artfuldesperado I am having little heart attacks in every corner! This is a colmado (old school grocery store) named Quilez which was opened around 1908, it carries hundreds if not thousands of Spanish products that range from vanilla glazed chestnuts to cava and other spirits. I mean. Come on! Can you cry with me please!! 3h

artfuldesperado Living my own version of Vicky Christina Barcelona, except it's more like Gabriel cake-all-day Barcelona. Also I really enjoyed getting lost in Park Güell, a place I've dreamed of visiting for years! Gaudí's work and inspiration is out of this world. I so want to make a cake with the mosaic details used in the park 1d

artfuldesperado My heart beats like an artichoke...or something. So, I have little internet access at the moment and don't even care. Why? 'Cause finally after one of the busiest summers on record I can step away from my computer to relax!! No styling (maybe a little) no cooking (just eating). Ps this is a recipe for roasted artichokes with miso jalapeño aioli which will be posted with a friend very soon! *end of transmission* 1w
