Award and Update

I'll start with the updates first and then move onto the award ceremony :)

I've not been well for a while now. Nothing serious, esnophil count in my blood was way too high and it was messing up with my breathing. It is much better now but I haven't yet got back to my normal life. The last two posts were scheduled earlier, as a part of preparing to volunteer for Yoga Teaching at Sivananda Ashram for a month. Life doesn't always go as you plan, I couldn't go to the ashram and instead I've been at home recuperating my health.

I started cooking a bit here and there, mostly experimental baking and I'm dying to share some really healthy cakes. The only thing stopping me is that I haven't photographed anything yet. I hope to share the recipe soon.

I'm on a quest to live life more compassionately, as a part of which I'm turning Vegan. You can read more about what lead me to consider this as an option in this post. Now you can look forward to more of vegan recipes here. I do bake with eggs for my husband who has no plans to ever turn vegan or vegetarian. So you can expect to see some baked goodies containing eggs n milk until, I find a good substitute for eggs to fool my husband. ;)

Now the exciting part- The Versatile Blogger award was passed to me from Princy Vinoth @ Spicy Food and Maha @ Maha's Lovely Home. Thanks a ton to you guys for considering me worthy of this award.

3. Share 7 completely random pieces of information about yourself.
4. Include this set of rules.
5. Forward this award to 15 fellow bloggers and inform them with a comment on each of their blogs.

1. I love dark chocolates 70% cocoa or more (means less sugar and milk solids). I hate to add sugar in fruit juices smoothies and coffee as it masks the original taste of the fruits and coffee.

2. I really struggle with Food photography, despite the fact that I have a great camera and some really awesome props.

3. I love baking cakes, creating desserts, experimenting with food in general. In pursuit of creating something extraordinary, I do drastic things and most experiments turn out to be disastrous. :)

4. I love Kerala, I love living in the village despite the fact that internet is bad and I have to travel far to get the stuff I need for baking etc. I love the slow paced life here.

5. I like reading but I have a hard time writing, I struggle to find the right words to express myself. "jo bhi main kehna chahoon, barbaad kare, alfaaz mere" That's the song from Rockstar, Bollywood movie; I had to borrow the words to express myself here.

6. I really love blogging, when I just have to take pictures and Mom is cooking. I miss her.

7. I wish to learn all the Sadhya recipes my mom's style by Onam 2013. (2012 Onam is just too early for me)
