Christmas Polar Bear Cookies

Hi guys!

I’m beyond excited for today’s blogpost. It’s almost Christmas and these Polar Bear Cookies are the cutest cookies I’ve ever made AND perfect for Christmas 😀 I know, you thought my Little Speculoos Men were cute but these Polar Bears take “cute” to a whole new level! I’m actually pretty proud of the result.

Christmas Buche / Stollen

Hi guys!

I’m beginning to freak out. Just a little. I had all these Christmas recipes I wanted to try but there’s just not enough time to make all of them! I should have taken this week off… Next year I might. One week to bake bake bake and bake! No work, no distractions, just one focus: Christmas. Sounds like a plan, right? Although I didn’t have that much quality time with my kitchen, I did manage to make a little Christmas stollen! Yay 😀

Merry Christmas: say it with Neuhaus chocolates

Hi guys!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…
9 days ’till Christmas! Can you believe it??!

I must admit I’d rather have a few extra days before Christmas because I have way too much baking ideas for waaaaaay too little time. But I guess that’s with most of us Christmas freaks & foodies…

I actually wanted to write a post about all kinds of delicious treats to give your beloved family and friends for Christmas but that’s not gonna happen. Instead, I’m writing a post that is completely dedicated to my favorite chocolate makers: Neuhaus. (sorry to all others, still love you guys)

Something delicious yet easy and fast. Oh you do? In that case I think I might have the perfect recipe! Today’s Apple Crumble is super easy to make and a real treat. I’m a huge crumble fan myself. I could eat all of them 😮

Homemade Christmas Speculoos Cookies

Hi guys!

We’re getting closer and closer to Christmas and I promised you some Christmas recipes. This Homemade Speculoos recipe might be one of the best cookie recipes I’ve ever made. It’s the family recipe from my boyfriend. Now you know what they say, right? Whatever she makes, a grandma makes best! It’s the absolute truth ^^

If you can get your hands on some Christmas cookie cutters, you’ll have the cutest Christmas cookies ever! The Boyfriend made the Speculoos and I made them into Christmas ones 😉 He said I could choose which cookie cutters I wanted to use so it was pretty obvious I went for the whole “cute Christmas” look 😉

November Favorites

Hi guys!

It’s finally December… You have no idea how long I’ve been wanting it to be December. Ever since my birthday passed by I guess. That was in March xD Our Christmas tree is up, lights installed and cute filt snowflake and reindeer decorations all over the place. Candles in star or tree shapes, snow flake decorations on the window and a singing Christmas dog. I LOVE it!
I know Christmas is actually all about Christ but this is the one holiday I really don’t mind is so commercial.
Oh, I love buying my family and friends gifts too! Deciding on what to give them, wrapping it myself (of course) and then enjoying those smiling faces 🙂 After that, I give them a complete sweets overload.
If I had an endless budget to host a Christmas party for my friends or family, I swear they’d have enough Christmas spirit for the next five years xD It would be too much. I know it would be.

BUT that’s still a few weeks away, unfortunately.

To cheer you up, I’m bringing you my November Favorites!

Hi guys!

Earlier this week, Dr.Oetker hosted another wonderful event with a cooking demo by pastry chef Sven Coryn and a bake-off between bloggers. The theme? Family recipes. So I brought my Dad 🙂 Together, we made some yummy little Apple Cakes with real star quality 😉

Marshmallow Brownies

Hi guys!

I’m so happy to be back in my kitchen and back here with you guys. I knew I loved baking and blogging, but I honestly didn’t know I’d feel such an urge for it when unable to do so. I had a little injury on my wrist, making it quite impossible for me to write, let alone bake something. But that’s over now and I’m back with a BAM if I may say so myself 😉

Easy & delicious Butter Cookies

Hi guys!

As we’re approaching December, many people have begun their Christmas preppings. I won’t make any real Christmas recipes until the first of December, but these yummy Butter Cookies might be part of our Christmas celebration.

They are easy to make, delicious with a cup of coffee or tea and perfect for royal icing decorations! I’m still practicing my cookie decorating skills so I won’t be able to show you awesome looking cookies. But I can show you the cookies themselves, which are the true stars in this show 😉

Flavr.be: taste tested & approved!

Hi guys!

There’s a new kid in town! Forget about Hello Fresh and other groceries delivery services. FLAVR does it better. They have a community of hobby chefs who cook just for you! All you need to do is find a dish you like in your neighbourhood, order and go pick it up. How cool is that?!

Lucky for me, my collegue Tinne is member of FLAVR and she was happy to let me taste test her yummy dish to get to know FLAVR 🙂

The idea behind FLAVR: “FLAVR goes back to the roots of the authentic, home-cooked meal through a unique food-sharing platform. We enable everyone to order and provide meals among each other.”
