin and lined them with a cupcake sheets or parchment paper - to the bottom of ithe tin add crumbs of mcvities hob-nobs (or take any digestive or oatmeal cookies) and then just spoon the brownie mix and bake. I think I could have made one more cupcake but ended up just eating the leftover batter which was really really delicious!
