Crochet Bikinis & A Trip to the Zoo

Team her a cute pair of short jeans or a flowing chiffon skirt and you are ready for a evening out or a wild weekend at Coachella music festival. [...]

We decided to join the festivities of Festa Junina & threw our own party with the help of our wonderful neighbours. This was Festa Junina at another level for me, as I got the chance to really experience the local culture and traditions at first hand. Everyone arrived bring a traditional dish associated with the season. Including a delicious huge pan of 'Caldo Verde' and fresh bread, mulled wine, peanut brittle, popcorn and a table full of cakes. To help with the food I spent the week testing recipes of 'Bolo de Fubá or Sweetcorn cake. I am happy and proud to say that I seemed to have passed the brazilian approval as I recieved many compliments for my cake from my guests. So today I would like to share this super easy recipe made in a blender! And is a perfect accompaniment with fresh coffee.
