I’m back after so long, that it feels almost like I’d been in exile!

But instead I have a story for you! A story that is recorded in the annals of my family’s history…..

A long, long time back, when dinosaurs roamed the earth, and the internet was born, there was a woman (she may, or may not have been me). She constantly browsed foodie sites on the net and saved recipes for cookies and brownies and cakes.

One sad day her internet was especially slow. So she complained to her son, Prince Charming! (Did I not tell you that she was the Queen of surfing the internet !?!)

He said, “Ma, just delete the cookies, and your computer will be fine!” The Princes in my family—-what can I say? No etiquette.

With a heavy heart and many sighs, the Queen, deleted all her cookie recipes.

Think of Sleeping Beauty’s parents’ anguish at having to watch her sleep for a 100 years…..think of Belle’s despair at having to leave her old doddering dad…..

Still, not a patch on our Queen’s sorrow on parting with her beloved cookies.

Once the dark deed was done, she came to her son and told him, “Son, my computer is still very slow. Even though I deleted all the cookies. Do I have to delete my brownies too?”


The Prince has been banished to distant Boston, because he rolled around laughing…..


The Queen then spent her energies creating a purple dragon (albeit a cute one) to guard her castle computer.







And then they lived happily ever after……



  1. HAHAHAAAAAA… I am right there with the Prince rolling on the floor. In fact, I just sprayed tea all over my iPad as I read your post. I’m hoping this is ALL fiction and, if not, that your cute little dragon is stealthily guarding the fort. xx

  2. That is VERY funny! The dragon is very nice!

  3. So cute and beautifully made Rahika! xxx

  4. Radhika, Good to see you on WP and with such an adorable creation. The funny story worked perfectly. Lost your cookies recipe collection?… arrggh!
    Mine is banished to Arizona. 😀

  5. There’s no need for the Queen to cry, she still has the treasure and the guardian, isn’t she?!

    Very cute dragon, Radhika 🙂 The cake looks amazing, perfect colour combination, I love it!


  6. Love that story Radhika!

  7. Oh you had me rolling in laughter too. Where will you banish me? so funny! And my goodness, you’ve outdone yourself with this dragon. I LOVE IT!!!!!

  8. Speechless… I am just speechless. Your dragon looks so life-like, I wouldn’t be entirely surprised if it got up off of that cake and flew away! Amazing story to go with it, too. 😉

  9. A purple dragon can always cheer you up! But I cannot understand his sad expression…is it because you deleted all your cookies!
