My friend recently went on a trip to t USA. I asked her to get be dried ber which are sold at a bomb here in India. She said she wud try to get them as all websites are giving a delivery day way beyond her travel date. After she returned to India, she called me a told “Come n take ur berries” I was on cloud nine… I finally can bake with berries wow!
Went to her home the other day, had loads of fun with her 1.5 yrs old daughter… while leaving she loaded my hands with the berries! yay!
As oranges are in season, I wanted to bake with oranges. There was huge slab of cooking chocolate lying in the fridge from a long time.. so I planned to bake this biscotti…
