Happy Belated Anniversary To My Parents

What you learn to be the basis of a good marriage is often reflected by your parents. How they get along, work with each other as life partners is often subconsciously rubbed off on you and when your time comes, you try and act like that too. My time is very far off – it does not equal boy cooties (:P), more like a big framed picture of Leonardo Di Caprio from Titanic. Alright, if you insist I will hang that in my room.

But my parents, to me, seem like the perfect marriage. I don’t know if they believe in soul mates but I do and I know they are. They love each other, respect each other, regard each other and are the best of friends. And that is exactly what I wish to find someday. Leonardo was a little old but someday ;)

Happy 20th Anniversary Ma, Papa. If anyone deserves this tart it is you. The fact that you guys will willingly share this tart means you have the most solid of relationships.

I can’t begin to express how much I learn from and keep learning from you guys – the way you tease each other. The way you let go of each others’ faults and work around it. The way you show much you care for one another through the little things you do. A surprise present. Making a favourite meal. Going down at midnight to get the other some cereal or a cucumber sandwich.

Nutella Baking Week Finale: Nutella Crème Brulee

Alack and alas, all good things must come to an end. And as far as good things go, this week has to be absolutely one of the best. Like the chocolate chip cookie dough baking week started at the beginning of my summer holidays (can you believe I only have 1 week – ONE week!!!), this week has shown me that Nutella is really better than just in a toasted sandwich or on toast.

The variety with which one can eat this spread is astounding, and once more, we thank the Italians for introducing us to yet another fabulous food to tingle our tastebuds.
But fun fact: Pizza was originally from Greece, just a baked piece of stale bread with olive oil and herbs on it for the working class. When Queen Margherita of Italy came to Greece, she liked the taste so much that the original Margherita pizza was made for her and she took it back to Italy, who have forever increased the range since :D

Before the real post begins, I am sorry to say I won’t be able to show you any frozen ice cream ball photos since it needs to freeze overnight or at least 5-6 hours and I won’t be home tonight to do the blog post. Sincerest apologies. But you won’t be angry in the first place.
