Tiramisu with Coffee Syrup & Raspberry Compote
I don’t know if I am the only one feeling completely lost this time of the year? I mean not depressed or upset…just lost. It became a real tragedy for me with the beginning of the semester to wake up at 6 a.m. and this is not the worst thing! Now there are again a lot stuff to deal with and I can not feel myself free to do whatever I want and what is the most important – whenever I want. Summertime was carefree. I could devote myself to blog, which became such a big part of my life (I couldn’t even dream about it and didn’t expect it for sure!!). Just within three month I have been absorbed, fascinated and became obsessed with the world of blogging. Sometimes it seems to me unrequited, but when you read that only one comment, it makes you smile for the rest of the day, it inspires more than any super fancy cookbook. And then I realize that it is worse it. Every single minute spend making up the recipe, baking, taking photos, editing, writing the post (not in the native language!!). It is worse it!
Most of the time we do not follow our dream. We live as it is “supposed to be” and most of the time it doesn’t make us happy. I know, I know…there are some social standards. Children go to school, young people attend colleges and universities, adults go to work…and blah blah blah. But sooner or later we become prisoner of the system – robots that don’t even have dreams, not even speaking of chasing these dreams. Of course precious few will stand out from the crowd. And not everyone needs it. But just don’t lose yourself.
Anyway, I assume you are here for the recipe?
