Tempting Treats: Pakistani Food is the richest and tastiest…

Posted by Knonie

Whoever lives in Pakistan knows the variety and richness Pakistani cuisine has to offer. It includes all those traditional dishes mostly cooked using chicken and other meats, rice, vegetables, pulses, etc. These dishes mostly use various spices to create unique flavours, a speciality of dishes from India and Pakistan, the old neighbors.

Last week, we had a family dinner at our place and my mother cooked some dishes for our honorable guests. I took few photos of the food being served which I’m sharing here…

Elmo Cookies- Too Cute you won’t even eat ’em…

Posted by Knonie

Recently a friend told me about one of their acquaintances lady based in Singapore, who makes really beautiful cookies. I asked my friend to ask for her permission to use the photos of her edible crafts with my friends through this blog. She happily agreed, so here is the first batch of the photos, featuring some cookies and cupcakes resembling the face of Elmo, the lovely muppet from Sesame Street.
