The Unexpected Win

I started reading SueΒ  about 3 years ago. She is an amazing writer who writes about everything under the sun. And she has been blogging for TEN years!!

As a part of her blog birthday, she was doing giveaways every week in June. I missed the first two 😦 but the third one I managed to read, which was about food, that too cake!!!

and I wrote in my entry in her comment section πŸ™‚

and her delightfully nice son Rahul picked up my name from the chits she had created to select me as the winner to her giveaway.

Enough background, now just drool away…yummmmmmmmm

She sent it ALL THE WAY FROM CALCUTTA!!!!

How wonderful no?
The brownie is good enough to gobble all of it together, RD and R attacked it with a vengence yesterday night after I returned home and opened it. Thankfully RD hadnt open it before I reached home, otherwise I doubt anything would have been left πŸ™‚

and the packaging..gosh! what packaging she had done. The brownies were just so perfect….I can go on and on about the taste, but I will just stop and give Sue a very very heart felt thank you!

And just to add, I thought the ones I had at CCD were the bestest ever..honestly they are nothing in comparison to this…lucky lucky me πŸ™‚

  12. Sue says:

    Goodness, R’s Mom, I don’t know what to say! Thanks for taking the photos. I thought of it only after I sent the parcel off and then I wished i had. As for the packing, well, I took tips from Monika Manchanda’s cake delivery to me. πŸ™‚

    • R's Mom says:

      You are a rockstar Sue..and RD and R are total fans of your baking…you have a virtual pedestal in the R household for being one of the most large hearted people we know πŸ™‚ Imagine sharing brownies..wow!

      • Sue says:

        I give away a lot of what I bake, actually. Only Rahul eats my cakes and these days he has also become extremely selective about what he’ll eat.

        Anyway, everybody, this is the recipe I followed: http://saffrontrail.blogspot.in/2012/06/insanely-good-chocolate-almond-brownies.html I have tried various permutations and combinations of coffee, nuts and chocolate and everything worked very well, so really, if you want to have brownies I suggest you bake these because R’s Mom is not exaggerating, they really are better than anything you’ll find in any shop.

        Dipali, I’ll make you some. πŸ™‚

  13. pixie says:
