Its Chinese/Lunar New Years soon. Office in Chinatown = Craziness. I'm not a big fan of crowds, queuing, waiting, or standing up actually. But for one reason, I part the red sea. There it was, with its dark and thick scent of nutty sweetness roasted in black coal pebbles. It's chestnuts. Tis the season of chestnuts! And right beside them are these beautiful green gems. Pistachios. Tis the season of pistachios!
Indeed. Chinese New years bring out the best of snacks. We spend the past month (after christmas and new years) losing the extra pounds to fit in a chinese traditional dress only to gain two-fold of the weight back. Just to be safe, get a bigger Cheong Sam.
The roasted chestnuts didn't make it and i had to keep the pistachios away from the crazy wolves. Hence, whilst dreaming the day I can have a traditional campfire desert, I decided to bake up some s'mores (brownies style), with pistachios of course.
2 x no. of slices of brownies of Graham Crackers / Digestive Biscuits
1. Sandwich each slice of brownie in between 2 biscuits. Serve warm.
Lastly, let's talk about the Liebster award!
Liebster Blog Award
When I visited "To Food With Love", I would never have thought that her blog was a new'ish blog. I mean, look at her fabulous pictures and recipes! Its just impossible that she hasn't published a book or something. Hence, when she nominated me for this award, I was pleasantly surprised. It is an award for newer blogs, or those with less than 200 followers. Just to support and encourage these blogs. Thank you! What a sweet gesture :)
