Marble Cake with Easy cleaning tips (LAL HIT) for Christmas


Being a home maker, mother, and now a blogger, I expect perfection in all my work so that at least I can get my best. Moreover being a self-satisfied person I like to do all my work by myself. I love to have a environment clean and tidy, even having a maid, once in a month or before any special occasion, I use to clean my whole house by myself with the help of maid. Cleaning is not at all a tough job, but when it comes to kitchen I am very curious in cleaning, because of the crawling insects.

Product Review - LAL HIT

Product Review – LAL HIT

I would say that cleaning kitchen and bathrooms are not an easy task, so in this fast moving world where everyone are busy, again it’s not an easy task to clean the house very often. But we have to maintain the cleanliness every, now and then, as “HEALTHY HOME LEADS TO HEALTHY LIVING”.

But for last few years I am glad to have LAL HIT as part of my kitchen cleaning. It has reduced by efforts in cleaning process. It comes with a Deep Reach Nozzle, which can be used in kitchen sinks, near cylinders, every nook and corner (behind the door, windows…). I use this into kitchen once in a month. Now it’s this LAL HIT – the crawling insect killer, which helps me leave fruits, vegetables (covered with a net basket) in my kitchen shelf, vegetables in kitchen cupboard to stay safe away from the cockroaches.  #SayNoToFoodPoisoning



As of Christmas and New Year, everyone would be cleaning your house in full swing and I would recommend using LAL HIT not just during Christmas cleaning but during each month’s kitchen cleaning to get rid of cockroaches and stay away from the diseases like Food Poisoning, Typhoid, Cholera and Diarrhea… Now let me share an easy EGGLESS Tutty Frutty Sponge cake with the both the vanilla and chocolate flavor in it (MARBLE CAKE).

Christmas Cake Mixing at Park Plaza, Bangalore.


Last Sunday, got an invite to Park Plaza, Bangalore for their Cake Mixing Event. The event was very great, usually I like this cake mixing event, it was Park Plaza were I had my first cake mixing event last year. Once when the event has started, I felt gearing up for Christmas, and the freshness of the dry fruits, nuts, and the alcohols, all together totally was a great experience. Last year it was candies hidden and this time it was coin hidden in the mixture.

Everyone was very happy with their gloves, aprons, hats and joined the event. Mixing was done until the dry fruit and nuts were well coated with alcohol. After mixing they have packed up the nuts and this would be the key ingredient for the Christmas Cake.

Spicy Chicken Sausage


When I saw some food pics with sausage, I too wanted to try it. But I never had or cooked sausage in my life, this wanted me to try as early as possible. When I went to super market I purchased Chicken Sausage and prepared this Chicken Sausage along with Bread Omelete for our Christmas Breakfast.

Spicy Chicken Sausage was delicious, little spicy, soft with awesome flavor. I prepared it in Indian style and accompanied with Bread omelete. My kids loved it, especially my daughter she loved it to the core and she wanted it very often. Let us move on to the recipe…
