Summers always brings back memorable memories of school days when we used to wait desperately for our summer vacations!! I always used to accompany mom to buy green mangoes for making various sweet and spicy mango pickles. We used to make around 10kg's of mango pickle every year. Most of which we would share with our aunt's and uncle's families nevertheless it was fun to watch my ma and grandma making those yummy pickles. It was like a ritual which we used to follow every single year!

Strawberry Margarita (Non-Alcoholic)

Hi All,

Strawberries are the angels of the earth, innocent and sweet with green leafy wings reaching heavenward  -Terri Guillemets

Strawberry Margarita
Its been quite hot lately with temperatures roaring high it has become impossible to step out of house in the afternoons. The evenings on the other hand are lovely, the temperature drops down and is much more pleasant. From past couple of days the evenings have been extremely windy and standing in the balcony facing almost an empty ground does lift your spirits after a hectic day at work. Strawberries do have a natural way to make one feel refreshed, one look at those plump, juicy and vibrant berries and I am sold. What could be more refreshing on a summer's day than cool and sparkling strawberry margarita?

Who can say no to an Oreo Cookie? I am still yet to meet someone who dislikes Oreo's. These are very popular amongst kids as well as older generations. During my visit to US last year I understood the true craze of these cookies! Probably every trolly in the supermarket had big packs of Oreo's. Its packing also states "America's Favorite Cookie"! Oreo cookies are probably one of the oldest cookies available since 1920's. I have seen them being used in ice creams, milkshakes, cakes, puddings, fudges etc. I too enjoy these cookies especially with a cold glass of milk. Oreo's are so famous that it even has Oreo Cookie Day which is celebrated on March 6th.
