Lately I have been very irregular with blog posts and even more with creating interesting recipes in my kitchen. There are lot of things keeping me occupied at personal front not to mention daily routine of managing two kids.
I have accepted the fact that I can not be highly active for some more time and I am happy with it. I will be posting as and when I get peaceful time to create, shoot and post recipes. Some may take it as low interest in blogging or social media, but I take it as maintaining work-life balance.
