A Big question which is very frequently asked by many of my friends and colleagues :

Why Do I Blog??
I am in Gaming Industry and I works for 9-10 hours (or even more than that )in a day.Cooking is my passion.So despite of my busy schedules some how I try to manages time for cooking and my food blog.Time management is never the issue to pursue your passion.
I don’t earn a single penny from my Blog .I do blog because I love to and not for what it’s giving me back.But some people are always there to criticize you and It’s really very easy to judge someone,especially If you don’t Know much about them. I do not have any inclination to read what others write . One who criticizes others thinks negative only not beyond self.
I believe in quality more than quantity so I try to post whenever I gets time.I can’t post 5-6 recipes in a week unlike other bloggers.
I always try to post step by step photos for every single recipe so that it could be helpful for the beginner who have no idea what they’re doing in the kitchen.No matter day or night I always try to take picture for each an every recipes of mine.
I do blog for my own satisfaction and I am thankful that have learnt so many things in past 2.5 years because of blogging.Now I can not only able to create  mouthwatering dishes but also able play with the light and colours and take decent photograph for my blog.

Sugar can be replaced with honey to make the Iced-tea even more healthier.I am allergic to honey so I prefer to use sugar.
