for teaching me to unlearn,
for the joys and tears of happiness,
for a myriad of new relationships which helped me grow,
for a chance to make a change or two,
for love and kindness, humility and pride,
for new books and new lines,
for amazing skylines and the reminder that the Sun always shines, even when it is not visible to the eye
French chocolatier spoil your senses with the (perhaps) finest chocolate truffles.
It takes a Moldovan to take the best out of their recipe, add a bit of nonconformism and a personal touch, with my appologize to the French touch 🙂
Best Summer truffles recipe:
200 g finest chocolate (your favourite; mine is Valrhona), melted
125 g almonds
200 g pitted dates
2 spoons agave syrup (or a sweetener of your choice)
2 fine apricots (1/2 cup of orange juice in the original recipe)
All rolled through Cacao, nutmeg, cinnamon or other flavours you love.
Enjoy the golden taste!
to all who celebrate it today! Love and harmony, peace and prosperity, to all!
For me, Easter is about my grandmother, Maria, and the family traditions she relentlessly kept in most adversarial times she lived in. She put faith and gratitude in every bread she baked, every pie she spoiled us with.
I bake for Easter and paint eggs, as she did, and I know she is smiling , from a distant bright star that is her home now.
For rainy days transformed into sunny days by the warmth and dedication of my wonderful colleagues and friends.
Lunch with a beautiful view and in great company.
Another record of a super efficient steering committee meeting.
A dream come true: to celebrate a dear colleague’s birthday while on mission. The cake and Khachapuri tasted very special. Thank you, dear!
A rooftop team dinner and the new fun things we learned about eachother. Plus, that together we have 200 years of life wisdom. No kidding with such a team!
A new discovery – “The Golden Book of Georgian sport”.
The fun of seeing Georgian customs officials faces when they ask me what’s in the Entree cup. These cookies are my husband’s favourites, so i “smugle” them ocasionally.
I know an adult, looking at me in the mirror, who would benefit from some of these 🙂
