Stuffed Roasted Bell Peppers Recipe

Roasted Stuffed Capsicum: These days you can’t just serve dal/lentils and some simple curry to your family let alone guests. Looks matter…a lot!! We run out of options thinking of the lunch or dinner menu. It has to have both nutrition and aesthetic value :D. I tried plating the dish in different styles and used a variety of condiments. But that wasn’t enough. Some creativity and twist were needed.

Here I have come up with this recipe; that is a great treat to eyes and tastes equally great. Your family and friends will thank you for this. You can serve this as a side dish or a main dish with roti/naan/flatbread and curd. The capsicums/bell peppers can either be baked or cooked in a pan. Both ways it tastes great but cooking in a pan requires little more effort than baking in the oven.

Easy Baking Tips 1

Baking Tips for Beginners: I used to wonder what goes wrong with my cake? It always was a disaster- be it a badly cracked cake, a dry cake, heavy cake, collapsed cake etc. But this didn’t stop me from baking. I kept trying and voila! Now my cake turns out to be just perfect. I am compiling a list of mistakes that you can avoid- these Easy Baking Tips will really help you!

#1 Measurement:

Measure all the ingredients accurately. Buy a set of measuring spoons and cups. ( It costs not more than Rs150)

#2 Right balance:

The number of ingredients, the temperature is given, the size of the tin or mold and the baking time are all co-related. Do not change any of these. Strictly follow the recipe. Do not substitute any ingredient without knowing the science.

Easy Baking Tips 5

#3 Sift the flour:

We might think that it is a waste of time to sift properly packed/ fresh flour. But this step ensures that the cake will be free of any dry lumps and have an even rise.

#4 Good quality ingredients:

Always use fresh ingredients. Check the expiry dates of baking powder and baking soda before making the cake. Keep replacing them every 6-7 months.

#5 Separate bowls:

Two separate bowls to be taken for dry and wet ingredients. First, beat wet ingredients (butter and sugar) thoroughly in a bowl with a blender or manually and then add the sifted dry ingredients.

Easy Baking Tips

#6 Using cold ingredients:

All the ingredients (butter, milk, cream etc)  have to be at room temperature unless specified in the recipe. Don’t warm the butter in the microwave as this will melt it and the cake will not be fluffy and soft.

#7 Keeping the ready batter on hold:

After mixing dry and wet ingredients, the batter should not be held for long. If there are no lumps, pour the batter immediately to the baking dish. Otherwise, the result would be a flat cake.

#8 Baking powder and baking soda:

Although they may look similar, one cannot be substituted for the other. Also, you cannot skip any of them. Both have to be added in right measure as mentioned in the recipe.

# 9 Overmixing:

It may result in a sunken cake as too much air gets trapped in overbeating. Once you have mixed all the wet ingredients, gently fold the dry ingredients into it

#10 Undermixing:

In an attempt to avoid overmixing, sometimes we leave the batter undermixed. To strike a balance, beat till the flour is completely absorbed.

Easy Baking Tips 2

Easy Baking Tips 3

#11 Pre-Heating:

This is the most important point. Even if you have a great recipe, you may fail at this point. Put the oven on pre-heating once all the ingredients are ready. PLEASE note that the baking dish is not to be pre-heated.

#12 Grease the tin:

Prepare your baking dish by greasing it with few drops of oil. Spread it evenly and sprinkle some flour. This will ensure that the cake won’t stick to the tin and it comes out clean.

#13 Tap the pan:

Before putting the pan into the oven, gently tap the pan. This will not only smooth the surface of the cake but also remove any air bubbles trapped inside the batter.

#14 Opening the oven door:

To check if the cake is ready, first see if the cake has shrunken from the sides or has left the sides. Then only insert a knife in the highest part of the cake. If the knife comes out clean, the cake is done. DO NOT open the oven door too many times.

Easy Baking Tips 1

#15 Cool completely:

Let the cake cool down properly before you cut in. Do not refrigerate it to quicken.

Keep these points in mind while baking and you’ll avoid some major failures. Hope this would help. Please share your views in the comment section below.

Ogx Moroccan Argan Oil Penetrating Serum 4

Ogx Moroccan Argan Oil Penetrating Serum: There’s a very interesting story about how I got this product. Actually, I didn’t buy it, my husband did: look amazed?? Yes, it’s true. Well, I am poor at hair styling (working on it :p) .So I mostly keep my hair open or nicely tie them in a ponytail. My husband used to say that your looks lifeless and dry whenever I washed my hair. I have an oily scalp, so applying oil was not an option. Also, I am not very supportive of hair serums or leave on conditioners because of the chemicals in them. I was clueless about what should I do.Then one day while on random online shopping spree, my husband ordered this. I read about the description and wanted to give it a try.Here  I am sharing my experience with this Ogx Moroccan Argan Oil Penetrating Serum 🙂

Ogx Moroccan Argan Oil Penetrating Serum 4

What is it and who is it for?

A unique, precious blend with Argan oil of Morocco instantly helps to penetrate the hair shaft restoring shine and softness while strengthening. Discover soft, seductive, silky perfection.It is suitable for all hair types.


Rs 725 for 100 ml

This exotic precious blend of Argan oil of Morocco penetrates, moisturizes, renews and creates softness and strength while protecting your hair from harmful styling heat and UV damage as it gives you smooth, sexy tresses.

Ogx Moroccan Argan Oil Penetrating Serum 1

My Experience with Ogx Moroccan Argan Oil Penetrating Serum:

It comes in a very handy transparent packaging.I love its flip open cap. Really convenient.The only down side maybe the fact that it might leak…so not travel-friendly.

Ogx Moroccan Argan Oil Penetrating Serum 3

  The texture of this oil is neither very watery nor very thick; actually, it’s just like other serums. I have fine hair that is oily at the scalp and dry towards the tips.I put 2-3 drops on my palm and apply on the surface of damp hair from mid length to the ends. It nourishes my hair, controls frizz and leaves it smooth and silky. It doesn’t make my hair greasy (as with other oils) while conditioning my strands well. My hair condition has noticeably improved. I am in love with this product.

he Body Shop White Musk Smoky Rose Body Wash Review 4

What is it and who is it for? The Body Shop White Musk Smoky Rose Body Wash is a soap-free shower gel fragranced with White Musk Smoky Rose. It is suitable for both men and women.

 he Body Shop White Musk Smoky Rose Body Wash Review 2


Rs 795 for 250 ml

How to Use:

Pour the desired amount on a loofah, lather well and enjoy!! 🙂

My Experience with the Body Shop White Musk Smoky Rose Body Wash:

This comes in a very lovely mauve colored plastic bottle. The press-down cap makes it travel-friendly. It has a gel-like consistency and is colorless with a slight tint of purple. Even a small amount is sufficient to give you a very subtle musk fragrance. All the beauties out there who don’t like the regular fruity or girly scents, I would say; this will give you a whole new experience.

Indulge yourself into a sensual lather-rich luxurious shower gel that has a silky- smooth texture and a velvety scent. You feel fresh and revived. The fragrance is not very bold to give you a headache and not light either. I like it how the fragrance lasts for a few hours. You need to apply a body lotion thereafter as it doesn’t moisturize the skin. My husband also uses this likes it very much. Well, it doesn’t have any skin enhancing features but this product surely decks up in your collection for those not-so very-good days. 🙂

  1. Soap-free
  2. Lather-rich
  3. Very sensual fragrance
  4. Travel-friendly
  1. A little pricey ( but worth it if you like the fragrance)
  2. Not for those who like the fruity-mild fragrance
  3. Does not moisturize
  4. Hard to squeeze out
  5. Fragrance must be layered to make it long-lasting
Would I repurchase and recommend?

I will definitely buy this product the moment I get over with the one I have. But, that’s just because I am o in love with the fragrance. This is one of the very few shower gels that I always have in my bath kit. You too, buy it only for its scent…otherwise skip it 🙂

The Body Shop Rainforest Volume Shampoo Review 1

Who is this for? The Body Shop Rainforest Volume Shampoo is for those looking for a cruelty-free volumizing shampoo.The Body Shop Rainforest Volume Shampoo Review 1


Rs 795 for 250 ml

How to Use:

Mix with a little water in the hands to create lather. Massage into scalp and rinse thoroughly.

My Experience with The Body Shop Rainforest Volume Shampoo:

My hair used to be thick and luscious. But with the course of time, they lost their volume and shine L. My mom blamed it on the shampoos that I use. She says you are ruining your hair with all these chemical laden products. I actually stopped using any shampoo for a while and switched to homemade hair cleansers (amla shikakai/ curd…). But owing to my oily scalp, I had to wash my hair every other day. And the homemade thing was not at all convenient. Though, it worked great.

Then somebody suggested me to try TBS shampoo. It’s completely sulfates and parabens free. My mom didn’t waste a minute and got one for me. I have tried few other products from The Body Shop (already reviewed Smoky Rose Body Wash) and loved it. So, I was also very hopeful about it.

It comes in a brown colored plastic bottle with a flip cap. It has water- like consistency and is transparent. As per the directions are given, I poured a small amount on the hands, mix with water to form a lather. But it all fell from the hand (because the shampoo itself is very runny). Then I used a mug to mix. It didn’t lather as desired. After washing, I could still feel the oil in my scalp. So I had to wash again.

The Body Shop Rainforest Volume Shampoo Review

I don’t know why the brand claims about the volume. It is exactly the opposite. Hair feels damp and heavy. Even after excessive washing and rinsing, the oil doesn’t come out. I don’t use dryers or other styling products; even then it made my hair dry and frizzy. My hair looked the worst after drying. The only thing I like about this shampoo is its amazing fragrance.

Nonetheless, The Body Shop Rainforest Volume shampoo can be an ideal gift for those who want to experiment and spoil their hair   😛

  1. Free of Sulphates, Parabens, and colorants
  2. Nice fragrance
  3. Travel-friendly
  1. Does not lather
  2. Makes hair dry and frizzy
  3. Doesn’t add volume at all, as the brand claims
  4. Doesn’t remove oil from the scalp
  5. Expensive
Would I repurchase and recommend?

This product is a big disappointment. I used it twice and the bottle is untouched after that. I have kept it aside for my pedicures and manicures.

Don’t go for it simply because it’s natural (the reason I picked it up), it is not worth the money.

MAC Gently Off Eye and Lip Makeup Remover

MAC Gently Off Eye and Lip Makeup Remover: Eye-makeup is an art and glossypolish has many great articles on it, assisting beginners for eye makeup and the best products for it 🙂

So I also tried my hands on it. It is fun to experiment. Isn’t it? After all the fun part, there comes the other tedious task- u know what I am talking about… removing eye-makeup. I remember how horrible I looked when I directly splashed water on my face. Mascara melting this way, liner going the other way. 😛

 And guess what..? I got ‘MAC Gently Off Eye and Lip Makeup Remover’ as my birthday present this yearJ. I am more than happy to write this review.

What is it and who is it for?

A gentle dual-phase formula that removes all makeup including waterproof products.


21$ for 100ml

MAC Gently Off Eye and Lip Makeup Remover Review 1

How to Use:

Shake bottle To combine ingredients, then saturate the cotton pad with the product. Gently wipe over eyes and/or lips to remove makeup.

My Experience with MAC Gently Off Eye and Lip Makeup Remover:

This comes in a beautiful pink-colored plastic bottle with a child-lock cap. Yes, you heard it right!! A child lock cap. You have to press and screw open it. Earlier I could not understand the logic behind it but then I realized that because it is colorless and crystal-clear, a child can confuse it with water. Really thoughtful that is. 🙂

 Anyways coming to the product- it is an amazing blend of water and oil. You can see the two separately if the bottle stands still. So shake well before use.
MAC Gently Off Eye and Lip Makeup Remover Review 4

I first tried it after my cousin’s wedding with a whole load of makeup on. I had it in my purse with a few cotton pads. No leakage at all. So, 1 extra point for that. I pour a considerable amount on the cotton and let it sit on the eye for 10 seconds. Just a single swipe and voila!! 🙂  The eyeliner, mascara, eyeshadow came out easily without irritating the skin at all. You may feel a little oily initially, but give it a minute and it will be absorbed. So, need to rinse also.

MAC Gently Off Eye and Lip Makeup Remover Review 5

To be very honest, I am not asking you to buy it despite its amazing results.  Because I think there are other economical options. Like, I once used Johnson’s Baby Oil and it worked great as well, though not that meticulously.

  1. Removes makeup completely
  2. Does not stings or irritates the skin
  3. A bliss for sensitive skin beauties
  4. No need to rinse
  5. Travel friendly
  6. A great brand
  7. Dermatologist tested
  8. Ophthalmologist tested
  9. Child-lock cap
  1. Price is an issue.
  2. Some may find opening the cap a bit tedious.
Would I repurchase and recommend?

Overall, it’s an amazing product fulfilling all its claims. But what stops me from buying it again is the price. Once I am done with this bottle, I will look for cheaper alternatives. If the price is not an issue and you are on a hunt for a great makeup remover, just go for it.

Palmolive thermal spa skin renewal body wash review 2

What is it and who is it for? Palmolive Thermal Spa Skin Renewal Body Wash is a shower gel with gentle scrubbing formula.

Palmolive thermal spa skin renewal body wash review 2


Rs 145 for 250 ml

How to Use:

It can be used with a loofah or by hand. Pour a little Palmolive Thermal Spa Shower gel on your wet loofah. Apply gently over your wet skin. For best results, use loofah to work up rich, fragrant lather before rinsing off.

My Experience with Palmolive Thermal SPA Skin Renewal Body Wash:

This comes in a standard Palmolive Shower gel packaging- cute and handy plastic bottle with flip-open cap. Normally, the shower gels are pink, blue, transparent etc. This was different- a creamy white. That was one of the reason I wanted to give it a try. And it was light on my pocket too.:)

I had very hopes from this considering what the brand claims- A SPA experience.

When I flipped open it and pressed it, the shower gel took like forever to come out. Just like waiting for the last bits of ketchup from the bottle. No doubt that they have mentioned the texture is creamy but then the packaging could have been different.

The fragrance is sweet and fruity like coconut milk. The micro-granules of crushed coconut are so mild that you can use it without worrying about your skin getting any irritation. On the other-side, if you want some actual exfoliation, then this might disappoint you.

Palmolive thermal spa skin renewal body wash review 4

It neither dries out the skin nor does it moisturizes. Like I have a dry skin and it still feels dry after using this. Oily-skinned beauties might like the product.

Well, one aspect thing this shower gel misses on is it doesn’t actually refreshes you. And that’s what we all look forward to while going for a shower. So you can give it try if want to try something different but there’s nothing wow about it.

  1. Very mild scrub for sensitive skin
  2. Economical buy
  3. Pleasant fragrance
  4. Doesn’t dries the skin
  1. Very thick consistency; really have to press several times before it comes out.
  2. Not refreshing
  3. Very mild exfoliation
  4. Very Average in every respect
Would I repurchase and recommend?

I don’t think so I will but it again. I picked it just for a trial and it didn’t meet my expectations.

Vitamin E Capsules for Skin: Are you one of those people who are scared of the idea of gulping down a tablet? Well, I am. Whenever my dermatologist gives me a list of medicines (basically for beautiful skin), I think twice. The market is loaded with tablets for multivitamins, antioxidants and what not. But I always prefer going the natural and the safest way. Our body gets used to this external source for vitamins and minerals which can be an issue at later stages. A few months back I bought a strip of Vitamin E capsules (because my skin and hair were becoming very dry). But I ended up just taking one capsule and dumping the rest.

Just a week ago, I found these capsules lying in my stationary box (thanks to my nephew.. :-P). Then I got this crazy idea what if I pop open it and apply directly. Then I searched it online and yes… everybody was doing it.  Since then I have been working on creative ways to use it.

After using it for a while now, I realized THESE ARE ALSO SUPER CONVENIENT. All you need is a pack of capsules and use it where and when required.

 I am listing down some of the best and the easiest ways to use it:

Face Serum:

Using a clean sterilized needle pop the capsule and squeeze out the oil. Dab 2-3 drops on the face and neck and massage for 30 seconds. Since it is in concentrated form, don’t take too much quantity. You can use it during the day as well as night. I sometimes use it as a primer (in very small quantity) during wedding season, when you have to apply makeup every day and your skin badly needs some extra care.

Add it your night cream:

Extract oil from 2-3 capsules, depending on the quantity of your cream, and mix it with your regular night cream to have the added benefits of Vitamin-E. This saves you from daily chore of opening a capsule.


Image credit :hey-gorgeous

Hair Serum:

Apply it on your hair length just the way you would apply any other hair serum. Vitamin-E nourishes the hair tames frizzy and dry strands.

For cuticles and chapped lips:

Got dry and chapped lips? Not anymore. Vitamin-E not only repairs them but also helps in de-pigmentation. With regular use, your lips will be super soft and pink. Because of its thick consistency, you will need half of the capsule for lips. Massage the rest on the cuticles to nourish them.

Treat sunburns:

Use it after a day out in sun. It will help replenish moisture and provide soothing relief from sunburns. You can keep the capsules in the refrigerator for cooling effects :)(It feels heavenly).

Fades scars:

 Apply directly on your scar. Just have patience and the scars will soon fade away.:)

Foot cream:

Mix the oil with equal quantity of Vaseline petroleum jelly and apply on cracked and dry feet. This is a great combination to get relief from cracked heels.

Oral Medication:

Last but not the least; take one per day for fifteen days. You will be amazed to see its wonders on skin and hair (Make sure you take only from trusted brands).

With so many benefits of Vitamin E capsules, don’t you think you should get these soon and add it to your daily skin care regime?

Forest Essentials Intensive Eye Cream with Anise Review

What is it and who is it for? Forest Essentials Intensive Eye Cream with Anise is an eye cream that tones and firms the eye area.
Forest Essentials Intensive Eye Cream with Anise Review


Rs 2200 for 15g

How to Use:

Use a wooden spoon to take out the cream. Dab a few dots around the eye. Massage in a clockwise direction with your ring finger.

Forest Essentials Intensive Eye Cream with Anise Review 3

My Experience with Forest Essentials Intensive Eye Cream with Anise:

My eyes were in a very bad position when I bought this cream. A desperate buy actually. They were dry, tired and puffed. I bought it for a friend’s recommendation.( Thanks Sone 🙂 )

This is the first product I got to try from FE. As the tagline of the brand- Luxurious Ayurveda, it truly is; both in terms of price and packaging. 😛 This comes in a glass pot securely packed in a cardboard box. The pot has an extra cap on it to avoid any spillage. The texture of the cream is water-like. Just a few dots (3-4) are sufficient for both the eyes.

The first day I applied it, I got a burning sensation around my eyes. I waited for a minute and the sensation faded away. I walked to the store the very next day to get the product changed. But the sales lady assured me that there’s nothing to worry because my eyes were very dry and suggested me to continue using it.

Forest Essentials Intensive Eye Cream with Anise Review 4

So I started applying it two times a day- Morning and at night. For the first 2 days I experienced the same burning sensation, but after that the results were amazing.

 I could see how moisturized and nourished my eyes look. Just a few seconds massage and the cream would be absorbed. Since then I have been regularly using it. The quantity I apply now has also reduced. Dark circles have also reduced but not gone completely yet. (I started using it a month back only) Also, I cannot see any difference in my fine lines. But patience is the key. I am still left with half the quantity.

  1. Authentic Ayurvedic formulation
  2. Very nourishing
  3. Visibly reduces dark circles
  4. Made in INDIA 🙂
  • Bit Expensive, but if the quantity lasts for few months then why not!!!
  • Tub form is prone to breakage.
Would I repurchase and recommend?

The eye area is the most delicate area of the face. So I would suggest going natural on this. I am very happy with this product and am definitely going to buy it again the moment I get over with this one.

DIY Oatmeal Honey Pack

Best Beauty Pack ! !

by Roohi Gupta

Beauty Pack: This super awesome pack is for all the beautiful girls out there who are busy doing work all day but can’t find time for themselves, to pamper themselves.  We have problems; we also know the solution to it. But who has the time? My mother comes up with a new “dadi maa every day nuskhe” everyday. No doubt they are very good but not convenient. :)In my search of something that could be a solution to all, came across this super awesome All-in-one pack. Read further to know why I call it ‘one solution to all problems’ pack.

DIY Oatmeal Honey Pack

Who can use this Honey and Oat All-in-one pack?

Well, as the name suggests this pack can be used by anyone and anywhere. Use it as a hair mask, Face Scrub, Face pack or Body scrub. Due to its gentle nature, it can be used on ‘SENSITIVE SKIN’ also.

Benefits of this Honey and Oat All- in- one Pack :

Oatmeal is one of the most used ingredients in natural skin care regime. It is full of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds. It gently exfoliates the skin leaving it moisturized, soothed, hydrated and silky smooth. IT is clinically proven to treat skin itchiness and minor rashes.The second ingredient, honey, lightens skin and decreases the appearance of scars. It’s not only hydrating but helps in cell regeneration. The third ingredient curd soothes the skin and works great on sun-tanned skins. I have already written an article on tomato and curd pack here

How to make this Honey and Oat All-in-one Pack :
  • 1 tbsp Oatmeal powder
  • 2 tbsp curd ( can vary)
  • 1 tbsp honey

Grind oatmeal in a mixer to powder. (You can grind some extra oatmeal and keep it for future use)

DIY Oatmeal Honey Pack 3
Add Curd and honey to this powder.

Mix well to form a smooth paste. You can vary the quantity of curd as per your choice. Some like it a bit on the watery side. I like it in the paste form. If using it on the hair you can add more curd.

Your all-in-one pack and scrub is ready.

It is a must-do pack if you haven’t oiled your hair in recent past.If using it on face or body, gently scrub the mask before taking it off. If the pack becomes very dry, add few drops of water while scrubbing. Your skin will thank you for this at-home body spa. It will be clean, hydrated, and amazingly smooth.
