Vanilla Mug Cake – Happy Father’s Day

He is brave, he is funny 

yet wise 

In his simplicity 

His honesty lies 

He is inspiring, he is humble

Corrects you when you fumble 

He guides you always

wants you to rise 

He acts all cool 

But carefully spies 

Spies to keep you on the right way

He may get troubled to keep you happy

But he wouldn’t ever say

Wants you to be smart and selfless 

He is the one 

Who takes you out of the mess 😉

He is a friend he is a guide 

It’s on his strong shoulders 

You would have had the best horse ride 😉

He considers responsibilities before his will 

His duties before his dreams 

He will not let go of his smile

No matter how tired he seems 

He is courageous but watchful 

Watchful so that you learn

Wisdom is what 

He wants you to earn 

He treats his daughter like a princess 

His son like a star 

He holds the family together 

And doesn’t let go anyone far

He is one- of -a-kind

Depth of his love is not easy to find 

He is our hero our Dad

Who truly rules our heart and mind 🙂

How’s it going foodies? We know the heat the killing but we never give up food :). That’s why we are “Missfoodies”. Our today’s blog is specially for the lovely fathers out there!! As I had mentioned in my last blog our latest addition (Parul’s daughter- our little Miss foodie) to the missfoodies family is turning 9 months and it’s her 1st Father’s Day! Wow!! That calls for a celebration, what say peeps!! It surely does. The relation between daughters and fathers is truly special and only daughters can make it out of this world. :). So you guessed it right. To make this day special we have a super easy cake recipe which even fathers can make for their kids and vice versa. :). But we don’t even want our fathers to be binge eating and get into that indulgence!! Well to satisfy their sweet tooth but to keep the portion size in check, we made this yummy and easy Vanilla Mug Cake! This little cake is moist, delicious and just perfect to satisfy those sweet jitters!!

You can top it up with just anything that you feel like. Be it gems, chocolate shavings, icing. It can be really creative and according to your wish! So go ahead scratch your brain make that best cake. All is takes it is just 90 seconds in the microwave and you will have a little mug o’ heaven :). One of the most important tips I can offer if you’re going to make this cake is to make sure that your mug is at least 14 ounces or it may “bubble” over while baking in the microwave. Watch that mug closely!! If you use a big enough mug there’s nothing to worry about. Our cake took up about 3/4 of the cup, which was perfect. So try on this easy peasy and the quickest cake recipe we have ever tried. And trust me it just comes out perfect. We couldn’t believe ourselves until we took the first bite! It was marvellous!

We did not add the icing because it was sweet enough without it but you can always pour some of it to make it more richer and creamier! So if you haven’t planned for ur daddy as yet, then go ahead and surprise him with this simple and quicky recipe! We leave you with the beautiful poem as you must have seen above written by Parul from our Princess’s side for her ‘My daddy strongest’.

So dont wait and start to bake 🙂 Have a great day!!!

Cheers!!!

Granny’s Legendary Tips :

🍯HONEY AND CINNAMON REMEDY🍯

Honey and cinnamon combined together undoubtedly sounds so interesting. You will be surprised to see the numerous benefits of this deadly combo!! All these are tried and tested remedies and will surely give you positive results.

💁HAIR LOSS: Girls do we have your attention 😎
Apply a paste of hot olive oil, a tablespoon of honey, a teaspoon of cinnamon powder before bath, leave it for 15 min and wash.Using this special paste as a topical treatment helps increase the blood circulation in your scalp, which results in more hair growth.

💁COMMON COLD: This one has our attention for sure. The number of times Parul used to have cold is not even funny 😪 And so found this one.
When it comes to common cold, we will try just about anything when we are sick. Next time when you are down you might want to try this.Make a glass of lukewarm honey water mixed with a pinch of cinnamon powder to help boost your immune system during the cold season. It is also helpful in clearing the sinuses.

💁ARTHRITIS: Apply a paste made of the two ingredients on the affected part of the body and massage slowly. Drinking tea with honey and cinnamon daily can also help relieve pain and stiffness in joints.

💁HELPS REDUCE CHOLESTEROL: Both honey and cinnamon have the ability to lower the cholesterol level on their own. However when you combine them it just doubles the effect.Apply honey and cinnamon powder on bread instead of using jam or butter and eat it regularly for breakfast. And trust us it tastes really really good. It is believed that in the long run, this can help prevent blockages in blood vessels, heart attacks and hypercholesterolemia.

Granny’s Legendary Tips :

Let’s face the sun people ☀️ 😎

Tanning is one of the major problems during summer, and most people try to find a quick solution to it by using chemical laden bleach or opting from cosmetic peeling procedures. But these quick solutions have several side effects and cause severe damage to the skin. Therefore, you should know how to protect your skin from burning summer sun with simple home remedies that also function as natural remedy for pimple and acne removal.

💁Lemon and Aloe Vera Face Pack

Lemon is one of the best citrus fruits that have rich medicinal and cosmetic benefits. No doubt, it is widely used in various skin and hair care remedies as well as skin care products. Lemon is a natural bleaching agent and an antioxidant. It is rich in vitamin C, and the intake of lemon juice would fetch you a glowing skin. Aloe Vera on the other side is a short stemmed succulent plant that produces six antiseptics.
All you need to do is juice a lemon and besides that also mash the aloe vera leaves. Mix them properly until an aromatic paste is formed. Apply this onto the tanned area of the skin and allow it to dry. You need to apply this paste twice or thrice a day to cleanse and prevent your skin from getting tanned from time-to-time. This is also an effective cure for dark circles around eyes.

💁Turmeric Powder, Yogurt and Honey Face Pack

Turmeric powder is the basic common ingredient in every kitchen and is best known antiseptic/anti- bacterial agent. It is used in relieving the pain and as a disinfectant that is usually caused due to cuts and burns. Turmeric is also an age old home remedy that has been used in Ayurveda to treat various skin diseases. Yogurt is a dairy product just as curd and it has a gel like texture. Honey, a sweetening agent can be considered as one of the best natural moisturizing agents that helps skin retain its supple and elastic nature. It is used in various cosmetic preparations and is an antioxidant that helps in healing wounds.

Make a thick paste by mixing all the three ingredients well. Apply this pack on the dried skin and leave it for 15-20 minutes. Later, rinse it off with cold water. This pack helps in moisturizing and radiating your skin under the dire circumstances.

💁Sandal wood and Rosewater Face Pack

Sandalwood has rich benefits especially when it comes to accomplishing a fairer skin. It is used in the treatments of acne and skin aging. The soothing and cooling properties of sandalwood make it the perfect remedy for relieving sun tan and severe sunburn. Rose water is one of the best beauty products and is used in aroma therapies. It can be used as a cleanser, toner and leaves you with a refreshing feeling. The combination of sandalwood and rose water makes this pack the perfect natural remedy for sun tan removal in a gentle and nourishing way.

Make a thick paste of white or red sandalwood powder and rosewater and apply it to face. Wait for 20 minutes and allow it to dry. After this wash it with cold water and always use a soft towel to clean up your washed face. This paste relieves you from sun burns and other suntan effects

💁Banana & Milk

Mash up a banana, add some milk, mix them together to create a paste, and apply to your face for 20 minutes. Rinse with cold water and ta-da! Banana’s are rich in Vitamin A, B, and E, which are proven to be anti-aging wonders. Do refrain though from eating your mask… let’s just try and keep it on your face!

💁Drink All Day💦💦💦💦💦💦💦

Don’t forget the most critical aspect of achieving glowing skin: WATER. There is no better way to get rid of all the toxins in your body, so drink up and drink responsibly.

Take good care
