Nothing beats waking up on a cold Winter's morning to a soothing cup of tea. It's the perfect way to start my day.
I've never met a Chai I didn't like. The folks at T2 sent me their brilliantly designed Chai Kit recently and all I've been drinking ever since is Chai.
The best part about Chai is that you can select the mixture of herbs and spices to suit your taste. I love this hands on approach to brewing your own perfect cup of tea.
When I cook, I look forward to what the final dish will look like rather than what it tastes like. Isn't that kind of ridiculous?! Luckily, I always follow recipes without skipping steps so there's little that can go wrong with the taste, right?
Mum stopped by for a visit yesterday and brought over a bag full of fresh, ripe figs.
I've never had fresh figs before. It's a strange fruit. It's sweet like a plum but has a peculiar aftertaste that needs getting use to. Well, for me anyway. I've always been a fussy eater.
I made myself a simple sandwich with fresh fig, cream cheese and drizzled copious amount of Maya Sunny honey on it. Yum, yum, YUM!!
No one was around to by my hand model today. And Paddy was too busy sleeping to be of any assistance.
I love cooking with raw ingredients. Plus, they are so darn photogenic, aren't they? I made this for dinner last night. So incredibly easy to prepare and so darn delicious too!
Simple salad for lunch. Made and devoured by me.
I love the afternoon light the streams through our dining area at this time of the day.
That time in the afternoon. Brewing tea for one. My new favourite is the Prince Vladimir by Kusmi Tea.
Is there anything that the French can't perfect?!
...a dash of color and a good cup of coffee.
It's been 4 months and counting. Nespresso, how did I ever live without you. Quick and easy coffee never tasted so good at home.
