When I found Manu’s blog Dessert First I was thrilled. Not only because she makes amazing things but also because she lives in Brasil. I had the amazing experience when I was in high school to be a foreign exchange student to Brasil. I went the summer between my junior and senior year. I know it’s totally cliche to say it changed my life… but it did. It was an amazing trip! And not just because Brasil is a beautiful country, the family that I stayed with was… hmmmm, what’s even the word? Amazing? Fantastic? Awesome? I don’t think any of these words really fits them. They were the best part of my experience and I will never, ever forget them. I stayed in Vila Velha, Espirito Santo. Here’s where it is. Awesome, right?
I had to convert the measurements because they were in grams. This was harder than you might think. (I’m not a math teacher) =o) But I think I did a good job.
