Sonia has been communicating with me in the form of comments, and messages and posts on my Facebook page since the past six months at least. She posted this recipe on my Facebook page almost 4 months back. It's taken me this long to get her to say yes for posting this recipe on the blog, simply because Sonia responds to messages after a huge time gap. And by that time we've moved on to another topic. :-) So thank you Sonia for finally giving me the go-ahead for posting this recipe, for providing me with the pics, and for sharing your experience with me and other moms.

I keep saying that my husband, Kalpesh, is the driving force behind this blog. He was the one who convinced me to blog about my recipes. He provides the tech support, clicks the pics, and keeps nudging me to post when I go in my hibernation mode. Although, of late a lot of you moms are doing the nudging too and I can't thank you enough for that. If all you lovely ladies had not been providing me the guest recipes regularly, I think I would have barely posted one recipe a month.

Despite my promise in the last post that this month I'll post recipes frequently, I'm posting the next one after more than two weeks. I did say no more excuses, but please allow me to make some...it'll help me vent a bit :-p House getting painted from outside, Devansh becoming super clingy of late, conked off comp...there I feel much better now :p Now that I've got that out of my system, I'll proceed to the next guest post and this one is a first on my bloga guest post from a fellow blogger, Priya Sachan. Priya stays in Bangalore and has a three year old adorable daughter, Aanya.

Slumber, reverie, fatigue, or sheer laziness—I don't quite know how to describe my state in the past month. Maybe it was a combination of all these and more that resulted me in not posting anything for over a month. And it was not for lack of content. Thanks to the involvement and enthusiasm of all you lovely moms, I do have some guest recipes that I am yet to publish. I have one recipe from one of my besties, Aditi. She sent across a pic and dictated the recipe over the phone but I have been too lazy to type it out. Another dear friend, Sangeeta, made these yummy, refined-flour-free cupcakes for Devansh, which all of us devoured along with Devansh. She is going to send the recipe but I have been too caught up to follow through. Then there are three more moms who are going to send me the recipes soon. The recipe in this post is from Bhakti, which she typed and sent along with the pics. So I'll post this first. And this month I am not going to find excuses, I promise...I shall post the recipes at fairly regular intervals. ;-)

It's always difficult for me to choose pics for my guest recipe posts. When it comes to kids' pics, all of them come out well. It was the same for this post. I have seen many pics of Shilpi's kids as she uploads them on Facebook frequently, a habit I share with her I must add. :-) I have seen her daughter, Ryka's pics since she was born up until now where she's turned into a naughty toddler. Watching her pics has always been a visual treat, but I especially enjoy her recent ones where she's up to some mischief. However, for this post I wanted to use this family pic of Shlipi. I loved everyone's expression in this one; there's so much joy and contentment evident. Touch wood. :-)

Currently I am a full-time mom looking after my adorable little angel—well on most days my son is that :-). I was working as an instructional designer before Devansh was born. I decided to put my career on hold till he turns two at least. When I had to introduce solid food in his diet I collated a lot of baby food recipes. That’s when my husband, who’s an avid blogger for quite a few years, suggested I start a blog with these recipes. I thought why not, after all even this is like writing e-learning content, lots of procedural content with steps n all :-). But then the real challenge began—motivating yourself to write when there’s no client breathing down your neck with unrealistic deadlines. I had my excuses ready—I am too busy changing nappies, cooking, feeding… I don’t get enough sleep at night as Devansh wakes up several times during his sleep so how can I concentrate on writing etc etc. Now that Devansh is 20 months old I can no longer use some of these excuses. So FINALLY I have started writing these recipes. I have a few recipes that are written but are not photographed and some that are photographed but not written. I plan to post them real soon. Let’s see how it goes. :-)
