Two weeks back , I visited Mahabaleshwar. Well for those who don't know about Mahabaleshwar, its a hill station in Maharashtra,  located in western ghats. It is a popular holiday and honeymoon spot. Splendid climate and many streams make this place special.  After 3hours of drive, we reached our destination and we were so happy to see our resort...Forestvalley Resort , as d name suggests this place gave us a true nature experience...we stayed in a wooden cottage and could hear d birds chirping always and the sight of little streams was awesome..From d resort we can have a walk to d nearby strawberry n mulberry farms..This place is famous for strawberries and honey. So how can I go without buying?? Did little shopping in market and  got few friends over there...This trip gifted us many breathtaking sights. Enjoyed every moment of it...

Peach Delight

Looking forward to this weekend because we are planning for a trip to Mahabaleshwar, land of strawberries... Hopefully I will bring a box of strawberries from there.. So expect a strawberry recipe next week :)

 When I got some fresh peach , first I didn't have any idea what to make.. Eating as such is not a bad idea... Because I like eating that way, but for M I had to think something different ..I put my thinking cap on and started preparing jam out of it...In the middle I was struck with a new idea and I named it as Peach Delight coz this made me smile:)

Really so soft, fluffy , so tasty and so delicious.... Best for your sweet cravings , I will say that...especially on a heavy rainy day ( like today) sipping a hot coffee and having a piece of Peach delight.. I can't ask for more...I love the aroma of cardamom and added a pinch of crushed cardamom in to that.. Heavenly aroma of cardamom filled in my kitchen... I am loving  this !!!!

This is a really simple recipe, but I am sure it will definitely awake your sweet buds:)
