Can you tell us about when you learned to sew and how it developed into your passion?
What were some of your first projects that you created?
I love your Tea Tote (and I personally use mine all the time) – where did this idea originate? What are your future plans for your Tea Tote?
So the initial idea of the tote came from my love of tea. I love Earl Grey, English breakfast, and Indian chai. I didn’t like travelling without my tea and was looking for a unique way to be able to carry the teabags when I travel. Thus, was born the Tea tote! My future plans are to have a locally based in the USA company create these and I would be able to have them available in retail stores.
I love that you’re starting to teach children the craft of sewing. Can you tell us what the first steps are when teaching a child basic sewing skills? How often are you teaching?
What has been your all time favorite sewing project? Is there somewhere that we can see a photo?
And lastly, it has been so awesome to be able to watch you grow as a business owner, transform your body, AND spread such positivity throughout the world. Can you share with us what is coming up in 2017 for Sewl Sister?
Thank you again, Shankari – It has been a pleasure working with you and we are all excited to see what the future holds for Sewl Sister! For all of you tea lovers out there, make sure you check out Shankari’s Tea Totes here!

Roasted Buffalo Cauliflower Bites
Wings – they are one of the most popular appetizers in America – especially during football season. And with the Super Bowl 2017 right around the corner, I am pretty sure they will be a a hot commodity in homes, bars and restaurants everywhere this weekend.
I love the flavor of hot wings – there is something about them that is so addicting. I’m not sure if it’s the hot tanginess of the hot sauce mixed with the cool and blue cheese creamy dip or what – but they have always been a favorite of mine!
This week, in our 16 Week Transformation Program, we are coming up with a list of healthy apps to have during the Super Bowl – and don’t get me wrong, there are plenty of healthy ways to make wings – but it’s so much fun to try new recipes, especially when they include vegetables, so these are going on our snack list for sure.
1 medium to large head of cauliflower, cut into florets (6 – 8 cups)
1/2 cup of Hot hot sauce (we use Frank’s)
2 tablespoons butter
a pinch of salt
a pinch of pepper
- Preheat your oven to 450 and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. If you don’t have parchment paper, you can spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.
- Melt the butter in a saucepan with the hot sauce, salt and pepper.
- Once the hot sauce mixture is combined, pour over the cauliflower florets in a large bowl, and then mix until all of the cauliflower is coated.
- Pour all of the coated cauliflower, plus any remaining mixture, onto the baking sheet and put in the oven.
- Bake for 20 minutes, or until the cauliflower starts to crisp.
- Serve with a healthy blue cheese or ranch dip.
Stayed tuned for a few more healthy app recipes to go along with the big game this weekend!
