Eggless Brownies – Bridal Shower for Nithya of 4th Sense Cooking

The days between engagement and marriage are always special. Bride wears a new look as soon as the wedding is announced. Her cheek resembles a rosy apple most of the times from all the teasing from her family and friends. And she blushes to the fullest dreaming about the man of her life. Skyrocketing telephone bills and sleepless nights indicate that the bride and the groom are spending some quality time to know each other.This is what happened between V and me. Though we stayed thousands of miles apart until 10 days before the wedding, we spent hours talking to each other over phone and skype. Thank god there was something like VOIP. Otherwise we would have ended up paying the entire paycheck on our telephone bills :D Then the day came and V tied the nuptial knot. Wearing the Mangal sutra (holy thread), toe ring and vermilion made me a complete woman. It was a dream come true and I realized that marriages are indeed made in heaven. In next few weeks, one of the most talented blogger is getting married. She is none other than Nithya of 4th Sense Cooking. She surprises me every time I land in her blog with her creativity and eye candy photographs. When Anamika wrote to me about hosting a virtual bridal shower I immediately agreed. What is more special than cooking her favorite food from her own blog. I chose Eggless Brownies to delight her virtually. Though I am late for the party I believe Nithi will love these eggless brownies made specially for her with lotsa love. Wishing you a very happy married life Nithi. May your marriage be filled with all the right ingredients: a heap of love, a dash of humor, a touch of romance, and a spoonful of understanding. May your joy last forever.
