Ricotta Coconut Cake {glutenfree}

Ricotta Coconut Cake {glutenfree}

I gave in to the flow of it all. I let myself be led by what happens in my day rather than striving for something that inevitably led to me being frustrated. And, allowing the space to come to me.

It is difficult, because, when I get that little window, all I want to do is sit down and have a cup of tea in peace. But instead, that is the time, I can feed myself in a rush, cook something for dinner, do laundry (and that included folding the clothes), get errands done that need relative quiet. After all that is done, I sometimes find time to cook and shoot something for the space. Those moments feel like magic!! Oh! they do, they do! Especially, when the fruit of the labor is cherished for longer than the labor itself lasted.

This cake is one of those wonderful fruits.

Happy New Year!!! WIth the easiest Victoria Sponge Cake ever!!

First, let me start with wishing you all a wonderful and fulfilling year ahead. My wish to you is that this year be full of Life for you - with all its twists and turns - so you may grow stronger, happier and more positive. At the end of 2019, I wish you may look back on the year and say how much better you are then than you were today! For that, I do believe a good dose of all things in the emotional spectrum is needed. In the end, we will remember the happiness and forget the rest as that is indeed survival but there is no happy without the opposite. So, I wish you everything, and a big ladle of joy that will help you live the life of your dreams!

Chocolate Paired For Everyday

Chocolate Paired For Everyday

Often, when the day has been a tad stressful or just full (of cries, of surprise laughs), I steal a moment of peace and self love with a square of chocolate. Nibbling on it and just staring out has been a cherished meditative escape. Add Christmas lights to that, and my harmony is achieved, over and over. Have you noticed, it is really really hard to be annoyed or sad or frustrated when you stare at a cheerily lit Christmas Tree??!

Here I was tasting chocolates and dreaming of how I would spend my day eating them. So, this is my vision of how I could so easily have chocolate from breakfast through goodnight kiss. Fortunately, I still get to do this atleast once a day and I highly recommend that practice, if you are at all, looking to find a way to steal a moment for yourself :)

Giving Thanks, Little Feet and Time to Breathe...

Giving Thanks, Little Feet and Time to Breathe...

This cake is the first I have baked in 3 months! So, I felt I really must post it. And, it also helps that it is super easy to make :).

So, that’s it. I don’t have time to write more. But, do make this cake; because it is well worth relishing a slice or two of, in those stolen moments of peace and self-reflection :). This cake actually get better the next day and keep nicely for 3-4 days simply covered on the counter. This is thanks to the amount of butter and using the almond flour that makes for a richer, moister cake.

Berry Picking... Galettes... and 10 Years...

Berry Picking... Galettes... and 10 Years...

It has been a life changing year! And, really looking back at the the last 10 years when I have been blogging, I am at a loss for words to describe the transformation I have been through. That tonguetied-ness has been a reason for my quiet here. But…. I’ll try…! :)

So, as I was reflecting on 10 years of blogging and trying to figure what that milestone head would read, I realized that it was not about blogging but how one small step into this world, changed my entire life. Not entirely on its own, but like a stone gathering momentum, it set things in motion, it tweaked things in me, opened my eyes to certain qualities in myself and others, met so many interesting people, changed careers….. Starting this blog just created a little path in a new forest and that took to a place that I would never have imagined myself to be in 10 years ago - physically, metaphysically, emotionally, psychologically.
