A HEALTHY MEAL WITH BAGRRY’S !

One of the leading brands of healthy food and breakfast cereals in India. Recieved a bag full of the most nutiritous products from them .My motto for this year was to stay fit and remain healthy. By trying out Bagrry’s I really feel I am one step ahead. 

WHY BAGRRY’S? 

 As their tagline suggests “Let’s put health first” they deal In making healthy products with exceptional quality. Products like Muesli, oats, bran and many more are what they are serving with aim of setting new standards in innovation, responsible nutrition and quality manufacturing.

Their main focus is the quality of the product that they are putting in the packets. They strive for excelence and do not compromise on the quality at all.They believe that being natural has a lot of benefits and that is why nothing artificial is used. Making sure that each product from their packaging to the ingredients inside, everything is PERFECT. They also select their oats from the British countryside and all the almonds come from the sun-kissed fields in California.

MY BOX OF GOODNESS.

WHAT ALL WAS IN THE BOX : 

CRUNCHY MUESLI– Fruit and nut with cranberries. 

MASALA OATS 

OATS ATTA

WHITE OATS

CRUNCHY MUESLI –  Almonds, rasins and honey

CRUNCHY MUESLI – No added sugar, diet. 

SPECIAL SLIM MUESLI

While looking and these products and reading so much about them I thought I would be creating things out of the box with these delicious and nutritional boxes. Something that is a dessert yet healthy, a meal for breakfast, something to go along with lunch and dinner. To show the my followers how you could create so many innovational things out of these products.

 And I also decided to share the recipes with you so you could order your Bagrry’s product and make something yummylicious and yet healthy.

INGREDIENTS

FOR THE CRUST

  • Bagrry’s Oats for Atta – 1 cup
  • Butter – 2 ½ tsp
  • Water (cold) – 2 tbsp
  • Egg yolk – 1 tbsp
  • Salt – 1 tsp

FOR THE FILLING

  • Dates – ½ cup
  • Butter – 1 tbsp
  • Water – ½ cup

PREPARATION

FOR THE FILLING

  • Make the filling by placing the dates, butter and water in a small pan over high heat. Bring to a boil
  • Set the pan aside for the mixture to cool completely and for the dates to absorb some of the liquid
  • Once it has cooled, place the mixture in a food processor and grind till you get a smooth paste

FOR CRUST

  • Add the flour and salt in a bowl.
  • Rub in the butter and egg until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
  • Add enough water to get a soft but not sticky dough. Wrap the dough in cling film and keep it in the fridge for 10 minutes
  • Roll out the dough to line the tart tin. Bake for about 15 minutes.
  • Pour the filling  in this baked tart crust
  • Serve warm or at room temperature.

These turned out to be exceptionally good!! They were a perfect new dessert that I would be making very often. Not at all fattening, healthy, and full of nutrition. A new feather added to the box.

I tasted the Belgian chocolate mousse dome and Hazel Nut Krispy Crunch chocolate pyramid that hands down tasted heavenly. These pretty looking delight was not only appealing for the eyes but the taste was MIND-BLOWING. 

Other things that I tasted apart from the delicious cupcakes and cheesecakes that were presented in such a cute way, they have some other delicious savouries like the CHEESE STICKS. These are something out of the blue. With sesame on it, they tasted the best out of everything. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. 

The brownie and the chocolate chunk cookies were amaze-balls! The were soft, crunchy with the right amount of sweetness. Believe me I ended up making a Brownie cookie shake out of these beauties which ended up tasting like worlds best Milk shake. The macarons that came along were crisp, and light-as-a-feather. And If you are a Macaron lover, Leave everything and run to this place.

Tea Time Tale Bakery – Gurgaon

Tea time tale delivered these yum-ness at my doorstep today!

image

They are based in Gurgaon. A mother-daughter collab  who specialises in desserts such as jar cakes, cupcakes, tea time cakes and customised according to occasions! 

What was on my doorstep consisted of two cute little jars and a tea time cake. The packaging was simple in a white box with a ribbon bow which went well with the whole theme. It gave sophisticated/elegant look to the goodies. 

After unpacking it I found mouth watering and beautifully crafted blueberry tea cake and heaven filled inside those little jars of strawberry cheesecake & chocolate fudge.

image image

The strawberry cheesecake was out of this world. It was smooth, creamy, just sweet enough with a hint of tartness and a perfect base. I couldnt stop digging into this divine jar 🙈

The chocolate fudge was something I went bonkers for. It was the PERFECT one I have tasted in a longgg time! Sweetness right on point! Just wow.

Blueberry cake was soooo pretty that I had to think twice before digging into it. The detailing, design, the intricacy everything was remarkable. It was so moist from the inside and it literally melted in my mouth. I have visually seen and tasted a lot of home made cakes/desserts, but the amount accuracy of detailing this cake had was F-L-A-W-L-E-S-S. There were I guess two to three shades of blue icing on the cake which looked so lovely and different that it became the key highlight of the whole package. From those tiny little leaves to the small bow on the right hand side of the cake. Everything was just P-E-R-F-E-C-T.

image image image 

A big shoutout to @teatimetale. Im sure I will order from you guys the next time Im in need of cakes or any specific dessert in general. 😀

P.S – my hubby went a little cray cray after eating the strawberry chessecake. He personally feels it is one of the best he has ever tasted. ❤

Follow @teatimetale1 on Instagram and the next time you have a birthday party, baby showers or high tea just contact them. 

                          CIAO PEEPS!!! Love from hopshophog. Dream big. Stay focused.

FESITYFOXDIARIES & LEVIS TIE UP – DELHI

FEISTYFOXDIARIES and LEVIS hosted this event on the 23rd of sep in South ex, part 1, delhi.

  The main idea behind this collaboration was to work with and around

THE NEW LEVI’S® WOMEN’S DENIM COLLECTION FOR FALL 2015

Levis showroom

For the Fall 2015 season, the Levi’s obsessed over the details – from the fit and fabric to finish and style – to create a transformational women’s jean collection. The Levi’s brand global design team identified the key fits and styles that women want, obsessively working to optimize the latest fabric innovations and slimming technologies, creating the perfect fitting jean for each body type. Such innovations include the most advanced stretch and recovery, signature authentic Levi’s details and world-class finishing. – See more at: http://feistyfoxdiaries.blogspot.in/#sthash.rjEKbgPx.dpuf

Feistyfoxdiaries hosted this event with levis for all the fashionistas in town. It was an event only with exclusive invites given my Feistyfoxdiaries. The event was all about Styling & Fashion and also about delicious food & wine!

Chicken tarts    Choco shot with marshmallow      Macaroons :D    Wine & cheese

When I entered the store I saw that it was shut down for public for the respective day and was only open for the bloggers in town. Being the first one to reach at the store , I personally got alot of time to spend  the host herself. She was so grounded & nice to talk too that I think I fell in love with her 😛 and not to forget shes so pretty that you might just keep drooling!!

Feistyfoxdiaries & Me

I was taken around and showed how the event is going to go about. They had selfie booth that could print instant photos ..and like you all know Girls and no selfies? Unbelievable !! And yes I guess everyone just ended up spending most of their time in that small corner in the levis store. And when we finally got tired of those selfies, we shifted to the hair and makeup station.. So basiciallly the whole event was dedicated for styling.

The Levis peeps had kept their new fall collection 2015 infront of us

This new collection was on display for us along with few pieces of tops, jackets and shirts; formal to casual.  We had to style up A LOOK and had to keep in mind on what occasion can that be worn at . This was the highlight of the evening and trust me I had alot of fun. wohooooo

levis showroom- superskinny jeans, black shirt with pearls

What I chose to wear was a casual black shirt with light blue denims (super skinny) paired up with pearl neckless. This look was perfect for a date night or even if u make sudden plans of clubbing or bar hopping! 🍸👀

Then we headed over to the makeup and hair station where you could do both according to your respective look .

And then finally came the ramp walk for all the fashionistas!!!  And in the end three best dressed winners were declared who received free gift vouchers from Levis.

Taking selfies, posing with the levis board, having finger licking food and dressing up like fashionistas – all in all it was sooo much fun and memorable.

The event ended  on a sweet note by levis handing us over with goodie bags that consisted of a wallet, scarf and a 500 rs off on our next purchase. lalaa 😀 Lucky me cause I was just about to buy a new pair of denims and now I know where to go to 👯

Goodie bag from Levis_in

It was a great experience and something I would love to do it again !! Events like these are a must for upcoming bloggers like us, who are new with this industry and are looking for help and someone to guide us. Stephannie( Feistyfoxdiaries) was a great mentor and a lovely person to talk too .

And guys stay tuned… next post will be about Tea time tales bakery based in Gurgaon !! 😀

Till then Dream big 🙂 stay focused.
