2015 has been a very hectic year for me because a) I became a mother and b) We shifted to a new house. I won't say because of this I neglected my blog. I did as much as I could but was not at all consistent which effected my readership to a great level.

I love Blogging I would love to do that every single day but it is so time consuming that I skip it over other things that I have on my list. But trust me in this coming year I much more determined and passionate about Blogging.

I have been working on my new Blog design as well as have hired professionals to do the work. I would unleash the new look super soon. Also, coming to new year resolution and goals, I have only two this time and that is:
1. Writing posts that bring me joy more consistently
2. Staying fit and healthy.

I am doing a continuous effort to eat healthy. I would share my complete journey regarding same in my Blogpost next year which is already scheduled in my drafts.

For now please comment below telling what kind of posts would you like to see more on this Blog.

Coming to my 10 things to do in 2014, I kind of tick marked most of them:

Apart from 3 and 9, all were done. Infact Saving and getting has become a part of my lifestyle because of which I do not have to include it in my to do lists again. You know they are now mandatory for me for every year to come.

This is my way of putting an end to what 2015 has to offer and gearing up for 2016. Bring it on, I am all ready to shine. Leaving you with my favorite shots from 2015

1st Birthday Celebration

This is a very special post for me because my daughter turned 1 on 5th Dec 2015. I am really thankful to both my families for all the support, love and care. Upbringing a child is much more difficult than giving birth. But in India you have such a huge support system that it becomes really easy to handle it all.

For her first birthday we decided to go to Jaipur on a roadtrip and it was one of the best trips ever. I was terrified with the thought of amount of time we had to spent in car which could make my daughter cranky but to my surprise it all went smoothly. I tell you kids are the most unpredictable creatures ever. You never know what's coming next.

Anyways, I got her two dresses for her birthday. One from online website Little Muffet which I would be reviewing soon too and other from a boutique.
Sharing with you few pictures from a her birthday.

I made these caps for everyone. I got a special one for saanvi but she was just not interested in wearing one.

Vegetable Garlic Bread + Healthy version

Now a days I am on a mission to convert every dish I make to its healthy version. My recent victim was Garlic Bread. I bought a loaf of garlic bread because I love Garlic Bread with veggies and not only cheese as generally available in market; so I thought why not to try at home the way I like.

Healthy version requires little tweaks to be done here and there to the otherwise unhealthy version. So first I am sharing with you the basic (unhealthy in my terms) version.

Ingredients :

  • All the veggies: Finely chopped red,yellow and green capsicum , mushrooms and corns (These are what I used, you can use olives or jalapenos as well or any other vegetable you like)

  • Butter (you can also use Amul garlic butter if you like strong garlic flavour)
  • Cheese (Any pizza cheese) 
  • Garlic Bread: You can but a fresh loaf from a bakery shop and cut slices or else do like what I did. I bought Kitty Garlic Bread that is available at any grocery shop.

Method :

Procedure is really simple. In a bowl, melt butter. Take your bread and brush butter on both sides. Mix all chopped veggies and place a scoop on bread slice. Top it off with grated cheese.

Now place the bread in pre heated oven at 180 degree Celsius for approx 7 to 8 minutes or till the cheese melts and turns brown.

Tadaa !! Vegetable Garlic Bread is Ready !

Healthy version of Vegetable Garlic Bread

Now for the healthy version of same.
1. Take freshly baked multigrain bread and brush both sides with very little olive oil.

2. Apply a little garlic paste on one side.
3. Place all vegetables on it.
4. Lastly, top it with grated paneer.
5. Now place it in pre heated Air Fryer for 7 to minutes till base turns crispy.

Healthy version of garlic bread without any cheese and butter is ready.  Enjoy without any guilt.
