Food Confessions: Weekly Recipe Roundup

I’ll confess, I have been spending way too much time on the internet looking for recipes to quench my foodie thirst. It never seems to be enough even though my food diary is overflowing with favorite recipes and bookmarks. I decided it is time I shared the gems I find every week with you. I know you will appreciate them.

So here are my favorite recipes this week.

1. Chocolate Pound Cake:

This cake from Lemons and Anchovies is sitting on my kitchen counter as we speak. This cake was so tempting, I just had to try. It turned out as good as it looks the pictures; super moist and not too sweet with a dark chocolate after taste. I am in love.

I think I will be making a chocolate trifle with the leftover cake. I am so inspired.

2. Turkish Delight

This time last year, I was in Saudi Arabia and someone gave me a box of Turkish Delights. My my, you know how it feels if you have ever tasted this delicacy. I think it reminds us all of Narnia. I HAD to look up a recipe and this one from Kitchen Chronicles is tempting me.

3. Popcorn Chicken

I am making this for tea tomorrow and I am already drooling. HOLY FREAKIN CHICKEN, I think I might die of happiness if I found a box of this. Bless you, Food4tots, for this recipe.

The best thing about this recipe? Its baked! You have all my attention.

4. Spicy Lemongrass and Shrimp Thai Soup: 

THIS SOUP. Shrimps-chili-lemongrass-lime. Enough said.

Even after putting too much salt when I made this, the chili and the heat with it won me over. Its like a punch in the face once you gulp down a spoonful. I am so making this again.

5. Garlic Cheese Bread

Finally, cheesy garlic bread to go with the winter soups. I know all of us love to indulge it this appetizer at Pizza Hut. Next time, make it at home.

Yellow Cake Rusk

My family is obsessed with Cake Rusk; my brothers, sisters and cousins love dipping this biscotti-like-cake in tea every morning. One day, instead of driving to the bakery, I decided to bake some at home. The recipe is so simple and these rusks last for weeks (that is if I can resist them while they bake).

The texture and the baking technique is quite similar to a biscotti. In fact, if anything, I’d call it the desi biscotti. This recipe is an adaption of the Infamous Cake Rusk by Hsisters. Here’s what you’ll need: Continue reading
