So, we completed 5 years of wedded bliss last week. My marriage was arranged by my parents and we got married 3 months after our engagement. And since he was working abroad, we had no opportunity to meet before the wedding. Since he was from Kerala and I was from TamilNadu, the language and the cuisine were very new to me. So this 5 years has been an incredibly adventurous journey of discovering each others’ likes , dislikes and also each others’ level of patience and I loved every moment of it. And I still love and I will continue to love this journey of togetherness. Happy Anniversary, Sri. Here’s to our years of togetherness, happiness along with our Big Lion , Niranjan.

Bonded forever …..
Whats a celebration without a chocolate cake? So I made this sourcream chocolate cake filled with chocolate buttercream and chocolate ganache. This is a choco – lovers’ dream come true.
1 and 2/3 cups All Purpose Flour
1 1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup oil
2 teaspoons vanilla essence
1/2 cup club soda
1. Pre heat oven to 180 C. Lightly butter two 8 inch round pans
2. In a big bowl , add all the ingredients and beat until completely combined.
3. Pour into prepared pans and bake for 30 minutes.
This is how the final cake looked like after a minimal decoration with colourful mini – sugar balls decoration
And here’s wishing myself and my husband many more years of togetherness
