I adore Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World, and it was spectactulalry worth the wait for Amazon France to get me my little copy (I do love how very little it is.....super cute format).
Kevin and I hiked over to our friend Jimmy's house yesterday to share in the sunshiney goodness of Sunday brunch. The weather couldn't have been better for Car Free Day in Brussels. This yearly abandoning of all things auto is a dynamite, if under-executed, plan. There were little and big people everywhere! Bikes, feet, blades, horses (!) and public transit. A lovely way to see Brussels, which is usually a car soaked parking nightmare.
The weekend, despite the busybeeness, gave me the much desired time to play in the kitchen. Although nothing worth of a Domesetic Goddess award, I did make....
Rhubarb & Strawberry Crumble for Kevin
VCTOTW Rosewater Cupcakes (minus the pistachios)
my very first ever Buttercream Frosting
A big pot of Root Veg Soup
I am getting really excited about my upcoming trip home to Canada, where, amoungst otherthings, I will be trying on wedding dresses with my mom!!! I can't wait. We are anxious to get our invites in the mail....these fabulous little things are recyclable, and come embedded with their own seed packets for easy backyard planting!!!
