I Put a Spell on You


Hello, everybody! I know I haven’t been around for a while but I had a baptism to attend, a beautiful town to visit, a little girl to look after (not my own yet),  a double rainbow to admire, a hide-and-seek to play, a dance to dance, a song to sing, a flower to love and so on and so forth. But I haven’t forgotten about my blog and it is time to post something here. I may not be into Halloween that much but I like the mystery behind it. And the role play. Today I am a witch ( a good one o:-)  ) and well, I put a spell on you… to always love and follow this blog. ;))

Do not worry, my dear, the spell lasts only until this time next year so for a year or so, you are MINE… ( oops, a bad  one  >:) )

Trick or treat? 😉

River Flows in You

Rest With Your Dream Inside My Dream


Yesterday I discovered a wonderful poem of a wonderful poet: Sonnet LXXXI: Rest with your dream inside my dream by Pablo Neruda. I was struck by how romantic this can be. It feels like a prayer that you make before going to sleep and this is what I thought I would do. Acquire his book of poems Cien Sonetos de Amor (100 Love Sonnets) and read every night for a hundred days, a poem like a prayer. So that my heart can weep and smile and bleed and feel and be happy and love, my love.

Sonnet LXXXI: Rest with your dream inside my dream

Already, you are mine. Rest with your dream inside my dream.
Love, grief, labour, must sleep now.
Night revolves on invisible wheels
and joined to me you are pure as sleeping amber.

No one else will sleep with my dream, love.
You will go we will go joined by the waters of time.
No other one will travel the shadows with me,
only you, eternal nature, eternal sun, eternal moon.

Already your hands have opened their delicate fists
and let fall, without direction, their gentle signs,
you eyes enclosing themselves like two grey wings,

while I follow the waters you bring that take me onwards:
night, Earth, winds weave their fate, and already,
not only am I not without you, I alone am your dream.

Creme Brulee


I love Creme Brulee. Who doesn’t? Here is a recipe from the already-known book: “Good Housekeeping Cookery Book” , 1985. I remember the first time I made this, several years ago. The compliments given made my heart happy and encouraged me to continue cooking so here I am today, sharing my little experience for good food and fine recipes.

Today my recipe is for a special occasion, it is for a birthday dear and special to me, so this is for you, my love. ❤

Creme Brulee

Serves 6

Ingredients:

  • 600 ml (20 fl oz) double cream
  • 1 vanilla pod
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 100 g (4 oz) caster sugar

Method:

  • Pour the cream into the top of a double saucepan or into a mixing bowl placed over a pan of simmering water. Add the vanilla pod and warm gently until almost boiling, the remove from the heat. Remove the vanilla pod.
  • Beat together the egg yolks and 50 g (2 oz) of the caster sugar until light in colour. Gradually pour on the cream, stirring until evenly mixed.
  • Stand 6 individual ramekin in dishes in a roasting tin, then pour in enough hot water to come halfway up the sides of the dishes. Pour the custard mixture slowly into the ramekins, dividing it equally between them.
  • Bake in the oven at 150°C, 300°F, mark 2 for about 1 hour until set. Do not allow the skin to colour. Remove from the tin and leave to cool, then refrigerate overnight.
  • Sprinkle the remaining sugar evenly over the top of each Creme Brulee and put under a preheated hot grill for 2-3 minutes until the sugar turns to a caramel. Leave to cool, then chill before serving. This is delicious served with a selection of fruit, such as freshly sliced strawberries and peaches and stoned cherries.

Happy birthday, my heart!
