Indian Tricolor Macarons

Indian Tricolor Macarons are filled with all the beautiful colors of the Indian flag to celebrate India’s 70th Independence Day!

Remember I shared these tricolor cupcakes long back on Indian Republic Day? That was way back and since then I didn’t share any tricolor food. I mean I wanted to, but it just didn’t happen. So...

Salted Caramel Macarons

I always talk about how much I love to cook, how much I love to bake and yes also how much I love to click food (never thought this would happen one day but it did!) but I rarely talk about what I dislike about food blogging. And I have to say that cleaning the mess that I create after cooking and clicking pictures is what I hate the most. I REALLY REALLY hate it. Okay sorry for the caps, I just wanted to make it clear how much I hate it! Urgh!

The other day I made these salted caramel macarons, the shell making part was easy and I didn’t create enough mess. And...

        One thing which I really miss these days is baking. When I first started cooking, I only used to bake.
