Dear viewers,

I had put a question in my blog ,Should sweet be eaten before food or after? Dentists advise that sweet should be consumed before food .

Every time you eat or drink anything sugary, your teeth are under acid attack for up to one hour. So it is important to keep sugary foods only to mealtimes, limiting the amount of time your mouth is at risk.

But we like to have desserts after food only. With out a dessert the meal is not complete ,is it not? That too on important day like today for my young viewers,on "Valentine Day" how can a feast go with out a dessert to be followed?

Today I am posting another dessert recipe, 'chocolate Souffle. '
