Experiences and Adventures

Being a mom to 2 lovely kids is a pleasure. Cooking with them can be full of emotions, ranging from joy to frustration (you would be if an egg was smashed or a jar of flour emptied out just on the day that you feel exhausted). Thanks to their appetites and enthusiasm we get to share a lot of memorable moments in the kitchen as we experiment and have fun in the most popular room of our house. Not all experiments are successful, but they are fun for sure. From shaping bread to letting ones imagination run wild with pastry dough or milk chocolate. Even plain simple chapati dough can become a base for interesting creations.
