Nelson the great (pooper)! Kaemon the virtuous(o)!

It seems we struck it lucky again with a baby that's sweet and happy all the time! However, there's no rest for any mother, so it's not as if I'm posh spice or anything.

Ode to the slice

The slice is the new leggings-under-skirt (or whatever current fad of the season). I don't know the true definition of a slice, but for me it's a hybrid of all the good features of baked yummies- cakes, cheesecake, biscuits, puddings, the list goes on on on- in a reduced format to enjoy at any moment of the day (desserts are often too filling after a meal). Take for example this apricot crumble slice: crumbly topping like an apple crumble, squishy filling like a jammy pudding and crunchy biscuit bottom. But flat and easy to stuff down in between lunch and dinner!!!!

Erik and Simone

Yes it's wedding season (already the 4th this year!)! Our good friends tied the knot in Nijmegen, a beautiful church service and a reception on a gorgeous summer's day. The best things were seeing the groom entering the church with a huge grin on his face and as the bride entered, the ladies in the congregation begin to cry! That's what weddings are all about... I love them!!!
