Our Christmas dinner features this effortless but oh-so-tasty dessert. This Blackforest trifle featured brownie chunks, sweet dark cherries and lightly sweetened whipped cream.

We had friends over for a lovely grown up evening with grown up canapés and drinks. It’s ridiculous how nice it is to eat decadent grown up stuff once in a while when one is surrounded by little people for the most part.

Knitting with a lovely yarn I received for Christmas. It’s a hand-dyed linen/cotton blend. My project is a super simple but pretty summery scarf.
