Easy Milk Chocolate Fudge

How to make easy Milk Chocolate Fudge

                     My li'l one is a fussy eater. Off late, he's started to like chocolate with no frills. I wanted to make chocolate fudge with nuts; but he will only eat plain chocolate fudge. You can guess the rest of the story here. I cut the fudge into tiny bite sized pieces, since we were having couple of friends over. I like tiny pieces of the sweet stuff, so I don't have to finish eating a large piece of something, just coz' I bit into it. Plus, we can always get seconds. So here's a recipe that you can whip up in under 30 minutes plus the setting time. Sharing this one with my friends over at CCC# 33: June -- Week 4.


3/4th cup of sugar (I used raw cane sugar)
1 can (13 oz) of sweetened condensed milk
1/4 cup, unsalted butter
1 tsp, pure vanilla extract
4 oz (2/3rd cup) semi-sweet chocolate chips or grated chocolate
1/4 cup of your favorite nuts, chopped (Optional)

Masala Lemon Rice

How to make Masala Lemon Rice

              I usually make lemon rice, with green chillies & ginger (see recipe - Lemon-Lime Rice) which needs no grinding of ingredients. Once in a while, I like to make this masala lemon rice which has ground fenugreek seeds & red chillies in it for a different flavor. This lemon rice reminds me of the kovil prasadam aka temple offering, back home. So give this recipe a try and evoke nostalgic feelings of your temple visits. Sharing this recipe with my fellow bloggers at CCC# 33: June-Week 3.

          That makes me ponder - we hardly realize that the present moment is special, in that moment (during the actual experience). We yearn for it only after we lose it or go far away from the experience. And, when that happens, even a daily/ordinary happening becomes close to our heart and we long for that experience again. I'm beginning to understand the importance of all the spiritual quotes I've read about being fully present in the moment. 
  Live in the present. - Dalai Lama

Wherever you are, be all there.  - Jim Elliot

Realize deeply that the present moment is all you ever have. - Eckhart Tolle

The present moment is the only moment that's available to us, and it is the door to all available moments. - Thich Nhat Hanh
