Happy Easter Weekend!

Hope you all have a wonderful Easter weekend and treat yourself to some chocolate bunnies;)

Here's an incredibly awesome environmental art project. Dutch artist Henk Hofstra's "Art-Eggcident" was held in May 2008 in Leeuwarden, a city in the north of the Netherlands.
It is too wonderfully creative not to share.


Have a very Happy Easter and Passover! xx

Put the Kettle On!

...I'm coming home. In British homes, it is customary good manners for a host to offer tea to guests soon after their arrival.
I'm always hearing the health benefits of tea (green tea) and probably should switch to it, however I love my coffee. Having said that, I always enjoy a nice cup of tea in the afternoon.

Hope you're having a wonderful week. xx

Easy Chocolate Cake

This cake is quick and easy to make and fun to eat. It is probably one of the easiest and healthiest cakes I've made in a long time. Really. The cake is awesomely rich, moist and flavourful, although it has no butter or eggs. I bet you have every ingredient in your pantry.

Ingredients:

3 cups all-purpose flower
1 cup sugar
3 tablespoons cocoa powder (unsweetened)
2 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
2 tablespoons vinegar
1 tablespoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup canola oil
2 cups water

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350F. In a large bowl, mix flower, sugar, cocoa powder, salt and baking soda. Make three separate holes in the flower mixture. In one hole put vanilla; in another hole the vinegar, and in the third hole the canola oil.
Pour the water slowly over the mixture and stir until moistened. Pour into an ungreased round cake pan (or a 8x8 inch baking pan). Bake at 350F oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until a toothpick stuck in the center of the cake comes out clean.
