Fruit Cake

I'm finally back to home sweet home!! Missing my parents and all my family members badly:( I can't believe how fast these 2 months have gone by with all love,car,heat,sweat,spicy food and mangoes in India. Summer in India is killer I tell you,so now I would prefer to go in the winter.

I met many street food venders and shopkeepers who were fantastic and kind enough to help me and teach me so many good food tricks. I will share with you soon so don't forget to visit my blog! My dearest mom taught me and give me tones of homemade spices to use here. Oh the age of 76, she is so active and still makes such delicious food. I'm definitely missing my Ma and my wonderful father.

How awesome is it to have a family who loves me like crazy. I am so lucky to have world's best brothers who still love,care and treat me as a small baby! What else do you expect from family...just love love and love. Nothing else.

I'm sharing this yummy recipe with you all, so enjoy! Hope you all will share love and spread love amongst others too and be kind:) Until next time!
