I am a true epicurean and by this post I am making debut of my cooking on wordpress. I would be sharing the recipes of some dishes tried by me (I am an experimental cook). I hope you guys will like this. Nothing is best to start this category with Christmas Cake. If it’s a Christmas how can I miss baking a cake? Yesterday I got so busy in the celebration that in the night I realized I forgot to make a cake myself. So I rushed to the kitchen and made this quick but cute cake. Given below is the recipe. Ingredients: 2 cups all purpose flour 1 cup castor sugar or normal sugar (you can increase and decrease the quantity as per your taste) 1 egg 1½ Teaspoon Chocolate spread 3/4th cup of Hershey’s coco powder Half teaspoon baking soda Half teaspoon baking powder Some cherries 50gms butter <for healthy cake 🙂 > 1 cup milk Few drops of chocolate and orange essence. (Orange syrup will add some citrus flavor) Method:
- Beat egg, milk, butter, sugar and chocolate spread together.
- In a bowl sieve flour and coco powder and add baking soda and baking powder, mix well.
- Now add beaten eggs, cake, sugar and butter mixture slowly in the flour. Put few drops of flavor essence. Mix well to avoid lumps.
- Add some water if required to make the batter in smooth thick pouring consistency. And add some cherries into it.
- Grease the baking dish and pour the batter.
- Microwave it to 5 to 6 minutes.
- Insert the fork to check if its bake. (if fork comes out without sticking, it’s a sign ur cake is ready)
- Now decorate your cake as per your liking.
Enjoy it with your loved ones. Merry Christams..!!! Bon appetite 🙂
You don’t have to be great to start, But you have to start to be great..!!! This is not a mere motivational line, it’s a reality of life. As a corporate trainer I come across with so many people who always justify of not doing a particular thing because they lack into it or call themselves incapable of doing it. For some people the industry is new, for some company is new and for the others profile or process. Really not a single session I come across with an audience where majority of people don’t give such dim reasons for their non performance. Be it a personal or professional we always tend to find escape board for not doing a specific task. In the past even I have given so many reasons for not doing a thing. Many of us don’t even try for once and jump to the conclusion how it’s going to result. It’s not all about incapability, it’s all about trepidation of what if I couldn’t perform well.
Some people say, “I can’t dance as I am not blessed with a flexible body.”
Some say, “I can’t give a presentation as I am not a good speaker.”
Some say. “The target can’t be achieved as figures are unrealistic.” Etc. etc. etc.
Just imagine our first day of a school or a dance class or a swimming class or our first job. We have never been so apprehensive of all these things. Rather we performed well. Have we ever given a thought why now I can’t do this at a level where I have gained so much knowledge?
The very first thing which was missing that time but now dominates our mind is FEAR.
So, first step is to be FEARLESS. Nothing is worst than not even attempting. At least give a try and you will definitely gain something and that will be your wonderful experience.
Give it a START
Accept the fact no one is born an expert. one has to start at some point. No one can reach at the finishing line without even starting a race. So let get started.
FOCUS & FOCUS
Don’t do anything half heart. All just need is focus; keep an eagle eye on your goals. Always remember the big battles are won only by focused approach.
NO ONE is going to JUDGE YOU.
Always remember whether you succeed or fail no one is going to judge your capability. All that matters is your attempt. What people think about you that should not be matter of concern. Sooner or later you will achieve your goals and then same group of critics will be all appreciating you.
Most important is NEVER EVER GIVE UP.
It is the main mantra of success. If you really want to achieve something be stick to your goals. Never ever give up no matter how hard the situation is or how long it is going to take to reach your goal. Always remember none of the battle was won overnight. Just try and try and success will be yours. sooner or later.
This is my old post which i am posting again as it has my fav. story.
After hectic busy working week I decided to plan something good for the weekend. But nothing was executed well, rather situation got worst on Saturday night as had a fight with my friends Agam & Neil. No one was at a fault. It was just simply out of frustration & irritation. I realized every one of us was losing control & becoming short tempered. That night I had an argument with Agam, we both were at high tone. I was hurt to hear him first time so rude without trying to analyze what he really means.Then happened a dramatic turn in the story. As usual Neil tried to act as an angel but I treated him literally as a Satin. Rest of the friends Shikha, Navdeep & Varun were trying to control the situation.
After a while we all became normal. Next day we all decided to go for a movie My Name Is Khan, Agam couldn’t accompany us as he was busy. It was tough to get the tickets but finally we got. I was so excited for this movie coz my all time favorite trio was there together after such a long time.
I was there at security check in waves where I noticed a simple sober lady dressed in pink suit. She was alone & I found that she was feeling bit uneasy. Her confused moves caught my attention & I started looking her ardently. I couldn’t understand what she was saying to the security guard but her confused moves were still there. By now it was clear to me that she was in a kind of problem. She was asking security guard, “plz take me to my husband who is standing near eating zone”.
I thought something went into her eyes or something else. Security guard replied “aaiye madam is side aaiye” (Madam plz come this side). But it was to the extent of my astonishment when she said to the security guard that I cannot see I am blind. Ahhh I was touched, I was standstill I went to my friends & narrated them everything & was searching her. I just wanted to see that lucky lady’s husband, that gentleman who took her for movie. I was happy to see her again but couldn’t find her husband as it was crowded i just moved here & there trying to have a look.
Finally my struggle for the search ended & I saw him. But still there was a guard with them & I could see that Gentleman talking to him. May be he was thanking him. But the next scene shook my soul when guard took that man to the washroom holding his hand.
And my reaction was Oh My God!!!!! Me & my friends looked each other and there was silence & only silence. As if we were asking to each other, what that couple is doing here? After sometime the couple hold each other hands and made move to the screen.
It was a mixed feeling I was sad to see that couple was blind, same time happy to see someone is enjoying their life irrespective of anything.
But that evening I learned A Big Lessons of Life. No matter what you have & what you don’t but you have a right to enjoy every moment of your life.
Keep our spirits alive. If we can laugh together in good time so do we can in bad times.
Togetherness itself is bigger reason for the celebration. I realized My Life’s Greatest Bliss is My Life Itself.
Thanks Almighty, my family my friends. Love You All. 🙂
