Traveller’s Notes

Milena’s Adventures

I’m currently travelling around Europe with my twin brother, and so today’s post is a conglomeration of different snapshots rather than a recipe.

Some vignettes from the last few weeks…

  1. My niece’s birthday cake! She turned 6 right after the whole family adopted two wonderful kittens, so the cake was kitten-themed. Her mother and I worked together to make the cake (and my other niece made the black cat’s body!)
    the culprits in action
  2. Chocolate chip cookies cookies cookies cookies cookies (that I then froze). Check out Sunaina’s Quest for Chocolate Chip Cookies for her own thoughts on the thin chocolate chip cookie (mine were chunky and a little too round for my liking from having been in the freezer)!
  3. Balloon flowers! (Somehow I remembered how to make balloon things…)

     

  4. Piroshki and some very silly hedgie wine!
  5. Leftover piroshki filling made into fried potato-cakes with sriracha-chili mayonnaise dip
  6. Sherry banana bread muffins with raisins
    we are good and boozy
  7. The dear friends who are travelling with me 🙂

    (I made this tiny little one because my friend handed me yarn and a crochet hook, but for a crocheted octopus of your own, check out Kisses or Stitches on Etsy)

    Happy travels, wherever you may be!

I'm a PhD student in Musicology (what is musicology? Yeah, I get that all the time...) who manages her stress in healthy ways that definitely don't involve starting to bake at midnight, finishing at 4am, then remembering all the writing she has to do and eating cookies to cheer herself up.
