Food: german inspired meat stuffed cabbage

This recipe is dedicated to my wonderful friend Anja. Yes, she is German and she inspired me to make this tasty dish. There are various types of stuffed cabbage in the German cuisine. I obviously added my own flavor to it. I used ground beef to make this but any other ground meat can be used to make this dish even more healthier than it already is. I will definitely try other variations to this recipe since it was so effortless to make.

Dwell: a warm bangladeshi home surrounded by green

This intimate and tastefully decorated home belongs to my artistic cousin and her beautiful family. They live in Canada and the green you see in the pictures is truly that vivid and deeply saturated. The split level house is from the 70's and has four levels - a large basement with lots of storage and a full bath, a cosy living room that leads to the lush backyard, the tv room with the kitchen/dining framed by large windows, and then the private spaces boasting the bedrooms. The home has been completely renovated so it has the wonderful layout with large operable windows and vintage details with all the sleek finishes and furnishings. A lush green outdoor hugs this home tightly all around it. The first photo is a view of the front yard and the street it sits on. 

This is the cozy tv room that leads to the lush backyard.

My First *Feature*

I am humbled by this feature on thanks to Tudor Davis. To tell you the truth it was very difficult to do something that was all about me. Personally I don't think I have accomplished anything. It was just a little effort - but looking at this makes me happy and humbled. I wouldn't have been able to compile this feature without the help of my beloved husband and my dearest cousin. And besides that I am forever thankful to everyone in and out of my life.

Architecture: BAPS shri swaminarayan mandir, toronto, ca

After a full day of chasing traffic through Toronto, my cousin practically forced us to make one last stop on the way home. And it was totally worth it. In the middle of scattered dull two/three story listless buildings, sat this wonder. The organization BAPS has a temple in almost every major city in the North America but there are only a few that is so architecturally interesting. This particular one houses a Stone Mandir or Temple and a Wooden Haveli or Mansion. I am quoting their exact words in order to explain the two beautiful structures. When we reached the visiting hours were over and the gates were closed. But that didn't stop us from getting inside and constantly clicking the shutter but we were soon respectfully escorted outside!
