After a busy few months and July that went like a flash, I finally get to have a mini celebration here with you my lovely readers. And on a personal level, this little celebration adds itself to another anniversary that is also quite important to me as I moved to Ireland ten years ago!
I look back at all those years that were punctuated by different jobs, travels, moving to Australia for three years, coming back to Ireland, meeting great people and friends along the way, developing my career as a photographer; and it happens that those past two years that started with the blog were the most productive and creative so far.
I am very grateful for what Crème de Citron brought to me. I have met some really lovely people thanks to it, some of those meetings becoming friendships. It allowed me to push my boundaries in terms of creativity and more than anything else, photography! I have been using it as a place to share the recipes I love making and sharing, but also as a platform to improve my food and lifestyle photography skills. The lack of blog posts over the past few months actually means I have been busy with food photography work for clients and this to me is the greatest achievement this little blog gave me over the past two years.
Thank you all for your continued readership along the way. And a special merci beaucoup for those who really encouraged me over the past two years, you know who you are!
Now to celebrate, scroll down for the recipe of an easy chocolate and nuts marbled cake. I love making a little sweet thing to bring along to a friend's house, be it for an afternoon chat or a creative morning like the one I went to recently (and I made mini terrariums that time, that's what I call a 'gardening' achievement on my part!). I brought along this easy to make marbled cake to share. Let's swirl the batters and bake a cake!
