Brioche bread

Hi guys..How are you?

This week is very special for me, not only because I celebrated my 29th birthday but also, I have my 3 years anniversary with my sweet husband today :-). I can’t believe how time just flies by..but I actually enjoy getting older. I love understanding and appreciation for the life that comes with years, I love how I am learning to “not letting the behaviour of others to destroy my inner peace” as Dalai Lama teaches us, how to accept uncertainty and challenges, and still see positive in things. Because how else  would we learn/evolve if we were not challenged, right? Ok, so back to the recipe:-)..

This recipe is for basic brioche bread in stand mixer. From here, you can go ahead and add all sorts of things: orange zest, shaved chocolate, raisins, goat cheese and chive..whatever you like.

“When we speak we are afraid our words will not be heard or welcomed. But when we are silent, we are still afraid. So it is better to speak”-Audre Lorde “If you are not making notable mistakes along the way, you’re certainly not taking enough business and career chances” -SAllie Krawcheck “Take criticism seriously, but not personally. If there is truth or merit in the criticism, try to learn from it. Otherwise, let it roll right off you” – Hillary Clinton

“In love and in dreams there is no such thing as impossible” “I spent my life scared. Scared of what could happen…Might not happen.. I came to realize that fear is the worst of it. Fear is the real enemy. So I got up…got out in the real world and kicked that bastard as hard as I could square in the teeth” “When you find yourself doubting how far you can go…Remember how far you have come. Remember the times you have won and the challenges you have overcome…”

So let’s kick the sh#* out of option B” – Sheryl Sandberg “If you are successful, it is because somewhere, sometime, someone gave you a life or an idea that started you in a right direction.

Homemade peach creamsicles

What could be better than homemade ice-cream treat? These are easy, delicious and super healthy. Juicy peaches with a swirls of real, fresh cream and a little bit of condensed milk will sure satisfy your sweet tooth. Fresh peaches are a great source of antioxidants, vitamin C, and minerals such as potassium, so while these end up being a late summer staple in my home- it is one that you can feel good about giving to your kids too! Enjoy your sweet summer guys 🙂
