    You had me at cardamom!! Your combination of raspberry, cardamom and almond sounds perfect. And why haven’t I heard of yuanyang? Definitely ordering this asap!

      It’s weird, isn’t it? But I kind of love it. (Especially now that cloudy days mean excellent photo-taking conditions!) Also, HUGE congrats on taking the bar!!! I hope you’re savoring freedom right now, Joyti!

    You definitely met your goal – these tarts look dainty and gorgeous, Cynthia. I love putting cardamom into my desserts; I’ve paired it with mango and strawberries, but never raspberries – surely need to try that next!

    I love you both so much! Jk that was creepy–I love both of you platonically. And oh so much. And summer recipes–yes please, since Mother Nature is clearly experiencing menopause (hot flashes, anyone? No? Okay). Anyway, so proud of your partnership–off to visit Eva now!

    It has been way too long since I popped over to this lovely space. Your pictures always inspire and soothe me, somehow. The one with the rainy window in the background is divine. Thanks for introducing us to Adventures too!

    Golly these are so beautiful! Cardamom and raspberry, I love it! I don’t bake desserts often… I need to make time for these beauties 🙂 Your photography work continues to progress and refine — I didn’t even know it could be better than it was! Go girl! OK and re: Snowpiercer? When I saw the poster in the IMDB link I thought for SURE it was Michael Fassbender — but hello, Chris Evans? Well isn’t he looking…. lovely 😉 Hahahaha

      Sophie, you’re too sweet! Words like these (oh gosh, progress!) are so meaningful to me — thank you so much. And I lol’ed at your Chris Evans comment!!! hahaha. I know, I was shocked when I found out it was him, too! So different from his squeaky clean Captain America persona! You should watch the movie if you get the chance — he was great!

    Cynthia these little tarts are gorgeous! The flavors you used sound absolutely delicious. I love cardamom but don’t use it enough – I really need to use it more! Going to check out Eva’s blog now!

    Sorry to hear the summer’s been subpar over on your end, Cynthia. What’s happening with the weather?! We usually have cool and rainy summers in Vancouver but it’s been absolutely gorgeous this year (yeah, I’ll stop rubbing it in now). I’m in love with these tarts and your beautiful photos. Heading over to read your guest post and meet Eva!

    The recipe sounds awesome but…I think I’ve fallen in love with the photographs! If I could taste the cake now, I’m sure I’d fall in love with it too! Falling in love is so easy, and I have a boyfriend! 😉

say hello!
