Favourites of the week


I was going to experiment with chai-flavoured cupcakes this weekend, hence the photo, but ‘unfortunately’ I don’t have time to because I’m too busy celebrating my birthday! I know, what a shame :) I turned the big 22 yesterday and I have the whole weekend filled with food, fun and friends. Yay!

So in this lazy post, I’ll share with you a few of my sweet favourites of the week:

  • Melissa at The Traveler’s Lunchbox has just returned from a trip to Abruzzo, Italy and her recipe for Gelato di Fragola e Balsamico (Strawberry and Balsamic Vinegar Gelato to you and I) is a winner. It’s made with mascarpone cheese, so it will definitely be luscious and creamy. Her photos on the blog are always gorgeous and her foodie/travel stories are wonderful to read. I love her blog!
  • Next is the ultra talented Tartelette. Her unique creations, photos, stories and recipes are always fabulous and her macarons are to die for. As soon as I saw her drool-worthy Snickers Macarons, I knew they were a must on my ‘To Bake’ list. I can’t wait!
  • Lastly, we have the lovely Bea at La Tartine Gourmande. Every foodie/blog reader knows about her and she is a food stylist/photographer extraordinaire. Her photos are simply beautiful and I only wish I had some of her creativity and talent. Her Apple Juice Sabayon looked absolutely amazing and I am looking forward to summer when I can make this with the season’s best berries.

Have a great weekend everyone and I’ll be back in the kitchen again next week :)
