Quiet Book

Ever since I got pregnant, I wanted to do something for the baby. Like some people knit scarf/mittens, some people sew dresses. But I can’t do either of them so I settled for making headbands and something that is related to book. I wanted to create a story book but I can’t sketch to save the life of me. Great, now I feel like I’m not good at anything!! I came across this idea of quiet book and thought this looks cool so why not! You can find them easily on Amazon or any bookstore but the creative satisfaction that I get when I was making it or when I read this book to Sam is nothing compared to reading the mainstream books. I’m sure she will treasure it in future and I’m hoping it stays in one piece for her to treasure . Here’s how it looks, let me know how you like it!! 🙂

Ajwain Crackers

Postpartum cravings are real! I din’t crave much for anything except apple and watermelon during my pregnancy but I’m craving a lot these days. My dad used to but us these crackers and cream biscuits from a local bakery and these were our after school snacks. I din’t know what these crackers were called so I had to guess the ingredients and google the recipe and both google and my tastebuds din’t fail me. I found a recipe which seemed close and I tweaked it a bit.

DIY Headband


Ever since the gender reveal balloon burst out the ‘pink’ confetti, I have been a little cray cray about dressing up my baby girl. I kind of did a happy dance at a baby store and freaked the heck out of people there. Those tulle skirts, bloomers, headbands, moccasins… I know, right? That’s how giddy happy I feel too. I think I’m obsessed about baby headbands and I’m sure I’m not alone in this. At least my brother and FIL adore them on her as much as I do. As a crazy mom who’s *this* close to bankruptcy, went on Pinterest and browsed for ‘DIY Headbands’ and found this easy-peasy tutorial. Tutorial? LOL. Alright. This is how I made these cute headbands.

Peanut butter-Oatmeal Lactation Cookies


Don’t get me wrong, these cookies are not just for breast-feeding mothers, these are regular cookies anyone can consume. I read somewhere that oatmeal is good for lactation and the minute I uttered it out, my husband made a quick Costco run and got a huge box of oats. Apart from having it in the form of oh-so-boring pudding, pancakes I made these cookies which were delicious. I’m not sure if it boosted my supply but hey at least I got an excuse to eat cookies. Here’s how I make them.
