Date & Walnut Birthday Cake!!!

Parenting is indeed a learning journey!

Each day is a new day, learning and exploring the wonders of our little bundle of joy!

This anecdote reminded me of John Lock's Theory of  “Tabula Rasa”. 

When a child is born, the mind is described as a 'blank slate' in Latin. An individual grows up as a product of an interaction between his environment and heredity. 

A dose of positive reinforcement and modeling helps to develop self-esteem and identity in the child.

 The energies can be channelized to harvest the best potential which will enable a child to carve a niche on the world map. 

I really wonder if my little one might be inspired to become somebody like Wright Brothers, Einstein or Da Vinci, one day! 

Date & Walnut Cake for the D Day!

Rose Ice Cream for Wedding Anniversary!

A Wedding Anniversary is a day to celebrate the sweet memories and bond of unconditional love. Wish life could go in Slow-Mo on this special day of all !

As I pause today to refresh the memories and  have reminisces of the  beautiful and blissful times. 

I also reflect on the art of living I learnt all the way from the lessons of life, while nurturing my family. It is the need to lean on each other's strength and make an action plan to swap the Achilles heel/weaknesses into surprising skills!!! 

This day, is a time to refresh and share the memories down the lane...!

 We had traditional Indian Hindu wedding with "Saptapadi" which signifies the auspicious "Seven Steps". The majestic Seven Vows of Marriage are to nourish each other, to remain friends forever, to be together forever, to care for our children, to share joys and sorrows, to preserve our wealth and most importantly to grow together in strengths and forgive and forego each other's weaknesses!
The time flew and years after years rolled up in a breeze...!!!! 

The reminisces of all these moments make me realize that I ought to make the best of the present time and cherish the priceless memories!!!

This year, on our anniversary I decided to make Rose flavored Ice cream in the Rose Moulds, to keep it festive and flavorful!!!

Rose Ice cream with Fresh Roses & Silver Pearls!!

Delicate Rose flavored Ice cream - Super Creamy & Sumptuous!!!

Rose Ice cream - Flavorful and Festive!!!

Rose Ice-cream with fresh Rose, Silver Pearls and Rose Moulds!!!

The ice-cream was made with milk, heavy cream, fresh roses - gulkand, in rose moulds and finally garnished with silver pearls and rose petals. 

The ice-cream turned out to be super creamy and delicious, with a delicate flavor of rose and a very subtle pink shade in ombre effect. We thoroughly enjoyed it!!! 

The only tricky part was demoulding the ice-cream and refraining from having a bite before the shoot:)) But now we have mastered that art too by making a separate serving and relishing:))) and other tricky part is to run an extra mile other day!

 I also tried making keto pumpkin ice-cream and shall be sharing the post shortly!

Hope you all will enjoy Rose Ice cream! Have a great day and thank you so much for stopping by my space.

Cheers, MCF!!!

The past year was indeed eventful and taught many precious lessons to the entire mankind from the university of life! I spent days together to Reflect, Learn, Unlearn and Relearn about the essence of life and yet pondering on myriad things after witnessing the historic moments of the Year 2020. 

I hope the new year turns out to be bright and beautiful, ushering new opportunities of growth, new beginnings to dig into our vast reservoir of skills and competencies and begin our journey of riveting our best-selves!
