huge fan of this work by fabio ongatara design for baker d. chirico.
be sure to stop by the artisan bakery next time you’re in melbourne.
so it’s now been a whole six weeks since quitting sugar and the chocolate cravings have been, up until now, kept safely at bay.
then thanks to garance i spent a full hour trying to find an online store that will deliver some blocks of chocolatey goodness by the mast brothers to my address in australia. the thought of the almond and sea salt combination had me dribbling on my keyboard.
is the idea of spending $50 + shipping on 5 blocks of chocolate completely crazy? a craving taken too far? sadly i can’t see it through as no one ships outside of the united states. *tears*
planning to make this to serve with a fresh tomato salad, crusty bread and a few wedges of cheese for brunch with friends tomorrow.
1. tran-seasonal dressing on carolines mode. love the sweater and wang bag. and the combination of kate moss’s poppy dress with biker boots and blue socks.
4. quitting smoking has been hard. it’s been replaced by cheese and wine and all manner of delicious foods and as a result my clothes are feeling very snug at the moment. so today i’m starting a *diet*. argh. just clean salads and fruit with plenty of swimming and yoga until the kilos have melted away.
using a combination of this recipe, this recipe and with a few modifications, these cinnamon raisin bagels turned out really well! the process is very labour-intensive so i have to admit it’s far easier to go and buy some from the shops. the taste (and subsequent wheat-induced stomach ache) was definitely worth it…
this week, the housemates get a baker & spice chocolate marble cake. just in time for a) someone’s exams, b) someone’s promotion and c) someone’s stressful day(s) at work dealing with useless phone company “customer service” teams. tuck in, team!
