Hi! I’m Yvonne, a 40 something (wink) Kiwi, living in Zurich. I love fashion, travel, shopping and food – believing chocolate will cure almost anything!

  1. I think I’ll have to try this! The combination of lemon and chocolate is one I haven’t tried, but sounds wonderful. It would be really good if you could put recipes into a format that can be printed off….or am I being hopelessly old-fashioned? 🙂

    1. Hmmm – not old fashioned at all. Was thinking of making a little Christmas gift to friends with a printed recipe book or maybe publishing a recipe book – but need to get a few more recipes out there first. If you have any other idea let me know!
