The rain in Spain stays mainly in the plain!

The kitchen is a nice place to hang out when it’s pouring outside!
This morning’s experiments: orange + kahlua ganache truffles, lime + dark chocolate ganache truffles, and lime buttermilk* cake with a light lime juice/icing sugar glaze.
Cake is now sitting in tummies of flatmates, neighbour and friends (and me) – and truffles will be despatched by mail tomorrow after I check with the courier that they will survive the ride… cooking is certainly more fun when there are more people around to eat!
In other news, last night was -> the rugby (which I watched a tiny bit of) – and The Wizard of Oz. Mind still caught between Tin Man and the Yellow Brick Road today.
* = yes, I KNOW the word of the week has been buttermilk, but I’ve now finished the carton of it at last!
Hello fellow New Zealand foodie :) Nice to meet you and read your blog! I shall keep my eye on you. Blessings,

Those truffles sound amazing!
Oh Mel you just made my tummy growl!
Thanks Christina :-) I am following your blog too!
Greg and Jian – they were definitely fun flavours to make!
Mel, your blog is lovely! I do think that chocolate on a rainy day is most certainly the way to go.
Thank you Kimberley :-) Hehe yes – chocolate tastes even better (if such a thing is possible) when the sun is hiding…
Oh, your lucky flatmates/neighbours/friends receiving couriered truffles (!! amazing). That cake looks beautiful too – looks like the perfect texture.
They were (blissfully unaware) guinea pigs ;-)
