Back after my break :)

Hello Friends !!

I am back after a long break. And that was refreshing indeed :) My in-law was visiting us. Hence I was really busy. Did I mention I started driving around quiet a lot after I got my licence 3 months back? Yes thats the most exciting thing I do now. I never realized until now , when I drive alone, that driving is exciting as well as fun. We visited Niagara (that was my first trip too), and had a really wonderful time watching the amazing falls there. I had never been so close to any waterfall before like this. Me and V shared our driving, so that was the first time I drove 8 hours on a highway. That was indeed tiring, but a very new experience.

We also went to the Southwick Zoo in Mendon,MA. Loved feeding the Deers. It tickles when they lick our hand :-) ....We also visited the Old Sturbridge Village in Mendon where we got to see how people lived during the old times. It was a different experience. The people in the village were dressed in their traditional attire of the old times. And any villager passing by , especially men , politely raise their hats when a woman passes by :)

I also learnt some new recipes which I will be posting soon. I thought of saying a big 'Hello' to all my friends and readers :) Thank you so much for writing to me. I would also like to Thank so many blogger friends of mine from whom I got many awards.

A peek into the recipes that will be posted soon:

- Pickle (Veg)
- Tofu gravy (Veg)
- Cake and Dessert
- Snacks (Veg and Non-Veg)

Dear Roopa and readers,

I am writing as the Editor of, where we are capturing a variety of Indian memories. We have a newly launched section called Dadi Nani Cooking, where each recipe has a personal story attached to it. The idea is to record how food was cooked/eaten/enjoyed in the past. Please check out

I would very much like to get such recipes from you - only 1-2 per person. Please contact me at

You can read a bit about me at
