A proud moment in my life. S and I finally managed to bake something, and something edible. Umm.. not just edible.. delicious :D!
I love cooking, and I am fairly good at it.. I just need to have the mood for it. But baking- there have been a few catastrophes. Instances like cake turning into a sticky gooey lump, or sometimes charcoal, etc.
But do I quit? Of course not. I am quite a courageous and relentless soul ;). And as we all know, practice makes perfect.
The aroma is heavenly- sugary-sweet, chocolatey, warm and inviting.. I am just dying to taste one.. Come on, hurry up, cool down faster!!!
Oh! Didn’t I tell you what I baked? Cookies :D!!! Chocolate chip cookies, correctly shaped and golden brown- absolutely perfect! Decorated with M & M’s (a little childish probably :P, but they look great ;)).. Don’t they?
Wait there’s one more.
We borrowed Nigella Lawson’s recipe, as it seemed the easiest ;). Just kidding.. I think she is a great cook, and I am huge fan of her sho.. However a few changes had to be made as the recipe contained egg (I am a vegetarian).
My partner in crime, another cooking enthusiast (and enthusiastic we were :D) is more adept than I am. And between us we finally completed our masterpieces.
Oh they are just yummy. Absolutely the right consistency, not too hard, not too soft. The melt-in-the mouth kinds. I can go on and on and on, but I rather spend this time enjoying my work, right :D??
So I guess b-bye, see you’ll soon.
