It’s been awhile since I’ve posted, things have been bonkers-bananas around here! Travel-work-sleeping and eating seems to be how I have been operating the past few weeks. Not to complain! I love what I do, I love to eat, I love traveling….all good things. But sometimes it’s just so good to be home, in your own bed and having somewhat of a routine to follow (at least for a few consecutive days!).
That being said, I have a backlog of lovely recipes I can’t wait to share with you lovelies! Mr. Giggles’ mother has been staying with us for the past few weeks, she is in from Europe where she lives. I love her dearly, she is a wonderful and fascinating woman. I love hearing her perspective on things, especially comparing food, lifestyle and people from Europe and America. She is also a fantastic cook and we have such similar ideas on food and the nourishment you put into your body.
So, while she was here I had to do some recipe testing for a company I work with and she was so excited to help and be an official taste tester! And when she gave me the stamp of approval for these citrusy delights I was thrilled. Flecks of lemon and orange zest, pops of chia and poppy seeds that burst when you chew and a wholesome yet tender crumb make up these bright little bundles.
And with spring being dull and rainy here in Chicago, these are sure to brighten up your day and bring some sunshine into the kitchen!
