Yeah…I’m a guest blogger today! I was thrilled when Biren invited me to be her first guest blogger….wow! She said I can take my time to write it as she will still reserve me to be her first guest blogger…….what an honour! But of course I won’t keep her waiting too long. I was excited to write for her blog.

Biren is an amazing food blogger and friend. She is another lovely friend that I met through blogging. She is a very friendly lady and even though I have just known her for a short time, it looks like I have known her for a long time. Her zeal and excitement in life has always been an inspiration. She has a lovely blog, Roti n Rice, which is about 5 months old and is full of awesome home cooking and bakes.

Biren wrote a beautiful Mother’s Day guest post for me recently. It’s Mother’s Day Happy Healthy Brunch. It was very impressive and delicious that I feel like eating it everyday. For those who love okra like me, she has 2 lovely posts for that, Okra Salad and Okra and Chickpea Stew.

Well, after much thought, I think dessert is what I would do for the guest post. Desserts always speak of celebration and happiness to me. DESSERTS spelt backward is STRESSED. So I believe that desserts are great stress busters. Recently I have learned how to make chocolate swiss rolls. Oh….what joy! I made raspberry coulis, or sauce, to go with it. Instead of thick chocolate swiss rolls, I made them thin and so they look cute and pretty when cut into rings. They are very delicious served with raspberry coulis.

I love swiss roll too…it’s very satisfying everytime I managed to roll up a swiss roll without breaking it to pieces! Yours really do look cute… it’ll be a challenge to roll up such a thin piece of cake. Hopping over to Biren’s now…
