Her favourite word is two now. I can’t believe my little girl is growing up. My daughter and husband both like snacks. So I made this murukku for them today.

I am back

I know it’s been a while.There are so many posts to read and catch up on. Thanks to everyone who checked upon me. I have been cooking and taking photos but a bit lazy to write the actual post. From now on I will try to post atleast once a week. I have missed so many events. From now on I will try to contribute as much as possible. Life is busy and interesting with a toddler. Her smile just melts me. How are you guys doing? How is your life? I will try to catch upon blogs and leave comments whenever possible. I will be back with a recipe soon. Thanks everyone for thinking about me.
