Whenever Autumn arrives we make some decorations. Every year we get some pumpkins, as plenty of the crowd do, but we are not that ordinary. We look for smaller pumpkins to collect a few of them. Ussually we buy them in many different tones of orange and many different shapes to form a pretty decor on a table or a cupboard. I find them lovely as they’re “imperfect”. They make me feel Fall even more… Other cold weather flavours are kinda connected to them. Such as cake or muffins smell, where to make the dough we’ve used pumpkin puree. At my home you can always feel like there’s a cake in then oven, so I you guess so, you’ll propably be right!
Instead of complaining about grey days and rainy weather I would prefer to enjoy spending warm and cozy time at home, baking pumpkin, carrot and zucchini pastries, drinkimg hot green tea and spending lazy evenings covered by a blanket and watching romantic movies with friends. I am so joyful as it comes to feel the smell of cinnamon and cacao around the house.
Let’s face it, Fall is not that bad. I love it.

One of my Fall delights: heather.
Next to the dinning table, where I have all of my breakfasts, we have flowerpots hanged to the side. Heather is grown there and to be honest, looking at these lovely plants literally make my days.
Violet, purple, light pink, pastel rose, tones of white and cream.. all of these compose the color of heather. Forreal.. it’s the way too perfect, when I wake up, I come to the living room an I see sunrise (imagine the magic of sky during dawn) an our heather lightened by the morning golden sun reys.
That’s basically one of the reasons why I love mornings so much.

Hot Chocolate with Marshies

Hot Chocolate

What’s better to warm up and to get a little sweetness then Hot Chocolate is?! Supposedly nothing.
That’s why I think everyone should be able to make a perfect cuppa chocolate. Enjoy the recipe!

You’ll need:
• 2 tsp  cacao powder
• cup of whatever milk you like (my absolute favourite is thin coconut milk, as you warm it up the smell is incredible!)
• 1-2 tsp cane sugar (it’s okay to use regular white as well)
• 2 pieces of dark chocolate
• mini marshmallows

Firstly you’ll need to warm the milk up. As it’s hot, add cacao by little drops (not all at once) to avoid clods.
Stir untill all drink has the same regular color. Add sugar and mix till dissolved. I recommend to put the chocolate to a microwave for a few seconds to remake it hot, because it could loose it’s warmth, when we were adding cacao and sugar. Serve with pieces of chocolate inside the cup. Owing to the heat of liquid the chocolate will melt. Cover your cup od deliciousness with mini marshies. They’ll melt a bit as well.
Voila! The perfect cup of Hot Chocolate is ready! Enjoy!
