I am tagged :-)

 Tried and tasted by Nivedita 
 Hi All,
Its nice to be tagged. I am thankful to Preethi of Preethi's Culinary for Tagging me and giving me a chance to think few things about me and answer the questions which really made me to think before I answer those.

Here are the questions and my answers:

1. Are you a vegetarian, or have you thought about being one?
I am an Omnivores :-) :-), I love to have non veg but once in a while. My favorite food is Vegetarian and raw food makes me more hungry.

2. Who inspired you to cook or bake?
During childhood, cooking was my necessity. Now, there are many people who really inspires me to try cooking new food. My daughter, my blogging friends, great chefs from all over the world are few among them.

3. How do you celebrate Christmas?...or a favorite holiday of your choice?
I would love to celebrate a festival with my family and still waiting for my all alone favorite holiday..

4. Do you prefer to celebrate New Year's Eve with friends and/or family, or prefer to ring in the New Year quietly, and privately, at home?

I love to celebrate New Year's Eve with friends or family, basically, I can not stay alone at home on that evening. I feel lost and I feel lonely if I am alone that eve.

5. If someone were to ask you to bring dessert to a party, what would you bring? Store bought, or homemade, and if you were to make homemade, what would you make?
I would love to make home made dessert and that will be a cake(new passion). Otherwise, gulab jamoon are the best.

6. How will you celebrate your next birthday?
I really do not know and don't want to plan it now only.

7. Do you have a New Year's resolution-and will you be sticking to it?
I do not believe in New Year's resolution. I make resolutions according to my necessity and If I do, I stick to it.

8. Do you time your breakfast,lunch & dinner or eat when you are hungry ?
I maintain regular time for breakfast and dinner. Lunch time varies.

9. What inspired you to write a food blog ?
Ohh, there are many reasons which inspired me to write a food blog. First was, I wanted to prove myself as a good writer and a good cook. Second is, I love to meet or make new friends of my interest. Third is, it really makes me happy.

10. You try a new recipe and it does not turn out good,what will you do ?
I immediately try it in a week or two. If I get success, it will be in my regular menu or if its a disaster, I will try it again after a month or two. But I try till I get that recipe right.

11. Name three ingredients you consciously avoid or eliminate even when the recipe calls for it ?
Ajinomoto, more oil and more masala

12. Name three things you have to use in most recipes ?

Salt, ginger and vegetables :-)

13. How important is eating meals together as a family to you?
 I really enjoy having food with my family and its very very important for me to have meals together.

I have answered very honestly and enjoyed doing the same.
