The obsession with chocolate continues! Whilst doing some research and looking for some new recipes i was amazed by how many different variations, types and percentages there are out there when it comes to chocolate. It therefore only seems fair to pay homage to the many different forms of chocolate available to us. White chocolate has always been a favourite of mine and so I’m dedicating today to white chocolate and Raspberry cookies. Enjoy!
The tragic events currently taking place in Japan have for some reason really struck a chord with me. This is a beautiful country and they are facing untold destruction and danger, if you want to do anything to help please donate. It will only take a few minutes and your money will hopefully help restore lives, you can donate here at the red cross x x x
As I said before big changes are afoot, this blog is now focusing on soothing the soul with food by focusing on specific ingredients or events to create simple and effective recipes that everyone can make, this will be intermittently interjected with a bit of light commentary on design and style (lets face it I’m no expert!). So to continue what soothes the soul more than Chocolate? The big C word may make some people quiver and shake; the thought of ingesting that many calories can be a menacing one. However life is about moderation, don’t eat the entire contents of your chocolate box and you won’t feel so bad (and it will last longer so everyone is a winner!) In short what I am trying to say is that the first chapter of this journey will be dedicated to everyone’s favourite frenemy; CHOCOLATE. Truffles, cookies, cakes, anything containing chocolate that takes my fancy will be tried and tested. Now to answer the question that has probably been plaguing you; Why on earth is this post headed up with a picture of (some sumptuous) Chilli? well because I made my chilli with chocolate!
This last week there has been a noticeable absence from this blog, I have spent the time thinking, plotting and planning (God help anyone caught up in this panful process) Having started blogging I can’t deny that I love writing but I feel like the blog was lacking some direction, and so I decided to remedy this and go in a slightly different direction. Originally this blog was meant to be about life and style, and to a certain extent it will be but I have decided to dedicate this blog to something the things that keep me inspired and keep my mind from going in dangerous directions; Food and Design!
I want to blog about a journey of learning and discovery, it will be an experiement in creating content that will line your stomachs and soothe the soul. This is an exciting project and I’m excited to share how it goes with you.
Bright: Whilst the colder weather is still lingering around London, its refreshing to see that people are using colour on their wardrobe choices.
Design: Lately I’ve been contemplating my future alot, one of the most exciting parts of this for me will be the time when I can afford to buy somewhere of my own. A place to put your own stamp on is the dream, but until then the website Apartment Therapy is the perfect place for me to indulge my interior design fantasy until I can make it a reality. Above are a few of my favourite shots.
