Time-Tested Treasures

Recipe: Grilled Chicken and Veggie Kebabs

The other day my parents announced that they were going to throw out some old stuff. Amongst them was the Philips table-top kebab grill which did not work anymore.

Grilled meat was one of my favourites ever since I was a child and suddenly a big part of my childhood seemed tied to that gadget. This grill and the happy times we had with it was etched into memory. I couldn't let them throw it away. Even though this machine is as old as I am, I begged them to let me keep it.

Oranges and Love

Recipe: Orange Mini-Icecream-Cakes

The blogosphere is buzzing with excitement for Valentines day... Have you planned anything special for your loved ones?

But what exactly is true love?

Is it "selfless care for the good of another"?

Or "Deep emotional attachment towards another person".

These definitions seem incomplete to explain the entirety of love.

Here is an interesting write-up about it.

Even though it is arguable that any day is perfect to show your special someone that they are indeed the centre of your universe, it is still nice to have a day appointed for it and to hear about the things people do for each other on this day :)

Weighty Wins

Recipe: Salted Almond Praline

As I look back on the past year, I realize that I have grown...

The only problem is that all my growth has been in size and that too horizontal ! :(

The funny thing is that I didnt look so fat when I looked at myself in the mirror....  It's only in photographs I looked ballooned up. (Later J informed me that the mirrors in our house actually makes one look thin!) When clothes got tighter, I just assumed that the fabric had shrunk and murmured to myself that they dont make clothes the way they used to!
