Malted Milk Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ever since I saw these cookies on 'The Pioneer Woman' show, I wanted to try them. The weather here is chilly and it was perfect time for baking. I guess I already mentioned in my classic chocolate chip cookies post that I can never get enough of these delicious goodies. Any variation of these cookies is a mouth watering treat. 
This recipe yields flat and chewy cookies, just the way I like them. Also, I love the subtle flavor of malted milk. This recipe is definitely a keeper, go here for details.

Back from Vacation

We are back from our India trip. I guess you never really have enough time for vacation in India, so many people to meet, places to visit :-)
At least we were able to accomplish our top priority activities - visit temples, eat favorite dishes made by Mom and spend time in country side environment with our family. I still have to sort my pictures but sharing few random ones.
Country side - Sugarcane fields

Village scenery

Rangoli with oil lamps & flower petals

Fresh picked guavas - my absolute fav

Tulasi plant - a must in Indian household

Tropical flowers

Neelambara flowers

Curry leaves - essential in Indian cooking
