18-09-14 (3) – Marco Pierre White

Although I decided to post only two quotes to make up for the lost day, but I was recently watching an elimination episode of my all time favorite cooking show Masterchef Australia season 7 and it was Marco Pierre White’s week. Who is Marco Pierre White you ask? Well he was, at the time the youngest chef to achieve three Michelin stars, is known as the “enfant terrible”, godfather of modern cooking and yeah, he is the same man who made Gordon Ramsey cry. 😛  Apart from the factual information I believe that under that petrifying and tough exterior, he is an amazing man. The way he praises food and finds good in everybody is truly applaudable and probably, that is the is reason why I love him so much! ❤

So coming back to the episode, when one of the contestants Byron got eliminated, he said something to him that was so inspiring that i HAD to share it with you guys. Here goes…

Chocolate Chip Cookie For One! :D

When you are alone and don’t want to make a batch of chocolate chip cookies, fearing that you might finish them all by yourself because they are so delish; here is a quick and easy recipe for a single serving of it that I stumbled upon while looking for cookie recipes. 😀

Things you need:

1 tbsp. melted butter

1 tbsp white sugar

1 tbsp brown sugar

3 drops of vanilla essence

a pinch of salt

1 egg yolk

1/4 cup all purpose flour

2 tbsp chocolate chips

a deep cup or bowl.

Instructions:

Mix them together. Add the chocolate chips at the end.Put it in the deep bowl/cup and microwave it for 40 – 60 seconds at full power.

Yep, its that easy. I made them myself, but completely forgot to take a photo of it but they looked and tasted amazing. For all the weight watchers out there, you can omit the white sugar and only add brown sugar. Do try it, and comment! 😀

Happy eating!

Celebrity Weddings On The Rise

Seems like the wedding bells keep on ringing in the celeb world. First, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie tied the knot on 23rd August 2014, and now my all-time favorite “How I Met Your Mother” character, Barney Stinson a.k.a Neil Patrick Harris!!! 😀 Being in a relationship of +10 years with David Burtka, and actor and chef, the couple said their vows on Saturday, 6th September 2014 in Italy. This was confirmed by a Tweet from Neil:
