A post for my patti..

"We are never too old for our grandparents" ~ Anonymous

Well, how true it is!! No matter how old we are, how many kids we have, whichever part of the world we are, we are the apple of the eyes for our grandparents. I am no exception!

So the other day when my good friend S at Ruchika cooks blogged about this event, I was thinking of breaking my blogging hibernation (hopefully) by posting the relationship my grandmother and I shared along with her favorite recipe.

Happy Birthday Nithya!

Our dear blogger pal, Nithya of 4th Sense Samayal (better known as the creative, innovative, enthusiastic blogger!!) is celebrating her birthday today! So friends, please join me in wishing her a very Happy Birthday and many many such wonderful returns of the day!
Happy Birthday Nithya!!

A Break!

Dear friends,

We are going on vacation to India for about 3 weeks. We would be welcoming the new year "2010" with our parents!!!!!! Hence my next post will be 2010 :) (reason being 1. enjoying the vacation 2. laptop is dead!) So new year to me means new hopes, new resolutions, new ideas for blogging and of course, new laptop too!

So Wishing you all Merry Christmas and a very Happy and Promising New Year!!!!


A tale of my trouble!

First of all, a million "Sorry" buddies, for not catching up with any of your posts of late. I would like to give the due credit to none other than my own "Laptop"...Argggghhhhh.... Somehow my laptop has gotten an idea that it is a 6 months old baby and it is craaaaaaawwwwwliiiiiing! (I feel even babies nowadays are faster!) Every single page/blog takes nearly 20 minutes to load, and if I start punching in the comments, that is another 20 minutes! I sometimes feel like throwing the laptop out of my balcony and happily wait for someone to take it away! :(

Talking in techincal terms, my CPU usage always shows 100% and the process "svchost.exe" seems to be culprit! No virus, all probes run clean!! I have already tried so many fixes but nothing seem to help. So any techies out there, if you have faced such issue and had a fix, please let me know!

Even this post, I am typing from the notepad, as that seems to be the only application not affected by the "god-knows-what" issue! So please bear with me for a while (a while can be a few hours, a few days or even a few weeks!) and I shall try to be back as soon as possible. However I'll try to post whenever my laptop permits me to do so!

Take care buddies and see you all soon! Till then, Happy Cooking and Happy Blogging!

Quick Reposts

I am always a 11th hour person. I start my assignments only a day before submission date and start studying for the exams just a day before. But somehow always I manage to finish it and stay out of trouble. So here I am, again on the last minute archiving my recipes for the events (with deadline today!)
