    Delicious desserts
    Her kahlua toast crunch is like crack for me... So good! Always a treat when Shikha makes desserts.

    Delicious desserts and fun vibes
    I bought granola and desserts from a pop-up event that Shikha did last year. The food was delicious and I bought lots of extra to share with my roommate and friends back home. It's always a pleasure to chat with her as well. Shikha is truly a confectionery countess!

    Can make desserts for anyone
    Shikha has a knack for making tasty, healthy desserts. I've had numerous, but one of her best was a vegan, Sicilian dessert. Paired with nutella, it was the best thing at the party!

    I loved Shikha's delicious brownies and cookies in college. It's awesome to see all her new creative recipes and stunning food photography on her blog these days!
