Yesterday I was mentioning about the rhyme hot cross bun and it did bring back memories of school...what a lovely time that was..there was no need to worry about anything..everything was taken care of and you feel so secure. The next phase is college where in you build new bonds, forge new relationships and cherish the good time for ever.And after 22 years today I met my friend..it was nostalgic...relived those days...nothing changes except that 22 years that have gone by....Thank you Jitu for stopping by....and on this note let me talk about today's recipe. Pizza, garlic, baking...these three words can spin magic in a kid's life...it definetely does to my kiddo. She loves the garlic flavoured warm pizza and this soft delicious bread is her favourite.
