It was a feel-good Sunday even though London seemed miserably grey and unattractive during the entire day. Yet, spending a few hours with my two friends, Marce and Jens – well this just made my day! When I meet those two travel enthusiasts, I always have a great time, loads of laughing and great talks over long lasting meals. So, yesterday we giggled, chatted, ate 1,5 kg of roast beef, drank 2 bottles of Rioja, exchanged Peruvian and Polish chicken soup recipes, arranged ceviche cooking class for me, wondered about the Eastern Europe cultural diversity and the legends of Peruvian Inkas. Marce, who is a person behind a young and energetic travel agency Takeme2peru, is absolutely in love with the country of her origin. She has been planning a special trip to Peru for her friends (my peru group travel) already for a couple of months. Everything what she has done so far to make that trip happen, she has done with passion, vigor and fascination. To celebrate Marce’s recent birthday, which I unfortunately missed because my Eastern Europe voyages, and to celebrate the design of her bright new Takeme2peru logo, I decided to make some cookies. Since I know how Peru is close to Marce’s heart, I baked cookies in the colours of the Peruvian national flag: red and white. Luckily, I have come across Mandy Mortimer’s blog lately; btw you will love Mandy’s recipe collection and photographs. Mandy has featured a great sugar cookies with white chocolate recipe. Immediately, when I saw the pictures of her red heart cookies, I madly fall in love with them and knew they would be a hit and a great present for Marce. And I was right – Marce loved her “I ♡ Peru” cookies and for me it was such a joy and fun to knead, roll, cut out and chocolate paint those little sugar babies!
