Yes it happened to me. Hubby was craving for some chicken roast and we bought this 2 Whole chicken. Marinated and put it in the oven. And later on we wondered why we put 2 whole chicken (we only ate half, and one n half was still there in oven). Pheeewwww and what to do with remainings now? Then i thought of making this chicken achaar (pickle). I have never made this, so i searched youtube and found yummy food world recipe for ''masu ko achaar''. I little modified it and made it.

Annouskha Touch Wood




Yesterday I attended the event at Annoushka Jewellery luxury brand for their gorgeous new Touch wood collection and  I must say all the range from collection was simply wow. The jewellery symbolise hope and protection which respond when we need some security in uncertain times. We have been touching wood for some luck all the time and it symbolizes the same thing. Annoushka has always belived that fortune plays a large part in our lives, and these pieces act as personal talisman.


Annoushka is a leading British jewellery brand by designer Annoushka Ducas which offers a stunning collection of handmade fine jewellery and designer jewellery for women - rings, earrings, necklaces and bracelets. The touch wood range is inspired from the traditional onion domes and distinctive spires of the wooden churches outside Moscow form the aesthetic inspiration for Touch Wood, beautifully recreated in ebony, diamonds and 18ct gold.



This one was my favourite. These tassel earrings are a playful pair from the range, reminiscent of Russian onion domes, they are crafted in exquisite 18-karat yellow gold and feature cascading golden chains alongside a sprinkling of diamonds. Finished with miniature hearts at the tip of each chain as well as discreet ebony detailing - a symbol of protection - these glamorous earrings are sure to become a treasured keepsake you will want to wear over and over again.

Pizza Express Pizza Making Party

So this week was a bit exciting for not only me, but for my kid also because we have attended pizza making party with Pizza Express. Yeah!!

Visiting pizza express is always a great idea and it's even better when you get a chance to roll the dough, add your favourite fresh ingredients, add some cheesy cheese and make your own choice of pizza. Recently I have visited newly revamped pizza express in Westfield, White City which had a magnificent makeover with a new stylish look. The revamped pizza express draws heavy inspiration from White City Stadium's illustrious history with the Olympic Games, has a exciting new colour scheme, smart new banquette and booth seating and a pendant lighting.


We were welcomed with a glass of prosecco and dough balls / kids with glass of apple juice. I meet lovely other bloggers and its always exciting to meet new people and share the experience together. After few sips we were invited on the floor by our teacher (i must say) Gosha and Daniel. We all have our own station of pizza making where we started rolling the dough (not an easy job though). They taught us all step by step process. It was really fun moment and hardwork too :)


Then next step was to add tomato paste and all the flavours of our choice. We have two pizzas. Lucky us. So we added all our favourite toppings. Olives, mushrooms, onions, bell peppers, chicken, spinach, jalapenos and loads of cheese. I cheated on aarush telling that green thing (spinach) is most important topping of pizza. If you don't put that topping, they will not give you pizza :) Sorry aarush mama have to lie sometimes ... for a good cause.


So here we are bunch of good people showing off our pizza.


Well overall it was really good experience, starting from the scratch, adding up your own toppings, learning all the basic knowledge about pizza making and improving your cooking skills. All thanks to our teacher Gosha and Daniel and of course Pizza Express for inviting us.



So, if you want to be the part of Pizza Express ' Pizza Making Party' then click below:

Its perfect for hangouts, corporate events, and of course birthday parties for adults and kids as well. Make sure you book one with them for your next event :)
