4 ingredients Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

How fast time keep proceeding its phases. It's amazing and sometime distressing to know that the year which we had labeled as 'new' is now going to be 'old'. 2014 is officially have become our past - The past, which we had planned as our future a year back and planted too many seeds of dreams in our mind for those 365 days and now.. at the end, we are coming to know that how far we've accomplished our ambition and resolution in that year.

Looking back at the whole year, it was lucky, happy and even harsh and deplorable, but above all else, I learnt eminently in 2014 that lead me to be a better person at the end. The world out there has so much to offer and to learn from, blogging is one of them and I'm pretty proud of being the part of it. Meeting bloggers over communities and social medias, and connecting with them was an immense experience. I learnt so much from them in respect to writing, photographing and cooking/baking. To talk further and straight over this blogging year, my recipes (Best of a year can be seen in my Blogiversary Post) got featured on various websites and blog, traffic increased, photography and writing level rose and now I can say I WAS a bad writer and photographer in past. Today, I'm not good but at least better then before and I see this as improvement which is needless to say is the best thing happen in 2014. In this past year, my Instagram account crazed up with 1000+ followers which got featured on Dawn.com and Siddysays blog. I've collected good amount of baking essentials, photography items and cookbooks in this year that broke all the records of my 20 years history and looking at all of them I'm certain that my love for this blog and making it special one is rising enthusiastically. I wasn't that fond of these things before starting blog and now they seem to the part of my living. In a nutshell, this was the huge year of blogging and food which lead me to gain a good kg of weight and now I'm missing 2013-of-myself.

Pomegranate Dark Chocolate Bark with Black Salt

November was hack busy month, tied up with lots of life events and bunch of birthdays to go through. Being a lonely baker at home, I had to bake cakes for everyone's big days and even for myself this time. In all these bake-ness what I enjoyed the most was my attempt at fondant cake which I bake for my nephew's first birthday with Mercedes-Benz theme. But at end, the misfortune take place. Everything went silk and smooth, what actually happened was that the cake slightly slipped away during transportation and actually it was in my hand so it is not fine to blame or scream at others but to Rikshaw-wala who keep bouncing the ride ever now and then. Needless to say I was devastated and I'm still furious on that case not for the cake to slipped away but on me that I didn't take the final shot of cake to share with you. Too bad! and my sister has the video which she is not gonna give me that soon. I'm begging her everyday, every minute, but this working mom has no time to just send me a video. Hope someday she get a mini heart for me and send the video my way, Ameen!

Spicy Crispy Homemade Chicken Nuggets Recipe

I recently had the chance to give a chutney, pickle and condiments product called Chatkaar to try and write the review post for them. Chatkhaar is a product of Naurus (Pvt) Ltd. and has recently introduced new flavors among their already existing varieties, from which I was given two of them, which where my choice, Falsa Chutney and Chicken Pickle. They both tastes so fresh and, well, REAL. I loved the flavors and contrast and most of all the Packaging, royal gold and black theme with vintage logo. The look of the bottle and jar was different and unique in their own way.
