I have known Sushil for more than ten years and have been eating her cooking ever since. Her food is absolutely delicious. All her recipes are unique, she makes all the masalas herself at home and makes sure all of them are healthy. Our favorites are her extremely tasty and crispy samosas, gulab jamuns, and the moist and heavenly chocolate cake. Her chickpea curry is to die for. My daughters love her cakes and cookies and finish them in a second. She puts in a lot of love and passion… Read more “Delicious, healthy and flavorful”

Random Acts of Kindness
You don’t need money, just a little time to give mental support and be kind to all. Check on the elderly, bring their Newspaper to their door in bad weather, say hello to your neighbors when you see them, wish them happy holidays and birthdays etc. Call your parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles; talk to them to make sure they are not lonely; thank the soldiers when you see them for keeping us safe; thank priests, police officers, teachers, postal workers, newspaper persons, and trash collectors for their services. Write notes to a lonely and unknown person and make his or her day. These acts of kindness have a trickle-down effect.
