    MEGA BLOGGING MARATHON – APRIL 2018 #87TH BLOGGING MARATHON THEME – EXPLORE THE FLAVORS – INTERNATIONAL BREAKFAST DAY 7 “Breakfast like a King, Lunch like a Prince and Dine like a Pauper” We’re into the second week of the Mega Blogging Marathon. While some have chosen to do 4 different themes for 4 weeks, I challenged myself with International Breakfasts and that too in an alphabetical order. When it came to G, I went from Granola to Green Peas Parathas to Grits. Finally chose Girdle or Griddle Scones from SCOTLAND. I’m a bit partial towards scones as I simply love them. My cousin in London, makes the best scones. Just out of the oven warm scones with butter, jams and clotted cream. Once when she…

    Spread the Fragrance     Did you that flowers have been used world wide as a part of cooking? Usage of edible flowers can be traced all the way back to the Roman times, its a major part in the Middle Eastern, Indian Sub Continent and Chinese culture.

    Easy to make This is my second scone recipe. I don’t know why I don’t make them often enough. Maybe just the mental block that they are difficult to make. Trust me they are not. There are two reasons I came up with recipe. Firstly, my partner for Shhh Cooking Secretly, Jolly who has a wonderful blog Homemade Recipes gave me the ingredients condensed milk and plain flour(maida, all purpose flour) for our July theme#MonsoonTreats. Monsoon means hot treats like bhajias, soups, curries. I really couldn’t think what Monsoon treat to make using those ingredients.I narrowed it down to baking something but what was the question.

    first time ever!       When Priya challenged the Home Bakers Challenge group to bake scones, I got excited. Excited because I love scones, because I have so many scone recipes in my recipe book but never tried any and because now I had to bake them! My cousin Jayshree is an expert at baking scones. She baked some during my last visit to London and invited my sister in laws and me to her house for early breakfast…. tea or coffee with scones. She served them with some jam, butter and clotted cream. Took one in my plate, finished it with some hot tea, then had another one. She kept on insisting we have more, but the mind was saying no and the…
