June 14, 2014


Usually around this time and a little earlier I blog about my wishlist for the current month.

This month Bloomingville released their new 2014 Autumn Winter Catalog and I can safely say I would buy every single one of what is pictured there. So my Junes wishilist? Just about anything from Bloomingville 🙂 

All the photos in this post are taken from their catalog which you can download here!

Double Vanilla and Milk Chocolate Pudding

June 13, 2014


A while ago I made these amazing Chocolate Hazelnut double baked Biscotti and felt that combining them with a great double vanilla and milk chocolate pudding would be probably the best thing that happened to me that day. And it really was. While the pudding was hot is has the consistency of very thick chocolate so the biscotti where perfectly covered for every bite. As an added bonus next day I was left with amazing double chocolate puddings that I felt I had to one day share with you.

Scroll down for the recipe if you are into chocolate as much as I am!

Ingredients


For the milk Chocolate pudding :

1/3 cup sugar
3 tb cornstarch
3 tb cocoa powder

half a cup of nutella

2 1/4 cup milk
1 tb butter

1 vanilla bean


Preparation


In a heavy medium saucepan stir together the sugar, flour and cocoa powder. Stir in the milk all at once. Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened and bubbly Cook and stir 1 minute more. Remove from heat and stir in the butter and vanilla. Strain the pudding over a sieve to take out any lumps. 


For the white Chocolate pudding :


2/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup cornstarch
1/4 tsp salt
2 1/2 cups whole milk
4 large egg yolks
2 tb unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
1 vanilla bean


Preparation


Place a fine-mesh sieve over a large bowl and set aside. In a medium saucepan, combine together sugar, cornstarch and salt. Add milk slowly and dissolve the cornstarch completely. Whisk in the egg yolks. Place the saucepan over medium heat, whisking constantly until the first large bubble forms and it sputters. Reduce heat to low, whisking constantly and cook for 1 minute. The mixture will start to thicken, whisk constantly. Remove from the flame, immediately pour the mixture sieve into the bowl . Stir butter and vanilla extract into hot pudding and combine well.


After you have your two puddings just pour the milk chocolate into a cup or a bowl first then add some tablespoons of the vanilla pudding and mix them roughly with a knife creating swirls! It’s an easy and fun process 🙂

My Nespresso Coffee corner spot

June 8, 2014


Today’s post is about my coffee corner in the living room/home office. 

It shares the same wall as the kitchen so I tend to think of it as part of it. 

This corner is not only amazingly comfortable for us but it seems that is also loved by all of you. It is by far the reason of most of mails that I receive and also the photos I see randomly on pinterest not to mention that it gets the most features! I was so delighted to see it featured in Apartment Therapy!


Another question I get frequently is about these great transparent double glass cups. 

We love them so much we currently have 6 in medium size. They are the Pavina thermocups from Bodum and they are great for cold or hot beverages!

The coffee machine is from Nespresso  the CitiZ&Milk model. My boyfriend bought it a couple of years ago and although it is very comfortable to use we sort of can’t wait for it to break so we can replace it with a bigger actual espresso machine. I will have to give every credit to Nespresso though for making it very difficult for us to justify buying a new while the old one still works perfectly.

It is really easy to create a space like this in a corner of your living room. I love the idea of replacing the little library with an IKEA trolley that I will probably paint white. I think it will fit this corner better and I will finally be able to put this little library under the stairs where it was its original place!
