Also i am tagged by Shoba of  Foodmazza. She has a wonderful blog with lovely recipes. The questions i need to answer are,

1. Are you a vegetarian or have you thought of being one?
No. I am non-vegetarian and sometimes thought of eating only veg. just to reduce my weight (i think like that, not sure whether it is true). 

2. Who inspired you to cook?
In my childhood days, my grandma and mom inspired to cook. But later on, my office colleague inspired me a lot as she prepare very different and tasty recipes. Then, after my marriage, while started searching on net for the recipes, all my fellow bloggers inspired me a lot. So i am now in to the cooking world.

3. How do you celebrate christmas or a favorite festival of your choice?
We dont celebrate christmas. We celebrate all the Hindu festivals.

4. Do you prefer to celebrate New Year's Eve with friends and/or family to ring in the New Year quietly and privately at home?
It actually depends on the situation. Sometimes, we go out with friends to see the fireworks on the New Year Eve, and the next day some friends/relatives come to our house or we go to their house.

5. If some one were to ask you to bring a dessert to a party, what would you bring? store-bought or home-made? If you were to make at home, what would you make?
When i am new to cooking, i usually get sweets from store. But now a days, i prepare at home. I try to do, different custard varieties, Rasmalai and icecream.

6. How will you celebrate your next birthday?
Mostly we go temple, have lunch at hotel and celebrate. Since i have small kids, i have left to their choice.

7. Do you have a New Year resolution and will you be sticking to it?
Now a days, i could not able to stick on to it stubbornly. So do not have any resolutions for this new year.
