Butterscotch Blondies with Pecan Nuts

It's been long since i updated my blog. I haven't posted anything in the blog for a while. When Lubna of  " Yummy Food " asked me to do a guest post for her Christmas baking series i immediately told yes. Thank you Lubna for giving me this wonderful opportunity. She has a wonderful blog and i always admire her passion towards blogging. She is very good friend of mine and we became friends through blogging. When we were staying in the same apartment in Bangalore, we used to go out together, have lunch together and also we used to go out for reviews along with my other blogger friends Satrupa Dash and Deepasri Deb. We four often have potluck together. I remember how fun filled those days where. I miss you all guys.

Ok now coming to today's post, i m going to share a simple baking recipe of Butterscotch Blondies with Pecan nuts. Blondies are like brownies without cocoa and contains brown sugar but substitutes vanilla for cocoa. Like brownies, blondies also have other flavourful additions like nuts, desiccated coconut, chocolate chips etc.

Please do check for the recipe of Butterscotch Blondies at Yummy Food.

Review: Hungry Bird Burger from Five Star Chicken

Few days back, I got a chance to review the Hungry bird Burger from Five Star Chicken at Kaggadasapura outlet, which is nearby to my place. Five Star Chicken is one of the fast food chain that offers good value for money. 

These outlets are small and cosy stores tucked in each and every corner of Bangalore. Therefore whenever you feel to relish and try different varieties of fried chicken its always easier for you find out a nearby shop. The brand offers a wide range of chicken recipes in spicy Indian flavours as well as Asian and Thai flavours.
