Happy Birthday Chow and Chatter!

Chow and Chatter turns one tomorrow, what an amazing journey it has been my blog started in December last year when staying home with Jasmine as I thought it would be fun to write, cook and share health tips.

Then one fine day the darling Sweta of Bonne Nutrition left a comment on one of my posts. I was amazed someone had actually read my blog, she introduced me to so many new blogs, then I joined foodbuzz and meet so many more great bloggers.

Chow and Chatter is an ever evolving part of me!, I have changed the name the look and even got the domain. The blog inspired me to write, I have quite a few clips now and even blog for a few companies. In fact I just started blogging for my local Indian store and also do a twitter account and facebook fanpage!

Amazingly I was interviewed for a freelance writing website today, I used to see writers on here and be in awe its amazing to be one of them!

I can hardly believe how blogging has changed my life, I have meet some amazing bloggers around the world and am sure to meet many more, making lasting friendships along the way.

I made these Madeleine's to celebrate with a hint of cocoa and coconut, they turned out wonderfully, so go ahead and have one with me!

  • 2 eggs
  • 75g sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 90g flour (about a cup)
  • 3g of baking soda
  • grated zest of 1/2 a lemon
  • 90g melted butter, still liquid but cold
  • one spoon of runny honey
  • a few drops of vanilla essence
  • tablespoon cocoa
  • tablespoon shredded coconut
  1. melt the butter and keep it to one side
  2. whip the eggs with sugar and salt then slowly add the sifted flour and baking powder, lemon and vanilla essence.
  3. Mix until smooth then add the melted butter and honey and leave to chill for 30 minutes
  4. bake for 10 minutes at 350 degrees.

From the bottom of my heart I want to thank you all for following along with me on this journey and for all your comments, I love you all, and enjoy reading your posts and getting inspired to be a better cook and person.

Love and Hugs
