DSC_1162

The house is beginning to resemble a home somewhat though I have to yet be able to locate everything I packed. The good news is I figured out where the camera and laptop are and so this week’s posts are kind of better than last week’s. This is first of my three posts for the theme, ‘Savory Bakes’ that I am hosting, part of the Kids’ Delight series started by Srivalli.

    The cumin adds a nice flavor to savory bakes and these cookies must have tasted great.

  2. The flower shaped cookies are so cute. I am a fan of savoury cookies and I am sure these cumin flavoured one would be absolutely.
