Let’s play something like “Baby It’s Cold Outside” and curl up with fuzzy socks on our feets under a blanket, after all- it is December! If you haven’t figured it out already, I love December. Besides the fact that it is my birthday month, I love the wintery holiday mood that comes with it. Enjoying a white Christmas is something that is on my bucket list, but till I get to realize that dream, I will wear fuzzy socks, listen to Christmas songs, maybe light a candle or two and make hot chocolate and curl up in bed.

Talking about hot chocolate, I have been trying to make it properly at home for a few years now, but to no avail. But finally, this year, with the help of my parents, I found a right recipe. If you are wondering what is so hard about making it, let me tell you another little truth about myself. I like making things, but I hate going out to buy stuff for it. Most of my cooking is done with things I have readily available. So whenever I have had to make hot chocolate, I didn’t have corn starch on hand or fresh cream or even coconut cream, like many recipes called for. But finally, I made a recipe with things I had readily at my disposal and I am quite proud to say that it turned out really really well.
