    Sinful bliss...

    There are days when I'm dying for a lavish full-course home-cooked meal, and then, there are days like today, when I'm craving for a richly sinful decadent bite! To be truly honest, I have a sweet-tooth, infact, my hubby always says I have sweet-teeth!! I'm the kind of person who always looks forward to dessert. No matter how good the food is, I make sure I don't stuff myself just so I have space for dessert. At times it gets so bad that I even skip the meal and head straight to the dessert table!! With hubby dear in Chicago for a business meeting, I had the option of NOT cooking dinner today. But that doesn't mean I'm going to starve. No siree!!, it just means that I get to satisfy my hunger with decadent goodness! I'm not into baking all that much, so bringing a big fancy cake out of my oven rarely happens. Instead, I love desserts that I can make in a jiffy and enjoy bite after bite. With the sugar craving setting up, I went into the kitchen to see what my choices were. There was my sister's leftover cake in the fridge, but I decided against it...had too much already!! Then my eyes set upon a big bowl of fresh strawberries! Two minutes later, I was cooking up a sin! Chocolate and Strawberry grilled Croissants
    Ingredients: 3-4 strawberries, sliced 2 tbsp Nutella 1 tbsp semi-sweet chocolate chips 1 large croissant Method: Slice croissant lenght-wise into halves. On the inside of one slice, spread Nutella and layer over with fresh sliced strawberries. Sprinkle chocolate chips on top and cover with other slice of croissant to form a sandwich. Grill for 4-5 minutes till strawberries soften and chocolate chips start to melt. Don't feel guilty while enjoying this taste of heaven!

    Desserts can be so irresistble. When I go to Buffet Meals, I always prefer to start with the buffets and stuff myself leaving very little space for the main course.
