Firenze / Tuscany

A few weeks ago I flew to Florence for a bloggers retreat organized by EaTravel (soon more about that). Before the van picked us up later that day I had some time to kill. Lucky me! It meant exploring the city all by myself - wandering through the small streets, staring at the Duomo, having a cappuccino with a cornetto, and buying shortly after a gelato (salted caramel of course), walking across Ponte Vecchio, eating fresh burrata cheese with prosciutto, and sipping red wine. Not a bad way to spend an afternoon, I guess.

Chocolate chip cookies / Mast Brothers

When you turned to me and smiled, it took my breath away
And I have never had such a feeling
Such a feeling of complete and utter love, as I do tonight

 

I'm very much into classics at the moment. Evergreens. Chris de Burgh's Lady in Red, black heels, minimal silver jewelry, lemon cake with a thin layer of frosting, MAST Brothers' Chocolate Chip Cookies. Maybe it's because the seasons are in transition. It doesn't feel like spring yet, though it also seems like winter is slowly leaving us. And for once, I'm fine with it. Because I will always have these beauties by my side. Find the recipe here. Just a small warning: they are heavenly and you will eat them all at once. 

Enjoy.
