saffron is like a very rare name and even funny, the taste and smell is nice, pretty good to change a dish form average to special, son't you think that? I am glad of seeing very good recipes including it!

I always willing to try something new, as a sweet made with saffron, that sounds really interesting and maybe weird, but for the people in the India must be delicious, and I noted that the recipe is very easy to prepare since you just have to use the microwave and stir?
