small sighs

I have a new passion for open sandwiches, this one is topped with peach and brie.

A chocolate and olive oil topping for this sandwich (I know what you are thinking 'chocolate and olive oil together!') but believe me, it is so tasty! Just brush olive oil onto a fresh French bread or toast, then top with grated 70% dark chocolate. Grill for a couple of minutes and enjoy. Two more open topped sandwiches from the book The Little Paris Kitchen.

 These chocolates and doilies definitely win cutest items of the week!

 These pots fall into my love of all things eclectic. I love to mix and match with different colours. 

I've always wanted to try making pasta and now is my chance. S surprised me with these goodies as I have kept talking about giving it a try! Along with the cookery book I should be an expert in no time (eeek). I will let you know how I get on.


  1. The brie & peach sandwich sounds really interesting.
