Here's what's making June a happy month for me.
The Blogcation Retreat was a smash success!
Our homemade Blogcation brigadeiros
3 Tablespoons of Cocoa Camino cocoa
1 Tablespoon of butter
1 can (14oz) of sweetened, condensed milk
In a medium sauce pan over medium heat, stir all the ingredients together and cook the mixture until it thickens (about 10 minutes - it will be about the thickness of brownie batter). When the mixture has cooled enough for you to handle it, you roll the batter into small balls and then into Cocoa Camino coconut - you'll need about a 1/2 cup. (The recipe originally says it will make 20 brigadeiros but we doubled it and we only got 30 balls in total).
Heading back to London - Ontario that is!
Being behind the trend on reading
I'm finally getting around to reading the book I picked up there: The Tipping Point by Malcolm Gladwell. The irony of me being behind the times when it comes to reading a book about trends that were trending several years ago is not lost on me but I'm really enjoying it all the same!
Triumphant backyard makeover
