Remember how Lulu started school last week? And how her first day was a flying success? Well, Monday morning brought several inches of snow, and Lulu had her first snow day. I’ll admit that when I woke up and saw the rather impressive dusting, I felt mildly disappointed. I had so much to do, and now my four hours of quiet were no more. My morning changed from productive….to playful (but you know what…that change was more than okay). I’m realizing that my little girl is growing up fast, and although I cherish the few hours I get with just a cup of tea and my laptop, I treasure the moments I get to spend with her even more.
It has been my dream to create a brownie recipe. For as long as I can remember, they’ve been my favourite chocolatey treat. I’ve tried numerous, countless attempts now to create my own brownie recipe, but somehow it’s still not quite there. However, amongst my attempts to create one, I’ve managed to create some great alternative recipes. Most of them have been more like fondant puddings or sponges, but delicious nonetheless. During my latest attempt to create a brownie recipe, I ended up making something worthy of becoming its own creation.
My love for Mushrooms is legendary and My SO’s hate for them was legendary. Then I created this Hot minty mushrooms recipe, inspired by Pizza Hut, India. They made some delicious mushrooms with herbs and garlic and I knew if I added in some heat, it will be just the perfect appetizer. Now the guy who used to hate any mushroom dish “requests” for these hot minty mushrooms every now and then. That is quite a legendary turnaround! isn’t it?
