With festive season in full swing, its time to begin preparing sweets. The first sweet I made this season is Mango Kalakand. If you love Kalakand, this is your treat. And if you love mangoes, what better way to extend the mango season in to late autumn and indeed even winter.

Its summer and strawberry season is in full swing. Farmer's markets, super markets, coops are all well stocked with the luscious red berries. Though we have been enjoying the berries since April, last week we decided that it was time to go strawberry picking. It was our first time in hereabouts, we had great weather in the valley, and we loved it. The strawberries were small but sweet and full of flavor, We ate way too may and picked over 10 lbs to bring home!!

While it has been years since I baked anything with a streusel topping, I have to say bakes with a crumble have always been a favorite with me. Streusel toppings always remind me of the cold Midwest winters, snowy evenings, and the warm smell of cinnamon wafting through our home! So its quite contrary that I am baking a Blueberry Crumble Coffeecake right at the start of a hot summer.

Here is a another recipe for our all time favorite snack: Chivda. This time I am sharing a recipe for Chivda made with pre-roasted pohe. This is available in Indian stores. It has no seasoning or spices in it and is only roasted. I often purchase this for munching as is but I also love to make Chivda with it. The end product is very crunchy and highly addictive.
