Happy Diwali

My favorite Diwali wish this year ...

"Troubles as light as air, love as deep as the ocean, friends as solid as a diamond, and success as bright as the lustre of gold... This is what we wish for you this Diwali. May darkness never touch you and may your life always be lit with joy, happiness and prosperity. "

Rangoli to brighten up your place

Some home made Kesari and gulab jamun to sweeten your palate (recipes to follow in the next few posts)

Have a happy and safe Diwali . See you soon.

Of Opportunities lost

"Most people dont recognize oppurtunity when it comes , because its dressed in overalls and looks like a lot of work -Thomas Alva Edison"

6 years have passed since I gave birth ...to my blog. While there's no denying that I love it dearly, sometimes I wonder if I have treated it like a stepchild and not been able to nurture it the way I could have, so definitely feel some big time guilt. What if I could have had a gazillion more recipes on there, written tons more, connected more with my virtual family and readers and made more of a mark on the blogosphere. WHAT IF?
Lots of time has gone by and more food bloggers than I care to count , have sprouted on the horizon. Lots of opportunities gone..sigh! Looks like the pessimist in me has surfaced today.

But the optimist is never behind and it nudges me and says , " So what,time may have passed you by but one thing that hasn't changed over all this time is your connection and love for food." True that:)

Also "opportunities always look bigger going than coming" so maybe nothing is lost after all (breathes sigh of relief) I guess time will tell!

Iam alive, Iam kicking and I am BACK

"One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well."Virgina Woolf

I cannot agree more. The last two years have been really intense, busy, eventful and nail biting in every possible way. I had a baby, got a new job , bought a new house, spent endless sleepless nights being a mom and learnt how to balance all of the above or atleast try.If I didnt have good food to nourish my body and soul , things could ended a very different way.

Happy to report food and cooking are still my passions and that can never change no matter how life changes, so what if I applied the breaks for a little bit.Iam excited to return to it and now harbour dreams of teaching my daughter to cook someday just like my mom did. Can't wait :)

In the meantime, Iam alive, Iam kicking and I am BACK to Meenal's Kitchen:)
