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).

As the most of us (India) gearing up for Diwali, let me do something unique – It’s our HALLOWEEN CELEBRATION.

Taking it to Fiesta Friday #194 hosted by Angie@thenovicegarderner.

Halloween is known as Allhalloween or All Hallows Eve or All Saints Eve, it is a yearly celebration observed in a number of countries on 31 October. It is an ancient festival celebrated by Celtic People over 2,000 years ago.

Straddling the line between fall and winter plenty and paucify, life and death, Halloween is a time of celebration and superstition.

Actually this day is marked as the end of the summer and the harvest and the beginning of the dark, cold winter, and they believed that the ghosts of the dead would come to the world on this (October 31) night and so people would light bonfire, dress up themselves as ghosts, left treats on the door steps, lit candles along the roads to help loved ones find their way back to the spirit world.

Above information collected from Wikipedia and few sites.

Just like that in our home, we loved to watch some horror movies and when kids came across this Halloween celebration through CARTOON Channels, they wanted to celebrate a home. So, we have trying out some crafts works for decoration and few foods for Halloween.
