Mango Lassi Cupcakes

Mango Lassi Cupcakes

I love lassi. Meethi Lassi(sweet lassi) is my favorite thing to order when I visit Lahore, but Mango lassi is something I order everywhere, because let's face it, it's the best! Yogurt and sweet mangoes blended into a thick milkshake consistency, it just screams summer to me. The tart yogurt balances the sweet mango so well. So obviously I was going to turn it into a dessert...

Classic Cheesecake

Classic Cheesecake

There's a lot to be said about a cheesecake. For one, there's nothing else like it. It's so rich in flavor, with the cream cheese slow cooked in the oven. It's lightly sweetened, as in my opinion, the best desserts are. The crust is just hearty enough to hold it together, but it doesn't over power the flavor one little bit. But most importantly, it's down right delicious! I love a classic cheesecake. And this one is good enough to be eaten all on its own. No berries or coolis in sight. As classic as this cheesecake is, I've tweaked it just a bit, obviously, to make it a little lighter. It still packs amazing flavor and texture, it's just on the fluffier side, and who doesn't like a fluffy cheesecake?

Orange Pound Cake

Orange Pound Cake

It was during these times that my Nani (Maternal Grandmother) would beam with pride as she cooked and baked her days away doing what she loved most. Feeding her family. This cake is something we all grew up eating. It never occurred to me to get a detailed recipe from my grandmother, and after she passed away I tried for years to get it right. It was during my time at Pastry School when I finally cracked it.
