Macroni, Spaghetti, Pasta are becoming a household dish in India and people are more inclined to the taste of cheese and I have tried to keep in pace with changing scenario. Though my home hasn’t much biased to the taste of cheese except my little one likes to have Pizza. R likes to stay comfortable in his South Indian zone, so I don’t have much options to go beyond the boundaries, but I make it a point to take an extra step to explore. Its all about being broad in thoughts for progressive move.
Baking was not in my wordbook until a friend of mine started her journey in baking and there I got the thrust from her to start the basics of baking. I did some reconnoitre 😀 about the do’s and dont’s.
Voila !!! I understood the knack of baking, yet miles to go. In fact I have fallen in love with baking and trying to find an opportunity to bake. I am looking forward to bake cupcakes for a Children’s day fellowship in our parish. Fingers crossed. Praying for the smooth cruise 🙂
To begin the baking category in my site, I chose the easiest recipe for the start. Macroni Cheese or Macroni and Cheese.
