Wow. Just wow.
What an amazing two weeks it’s been. The first issue of my magazine has been so well received and I’m very grateful to everyone for all the great feedback so far, and to all those that commented, re-blogged, re-tweeted and posted a link of the magazine to their facebook pages - it really means so much to me and I’m truly touched. I know many of you have requested print copies of the magazine, but these can be quite expensive, so I'm currently looking into more affordable options. Watch this space for more.
To all those that did read the magazine, I’d really appreciate if you could take this quick anonymous survey - there are only 7 questions, you can answer as few or as many as you like and it shouldn’t take more than 1 minute in total. Of course the more detail you can give the better, as your answers will help me improve and shape the next issue. Thank you so much!
Also, a quick reminder that all the giveaways end this Friday, the 15th of July, so you still have a chance to enter by leaving a comment on my last blog post.
I’ve been eating and baking with apricots non-stop for the past few weeks, I can’t seem to get enough of them, especially as they’re one of those summer fruits that disappear from the markets far too quickly.
One of the desserts I’ve made here is almost like an apricot fool, and it’s so simple to make, it doesn’t even require a recipe: just pour some custard into a glass, sprinkle with chopped apricots, add a tablespoon of whipped vanilla cream, sprinkle with more apricots and drizzle with honey. Quick. Fresh. Simple.
The other recipe is also very easy, and I’ve used ready rolled puff pastry for it, because let’s face it, who wants to spend hours making puff pastry from scratch in the middle of summer, when we can all be enjoying the great outdoors? These apricot puffs are so quick and easy to make, and the combination of apricots with marzipan and pistachios is to die for.
I also recently discovered Instagram (I know, I'm so slow with these things) and I thought I’d share some of the photos I’ve taken here with you (see below). If you’re on Instagram too, find me there (username: mowiekay) - I’d love to see your photos!
