Travel | Horsleys Hill - When destination does not matter

Endless playing time, uninterrupted sleep and travel plans....the word vacation brings with it the joy of indulging in activities we all love.
First day of holiday for my children begins after the end of mid-term exam and we were deciding on a small weekend getaway near Chennai. And the next thing I knew, we were already on our way to Horsleys Hill. 
With no particular destination in mind and no prior bookings required, these weekend getaways are a perfect way to rewind. I love these quick weekend trips for the sheer joy of traveling with my family, when destination does not matter to us and we travel just to be together for some time.

Yelagiri - Travel gives you a story to tell, the story of Bhairava the dog

Think of a quick weekend getaway from Chennai and the first hilly place that strikes immediately is Yelagiri.
We love such short and sweet weekend trips by road. These trips are a great way to rewind, spent some quality family time together and just do nothing but relax with nature.

The best part of our trips is that both are children co-operate and are well accustomed to our frenzy way of travelling They get up as early as 3.30 am, take bath and make themselves ready for the trips.

Recipe | Quick and easy yogurt eggless cake

This eggless cake recipe is quite easy to bake and can be adapted well to cook a steamed version of cake.
I use the same batter to fill small aluminium moulds and steam them in a pressure cooker (without vent) for about 20-25 minutes.

Recipe | Easy Eggless Custard Cake

Custard powder used in the recipe gives a light texture to this egg less cake.The idea of using custard powder in baking a cake came from Aparna's blog.
You can replace the custard powder with cornflour.
