When weather around is so crazy and chilly, baking is a kind of relief to uplift our mood and also for keeping our kitchen warm and thats what exactly I have been doing these days.The weather is unbelievable here, its officially spring but its freezing outside and snowing on and off too, my heaters are struggling to keep my home warm ! So till the weather gets better we are catching up with our friends which involves lot of cooking and also past few days I have been volunteering in my lil one nursery which is kind of keeping me busy and tired by the end of the day , so I dont find enough time to complain about the horrible weather :)
