Dinner at Hofstede de Blaak

Hi guys!

A little while ago we went to Tilburg, The Netherlands. Dinner spot that evening was Hofstede de Blaak. I won’t waste too many words. Let’s take a culinary walk together;)

This is how the building and the terrace looks like:

We started with two appetizers. The one on the right is a tomato-chorizo appetizer. the one on the left has fresh herring in it.

Poké Puff inspired Pokémon Lemon Raspberry Cupcakes

Hi guys!

Pokémon. It had to be on the blog eventually, right? With the game being such a hype and Pokémon desserts popping up everywhere, I had to make one too. Besides, who doesn’t love Pikachu, Charmander or Squirtle? Or maybe, just maybe, you fancied Ash or Misty😉

Ben & Jerry’s: The story behind the delicious ice cream

Hi guys!

A while ago, I went to an event from Ben & Jerry’s in Brussels. I had my very first Ben & Jerry’s ice cream and was immediately sold. I was such a fan of the famous Cookie Dough that I made these Cookie Dough Brownies, inspired by the ice cream. Since that night, I’m 100% team Ben & Jerry’s!

Isn’t this the cutest ice cream cup ever?

Mini Biscoff Cake for Mother’s Day

Hi guys!

Happy Mother’s Day to all wonderful moms! Most of my blogging friends have already shared their Mother’s Day posts earlier this year. But, as always, Antwerp does things differently😉 We celebrate Mother’s Day at the Catholic holiday. Because we’re all saints x’D In 1913, a liberal alderman from Antwerp declared the 15th of August as the Day of Mothers because Maria was the mother of all mothers and this was her holiday. A year later, the American President Wilson decided that Mother’s Day would take place every second Sunday in May. Many countries and cities followed the American idea, except for Antwerp. We still celebrate our moms on the 15th of August and we always will🙂

I was breaking my head about what kind of dessert I should make my mom. I figured it needed to be a cake. But what kind of cake? And what kind of shape? Did I have to make a heart shaped cake because I love my mom so much? Which I really do! Or should it be something with flowers because that’s what moms like? It took me a week to find the perfect Mother’s Day Cake for my mom. And how perfect it is. I gave her a mini Biscoff Cake so she can have it all for herself without having to eat cake for the next 5 days (she wouldn’t mind eating this cake all week though) AAAAND she LOVES Biscoff cookies! Bingo!

Soft & Subtle Caramel Cupcakes

Hi guys!

I’ve just recently discovered the concept ‘partybox’ and I absolutely love it! And by that, I truly mean LOVE it. If it is was for me, we could skip the whole year (except Christmas ’cause I love that holiday too much) until the 30th of March next year😀 I’ve already picked out the theme, venue, menu and guestlist😉 *Oh wow, she’s gone crazy…*
That’s one way of looking at it :p

Pom Pom Partybox has the cutest things ever. From napkins to plates to glitter confetti and cupcake wrappers. The webshop opens tomorrow (August 10) but I got to see and shoot some of the stuff before😉

Since parties aren’t really parties without some yummy food, I thought Cupcakes would make the perfect treat. These Caramel Cupcakes have the fluffiest buttercreme and that subtle caramel flavor.

July Favorites

Hi guys!

Happy August! Summer holidays are halfway through here in Belgium. Which means you still need to keep the kids busy for three more weeks. Summer camps are always a good idea but they may have gone to one already and now they’ll stay home for the rest of the Summer. Maybe you could drop them off at the grandparents? That’s fun! Or you can search some other Summer activities. Ever thought about taking some time off and bake something with the kids? These July Favorites can definitely give you some inspiration!

#1: Pineapple Upside Down Cake

Brownie Chocolate Ice Cream

Hi guys!

This ice cream recipe might be the easiest one you’ll ever find! I got inspired by Ben & Jerry’s. You can tell, right?

I absolutely love this ice cream flavor! It has brownie chunks in it, chocolate chips aboard and of course a yummy chocolate flavor. I’m actually really proud of my first invented ice cream flavor, although I was inspired of course.
