Cooking however has been (of course), and I have been going through such a lovely experimental time in the kitchen making home made ice cream, fresh breads and pastries. Our whole house has been filled with such lovely smells and it wont be bizarre for me to be casually eating quail on a wednesday night for dinner with a good glass of wine.
Something lately has changed, where all the recipes that used to intimidate me a little now seem so logical and simple. Thats not to say everything works out perfectly, but complicated recipes no longer seem scary.
Im at a little bit of a loss for words....all I can tell you is everything is splendid. I hope you're feeling the same.
Heres a super simple ice cream recipe to get you inspired.
