Rhubarb crumble. 

Just a quickie to assure you that I'm alive and well. I'm just recharging my batteries a bit since the past week has really burned me out. Long hours of playing Professor Layton and the Last Spectre can really do that to you, ya know? 

In all seriousness, I've been really busy with work and just catching up with friends here and there. I'm also trying to spend more time with my husband now that he's a bit free because of winter break. My baby (le blog) turned one yesterday, and I kinda forgot about it because I was ballz-tired and just plonked on my bed and hibernated. Don't worry though, I am planning on some festivities and surprises soon for the anniversary and my upcoming birthday! (hint, hint: Pressies, everyone, PRESSIES!

But for now, I am leaving you with these delicious morsels of delights (from quite a while back).

I was quite amused with the size of this spoon. I'm holding it up to my face for comparison.
Granted I have a HUGE head, the spoon is still big.
Black Forest Cake Coffee. For Bella, of course.
A HUGE brownie surprise. Complete with whipped cream, homemade vanilla ice cream,
hot fudge, nuts, and a cherry on top!
Happy New Year, everyone!

  5. Hi Laura!!! I feel like I've been away from blogland forever too -- I'm so glad you took a much-needed break! Matt and I just ate a rhubarb crumble here in Edinburgh and yours looks much much better. The Brits do better with their fruitcake and booze desserts ;)
