I am currently devouring this book called " Watermelon" by Marian Keyes. I will share with you an excerpt from the book. It goes like this " I never lost my appetite, no matter what the occasion exam nerves, job interviews, wedding day jitters, food poisoning- nothing short of death made the slightest difference to my ability to eat like a race horse. Whenever I met a thin person who would trill, 'Oh, silly old me, I simply forget to eat,' I would stare at them with ill concealed bafflement and bitterness, feeling unglamarous and lumpy and bovine. The lucky bitches, I would think, how could anyone forget to eat. I had an appetite - what an untrendy and shameful thing to have. Because when the world ends and we have shuffled off our mortal coils and we are all in heaven and time sizes to exist and we are pure of spirit and have an eternal life, which we will spend contemplating the almighty, I will still need a kitkat every morning at 11'o clock."
I was rolling with laughter after reading this. It was totally me.. I love food and yes I have an appetite and I am not ashamed of it. I love all kinds of food, the only criteria applicable for me is, it should taste good.
I have recently discovered my love for baking cakes. They go really well with my hot cuppa of coffee or chai!! Today while flipping through the net I came across this beautiful receipe of a blueberry crumb cake. Even before trying it out myself I knew I had to put it down.
