I will not even try to make this (long and complicated) recipe, I will just dream I am having a piece instead. To combine with a nice latte…
I did not know that lyric videos were a thing, until my 10 year-old daughter told me about it! The song “Shape Of You” by Ed Sheeran is on her playlist for sometime now, but I had never watched this video before.
