There are people in this world who prefer savory, rich or spicy dishes. And then, there are the people who have a sweet tooth the size of Manhattan.

The holiday season maybe over, but mine just got extended when I received a box full of home baked delicacies from Baking Pleasures. Shruti provides dozens of variations to the bite sized mini treats – from customized cakes to home-made chocolates to tarts and cake pops. The box I received had a chocolate tart, a cake pop and a couple of cookies. The crusty chocolate tart was filled with smooth chocolate at the centre, perfectly substituting the cheesecake. The cake pop was rich, creamy and fresh making it a very smart choice for the consumer. As far as the cookies are concerned, here’s the thing: You think a plain cookie folded into the mixture, would be a simple matter…well, it’s not! What I’ve learnt from baking all these years is that it’s not difficult to make a cookie, but to get it right. The crusty texture of the cookies was just about right, making it probably a nice addition to my morning coffee.IMG_20160216_180710

I don’t know about you, but I would prefer eating dessert over cooking lunch, any day. I hope you’re with me, because resolutions aren’t worth keeping if they don’t let you appreciate the sweet things in life.

  3. i have only two recipes of cookies, and they are my favourite of course. i just love to eat them with coffee before dinner. well, me and my husband. {soon enough, our son too}

    one of them is made of chocolate: crispy on the outside and soft on the outside. so, so yummy. and the other one is made with almonds, perfect for summer. now, i have to make some! 😀

    {if you want the recipe, i can send it to you}

      1. so you’ll need: 1/4 cup of flour / 1 tsp of yeast / a bit of salt / 225g of chocolate {break it into little pieces} / 2 soup spoons of butter / 2 big eggs / 1/2 cup sugar / 175g of extra chocolate {break it also into little pieces}

        pre-heat the oven at 180ºC. mix the flour with the yeast and salt. leave it. in a pan mix the 225g of chocolate with the butter and let it mel in bain-marie. take it out of the heat, but let it stay on the warm water.
        in another bowl, mix the eggs with the sugar with a hand beater. put in in bain-marie until it’s warm. then mix the eggs on the chocolate and add the flour. on the top sprinkle with the extra chocolate.
        put on a baking tray directly {you don’t need to put butter or vegetable paper}, put it in the oven and let it bake until it’s crispy on the outside. on mine it took only 5 minutes, but the recipe says 15. so be careful and check it from time to time. let it cool and then you can take them off with a spatula.
        make some coffee, tea or your beverage of choice, and voila! they are ready to be eaten and cried for more. (;

        when you bake them let me know how it went and if you enjoyed them! 😀

    Thank you for your support of my work. Thanks to you and a few of my other followers apparently I have fans in India.

    I wouldn’t mind seeing “Spring” translated into many of the languages spoken in India

    1. Hello! 🙂
      Hindi is the most popular Indian language. Spring is called “Vasant” when translated into Hindi. It is called the same (almost) in other Indian languages. The only difference is the pronounciation which varies from one region to another.
      Please feel free to ask any questions.

        Do you speak Hindi? Now that I have established a line of thought, I was wondering if you wouldn’t mind translating my poem “Spring” perhaps?

        I wanna see what my work would look like in other languages
