Chocolicious Almond Honey Cake

Love…a beautiful hue…an unforgettable tale…a moment to live in…a price to pay…a poetry to recite…a tune to relive…and a promise to hold!

I prize thy love more than whole mines of gold,
Or all the riches that the East doth hold.
My love is such that rivers cannot quench,
Nor ought but love from thee give recompense.
Thy love is such I can no way repay;
The heavens reward thee manifold, I pray.
Then while we live, in love letโ€™s so persever,
That when we live no more, we may live ever.

Love is religion for me where no one can divide no matter how hard they try…it’s a prayer for me and it’s an element which makes me what I am… My love story is a very simple beautiful tale which started in a college 10 years back… Just like any regular hindi movie stuff.. we met for the first time as classmates and had a ย big fight in the 2nd hour due to seating issue…as usual ego clashed…attitude clashed and 6 months gone… We even didn’t know that both of us belong to the same city and stay at just a distance of 3 kms in our hometown…we were so much engrossed in our own lives and attitude fight that we didn’t even bothered… But that said – Life has it’s own plans and for us also same thing happened… One fine day we met again face to face through a common friend and to keep the things on a lighter note simply said hi-hello for formality…One single ‘Hi’ and One common friend…Life took a beautiful turn and our love story blossomed unknowingly…Time passed and we fell in the hands of Reliance Mobile which used to offer Free R to R call… ๐Ÿ˜€ Classroom studies, Notes making, Exam preparations, Hostel stories, Friends bitching, Crush discussions, Outing plans… All thanks to Reliance ๐Ÿ˜€ and today after 12 nostalgic years of meeting, 10 amazing years of loving along with 4 beautiful years of wedding…We are here together as AbhisheKriti ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ …

My hubby is little soft on health but throws extreme tantrums for eating healthy food… Junk is his favorite and apart from that Dal-Chawal but again I being extremely experimental, I can’t live on only two extreme points so I always come up with his favorite dishes using the healthiest ingredients which he can’t even imagine ๐Ÿ˜€ … Making him eat fresh greens and fresh fruits ย is the art which only I own till date… not even his mum can make him eat it… ๐Ÿ˜€
