  It’s the same situation. Again! Every time I settle down, start liking the city, figure out my way through the place without Google maps and think, ‘I can get used to this’, the husband would tell me those words – ” we have to move”. So we are moving. Again. It will be our…

Cocoa Banana Mug Cake

  I am sure overripe bananas are an issue of national concern. I mean, if I was still in India I would have blamed Modi for it and returned the picture book I received in kindergarten for best handwriting.  But thankfully the situation is not as bad. There are mug cakes to the rescue. If…
