Being your own boss is fun as well as scary. It’s fun because you get to work on your own terms. I feel blessed to have this opportunity where I can work in the comforts of my own home.

Cook With Manali turns 2! + Tutti Frutti Ice Cream Recipe

Today is 19th June 2015. 2 years back on the same date, I pressed the publish button on my blog for the very first time. At that time I had no idea what food blogging was all about.
