Swiss Wine - white wine from Valais

Angeline Vendange Tardive 2007

This wine is delicious.  Great to serve with appetizers or dessert.  While cooking dinner with my husband we each had 2 glasses.

It's white wine from Valais.  It is very sweet, just how I like it.

Chocolate Zucchini Cake

I love chocolate cake!  Here is the recipe I tried.  And it turned out really well.  The texture was moist and chocolatey, the taste had no sign of the zucchinis in it and I enjoyed eating it.

Fondue à la tomate

Cooking and baking are a couple of my favorite hobbies.  So, you will see many posts here on food, dining, cooking and baking.

This winter, for the first time, I prepared a "fondue à la tomate".  It's cheese fondue with tomato sauce and it's usually eaten with boiled potatoes.  The original cheese fondue, which can be made with different types of cheese including Gruyère,  is one of Switzerland's national dish.  It's also well-known in France.  And, it's eaten with bread.

Reflection on Life: Simplicity

"Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication" - Albert Einstein

I'm aiming for a high level of simplicity in my life.  I've been thinking about it for months now and already began simplifying some parts.
I started with my wardrobe and removed anything I don't use anymore, I no longer like, or which don't fit properly.  It felt great and I feel a bit lighter.  My dressing space seems more spacious and more attractive.
I intend to do this for my library, my kitchen, my facebook contacts...even how I spend my time and energy.

Book I read: "The Alchemist" by Paulo Coelho

A book that everyone should read.

I enjoyed reading it and didn't want it to end.  It's inspiring and motivating.  Something that anyone in doubt of what they want to do or be in life needs to read.
