    EVENT: A- Z CHALLENGE THEME : A DISH BEGINNING WITH THE LETTER D 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 November we have to post a recipe with the letter D. The star ingredient for the dish should begin with D.

    EVENT: DESI BLOGGERS CONNECT THEME: DIWALI DHAMAKA Desi Bloggers Connect is a Facebook Group where members support each other by sharing and commenting on each others post.

My body wants to sleep when the rest of this part of the world is up and about and lacks sleep when they are resting. In medical terms its known as desynchronosis but more commonly its called jet lag. Travelling from Montreal to London and then to Mombasa, the body is pretty confused. Last time it took several days before my routine came back. It appears that the same is going to happen again. The cooler rainy weather doesn’t help as I just want to curl up and go to sleep.     Well at the moment I am up so thought I should…

    EVENT: FOODIES_ REDOING OLD POSTS #10 What is the advantage of this theme? For the 10th week on Foodies_Redoing Old Posts, marble barfi got a new look.Old posts just get lost in the wide wide wide web unless they are very popular. Renu who blog’s at Cook with Renu has started a Facebook Group called Foodies_ Redoing Old Posts where every two weeks we can redo our old posts and share it on the group. What’s the advantage of doing this? Well, it gives us the opportunity to improve the write up, update photos and get comments. I’ve got so many old posts that need updating especially where the photos are concerned. This group definitely gives me the ‘push’ to prepare the dishes again for…
