I am back to the gang!!!!

There are certain reasons why am I smiling from ear to ear. :-D.  Some of the most important reasons would be that

I am back (wooooooohoooo)

My results came out amazing

And the fantastic war that we won against thieves

Also, now that I am back it cannot go without a recipe post ;)

Yes, people I am back. I took a great big break of around 2 months. I am so happy to be back. I am very thankful to every one of my blogger friends for the support that I had received since I have not been around. I hope that love and comments continue. I did try my best to keep the Guest blogger on, but due to time constraints and exams over my head I missed some posts. I will make sure that I make up for this and I shall start guest posts right from the coming Tuesday. Extremely sorry for missing this.

Now, to a super news – my resultsssssssssssssssssss. I still get goose bumps when it comes to exam dates and results. Such was my condition last week. I was really tensed for the results of my German level which were recently announced.

What, oh I missed to mention the result ;) (height of shamelessness hhihiihiihi)

I stood First in my classs, whoooooooohooooooo. It’s such an awesome feeling that I can’t express. I felt as a kid would feel, looking at the results and felt like flying high up above. I am waiting for the next term to start.

Now, the third and the amazing thing. Some days back Madhuri from Cook- Curry Nook sent me a message regarding a certain (I don’t want to give any promotions to them hence not mentioning their website or other links) FB group had copied a photograph of mine from the post Bread Upma. Madhuri has done an amazing job fighting with them all the way for couple of days. Ignoring her health due to which she could not sit at the computer for a long time she kept fighting with them. Finally, happiness and rewards. Their facebook page and their identities are banned and we won.

Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate chip cookies are also know as Toll house cookies. These lovely mouth watering delights were invented accidentally by Ruth Wakefield, 1934 who owned the Toll house inn, Whitman, Massachusetts.

I always wonder whether the Nankhatai (an Indian biscuit) is some way related to these cookies, maternal paternal relations ;)

Serves – 5

Ingredients -

All purpose flour- 1 ¼ cup
Baking Powder- 1 tspn
Salt- ½ tspn
Chocolate chips- 150 gms
Brown Sugar- 6 tbspn
White Sugar- 3
Unsalted butter (softened) -100 gms
Egg- 1
Vanilla Essence- 1 tspn

Procedure -

  • Sieve together the flour, salt and baking powder 2-3 times. Keep it aside.


  • In a bowl beat the egg along with the vanilla essence.


  • In another bowl mix together the butter, brown sugar, white sugar and with a hand mixer mix it along with the egg and vanilla essence mixture. Beat till the sugar is properly dissolved.


  • Add the flour mixture gradually till it forms a batter and take care no lumps are formed.


  • Add the chocolate chips in to the batter and mix well with a spatula.


  • Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees Centigrade.


  • On a non greased cookie sheet or normal OTG tray evenly place small amount of this mixture with the help of a spoon. Press gently so it forms a cookie shape. Take care that enough space is left between each cookie.


  • Place the tray in the middle and set the oven on both coils. Bake the cookies on 180° Centigrade for 10-15 minutes or till the cookies become golden in color.


  • Remove the cookies from the oven. Let the cookies remain on the tray for 5 minutes. Later transfer them on a wired rack for cooling.


  • Enjoy the cookies!!

Tips -

For baking any dish please follow the correct weights and measurements with measuring cups.
Using a wooden spatula will always help.
Store the cookies in an air tight jar.
While baking always use eggs at room temperature.
For weight watchers use castor sugar instead of white sugar.
