My utopia would be to leave my job, sit at home, blog all day, try out new recipes, visit restaurants, go for cook ups and workshops and completely soak up the food world. But, then that’s why its utopic and not real life. Shift back to my usual day and I’m at home, working at office for 9 hours, coming back and cooking and just sometimes, when I’m in the mood to try out something innovative it appears on this blog — but, rarely at the time it should. I wish I could just set aside some time every week to put up at least 2 blog posts for you all before your interest peters out.
Anyway, Valentine’s Day was of course a month ago and Ishaaq was on a wedding shoot, but I was home and in the mood to bake something Valentiney. So I did what more than half the baking world was doing — I made Red Velvet Cupcakes (with cream cheese frosting, of course), except that it was my very first time.
I researched quite a few blogs and finally settled down on Purple Foodie‘s recipe. It seemed simple and easy and quick. So I went about preparing for these little cupcakes and was so glad I did.
