Saturdays that are meant for guest posts just keep coming in such a fast pace!!!! By the time I fix up one guest post and start working on the next, my hands and legs shiver at the thought whether I would be able to put up a proper introduction to each guest post I receive. It feels so nice that my “Be My Guest” section has attracted some really nice bloggers, as well as the bloggers who I absolutely adore have so wholeheartedly come and become a part of this series… 🙂
One morning, I received an email from Singapore. She had seen my guest post at Rekha’s space and then came up-to my blog. She noticed that I had quite a bit of guest posts and just decided to drop in an email. That is how I got introduced to Megha, who blogs at Me In Blog Land. Hers is not an exclusive cookery blog, but what I loved is that she mended all her passions beautifully at one single space. She has a lovely style of writing, which is very simple and just flows. I guess if you read the post below of hers and hop on to her blog as well, you would agree to me. I am so happy that she came by and asked me if she could guest post, and see what she got for me!
Megha mailed me with a choice, which I left to her, but then wanting to do justice to my blog name, she chose these delectable looking gooey bars… A bit of work in there but just look at the end result. I wish screens were not only meant for staring at pictures, but if you could actually put your hand in and just grab a peice! Let’s move on what my guest for the day has to say…
She replied almost immediately and was very nice about the whole thing. Picking what to make for someone else’s blog took longer than I thought it would. I had with me one sweet and one savoury dish so I ultimately sent her this dessert (no prizes for guessing why!) that you see here.
During a recent visit, my sister gifted me with a recipe book from Marks & Spencer titled My Little Afternoon Tea Book. I flipped through the pages and caught sight of the recipe for Chocolate Raspberry Marshmallow Bars. I was drawn to the lovely photos and made a mental note to try it. I still consider myself a novice baker so I was wondering if it would turn out just like in the book but once I did, my fears were somewhat allayed. Initially, I was a bit hesitant about sending this recipe to Rafeeda because marshmallows usually contain gelatin but I discovered that nowadays you easily get either halal certified brands and brands that are suitable for vegetarians. This is an interesting and versatile dessert with different layers of flavours and textures. You can make in advance for parties, potlucks or lunch boxes. It has chocolate, jam and marshmallows….what’s not to love!
