This Frozen Bulletproof Coffee is creamy without the cream

I love coffee. My standard order is simple: coffee with milk, no sugar. I don’t veer off into milkshake-land or over-sweetened hot-chocolate-type drinks with folds of fluffy whipped cream.

So when bulletproof coffee — usually a mug of joe blended with butter — became trendy a few years ago, it was a non-issue for me. Why mess with 30 years of simple coffee-drinking perfection?

Indian spices add variation to date cake

I love baking but until I was 16, our oven was just used as a place to keep big cutting boards and exiled frying pans.

My Indian parents were of a place and time where no one had ovens at home. All breads were flatbreads, like chapattis, which were hand-rolled and cooked on the stove and all cakes, if any, were either baked with the help of the village bakery or purchased.

Grandmother’s apple cake signals fall

My grandmother, who lived with us when I was growing up, had a serious sweet tooth and would bake something almost every day.

In the spring, it was coconut cream pie. In the summer, home-made ice cream and peach pie. And during fall apple season, she would bake this very simple apple cake and serve it warm with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
