Sexy Claws

It is hard to find some large heavy crabs in the markets often.  Then there is always the temptation to try out a new recipe with crab meat but when the crabs get home I can only think of eating them in traditional goan preparation called Crab Xec Xec or cooked with some Recheiado masala.  So this time it was Crab Xec Xec a red gravy using roasted coconut.

Swedish Tea Ring

Swedish Tea Ring
After having tried the Chelsea buns, the Swedish tea ring seemed easy.  And easy it was.  My nephews were over and I look forward to cook something for the boys.  I helped two year old Kieran,  plonk himself on the kitchen platform right next to where I was working.  He watched me knead the dough as he dangled his tiny feet and entertained me with his blabber.  As the dough was resting, Keagan, Kieran and me got busy reading the story of the 'Seven Little Postmen' and 'Hansel and Gretel' and some more till it was time for me to get back to my dough.  I let the boys do some colouring whilst I started putting the swedish tea ring together.
