A little person. We created a little person. It's been just over two months and I still can't quite believe it. He is amazing. He has grown so quickly already; his little cheeks have filled out, his arms and legs have those adorable chubby baby rolls on them. His smile is the cutest thing I've ever seen. I'm biased, but the lady at Bed Bath n Table also told me so the other day.
Life is settling down a little. My man, David and I learn more about each other and our little cookie each day. I'm attempting to slow down. I won't get this time back (nor any in the years to come, but this time full of cuddles is so special. I won't be here as often this year, but I plan on another edition of The Gluten Free Scallywag Magazine towards the end of the year. In the meantime I will continue client recipe redevelopment and food photography, hopefully, mid year after my self imposed maternity leave.
10months ago when I fell pregnant I had been planning on whipping up two things in my kitchen; chocolate mousse and tiramisu. Pregnancy put a stop to that thanks to the recipes' raw eggs. Now (yay now!) I can enjoy them! I've made this chocolate mousse a few times now. I alternate between using Whittakers 72% or 50% cocoa chocolate. Funnily enough the consensus is that that lower cocoa chocolate is somehow richer, perhaps the sweetness? I'm not sure, I'll have to make both again to confirm.
