After a week of bed rest & cough lozenges, I feel like it's been forever since I was last in the kitchen -- & so, to ease back into it, I've found a perfectly delicious syrup found at QUITOKEETO that can be used in a myriad of ways & sounds positively delectable!
... & I've been in a strangely nautical, adventurous mood this week? Steering away from the usual pastels & neutrals & lace & sparkles & opting instead for stripes & navy & touches of red here & there, & of course, when I happened upon this absolutely darling invitation suite, it fitted with my mood too perfectly for words!
The weekend is so close I can almost touch it & I'm hoping this little pocket of sunshine we've been experiencing will decide to stay for just a little while longer. . .
I hope the rest of your week is positively beautiful - -
Winter has well & truly arrived
& nothing warms you on a cold night quite like a delectably rich hot
chocolate. Below, my very favourite recipe from Donna Hay :
+ 200g good-quality dark chocolate, chopped
+ 200g good-quality milk chocolate, chopped
+ 4 vanilla beans, split
+ 1⅓ cups (330ml) single (pouring) cream
+ 1 cup (250ml) milk
+ marshmallows and cocoa, to serve
Divide the chocolate and vanilla beans between 4 glasses. Place the
cream and milk in a saucepan over low heat and simmer for 2–3 minutes
or until warmed through. Pour over the chopped chocolate, stirring until
the chocolate is dissolved. Top with marshmallows and dust with cocoa
