These Are The Double Chocolate Muffins Of Your Dreams 🍫

These muffins look and taste so perfect, it almost feels like a scam. When I took them out of the oven they were the spitting image of the kind of muffins you see in the window of a bakery – big, wholesome, hearty. I half expected them to taste rotten, because there’s just no way…

Bookish Pet Peeves

Haaaaapppyyyy Monday, y’all! Today has been quite a good day. Nowadays, the biggest problem I have is not knowing what to do with all my free time. I am fully aware that this is a problem many people would love to have – trust me, I know. I was one of those people for the…

3 Reasons Why Riverdale Is, Quite Simply, The Best Show Ever.

1. Cole Sprouse. 2. Cheryl. 3. Cole Sprouse. 4. Cole Sprouse. Kiddinggggg XD (not really). Today, my friends, it’s going to be all about Riverdale. Yesterday I checked to see if a new episode had been recorded last Thursday, and it hadn’t, which means a two week gap between episodes! HOW WILL I SURVIVE?! I’ll…

Summer Fashion Shopping List 👗

No, I don’t mean my grocery list – I mean a list of all the specific clothes/shoes/accessories I need to buy before summer ends. Because although I LOVE just aimlessly trying on things for no reason, I love having a plan even more. And I need to get these things out of my cart, and into…

Best Moments of Sandhya Menon’s When Dimple Met Rishi 🧡

Hola, amigos! I’m going to Chili’s later this afternoon. Tacos make me feel Spanish^ (or are they Mexican?) Even though every day is a Friday for me, I’m still pretty stoked that it’s here again. Mainly because there were only two of my friends left whose exams hadn’t ended, and today is their last paper,…

The 3 Alternate Meanings Of The Laughing/Crying Emoji 😂

Anyone who says that this emoji is not, at any given point, present in at least the first row of their ‘frequently used’ emojis (if not at the number one spot) – is simply lying. I think I can confidently say on behalf of every person ever, that they use this emoji more often than they…

One Year Blogiversary Surprise 🎉 !

Yup – as of 8th April 2018, The Pastry Poet has been around for exactly ONE YEAR! Woooooohoooooo! It’s so difficult to believe that 365 days have already flown by since my first post on this page. I remember feeling so unsure and nervous about it, wondering whether people will actually read what I have…

ThePastryPoet’s Original Chocolate Chip Pancakes 🥞

I’ve really done it this time. That’s the exact thing I said when I flipped the first of these pancakes, and watched them puff up into the fluffiest, wonderfulest things I’d ever seen. Out of the three original recipes I’ve come up with (check out my chocolate tart and vegan dark chocolate frosting here), I’m…

A Heavily R5 – Influenced Summer Playlist 🤩

I saw a comment on one of R5’s videos yesterday, and it read ‘I’ve had a crush on Ross Lynch since Austin And Ally season 1’. Girl, that makes two of us. Happy Saturday fwends. I’m chilling with an ice cold glass of Coke (oh, the FIZZ😭💜), and the blow from the cooler is right…

March Reading Wrap Up

You would crack up if you could see me right now. I’ve been swimming for only three days, and we go at 8:30am, when there’s still plenty of sunshine, but it’s at the weakest it can get during the day. And still, when I got home yesterday, my mom says ‘What’s wrong with your face?!?!?’ I’m…

A Very Random List of Very Random Facts About Me 🤪

The sun’s going to explode. At least that’s what it feels like, because IT IS INSANELY HOT OVER HERE. Pune is taking summer way too seriously this year – I can’t afford to drink this much cold Coke and eat this much ice cream. I’m not gonna be able to fit into any of my…
