During one of the eatwith dinner parties I hosted last year we met an Australian couple from Melbourne and we immediately hit it off. They invited us over for dinner at the apartment they were renting during their stay in Paris, and let me tell you, we were spoiled! I still remember the cured salmon we had as an entrée. The thing is, Nathan, is a chef so off course his food is beautiful and tasty.
We stayed in touch during the year and were very happy to learn they were coming back to Paris for almost three weeks! We invited them over to our house for dinner one evening so we could properly catch up and they could see our new home. We had the most fun evening!!

Wow. As I sit and write this post it dawned on me that I hadn’t done this in a while. The truth is it’s been crazy crazy here for some time; I got married and I moved all in the same week. Needless to say that I lived in chaos for the better part of the last three months. At the beginning we were nor here or there; we were sleeping in one place but all our things were somewhere else, and then it became the box party.
For a while there getting a hold of my kitchen tools, or being able to photograph anything was really something I could only dream of. And off course we had some problems with the internet (welcome to France!), which made updating the blog impossible. Only just now I have functioning internet service, I actually know where my stuff and we got some of the furniture which made it possible to organize, put a little order and slowly emerge from chaos.

A few weeks back I made Easter Cake, and I made too much… I kind of always tend to go in that direction. Exaggeration could be my middle name. At the time I didn’t know what to do with all that cake so I wrapped it in plastic -a lot of it- and stored it in the freezer.
Last week I decided to go through my freezer and organize it a bit; we are moving to new home soon so I have to use everything that’s in there before we do so. That’s when I came across the beautifully wrapped Easter cake. When I saw it I knew I had to make something of it, just wasn’t sure what exactly. So I put it back in the freezer and went about my day.
