In a few hours time, I will be jetting off for a long awaited holiday. One that I don't have to worry about submission deadlines and work responsibilities.
Rest asssured I will be bringing my camera along and will be updating often!
I cheated with this chocolate rum pie. I used a sweet shortcrust pastry instead of making my own.. but hey, whatever that saves time and looks good right? =)
I delibrately chose this pie to post today because I believe that it represents a sweet start to a new journey ahead.
So stay tuned people!!
