I’m just under two months away from moving to Northern Ireland and I’m feeling the love and romance knowing I’ll be reunited with my darling soon. And because of my big move I’ve been running more than ever to get ready to hit the pavement over there and feel more confident and strong!
I have no fond memories of nutella growing up, we weren’t allowed to eat it. But hazelnut has always screamed indulgence to me, it was always in the richest of flavours and recipes.
I hope no matter what you make is filled with lots of love, and whoever receives it, gives you that smile that reminds you why Valentines day is beautiful.
To bring myself back to reality I decided to share these super easy wee raw chocolates, that are insanely addictive. I have a very loving relationship with cacao butter. It is one of my absolute favourite ingredients to work with. It’s full of healthy fats, antioxidants and nutrients and it doesn’t hurt that you can rub the excess between your hands to warm up and use as an amazing moisturizer! And, you get to smell like chocolate;)
As you may have figured out already I am more of an overcast and cool sort of girl so this over 30 weather every day has been a bit more than hard.But, it does have its perks. Like frozen raw treats that totally make this blistering sun a little bit more worth it. And let me tell you, these bars are super easy, quick and satisfying for when you need something cold. I even tucked some extra greens in there!
Happy Mothers Day…
Be warned, these were devoured very quickly.
It’s funny how we could have so easily not met, had our paths been slightly different. I am so lucky we did though. Every day is a celebration with him but I love having some extra special ones. So I needed a nice treat to have after dinner tonight and cake is generally what I think of. This is my new favourite dessert, moist, dense, and not too sweet. It’s right up my ally. And beet in anything is going to put a smile on most peoples faces.
My favourite way to make things a bit more luscious is adding chopped chocolate. And what better one to use than Giddy Yoyo’s raspberry bar for these beauties. 72% dark chocolate and alluring to even look at, chopped up and tucked inside and sprinkled on top makes for dreamy desserts. I’m a little bit obsessed with this bar, and it’s what really inspired me to make these rolls so I could eat it more.
I am bubbling with excitement for the goals I want to set this year. After taking a wee break from this over the holidays and honestly being as lazy as possible, its more than ever motivated me to get shit done. I feel really good about 2018 for some reason, like anything is possible.
