One of the amazing things about Vienna is the architecture. I am in the happy position of being able to enjoy the view of some of the most beautiful buildings in this lovely city every morning and evening on my way to work and home. Yesterday, I took my camera with me so that I could share some of these sights with you (and maybe make you little bit jealous…?)
These are delicious. I made them after finding something similar online. They looked so good I had to do a version of them myself. I fell in love soon as I saw them, and well….. The rest is history.
One thing I have learned in a life of nomadic migration, is that what is common in one part of the world may not be in another part of the world. It is a hard lesson to learn. You keep having to revisit it for a remedial review lesson that can at times be both frustrating and maddening. Extracts, here in Vienna, are not easy come by. The lesson is, If you want something, make it yourself. Otherwise it may be obscenely costly or just not available for purchase. And so, as my birthday is coming up in the not all too distant future, I decided it was high time to make some extracts. This way, I get to eat my birthday cake, even if alone, as those I am closest to are oceans away as usual.
