Posted in

The phone rang and I rushed to pick it up.
“Hello” said the caller.

“Hey Sheetal, how are you? How was the reunion ? “

“Amazing”

“Howz everyone?Radha,Sailu,Smita,Priya ,Sonali,Vijay,Rohan….?”I just spoke up as many names as I could remember from my batch in a breath.

Sheetal was among the few friends I was in touch with since I moved to US.She almost called me every week From India giving me all the updates she had from her so called”links”.
Sheetal had just returned from a reunion organized for my graduate class.

“Oh,everyone is doing great.

Eggless Lemon Yogurt cake

Every 3rd of the month I bake a cake for my toddler to celebrate his monthly birthday. I wanted to try the lemon-yogurt cake for long and when I googled I ended up with just this one foolproof recipe from Ina Garten's Barefoot Contessa At Home.As I was baking it eggless I skipped the 3 large eggs and did a few minor changes in the recipe.The end result was moist, yummy,soft and fluffy cake.You could add berries and nuts of your choice to the batter.As it was my first attempt to bake this cake I baked it just plain.
