10 Favourite Dishes on Cookups so far – Editor’s Choice

When we started Cookups, we were pretty confident that we would find a lot of talented home Cooks but as everybody’s offers kept pouring in, we realized that we had no idea about the sheer scope of their talent. The fact that Cookups allowed us to sit at home, in our pajamas and have a…

The Not-So-Nice Nicoise

Salads. They are always a pain-in-the-ass to transport or make ahead of time. But given my recent weight gain after the Vietnam trip (my god, the street food!), it had to be done. We had some cans of tuna lying around so I decided to go with a Nicoise Salad. The Nicoise originally hails from…

Italian Baked Red Snapper

So you know how your taste buds change and keep evolving? Fish is one of those things I absolutely loathed as a child, but have gotten quite fond of as I’ve gotten older. I was in the mood for something different that we’ve not tried and Succulent Ape left the decision-making (yay!) and the cooking…

Corned Beef Hash Bash

After moving back from the US, corned beef hash has always been something I dreamed of but seldom made. It’s that perfect brunch food that you never get in Bangladesh, which is strange, considering it’s a very Bangali, (beef and alu bhaji) kinda dish as far as taste. I had it on the menu back…

Shake your Shakshuka

Breakfast – to me it’s the most important meal of the day, to get your day off on the right foot. A week or so ago, I saw somebody posted about Shaksuka on FB and of course, my impressionable mind (and tummy) felt the hunger pangs immediately. Before, that post would have sent us off…

Chicken Cacciatore by Pioneer Woman

So the other day, I was at lunch with my old school friends and they said to me, “oh! I didn’t know you were into cooking/food blogging,” and I reminded one of them that she had actually eaten my cooking once ten years ago. It was a dish from the book I had blogged about before,…

Spanish Paella by Chef Adman

Here’s our third guest blog post by Chef Adman who made some delicious Paella which we wolfed down with some Bangali style salad. Please do try this at home! —–X—– I find Spanish Paella to be a very soothing comfort food to eat.  Maybe because I come from a background where rice eating is big…

Not-so-sucky Moussaka (Gluten-free)

Moussaka. The name screams “girly boy.” I mean lets be real — no self respecting mysogynist would be caught dead eating something with eggplants and raisins. However, in our constant battle with health vs. waist-wealth, the Cosmic Chef and I’ve recently decided to go gluten-free for as long as possible, and moussaka is basically like a lasagna…
