– Easter scenes at home today –
Reading Porter magazine while scoffing Rococo chocolate eggs and and cuddling my jellycat bunny. At the same time admiring the insane artistry of my Mrs Tiggy-winkle biscuit from the amazing Biscuiteers.

Sunday’s = Home made granola bars and coffee
Toast 2 cups of rolled oats and 1/2 a cup of chopped almonds in the oven until just going golden.
Meanwhile put 1/4 cup of unsalted butter, 1/4 cup of brown sugar, 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract and 1/3 cup of honey or agave nectar in a pan and heat until melted together. Leave to cool.
Roughly chop up half a cup each of sour cherries, cranberries. I also add a 1/4 cup each of pumpkin seeds and chopped walnuts and dried apricot.
Combine all of these ingredients together – then add 1/4 cup of dark chocolate chips – put in a non stick tin and press down.
Cook in a 140 oven for about 10-15 minutes until just golden brown.
Plate, mug and tray from Skandium.

Here’s what I’m reading this week. I received Kinfolk Table for christmas which I was hugely excited about and I picked up some magazines to keep me occupied this week. That and a wonderfully weird Murakami that I picked up whilst in Daunt Books in Marylebone the other day.
Murakami, The Strange Library

Mast Brothers being available in London is something I’ve long awaited after having ogled their beautiful chocolate bars online. After a long wait, I’ve finally got my hands on some. I went by the Bulldog Edition, where not only are they selling the bars but also the Mast Brothers famous brewed chocolate, which I felt was obligatory to try. It’s a wonderfully weird concoction that appears much like a cup of tea, only it’s brewed cacao instead. Sounds strange, but with a touch of milk and maple syrup, you’re living the brewed chocolate dream. Comes in a cool geo print cup too (BONUS).
