Chocolate H(e)aven..mmmmm.....


What I am about to write about .. is already giving me the goosebumps..I cannot begin to imagine what it might do to you... Read on...:)

I love baking.. I love baking anything with chocolate in it... to be more precise. It all started when my sister and I started "experimenting" with the oven at home when we were about 13 or something.. I still remember.. that we used to so love baking that chocolate cake from amma's cookbook. It used to be so much fun.. we used to split the activities equally between ourselves.. like Ill melt the cocoa, sift the flour and she would mix butter and powdered sugar and beat the egg whites...:) the point is that my passion for the dessert devil - aka chocolate started so far back in time...

To me dessert = equals chocolate.. Vanilla, chocolate, brownie and chocolate fudge with chocolate chips for additional company is H-E-A-V-E-N!!!! Though I don't have much of a sweet tooth ( i can hear all those smirks people!!), there are two things that I just cannot resist.. Chocolate cake and ice cream.... but of course I cannot keep devouring it all the time right? So to make myself feel better, I watch these recipe videos on you tube...(pathetic right?? but atleast it helps me stay off them for sometime...hehe)

Ok why am I telling you all this..??? Well, as I was browsing through the recipe archives, I saw this particular video of a recipe using chocolate. Its by Nigella Lawson. am not too sure all people know her, but she cooks really well.. and by "well", I mean she makes rich yummy desserts.. So there is this recipe of hers... triple choc brownies and then old fashioned chocolate cake and then dark chocolate chip cookies... ooooooohhh!!! yummy yummy yummy!! I have seen the videos some 100 times and I just don't get tired....

So guys.. if this is not haven?? what is??????
See and enjoy!!:)
