    EVENT: A- Z CHALLENGE THEME : A DISH BEGINNING WITH THE LETTER C What is the A- Z Challenge? Well, we’re a Facebook group and every alternate month the participants make a dish with the  relevant letter. The group was started in May 2018 by Jolly Makkar and Vidya Narayan.  For September we have to post a recipe with the letter C. The star ingredient for the dish should begin with C. I must admit that when I was in Montreal, hubby and I enjoyed all the berries that were in full season. We also had loads of succulent, ruby red, sweet cherries. So cherries is what I used for this theme. I usually cannot plan well ahead for any of the group events that I’m…

    MEGA BLOGGING MARATHON -SEPT 2017 #80TH BLOGGING MARATHON THEME: PROTEIN RICH DISHES DAY:11 I have always envied bloggers who get all the ingredients they need for their recipes. However my hubby thinks otherwise. He claims that if I did have access to all the ingredients I’d be living in my kitchen,he would put on weight and my neighbors would not prepare food in their homes! Well, that’s not entirely true. There are days when I don’t even want to lift a spoon, forget about preparing anything. At that time making a simple khichdi too becomes a humungous task. Since Srivalli announced the Mega Blogging Marathon theme, Veena a co member and blogger asked me why I wasn’t taking part. I told her that I definitely will not manage…

    very berry yummy       Today was not such a great day for me. From the time I woke up I was on the go and trying to juggle so many chores all together. In all this what did I sacrifice? My exercise. By noon I was feeling a bit relieved that chores were getting ticked off my list. However come evening and again I experienced a general slum in my overall existence. Felt bad that I sacrificed exercise to do other chores. I questioned myself and thought why didn’t I sacrifice my meal time? However, things had to be done so there was no other option. To add to the fight for time, I had to sit at the national id card office…

    Happy Raksha Bandhan  My post is a bit late for Raksha Bandhan day but these days in a fast hectic life with all modern technology, late posts are normal. Imagine, the rakhi that should have reached the earliest will probably reached last. The distance to cover was just Mombasa Nairobi. My foreign residing brothers and cousins have all got their rakhis but not my local cousin. As they say snail mail, but according to a BBC report, snails are not as slow as we imagine them to be. They can cover large distances in a short period. Coming back to Raksha Bandhan day, its been ages since I have physically been with my brothers and cousins to tie the rakhis. Perhaps next year. When I…

    happy 50th birthday to my dear brother My brother’s 50th birthday and I am so far away. Feel a bit jealous as my sister is going to be with him today. Though everyone says that modern communication methods makes the distance smaller, but its not the same as physically being there. My dear brother is a simple, reliable, honest and lovable person. We do have our differences but at the end of the day, he is always there for me, come what may. He is a wonderful uncle to my kids, fun loving, caring and dependable. Nimesh, hope you have a wonderful day today. May God bless you with happiness, good health and may all you wishes come true. To celebrate your birthday, I have…

  • 213. passion fruit cheesecake

    passionate about a passion fruit I have been away for a long time. Some of my friends have been asking whether I have stopped blogging. The answer is definitely not. December was just too hectic…. family wedding, guests and a bugging flu and fever with a persistent cough. Still getting over the cough. I have been cooking and noting down the measurements. My note book is filled with squiggly fonts in red, black and blue. I had to start blogging before those squiggly fonts become indecipherable to me. Last week some friends came over for dessert and   I made some cheesecake. Most cold cheesecakes have eggs or are gelatin based. I tried out the cheesecake using agar agar flakes and loved the end result.…
