Simple Chocolate Cupcakes -For A Great Day-

saltybiscotti food photography blog

I should post these Chocolate cupcake photos around Valentine`s, but I was too occupied with my little son who turned two!! (I cannot believe how quickly time passes by), the difficulties of my pregnancy and my work at the office, that it was impossible for me to do anything else.

About a month later though and being away from office, my schedule starts to feel a little lighter. Being in the seventh month now, I feel that I have just a minute to cool down from my crazy daily rhythm, focus on my new baby son coming soon and perhaps find some time for myself, to be creative with my food photography and my cooking love again.

Other than that, life around Athens is the same, with the weather getting finally kinder to us and our well-known Greek sun visiting our little town again. It is so relaxing to enjoy your breakfast in the veranda without getting cold.

I guess you are pretty busy too, but find some time to try those delicious and so simple to make chocolate cupcakes. Chocolate has the power to turn your day into a great one!! No? πŸ™‚
