New month …in year end!

Tuesday 1 December 2009 | Posted by Kishi | desserts,foodaholics

Hello hello…Its dec 1st!! Why am I excited?? Just like that! And it’s a new month; my last month was kind of crazy even though good things also happened like TED. With Ted came a whole bunch of new friends.I know some I will keep for life. Hoping the coming weeks have some great goodies for me in store 🙂

You know I have this habit of saying “then tell stories”. It basically means what else is going on or “aur batao” in Hindi as we say it. So I was talking to a friend in USA and on me saying the same to her, she went on and on about how she is missing me and the rocky road bars I use to make and how she wishes to see the Christmas in India. (I think I need to tell her a story in return of how Diwali is the Christmas she is imagining).Anyhow and that got me craving for the rocky road bars I use to make to snack on for friends sometime. Me being me!-The crazy late night bird, I decided to bake in the middle of the night and I must say the end result was beautiful. It did require some patience but it was totally worth it. I will give the recipe in few days once I tweak the amounts.
