  • That time of the year when you get to enjoy doodh pheni.
  • We celebrated Diwali with friends and family. I spent months planning it, weeks dreaming about putting together the little details and days cooking. It was sparkliest evening ever!

  • “Winters” have arrived which means it’s the time for Farmer’s Market.
  • Which also mean we have been in the park every other weekend.

  • Came across this interesting cake and had to give it a go.
  • This Diwali we celebrated Christmas too because a dear friend was here with us.

Row 5: left to right

  • I have been making loads of edible gifts; spice rubs.
