An Indian-Inspired Dessert

This fruity, creamy, sweet, and filling dessert is an Indian version of the ultimate ice cream parfait. Named Gadbad, the dessert is often made with layers of jello, fresh and dried fruit, nuts, and different flavors of Indian ice cream (pistachio, mango, etc.).

My sister made this dessert when I was back home for break, so I can’t wait to go back home for summer and have this ice cream parfait again!

Here are two more shots from that day though they don’t quite fit the title of this post:

Haven’t posted in a while, but found these photos hidden in my summer album on iPhoto. Hope you all are doing well!

As a fan of sunlight, green grass, and bright study spots, I was slightly disappointed to see gray skies and wet mud as I walked around campus today. But once I sat at my desk, equipped with study fuel (iced hazelnut coffee), I realized that this cloudy day wasn’t all that gloomy. Looking outside from the comfort of my dorm room, the bare branches of the trees seemed to take on a new depth and the windows a different tone – which of course meant that I had to attempt to photograph them! :)

Hi, everyone!

So sorry for the lack of updates. It is that time of the semester – finals week! Because I will also be studying for my medical school entrance exam over the winter holidays, I won’t be able to update the blog until mid-January :( Hope everyone has a wonderful holiday!

iPhone Wallpaper

Hello everyone! So I decided to try something a little different for this blog post. Since I was in middle school, I’ve always really enjoyed graphic design and editing. This hobby led into my involvement in graphic design for my high school newspaper and my university’s international magazine. In need of a new phone wallpaper, I decided to edit one of my older photos from this post and put it up as a freebie for anyone to use :)

Let me know if you would like to see more of these kinds of posts! And sorry for the lack of updates – junior year of college is keeping me very busy!

Macarons

Macarons

As the summer started, I made a goal to try at least one new type of food during my time away from school. After seeing photo after photo on Instagram of these beautiful desserts, I decided to join the macaron craze. We bought a box of six, with each color representing a unique flavor like rose, raspberry, and pistachio. As I bit into the cookie, I was surprised at the complementary mix of soft and crunchy, airy and gooey.

Also – writing this post is making me want to go home just to get another box!

Hope you all are having a great weekend!
