Berry Delicious Summer Pudding

Summer is here and I always find myself indulging in yummy seasonal fruits around this time of year – they’re just too good to resist. It seems that every time I go to the market, I make the mistake of overbuying fruit and forgetting to remind my family to eat it. I hate letting the fruit go to waste and recently came across a brilliant recipe on food52.com for Berry Summer Pudding. There are only a few easy ingredients and you can change up the fruit combination if you want (this recipe calls for blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries). It’s perfect to top off a summer cookout if you have a surplus of uneaten fruit and white bread hanging around ( and even stale bread is ok for this).  So celebrate, have some friends over and enjoy the sweetness of summer and this delicious recipe!

Currant Rouge

The dark, mysterious and seductive scent of currants is the inspiration for this scent and this candle is all about setting the mood. Tangy & modern with citrus, tart apple & green accord, it makes us think of the brilliant red color of the currant berries found throughout Europe. In my travels, I enjoyed collecting these while walking through a friend’s garden in Belgium. I remember picking them straight from the bushes and popping them into my mouth, puckering from their unexpected but not unpleasant tartness.
