Enthusiasts suffer cooking burnout 6 months into stay-at-home life, look for fresh ideas | Pune News

Pune: After participating in various social media challenges that gained momentum when the lockdown began, enthusiastically baking, plating and taking ‘Insta-worthy’ images, people are at their wit’s end trying to keep things interesting in the kitchen.
Six months after staying home, people are going through a cooking burnout. “I love to cook, but thinking of what to make has become frustrating of late. We’ve tried many different recipes from various cuisines — Mexican, Spanish, African, and so on, to shake things up between regular Indian home food. But even that has become boring now,” said a cooking enthusiast in the city.
Chef and restaurateur Rachel Goenka said, “It’s unfair to burden one person with deciding what to cook. We usually plan a menu in advance for the week. We think about splitting up the week into vegetarian and non-vegetarian days or deciding on what day you would like to cook

Will Smith Goes Home to Bel-Air in ‘Fresh Prince’ Mansion Airbnb Tour

Will Smith put on his prince of Bel-Air crown on Monday (Sept. 28) when he gave a tour of the iconic mansion from the Fresh Prince series.

To celebrate news that he’s working with Airbnb to put the home up on the platform as a vacation rental for just five nights to celebrate the beloved sitcom’s 30th anniversary, Smith and DJ Jazzy Jeff gave fans a tour of the property. The five-minute clip shows how the home has been transformed into a space full of nostalgic artifacts from the show.

4 Fresh Renovation Ideas We’re Stealing from the Newly Reimagined San Luis Creek Lodge

Designer Nina Freudenberger describes her first visit to the old San Luis Creek Lodge, located in downtown San Luis Obispo, California, as a step back in time—well, more of a leap. “There seemed to be a medieval theme,” she says, recalling the four-poster beds, gray stone fireplaces, and dark wood ceiling beams. “Everything felt so heavy.” 

Tasked by PRG Hospitality Group with redesigning the lobby and its three guest buildings, Freudenberger landed on a modern vision for the spaces that called for fresh wall treatments and major bathroom makeovers. Still, even amid all the new white paint, the designer didn’t lose the cozy lodge details. “I wanted to keep it warm, almost like a Danish farmhouse,” she says. All the inspiration you could possibly need for your very own reno is waiting in this newly reimagined getaway.

HBO Max is giving The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air fans something to be thankful for this fall. To celebrate three decades of Fresh-ness, the cast of the iconic sitcom is reuniting for “an unscripted special looking back at the series and the cultural impact [it] has had since its debut,” TVLine has learned.

Returning cast members include Will Smith (Will), Tatyana Ali (Ashley), Karyn Parsons (Hilary), Joseph Marcell (Geoffrey), Daphne Maxwell Reid (Aunt Viv No. 2), DJ Jazzy Jeff (Jazz) and Alfonso Ribeiro (Carlton). Sadly, James Avery — who played beloved family patriarch Philip Banks — died in 2013.

Even though HBO Max is teasing “special surprise guests,” we aren’t holding our collective breath for an appearance from Janet Hubert (Aunt Viv No. 1). The actress, who famously left the show over behind-the-scenes conflict with Smith, reacted to a 2017 cast reunion (pictured above)
