Best Cookies in the World!

I swear I haven't been paid (in cash or cookies) to say this sadly, but the cookies at Ben's Cookies are the BEST that you will have anywhere in the world. You will agree with me as soon as you try it, especially if you are lucky enough to find them hot from the oven at the counter.

 I know this brand from Covent Garden in London and saw its slow and steady expansion to other locations in London and then to other cities. The first other city I saw it in was Bath and I remember exclaiming with pure glee to see the all-too-familiar Red board and smell the delectable cookies.

It would have definitely been one big food brand I would have missed when I moved to Dubai but alas! I had to look no further than Dubai Mall!

Eggless Crepes

A first but hopefully recurrent topic on this blog would be about healthy vegetarian cooking. The other day, my husband and I were thinking of all kinds of soft food ideas which were interesting yet low on effort and while looking online, I found this incredibly easy recipe for making Eggless Crepes:

Prep Time: 7 mins

1/2 cup plain flour (maida)

1/2 cup cornflour

1/2 cup milk

a pinch of salt

1 tbsp melted butter for greasing and cooking


1. Whisk all the ingredients together until the correct consistency is achieved

2. Heat a non-stick pan, ladle out the above mix and cook with butter

Voila! Yes thats it.. We tried this with Spinach, Corn and Cheese first and with Hershey's Chocolate and Cinnamon buttons later and were left licking our fingers both times!

A great option for easy yet exciting dinner!

How it started

Pardon the Corelle plates and clearly visible IKEA spoon, I wasn't expecting the crepes to turn out blog-worthy!
