This pistachios lime cake, slightly different cake from the regular ones is not only scrumptious and nutty but the addition of lime zest and lavender glaze teleports it to a next level of indulgence. The glaze is optional because the naked pistachios lime cake tastes so good in itself. I reckon you will love every crumb of the cake.
This is that time of the year when we are in our best of festive moods and some of us take stock of how the year that passed us by went. I often pause to think & despite the holiday rush to stock up and wrap presents and put up the lights & remembering to write up the cards, I try and slow down. Every year, every moment of it brings with it a sweet present, a memory that somehow gets etched in the many recesses of our infinite brain.
2016 for me was a potpourri of emotions, with the rebirth of my blog, toying between a few career options and finally recognising my creative passion that I have often ignored or had stopped to believe in with excuses and layers of blankets piled up over what was once simply pure bliss. I was fortunate enough to score a few clients to boost my styling and photography skills. Opening of an unknown trail and seeking confidence in one self, conceiving and delivering the thought of an eBook, popular among unknown readers in the blogosphere, all that gamut of opportunities has certainly kept me well on my toes.
Well it is finally time to take a break. Although I officially took a break in the midst of the busy last quarter to be with my parents. They needed me at this time of the year. The break was joyous but at the same time nerve wreaking seeing your beloved dad going through a massive surgical procedure and with the hope to get a new life soon.
The sheer pleasure of finding them happy and making them comfortable was truly my blessings or good karma of my previous birth.
Hmm!! Let me not sound like a drag…
Few more days to go and embrace the beginning of another new year with new promises and new trail. Hopefully I have played my cards well and hope not be smitten off with untold surprises.
Just before I took a break I had baked a scrumptious pistachios lime cake with a lavender glaze. My Instagram followers would be able revive the thoughts.
The leftover shelled pistachios were milled and baked giving me the thumbs up for my sweet tooth
