Namaste

Namaste and a warm welcome to all.

As you can see my blog is about food and recipes. I love eating and trying out new recipes all the time.

Very often we mum's think of healthy and interesting food options that we can make for our kids especially when they are back from school knowing that their lunch boxes never come back home empty. Hence I always feel its important to give them a healthy and wholesome snack once they are home. When my kid comes home from school I always try and give him some source of carbohydrate combined with proteins along with this, a fruit and milk, or puddings made from milk. Kids normally can't eat too much at one time, so the portions can be small but giving them a little from each of these food group ensures a balanced meal.

I have some interesting ideas that I'd like to share with you all. You might find some of my recipes very basic but I am hoping that my blog is helpful not only for Indians but for people all around the world! Indian food is quite popular and enjoyed by most, so hopefully you can attempt recipes from here and make it yourself now, in your kitchen. Please do go through my recipes and give it a shot at trying them. Let me know how things turned out and if you enjoyed your experience of cooking.... Feel free to get in touch, share your experience, leave a comment or ask any questions you may have. Thank you for stopping by and taking a look! I do hope its helpful.

Happy cooking!

THE BAKERY


I never thought this hobby of mine would turn into a profession....Its only because of my near and dear friends who encouraged me and pushed me to do the cakes on their special occasions, which I would have never even attempted to do otherwise. Hence this page is for thanking all my dear friends and well wishers for whom I've attempted all these cakes and cup cakes, because of whom I have all the confidence today in trying out new techniques and different concepts in baking & decorating. Also a very big thank you to special friends who have always shared their information and knowledge of baking with me to bring me where I am now.....This is only the beginning of my journey into baking...
