Yes it’s me..! After almost a month, I'm back again. I can't believe it's been so long without blogging. Time flies, especially when all the things going on around you are good events.
So, three very important things have happened this past month;
- S and I, finally, bought a house..!
- I changed my job
- I cut my hair
Okay, perhaps the last one isn’t so relevant, at least for me anyway. However it was for S, who didn’t know I was planning to cut my hair 8 inches until I got home saying: surpriseee! you got a new girlfriend!! The truth is I sent him a selfie picture when I walked outside the hairdresser so it would be a bit less of a shock for him.
The new house was an absolute joyous moment for both of us, after visiting so many houses over the last four months, a few nearly being the one, but most of them a big disappointment, we finally found our home. It’s a new development, near to where we live now, and we are expecting it to be finished and ready for us by October.
Being a new house, we had complete freedom to choose the materials we desired in all the rooms, and that is what we have been up to all this month - trying to agree what kitchen colour and handles to have, carpets, tiles etc. I have felt pure happiness, being in the sales office, surrounded by hundreds of tiles, wooden floor, kitchen doors, carpets.., my happiness was S’s hell though ! However, after too many days to count choosing materials, and choosing again a few more times, we did it. S and I, surprisingly, agreed on all finishings (well I made him agree with all that I wanted hehe!).
So, now my head is full of nothing but what will be my new beautiful kitchen and where I do one of the things that makes me so very happy - cooking !
As you see, I had lots of things to celebrate this April and what better way to do it than with food, don’t you think?
I would have loved to have sent one of these raspberry chocolate spoons to every one of you! There were purely tempting and sweetly fun. Oh, and probably it’s the easiest and quickest recipe you can find on this blog. All what you need is a mini spoons mould, a couple of bars of dark chocolate and the most succulent raspberries.
When eating them, we found out every one of us had a different way of doing it; while ones ate in just three bites , others liked licking them slowly, and one nibbled away thin layers with their teeth like a rabbit eating a carrot - so funnily, I compared it to the different ways you might eat an Oreo, such a controversial topic to mention on the internet.
What about you? How would you eat these raspberry chocolate spoons?

- Melt the chocolate in a heatproof glass bowl over a saucepan of simmering water to create a double boiler effect. Stir ocassionaly.
- Place the spoons mould on a small plate. Remove the melted chocolate from the heat and pour in to mini spoons mould gently.
- Finish off by putting a raspberry on top of every spoon, then transfer to the fridge at least 2 hours or overnight.
- When they are ready to serve, remove every spoon from the mould very gently so they don’t break. Enjoy!
