Red Velvet Cake

For my darling's birthday, I baked a Red Velvet Cake (see recipe here). I knew it was a special cake, but hey, it was almost a chemistry experiment! There was food coloring all over the place and the mixture of vinegar with baking soda at the end, wow, impressive... Anyway, I'm glad I made it, it is dellllicious and the color is indeed very intriguing (some say it tastes a little cherryish, even though there are no cherries AT ALL in it ;-)

Corner View: Typical Architecture From Around Here

That was not easy... Architecture in Québec is a little all over the place. Here are a few pictures I took in a village not too far from home where hundred year old houses are treated with respect... and color!

From Me, To Me...

A gift I'll offer myself very soon:

Corner View: Miniature Worlds

Guess who's the boss of this miniature world?
A collection of miniatures, found objects that all have in common the fact that they're tiny. Inspired by a roomate I had first year at Ottawa University. Hi Françoise wherever you are!

Corner View, next week: Front door (I have so many pictures, which one will I pick?)

My name is Dominique Plourde and I am a certified Home Staging specialist, how can I help you?
Great logo, hey?
Olivier Bruel made it for me.

Corner View: Coffee Companion

Let's start with the most important thing: I am not a coffee drinker. At all. In fact, I don't drink anything hot. But if... If I were to drink coffee, of course I'd accompany it with one of the marvelous breads made by Claude especially since his bakery class at l'Académie culinaire (a great gift idea from Roxane).
