Tagged by Rupali.......Questions and Answers :)

Here are the tag questions ....
1. Are you a vegetarian, or have you thought about being one?
I am a pure vegetarian...don't use eggs or fish in my cooking..although they do count as  vegetarian..whenever I buy any product I always check the labels first.

2. Who inspired you to cook or bake?
Hmmmmmmmm...tough question to answer...I've seen most of the bloggers answer this question by saying that they are inspired by their mums or my case I will answer this question little different...since young age I wanted to learn to cook..I built that passion on my I am a foodie;)..My mum was a working Mum...she never had a passion for cooking..she had so many other qualities in her ..which I adore...that doesn't mean that she wasn't making good food..whatever she was making I always loved it..

3. How do you celebrate Christmas?...or a favorite holiday of your choice?
In India we never celebrated Christmas..Past 19 yrs I celebrate Christmas with my family at home..we do decorate a Christmas tree, exchange gifts and cards with friends and so many great movies and Christmas programmes together...specially we love to watch " SNOWMAN " on Christmas eve...Indulging in Mince pies with custard..basically I love to spend time together with my loved ones...but same time I  love my" ME time " tooooooooooooooooooooooo;)

"Christmas as a child - Awesome! Christmas as an adult - Sweet! Christmas watching your child smile for days on end - Priceless!"

having said that this year we didn't have a joyful we all were in a very bad no one was in the mood to celebrate...My favourite holiday of my choice is to go somewhere where you can stay very near to nature...could be snowy mountains, sun and sea or lush Jungles or woodland where I can walk miles and miles with my I-pod...:)

4. Do you prefer to celebrate New Year's Eve with friends and/or family, or prefer to ring in the New Year quietly, and privately, at home?
I do love to celebrate New Year's eve with family and home or maybe a night club too...depends...

5. If someone were to ask you to bring dessert to a party, what would you bring? Store bought, or homemade, and if you were to make homemade, what would you make?

Depends on time...if I am informed well in advance I definitely love to make dessert at home..coz cooking is my passion and I would love to give people a homemade taste..having said that I need to know number of people sorry I can't cater for more than 15-20 people..;)...If I make dessert I would see the theme of the party and menu as well.....if they need Indian dessert or any to make any type of Halwa,kala Jamun,fruit salad,Pannacotta, cheesecakes, shrikhand or bread and butter pudding...ohhhhh I am drooling guys;)

6. How will you celebrate your next birthday?
I always believed in Fate...I do not plan or build so many is a unpredictable...but having said that I do enjoy and celebrate my birthday with my loved ones...and I love those mystery pressies from hubby and kids........I am hinting here hope they are reading this
...because my next birthday is going to be very important number..any guesses.......?;)

7. Do you have a New Year's resolution-and will you be sticking to it?
ha ha ha.........every year I do make resolution and break too........Guys resolutions are here to break..otherwise you can't make any resolutions can you?;)

1. What is your take on organic food, is it a big deal for you?
Tell you the truth I am not fussed about organic long as GM food is fresh, easily available and has lots of variety..who cares ?...
2. Do you time your breakfast, lunch & dinner or eat when you are hungry?

I do prefer give it a fix time and managing it quite well ...

3. What inspired you to write a food blog?
My passion of cooking started at a very early age...if I liked something I did not get hesitate to ask people for that recipe and would write it down in a notebook....I do make so many dishes...same time I like to try it out other's too.. last year this time I was going through a sad time (I lost my MUM).. just a thought came in my mind and I discussed it with my hubby and kids..they encouraged me and here I am with my own blog...Hoping my Grand Kids will visit my blog and learn something from here;)

4. You try a new recipe and it does not turn out good, what will you do?
I would leave it that time..but do try it out again soon

5. Name three ingredients you consciously avoid or eliminate even when the recipe calls for it?
Eggs, Meat ( I use veg option) and Mushroom

6. Name three things you have to use in most recipes?
Ginger, Garlic and Green Chillies 

7. How important is eating meals together as a family to you?
Very very important to have meals together as a family..However when kids were small they were making me angry with their fussy eating habits..but I never gave up and now they are ready to try anything..;)
8. You do not like a particular dish at your favorite restaurant, what will you do?
I never tell there and then..maybe after coming back home I would phone them or write them..UNLESS I SEE SOMETHING NASTY STUFF IN THE DISH...I would go maddddddddddd...
