Melting moments

When I first tasted Strawberry in Mangalore I had lot of expectations from the fruit. The first bite and I was disappointed. I was wondering why people pay such heavy price to this friut which was only tangy with no hint of sweetness. After that, I never bought it until I came here. It was strawberry season then but after the first experience I was not prepared to give it a try though I loved strawberry flavoured drinks and icecreams. It was that time when I was blog hopping I came to this wonderful blog. The name of the blog promised a variety of desserts. I zeroed on strawberry icecream but unfortunately the strawberries were not available then. I bookmarked this recipe and waited for a year to try this with fresh strawberries. I could never believe that I could get creamy and good results without an Icecream maker. I made a very small batch and it got over in no time. Thank you JZ for the wonderful recipe. Now not having an ice cream maker is not a reason to refrain from making icecreams at home. Please hop on to JZ's blog for more treats.
Sending this Pinky treat over to Priya who is guest hosting FIC Event for Sunshinemom and has selected her colour for the month as Pink
I have reduced my frequency of blogging since quite some time. We have just shifted to a new house and am still in the process of getting adjusted to the new house. Here are few photos of our new home.

I was blog hopping today and was thinking that I had not seen your post for a while. I was about to say "khai asaa tuvva"?

OK now I know you are moving houses.
I saw the pictures of your new house and it is amazing. It overlooks the city isn't it? I could sitin the balcony for hours and enjoy the view. Have a great time Uj. Loved your pic also.
