Product Review: Philips Electric Pressure Cooker

The hissing sound of a pressure cooker, the rattling of the weight or wobbler on its lid and the much anticipated whistle is quite nostalgia inducing because it reminds me of the long meals and their preps that used to take place in my childhood especially when I lived in my grandparent’s house. But, I have always been scared of using a conventional one. Once I was inches away from where the pot landed when it exploded and once I witnessed the aftermath in my neighbor’s house with ingredients all over the walls and roof. Cleaning nightmare!

Before I got this, I avoided making anything that needed pressure cooking. But
Electric pressure cooker really made my life easy, safe and it works almost silently. Model no. HD2178
This is only a pressure cooker. Advanced multi cookers have both slow & pressure cooking options where you can cook complete meals in one pot. I use mine only to tenderise beef or certain lentils and beans which serves me just fine. My blogger friend
has done a post on the need of multi-cooker in our households. Give that a read if you are interested in getting one.
It is easily one of my favourite gadgets in my kitchen. Tell me what is yours?

Heart Talk: My Journey ....

Whenever I visit a new place I am filled with gratitude. It reminds me of how incredibly blessed I am to be able to walk on this piece of earth so far away from where I was born.

10 Life Goals for 2021 and beyond...

It is hard to pen down in a single post what 2020 felt like. A whirlwind of events and emotions... where every day presented a new challenge. 

I am scared to make any resolutions for I don’t know what 2021 holds.

Product Review: Psoriasis & Summer Land Camels

A few weeks ago, I shared in my stories on Instagram about my husband suffering from an autoimmune skin condition called 'Psoriasis' and how it flared up a couple of months ago forcing us to take a more serious approach towards managing it. I am sharing all that I know about the condition; how we try to manage it with lifestyle changes and finding an effective skincare brand.

DIY Project: Bookshelf with Crates


A little DIY project where I made a bookshelf with crates from
for our hangout room (the 2nd room in the house with undecided future....)

Food Talk: Smoothies and Shakes (3 Recipes)

Since we started a conscious effort to keep our weight in control, we replaced some of our regular meals with low calorie, filling and yet nutritious alternatives. Smoothies and shakes became one of our regular dinner options on days when we have had a fuller lunch or when we are lazy to cook something. On more productive days we'd make a salad and some of our favourite recipes of salads are on the blog. 

Here I am sharing three of my favourite smoothies or shakes that we have instead of our regular meal.
