Everyone I know of is looking for a good butter cake recipe and then a better than that and then better than that recipe, the quest goes on and on...I find a fabulous cake recipe and feel this is the best ever until I try out something else and that is better than that, well that's the human mind...deconstructed...
My mom used to take cooking classes when we were kids since she had considerable expertise in Kashmiri food and had learnt a lot of other stuff too, but when it came to baking cakes she felt I had a better hand at handling it, so I started teaching baking in particular, for those classes too, perhaps my first ever professional foray into the cooking world, I think that exposed me to a number of things particularly what students would ask and what answers I should be ready with, this I am talking about when I was maybe 15-16 yrs old, I think maybe I should have taken up a career in Hotel management or Culinary Art or something like that, but what the heck! maybe I can realise my dreams now through this blog...
In my last post I mentioned coming down with this Conjunctivitis, I mean this IS some monster from hell!, I absolutely hated it, it ate up last 10 days of my life and I am running a mile away from absolutely anyone who has it, but there are just some things you gotta endure in life, so my advice to anyone who has it-
- GOD help you
- Be patient
- Be prepared with lots of ice baths, add some rose water to it
- Go to the Dr immediately, he will start some painkillers and antibiotics for you
- Put those antibiotic eye drops every hour or so
- Keep calm
- Dont tear your eyes out like I wished I would
- PRAY HARD
