Hello friends ..I am writing my first post of March, can't believe how quickly February passed. Weather is cold and dry here. Hopefully, March will bring some comfort from this dreary weather. I noticed some daffodils blossoming in my neighborhood today. So I hope, Spring will arrive soon. When weather is cold, I turned to more hearty and warming dishes and preferably one pot meal. That 's what I am cooking more these days. Hearty and healthy, I like making Dalia Pulav (Broken Wheat) with lots of veggies. I prefer to add apple too with veggies for crunch. Here is the link to the video that you can see, hope you will like it.

And yummy Banana Bread for tea time....really good recipe from Martha Stewart's website. Here is the link
Hope you will give it a try...I will be writing my next post soon!

Hello Friends... thanks for visiting my blog & Facebook page, I really appreciate it. Today, I am sharing this inexpensive decor idea that I saw on Pinterest. It's an easy project children will love it too. All you need is an old book or paper of your choice, a piece of a cardboard ( i cut mine in circle), and glue. It's pretty simple, I folded the page in a cone shape and start gluing them on the cardboard circle one by one starting from the outer edge and then moving inward as you can see in pictures below...
Pinterest Board and Video you can watch!

Last Friday, on Valentine Day, I baked these yummy cookies with my kids. I am not much of a baker but doing something with kids is fun and that was the motivation. They love cookies and cakes like me. This year, I have decided to learn or try two new recipe every month.So I started looking for the easy recipe that will suit for the beginners like me.I have found this recipe on Martha Stewart and there is a video too that you can watch on You tube. These cookies are really delicious and I ended up making two batches because first one really finished fast. My daughter decided to make the heart shape ones, to fit the occasion. She is learning fractions in school so she helped out in measuring the ingredients. Both of them, were busy making their own best and marking them so they can find their cookies. We had fun making cookies and doing it together was the best part of it. I don't have the pictures of the process of making but here is the link to video and recipe ..

Hello Dear friends...hope you all are doing well. This year, part of my goal is to organize better and find ways to teach children the same. Its really frustrating when you are searching for things around the house and you can't find it. So I am trying to simplifying things and making designated spots for every thing these days. And where I am going to start first...obviously the kitchen. One of the biggest challenge is to store the plastic grocery bags. I need it all the time for small garbage bins. Earlier I was shoving them in a bigger bag...well not now because I have made a pretty spot for it. So now, as soon as grocery bags come inside the house I fold them and put them in this cute container I made. Once the container is full I just recycle the rest.That way I am not collecting too much. Here are few pictures how I made it ...
Then to cover the top I made a canopy with a construction paper...
and its done.

Hi there...Hope this new year will bring health and happiness for everyone. So here I am bringing the first post of the month...soft cuddly braided scarf. Its easy and fun to make... all you need is a ball of pompom yarn and a little free time. Here are the pictures to explain...
Step 3 Tie up both ends with a yarn. You can add felt flowers or ribbon flowers to deck up
Here is the final look...since I am using pompom yarn you can hardly see the braid and it gives a fluffy look to this scarf
