How much ever old we are, I guess a part of us always stays young. And I believe its true to a very large extent in my case.
There was a Barbie movie playing in the television yesterday, and I got so lost in it that I even forgot to prepare dinner.
Fantasy, Magic, True love and First kiss – something which every girl in teens dreams of. And some like me still dream about. These movies are unusual, the love stories are offbeat, and the storylines are far from reality. But still there is some magic in them.
My teens were also nourished by similar type of romantic Novels. Especially those by Mills and Boons. The hero in these books is tall, dark, handsome, very rich and well mannered. Falls in love with heroine- love at first sight. And there is always happy ending – they lived happily ever after!
I will get in to the reality later. Lets stay in this other world for sometime and enjoy this fabulous dessert perfect for romantic evenings.

Mom’s Notes :
Do not worry if you dont have vanilla yougurt. Instead use normal yougurt and add 50 gms extra sugar(increase or decrease according to your taste.
If you do not want to unmould, set the dessert in some pretty glasses with the raspberry layer on the pannacota.
When Raspberries are not available try this with any other berries. It will taste absolutely delicious.
