    Guest No. 2 on the blog My second guest on the blog is my dear kaki (chachi) Charulata. Always there for me, my helper, my adviser and my sympathizer. She probably has heard a million woes from me and never has she once said “oh no Mayuri not again.” She started a fashion designing course which she had to leave half way. However her love affair with fabrics didn’t end there. While I run a mile(or rather miles) away from a sewing machine and needles, she developed a passion for stitching since she was 8! At that age I probably was helping my mum peel carrots and potatoes and reading books.My kaki is an ace quilter. She creates magic with patches. I’ve watched her work…

    Sunday is Pizza Day I’ve made pizzas when my kids were at home, when we’ve invited guests, to celebrate special occasions. Years back we didn’t get frozen pizzas, or ready made pizza base. There were not many places making pizzas back then, so the only option was to make them at home.Made them quite often but never ever thought of posting my pizza recipe. Actually don’t know why I haven’t done so till now. Well, as they say its never too late. I must thank my #FoodieMonday #Bloghop friends for choosing the 41st theme as #Pizzamania.         Normally on a Sunday hubby and I go to our favourite restaurant IL Covo to have either a pizza or lasagna. We usually land up with…

    a delightful treat    When Aparna of My Diverse Kitchen suggested we bake pizzas for the ‘We knead to bake September challenge’, I thought yum… the options can be endless. The base and/or topping had to be different from the ones we make usually. I read the posting during my trip to Italy. Everywhere from then I was looking out for a different type of pizza. Unfortunately, didn’t find any except when we stayed in a hotel in Baveno. They served a fruit pizza for breakfast. The fruit was beautifully arranged on the base. That gave me an idea… I would bake a fruit pizza. As other fellow bloggers posted their baked pizzas, most of them were savoury ones so my decision to concentrate on…

    not eggplants again !   During my holiday in Italy, I was a bit disappointed that the choice for vegetarians was very limited. Margherita pizzas, pasta with tomato sauce, pasta with mushrooms or cold grilled vegetables. Usually it would be grilled eggplants, zucchini and pepper. No garlic or onion flavour and forget about getting any chilli flakes. Pizza hut and Dominos spoil us by giving us endless satchets of chilli flakes. Italian restaurants in India and Kenya give us chilli oil, yummy chilli sauces, pestos that are chilli. However, visit any restaurant in Italy and its difficult to find any of those extra condiments… no extra olive oil, chilli oil, chilli flakes, salt or pepper ! I had vowed to my hubby dear that once…
