Delicious News!


Yesterday the postman came along and surprised me! No, not because I was in my bathrobe and had a towel wrapped around my head, but because he had a lovely package for me- all the way from Italy! When I opened the bag, a cloud of chocolate aroma immediately jumped out at me. Inside were three beautifully wrapped bars of Modica chocolate! Never mind the fact that I had just eaten breakfast- I ripped off one of the wrappers and immediately devoured a square!

I just want to take this opportunity to once again express my thanks to my friend Beatriz for filling me in on Nutella Day. I wouldn’t have known about this otherwise! And of course to Michelle and Sara for organizing this! The chocolate is almost gone, girls!

Also some lovely news- my Nutty Nutella Buns were recently featured in Desserts Magazine! I was very honored and proud to see them there and I hope to contribute more recipes to the magazine in the near future. Have a look through their mouth-watering digital magazine for lots of delicious inspiration and don’t forget to check out my recipe on page 14 and 15!

Glad you received the package and are enjoying the chocolate. They are pretty particular (I wrote about them on my blog) but good!

I looked at Desserts magazine, and your recipe looks at home. Your picture is excellent, and from experience, the buns are addictive! I haven't tried Modica chocolate yet, I guess I better hurry...
Felicitaciones de nuevo.
