How I “whipped up” my Easter with Betty Crocker :)

First of all, this post is all about the little stuff happening in my life. I want to acknowledge it right now because I believe that small things really matter at the end …..
One of my childhoods sweetest memories are of my mom’s freshly baked cakes ….. the endless waiting to get a chance to lick off the leftover batter and cling onto it until I nearly clean the vessel sparkling neat .
I am sure we all have had our share of such exuberance.
My mom and dad would run around the house to get these ingredients together, alternate to whip up the cake and call out for the ingredients one by one like a doctor asking for the instruments during surgery. I would just look up into the oven and witness the creation of a perfect circle of love called CAKE!!!!
( I just realized I never took a picture of mama’s cake…… DANG!!!!! )
I always truly-madly-deeply wanted to follow the tradition of cake baking but I never seem to find time like my mom. I know I cannot compare myself to her – she is a supermom who would work on shifts as a Nurse and yet made surplus-scrumptious-succulent cakes.
Miss you Mom !

Miss you Mom !

In a shameless tribute to this baking tradition – I thought a good help will not be a sin this Easter. So I chose the Betty Crocker Chocolate Fudge Brownie Mix. As promised it didn’t take more than 15 minutes to whip up!!
Work - In - Progress

Work – In – Progress

While I was waiting for my husband from work, all I did was add a little extra bit of my touch in this brownie ( does aesthetic beautification count ? ) and I knew I could make a perfect Easter for me and my sweet-toothed better-half  😉
The rest of the evening ended with a pleasant chat with my folks, a wonderful time out with my husband and ended perfectly with a healthier choice of food –
Poached Shrimps - ripe mango salad

I know no matter how much or how little I did this Easter – memories are always in the making…
