Pin It Now! I was tagged by Kavitha of and Gayu of,let me know if I missed anyone else. I would like to tag all my blogger friends with these set of questions.If you wish please answer these questions.I also received two awards from Santhosh and Suja.Please check my awards page for the update.

 Are you a vegetarian, or have you thought about being one?
 No I am not a vegetarian,I like some non veg foods like chicken and seafood.

 Who inspired you to cook or bake?
Cook-My Palate and of course my Mom.Bake - A good oven.

 How do you celebrate Christmas?...or a favorite holiday of your choice?
Being a Hindu,we have a lot of festivals in a year,so I have a lot of favs,I try to make it as festive as I  love,make some easy snacks and sweets.Christmas is another fav of mine,even as a child I would be fascinated by the stars hung outside the doors.I always have a christmas tree,put up ornaments,lights and bake some cookies.  

 If someone were to ask you to bring dessert to a party, what would you bring? Store bought, or homemade, and if you were to make homemade, what would you make?
Really depends on what kind of a party and what's on the menu.Store made or homemade depends on the day and my mood.I would bake a cake or some Indian sweet or even something as simple as a fruit custard/salad.

 Do you have a New Year's resolution-and will you be sticking to it?
Haven't really made any till now.Got to give it a thought.

 What is your take on organic food , is it a big deal for you ?
Well what they claim good today is not good another day.Its all about balance.There are too many contradictory reports.I do buy organic food but not entirely.One thing I do is always buy fresh.I buy from local farmers and stores that carry goods from local vendors.

 Do you time your breakfast,lunch & dinner or eat when you are hungry ?
In some cases ignorance is bliss but not in this case,I was ignorant and have skipped breakfast quite a bit,but nowadays no I know a lot better.

 How do you get new ideas for recipes?
I always like to experiment and that leads to new ideas for recipes.

 Name three things you have to use in most recipes ?
Nothing like I have to use,but I like to use tomatoes,spices,salt.

 How important is eating meals together as a family to you?
Very important.Good to have some quality time together.

You do not like a particular dish at your favorite restaurant, what will you do?

Not order it again.
