For all good little adults, (Wurzburg, Germany)
like you, and me! Kids of course get all that they can eat. (Budapest, Hungary)
Oh heck, even if you’ve been bad, (Bamburg, Germany)
you can have some too. (Nurenburg, Germany
We will all behave better next year! (Vienna, Austria)
And if we don’t, (Vienna, Austria)
there are always holiday treats, (Brussels, Belgium)
for the good in all of us! (Budapest, Hungary)
And be happy because these phatt photos,
cannot make you fat! (Passau, Germany)
It all looks glorious 🙂
And thank goodness looking has no calories! 😉
Okay Cindy, when your post came up in my Reader, I was munching on an apple! Now I have put the apple down, and am dreaming of every single treat in your photos!! *LOL* Wonderful photos (but I’m not kidding about the apple)! 😉 Cher xo
Laughing, trust me I know. I look at them and think, why didn’t I try that one? Or how could I missed that one??? I remember walking down the street in Passau eating this chocolate that I am now dreaming about! 😉
Hahaha, I honestly couldn’t live in any of those locations, because I’d be in those shops all the time! 😉
I think I just put on my 10 pounds of extra Christmas weight, Cindy….
Enjoy your Christmas Season!!
Laughing, I wonder if there is a correlation between looking at photos of desserts and subsequently eating some???? I hope not. Merry Christmas!
I want some of everything! Holiday hug, Cindy. <3
A woman after my own heart! <3
Looking at it can’t make you fat. What a sight!
Thank God for that, or I would be REALLY phatt!
Ok so just by looking at these scrumptious delights I probably gained 500 lbs LOL! BUT there are no calories during the holidays right?!
No calories. It’s just science. Your body is so shocked by the sudden caloric over load that is just stops processing the calories. AKA I wish!! 😉
I think I’m going into a diabetic coma, and I don’t even have diabetes! Glorious, mouth watering photos, Cindy…..
I look at food like this like a overly healthy young man might look at pretty young ladies! So much dessert, so little time!! Laughing……
So deliciously taken Cindy!
Thank God there are no calories with photography! 😉
… You are my hero. I don’t think I could let a camera and a window stand in my way … 😉
Did you bring back some of the treats with you, Cindy? Those are delicious. 🙂
I wish I did! I would like some right now!! 😉
Reblogged this on Smorgasbord – Variety is the spice of life and commented:
Cindy Knoke with some tantalising treats from the European capitals… thank goodness they are virtual…
There is a lot to be said for virtual desserts. You can look, but you can’t gain weight! 😉
Happy Holidays to you and yours!
I adore Sachertorte, but have not had any in Vienna. If you happen to have a slice ( or 2), think of me 🙂
love all the goodie pics!
I had Sachertorte! Now I am thinking of them too, darn it!! So many desserts, so little time! Happy Holidays Linda~
Oh good! Always time for dessert.
Happy Holidays Cindy. I appreciate your friendship and wish you a blessed New Year.
I’m drooling on my tablet. My weakness, I wouldn’t be able to decide.
Yes, This happens to me too. Only later do I know what I should have picked! 😉
I would want to taste everything.
I’ll take one of these … one of those … a bag of this … and a bag of that.
A man after my own heart! <3
The lobster’s mine….!!
You have excellent taste!! But would you eat it or look at it?????
… Probably check the number of calories before I did anything…..!!
Pretty Hot and Tasty Treats!
Yes, indeed! Phatt! 😉
If you keep showing me crawfish on signs and now chocolate — I’m going to need to take a trip to New Orleans for to get some crawfish bisque. 😀 Super yummy looking treats.
Ooooh, crawfish bisque sounds wonderful, especially if it is made in New Orleans. I need to go back there and eat. Oh, I could walk too, before I eat!!
Have some bisque for me and I know I don’t even have to ask — thanks for sharing the beautiful photos you’ll take while there.
Look forward to another year with you my wonderful friend! <3
Tantalizing decadence. It might be worth the fat !! 🎄
Fat is probably not worth it, but you could eat some and not get fat. That is the hard part! You can’t eat it all, darn it all! 😉
Oh, Cindy, thank you for the treats without the calories! Tooooo divine. I probably would have gained ten pounds! Cheers to you as we count down to Christmas!
My husband who is fairly dessert resistant, keeps talkiing about the chocolate in Passau and wondering if we can order some online for New Years. I’m going to look into it. It was the best chocolate I can remember!
These look delicious.I could gobble them all 😛
Wishing you a very joyous Holiday season!
Our eyes are so much bigger than our stomachs which I guess is very fortunate for us! 😉
Haha you’re right Cindy 😛
OMG, heaven! I’d weigh 500 lbs if I lived there!
It would be majorly tempting. It doesn’t work at all to eat chocolate in the US after coming back from Europe, which is a good thing for me!
Wow! Too divine, indeed! Love, love it… Thank you, Cindy! 🙂
Best enjoyed via computer screen in order to avoid eaters remorse! 😉
Thank you for showing all these delights – perhaps you passed them by because it must be so difficult to choose
Exactly! I get overwhelmed and tune out! I look at the photos later and think you should have gotten this and that and maybe that! 😉
Feast of sweets. (and the time of year to visit all those little bakeries true to their origins) Fun
I so wish I could beam over for some holiday shopping!!
So much beautiful candy!! Chocolate is my weakness, I’d be in my glory. Happy Holidays, Cindy!!
Thankfully, chocolate is actually good for you, in moderation!
OMG! Sugar rush and yum!
Thankfully for your health, it is only a virtual rush! <3
And, in recent reports: There is a food shortage in Europe. Police are looking for an American women with her face covered in a suspicious layer of cream. The public are advised she is armed with two chocolate eclairs and considered dangerous. 😀
HeHeHe! You got me Graham! And I am armed with my eclairs and dangerous, but only if your try and take one away! 😉 😉
No match for my my sawn-off strudel 😀
J’en veux !!!
Moi aussi!!! En fait, je veux beaucoup! 🙂 🙂 <3
Is that a chocolate lobster?!!
It is! There was a whole sea theme with mermaids etc. Serious works of art!
Amazing! I could sink my teeth into those that’s for sure! Yum!
I make my own pralines and truffles, because I missed them so much here. Oh the picture of the bakery brought back memories. I love the European fruitcakes. Thanks you for making me hungry 🙂
Oh my, I am drooling about the thought of your homemade pralines and truffles. Seriously, you make them? Where do you live? Just kidding, sort of! I came back from this trip ruined for chocolate in the states. I am lookiing into ordering online for New Years from Passau! I thought Belgian and Swiss chocolate were incredible, the chocolate we had in Passau was the best I have ever had~
I love good chocolate and missed it here in the U.S. so I started making it myself. I live in Ohio and I do send out care packages lol
Che tentazione! 🙂
Sì,e voglio un po’ ora !! 😉 😉
Anche io! 😀 Ma non so quale scegliere
Che è esattamente il mio problema! È come un negozio pieno di diamanti. Quale scegliere??? Non riesco a decidere! 😉
Hey, Cindy! Are you kidding me? My eyes are crying when I see so many sweets. Oh, so many… There are so many sweets in this world 🙂 You are sweet, too
So many sweets, so little time, thank God I am not there, or I would try and eat all them!! You are the sweetest of all. Happy Holidays! <3
Probably I would try and eat all them, too. Happy Holidays to you too, Cindy!
Wow this is amazing! Yummmmmmmm
Yes, now I am just sitting here thinking of chocolate……..sigh!
Wow what treats they are amazing looking!!
Zero calories for looking only! 😉
Pingback: Phatt Holiday Treats From Europe ~ | Wind Eggs
I reckon I could happily settle into a sofa with the lobster and watch a whole season of a tv series 😀
hehehe! I would love to join you! <3 <3
OMG Cindy I’m drooling, and very glad they’re only photos!
Yes, but they trigger the sugar receptors in my very phatt brain!! 😉 😉
Yeah, me to 🙂
At least just looking at the pictures won’t make me fat. 🙂 But, who would even think to just walk away from all those delectable morsels without sampling them, or trying one or two. Oink, oink.
Thankfully I do at times get overwhelmed by the selection rendering me stupified and unable to make a coherent decision. Kinda like an anticipatory sugar overdose. This is a good thing, or else I would be very phatt!
lol 🙂 Have a wonderful Christmas wherever you are.
What an incredible display. At least temptation is only imaginary from here.
Actually talking about it a lot helps with the cravings. Kinda like AA for desserts! 😉 😉
Ooh, la la! 🙂
You said it!! 🙂
Reblogged this on arrayoflettersblog and commented:
Do they offer a discount for good little adults? 😉
They definitely should, and for those who fly back and order in bulk!
I put on weight just seeing all these delicious pictures. LOL
Happily, that is just a guilt induced delusion, kinda like lust in the mind in the bible! 😉
Oh wow! Amazing!
Yep, it was a heavenly overload for me, too good to properly process!
Extraordinary Desserts. S.D. Ca. 😉
Extraordinary desserts looks fabulous but I tried it a couple of times and it was good, but I wasn’t super impressed. Did you like it? Coulon’s Dessertier in La Jolla is the bees knees though. Michele Coulon’s father ran a restaurant called The Belgian Lion. They are from Belgium and they can cook!
E. D. is a feast for the eyes but too rich for my system. As your photos attest I think Europe takes top honors. I’ll ask my RSF friend if he has been to Coulon’s. I’m guessing yes.
You can’t get away from him, can you? The lobster got free from the pharmacy sit in in Slovakia and swam to a beautiful candy shop in Germany to pose for picture 7. If you want to eat that one, don’t cook it, steaming or microwaving is not recommended. To order for a meal in Germany, ask for Maine Hummer, and accept no other. In France, homard America in. The alias taken by the bug in your photograph, Praline Croquant, does not fool me!
Hehehe! I am being pursued by lobsters. Did you know a huge lobster swam up to me once where I live. I plucked him out of the ocean and everyone was massively jealous. I let it go. When I was a kid in La Jolla we could pick lobsters out of tide pools, but no more. I do think a chocolate, praline lobster from Belgium would surely taste very sweet, but it was really too pretty to eat!! 😉 😉 <3
Don’t pick up Maine lobsters carelessly unless their claws are pegged! For dining, lobsters from eastern Canada and New England are excellent! Another recommendation, freshly cooked lobster meat, chilled a bit, and placed in a buttered toasted hot dog role. Don’t go Buffalo, Chicago, New York, or anyway like that by adding sauerkraut, chile, or anything else. Okay, maybe a very little mayonnaise.
Reblogged this on necltr and commented:
One can find anything in Germany, even a Maine lobster in a candy shop, look at picture #7 if you don’t believe me.
This season have so many temptations in food 😀 Thanks for the journey, Cindy. Nice weekend )
Yes, and the choice comes down to which to yield too! Enjoy!
Hahaha, Cindy, I just ate dinner but seeing these images made my mouth water! Before I moved to a different part of California, I used to live in a town that had an authentic European bakery called Konditerei where all the goodies are a work of art! Now I totally miss those goodies. I wish I could just reach through the screen and take that chocolate lobster!
You’re so blessed to have been to so many places and seen so many wonderful things Cindy! Thanks for sharing the world’s goodies with all of us! Happy Holidays! <3 ~Lynn
Happy Holidays Lynn and you know I am blessed to know people like you. Wishing you all the best and a Healthy and Happy New Year. Look foward to a virtual 2016 with you my friend!
No way ! I’ve never seen so much sweets ! Yummy !
It kinda makes it hard to pick doesn’t it! That’s what happens with me, I freeze with all the choices which is a good thing, because if I didn’t, I can’t even imagine the calories I would consume! Happy Holidays!
Just delightful, Cindy! Happy holidays to you too 🙂
Ahhh, so wonderful to share it with you! <3
I’ve been trying to reach through my phone screen but nothing happens! I’ve been good this year, almost lol. Wonder pictures as always and as a bonus, fat free!!
Unfortunately I have been trying to reach through too, to no avail! You are a special friend Dorinda and I wish you the Happiest Possible Holiday Season~ <3
Thank you, Cindy! Many blessings, to you and your family, this holiday season! Be well, my friend ❤️
You have no idea how much I look forward to your comments! You are a wonderful friend. (。≖ˇ∀ˇ≖。) X 10! Happy Holidays my friend! <3
Aww, Happy Holidays to you too, Cindy!
Reblogged this on penpowersong.
When I visit the Phillipines, which will be sooner rather than later, I would like to meet you! Happy Holidays my friend~
Oh, did that make me hungry! You’re right, though, Cindy. It’s better for me they were just pictures. 😀 — Suzanne
Sadly, this is the truth! Happy Holidays my friend~
Happy holidays from Europe, Cindy… or the outskirts of, anyhow! 😀 Yummy photos!
Happy Holidays to you in beautiful Europe!
This is a joy to the eye, firstly… secondly, a feast to the mouth… excellent photographs, dear Cindy. Merry Christmas and all my best wishes to you. Aquileana 🎄
The Merriest Chirstmas to you my friend. I have so enjoyed reading and learning from your posts this past year and look forward to more of the same in the New Year!
Wow! How could you ever choose a favorite treat!
Essentially I couldn’t. I went into choice overload, which is probably better than calorie overload! 😉
What a gorgeous display Cindy 🙂 A visual treat <3
Yes, we can feast our eyes rather than our stomachs which is probably better for us, although not quite as pleasurable! 😉
And a SWEET holiday season to you too!
Visa versa 2 U! <3
Cake shops, etc. were one of the highlights of Europe for me. Your photos have me drooling. Excuse me, I have to go bake something! 😉
A well made cake is my favortie food in the world. Whatca baking????
Almond crescent cookies! 🙂
I make almond cookies for Christmas too! Love em~
Scrumptious, Cindy! Are you sure just peeking at the pictures won’t add inches to my backside??!! Merry Christmas to you and yours!
I am positive, but, (no pun intended) with the current fashion in butts, I suggest you eat as much as you would like! But then honestly, who in their right mind wants to keep up with the Kardashians? Not you. Not me.
Merry Christmas my friend and I look forward to 2016 with you! <3
HaHa, I definitely don’t want to keep up with the Kardashians! Merry Christmas right back at ya — let’s stay in touch!
love your phatt photos…I just know I gained 10 pounds looking at all that delicious wonderfullness 🙂
These photos are the good kinda phatt, the kind that thankfully won’t make you fat! Happy Holidays my friend!
Wow oh Wow! You must stop – wait. Don’t stop. So beautiful. now for you – a laugh:
Oh MY GOD!! This is the BEST video I have EVER seen!! I watched it like three times. These are MY PEOPLE! This is hilarious. It is now going in the inbox of everyone I know. I swear if I see another gluten free cake I will SNAP!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you for sending this best of bestest holiday video and Merry Christmas to you! <3 😉 🙂 (ღ˘⌣˘ღ)
Hahahaha – I also watched it a few times.
those all look delicious
So many desserts, so little time! ):
Cindy – Your photos convinced me I should be able to reach into my screen and select any number of goodies. One of my favorite things I loved about living in European countries, Christmas markets or not, was being able to stop at the bakery each and every day for fresh brochen and whatever else I thought I couldn’t live without. Needless to say, it’s a place where one must practice every ounce of courage they have.
It’s a good thing I had to do a serious amount of walking and such on my job or I would have come each time as ‘baggage’ and not as a passanger.
Exactly! The problem is one wants to try EVERYthing, which of course you can’t do. You have to settle for some incredibly delicious tastes which then remain in your mind like mantras, oooooooh that was so delicious!! Merry Christmas to you and Tom! <3
And the same to you and yours. The best I learned from the many bakeries I visited was that having a cup of coffee was an event and not a mad dash wherein you make a mad dash of in and out.
I finally learned, when the locals asked you to join them at (their table) you had finally arrived! It also offered up an opportunity to taste most everything offered in a particular bakery if you desired.
Friendships formed during those 3 to 4 hour cup(s) of coffee are some of the best that remain today. Here’s to friendships forged what seems a lifetime ago that remain strong today.
Yes, I know exactly what you mean, there is no rushing at the table expecially in France and Italy. People savor, food, drink and friends. It is a nice way to live. Be well dear Sheri.
Salivating, especially over the chocolate lobster…
Yes, he looks almost, I say almost, too artistic to eat!! 😉
Made the mistake of visiting your blog in the middle of the night! Feeling hungry now… 😛
Laughing, oh dear, so sorry! Some hot chocolate might help you get back to sleep! <3
Haha… thanks…. enjoyed the post… 🙂
Just looking at those can make one …phatt, but then, we only live once! 😉
Happy holidays, my dear Cindy! 🙂
Happy Holidays to you and your loved ones Marina! <3
Where but Germany or Austria would there be an item ‘unsere haustorte’–our house cake! These folks know their sweets!
They know them and I love them! <3
without any trace
of calories 🙂
The best way to enjoy chocolate is looking at it!
Yes, I emailed the Passau Chocolate Shop to see if I can order some online!. My bad! 😉
First I made my way through these photos on Facebook, and now I have to go through them on your blog. Have you no mercy, girl? 🙂 –Curt
I have none at Christmas time! I say it’s Christmas, eat some chocolate! Happy Holidays to you and your family Curt~
I’ve been chomping down Peggy’s Christmas cookies like there is no tomorrow. I have a clear understanding that another word for Holiday is indulge. 🙂 Happy Holidays also to you and your family as well, Cindy.
I may have gained a few pounds just looking, lol. Happy holidays Cindy. 🙂
Happy Holidays my friend and a Happy Healthy New Year!
Thanks Cindy! Wishing all the same to you and yours! <3
So delicious. Sorry I may be drooling on your post.
No worries, I can’t see it from here! 😉 😉
They all look perfect for the holiday season. Hope you have a very good Christmas, Cindy! It’s has been a great year for me, meeting you online. Thank you 🙂
You are a reason to be grateful this season Maiko! All the very best to you my friend~ <3
Oh my goodness so delicious looking! great photos
Good enough to eat, but fortunately, we can’t! 😉
Happy Sunday to you by Rinaldo🌻
Happy Sunday Rinaldo and have a wonderful Holiday Week!
I wish for you that all your Christmas wishes comes true! Merry Christmas!
Visa versa 2U! Merry Christmas~
The first picture makes me feel like taking a dive into it!… Your photo’s seem to have a strange effect on me… 😀
I wish I could beam back and eat more cake! Wish you could too! They were incredibly good. Cheers to you~
I lived in Germany for some time in my childhood and the highlight of a weekend after long walks in the woods with my mother was one of our favourite ‘Konditorei’, a coffee or tea and a lovely piece of cake. I can still taste them when I look at the picture 😉
So, just beam me up! (…or is it down?…) 😀
Up, down, let’s go get some cake!! 😉
Most heavenly post!!! Are you back yet? Happy, Happy Holidays to you and yours! 🙂
Yes, we are back! Enjoying the Holiday baking as I know are you. Happy Holidays dear Fae! <3
They all look so delicious! Happy Holidays!
Visa versa 2UX2! <3
Those pictures probably put back the “Don’t eat so much sugar” about 100 years. Totally magnificent.
Liebe Cindy da hast du aber wunderschöne Köstlichkeiten fotografiert da läuft einem ja das Wasser im Mund zusammen so viele schöne Leckereien hab einen schönen Start in die Weihnachtswoche Klaus in Freundschaft
Haben Sie eine wunderbare Weihnachts mein lieber Freund! <3
It’s phatt season!
It is!! Hooray! I am making fudge, all sorts of cookies, and mud pie on request!! Happy Holidays Brenda, to you and your family~
Oooh , mud pie. I could get down and dirty with that. I’m making oatmeal scotchies, sugar cookies, brownie Christmas trees and chocolate chip cookies. I feel the phatt coming! LOL Hope you and yours have great holidays!
Looks delicious! If you visit Bamberg, it’s worth sampling the Rauchbier (smoked beer) at the Schlenkerla brewery. Rachbier has an unusual taste; a little reminiscent of smoked bacon, and Bamberg is the best known place in the world it is brewed. http://www.schlenkerla.de/indexe.html
There used to be a US Army base in Bamberg, Warner Barracks, but it closed in 2014.
Yes, we were in Bamberg! Beautiful town. My husband tried the beer. I’m not a big beer drinker. The half timbered, ancient buildings were so impressive! Happy Holidays to you and your family John!
Oh my, Cindy. These confections look absolutely delicious. Thanks for making me hungry. 🙂
Well, I would only do this during the holidays! After the holidays, it’s carrots and celery~
I’m alternating carrots and celery with chocolate…it’s all a balancing act. 🙂
This is my kind of diet plan. The chocolate provides some needed calcium or I know you wouldn’t be eating it.
It has wonderful health benefits, as you know…in moderation…of course! That’s the tricky part!
Wowza! Dessert overload just looking at them! 🙂
Yes, almost satisfying!! 😉 😉
I should call you “temptress” for showing us all these treats. 🙂
I’ll take the chocolate tort from the bakery case in the top photo, please. The whole thing. My order is to go.
Smart, smart person! Can I drive you home??????
You just want a slice of that chocolate tort. 🙂
Let’s get two, one for me and one for you! 😉
Oh my, please excuse the heavy drooling! Gained a few pounds staring at your decadent treats, but it’s worth it for a lovely glimpse of Christmas-time Europe. The merriest wishes of the season to you!
I swear I have been sooooo good, but my pants seem to be too tight. I hope the photos aren’t having a psychosomatic effect on me! Happy Holidays!
Wow! I’ll have the Praline Croquant, please! It’s seafood, can’t be that bad, right?
Right! I like the way your mind works!! 🙂 Merry Christmas to you and yours!
Dear Sweet Cindy, Merry Merry Christmas, Special Lady…wishing you and your family the best and wonderful Christmas…
huggs and love to you and your family,
Awwww, back to you and your family my dear friend and the Happiest and Healthiest New Year!
that food looks to good, I have been eating candy allllllll day..lol
Uh oh! My bad! Merry Christmas dear Sherri!
Yum! Those all look so delicious! Great photos, Cindy. Happy Holidays! 🙂
Visa versa 2UX2! <3
Oh Cindy what a temptress you are… I’m just going over to check the fridge… Damn nothing but veggies in there, I’ll just have to drool over your photos…
You can eat those veggies, and just constantly repeat to yourself, “this is better than chocolate.” It doesn’t work, but you can still do it!
Haha I will try that mantra but can’t see it working…
Cuidado con las delicatessen navideñas porque hace subir la báscula. 😉
Feliz Navidad, amiga <3
Sí, yo estaba parado en la escala de hoy y todo hasta ahora es bueno, pero se acerca la Navidad!!!!!! Más feliz Navidad para ti mi querido amiga! <3 <3
Even though I just had breakfast, my mouth is watering!
Same here. I won’t do another phatt post for a reasonably long dietary period!
Looking this Post I am already feeling the festival.
How much they have tried to put them on the counters.
How much you have tried to put them on this Post
Happy Merry Christmas to YOU and ALL at Home.
Happiest of Holidays to you and to your family my dear Shiva! Thank you for your kindness my friend.
It is ‘Marvellous’, I had forgotten to add this.
Thank You for the Happiest days you have blessed me.
Let the coming year be so for you too.
Dear Maam Cindy!
ich möchte schon heute ein friedliches Weihnachtsfest ohne Stress und Kummer wünschen
Frohe Weihnachten mein Freund Sie und Ihre Familie!
danke dir, wünsche ein frohes und friedliches Fest
Oh, my goodness, my mouth is watering — especially at the first two pictures. It puts a new complexion on the words “sweet torture”.
Yes, I would to taste several of those cakes right now! Who cares if I just ate breakfast…..
This has to be the most delicious post ever!! What fun to “stroll” by Christmas treats from all over Europe!! Loved it! Thanks Cindy.
So glad you did my friend and Happy Holidays!
Merry Christmas Cindy!!
Feast for the eyes. Yum!
Thankfully photos have no calories!
Yikes! Okay Happy Holidays, and now I must go eat some chocolate! xx
😉 Happy & Healthy New Year Resa~
this food id making my mouth water lo 🙂
Time for a holiday treat of two for you! 😉
thank you 🙂
Good heavens! How do you travel and see such mouth watering sights without gaining a gajillion pounds? I would have to sample it all!
It’s hard isn’t it and tempting, but not really worth it. Happiest New Year to you Rebecca and I look forward to following you in 2016!
Oh! Yes to helping support Budapest economy and having scrumptious treats. I love whipped cream in layers of cake or torte or butter cream icing. You are a sweet temptress, Cindy! Now, I will rummage for a Christmas cookie! 😀
It is not good for me to look at this Christmas post I posted. It does bad things to the signals from my brain to my belly and I still have 2 Christmas pounds to lose! 😉
Such sweet visions of your travels ~
Safer to look in a photograph I fear than actually encounter. Much more dangerous then, let’s say a lion! 😉
Thankfully, photos have no calories!
So beautiful and yummy! I’m living in the wrong place! Thank you for sharing this….
It is definitely good I do not live in Europe because I would not be able to resist the chocolate. It is sooooo much better then what I can get in the states……
On the photographs I noticed too many milk and not strong dark chocolates. Hopefully in Belgium and some other European places you came to eat the real chocolate of 72-86% cacao. (for me good chocolate pralines and chocolate bars, have to have at least 54% cacao and I prefer chocolate from 72% onwards with as ideal 82%.
You are like my husband! My photos are biased you are correct, in that I photograph what I like. I am milk chocolate all the way. Of course in Europe, it is divine cream. My husband loves the intense dark too. Next time I am in Europe, which will be soon, I will photograph some delicious looking dark for you!
I’ll have one of each – please. 😀
Me 3!! 😀
Reblogged this on SUSANNE LEIST.
I missed this! Thank you Susanne. You are a lovely friend! <3
My mouth is watering with all these sweets 🙂
Thank God we can’t gain weight from photos!
All excellent, only one possible improvement. Replace the chocolate lobster with a real live one, cook with steam, serve with melted butter and lemon juice. An expert on the subject recommended a better method, I am not going to do it, but carefully remove the rubber band from the claws so that you are not put through great pain, wrap in Saran, cook in microwave oven. He also contrives a bed of wet seaweed in the wrap. Now you know why the lobster would want to claw you and why you would deserve to be clawed.
Eeeeeks! I love lobster with butter and lemon but I could never cook one alive. I saw this when I was a kid and it traumatized me.
