Cheeky Monkey Gastropub: My favorite place in Malta

Hi guys!

I just got back from a great holiday in Malta with the boyfriend. It was nice to change environments and just relax for a while. We visited many places, saw incredible buildings and – of course – ate lots of yummy meals. But one place will stay on my mind forever: Cheeky Monkey Gastropub. We were in Malta for 5 days and we’ve been there every single day. Can you believe it?! So yeah, Cheeky Monkey definitely is my favorite place on the island ๐Ÿ˜‰

Making Donuts with Dr.Oetker

Hi guys!

I think it’s been a while. At least a week. The beginning of the year was crazy, we had a 2-days event for work and then a business trip came along (forgot to take my laptop with me – of course). So yes, I missed my kitchen and I missed my blog. But I haven’t been gone for long ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m still amazed at how much I like to bake and blog seeing it’s only been a week since my last blogpost and I missed it.

To start the new baking year off right, I immediately baked something I’ve been wanting to do for years. I bought myself a donut baking tin! The day after, some yummy donuts were born. Why I waited a whole day? Because I didn’t have enough flour and the stores were already closed. So typical…

Chocolate Speculoos Truffles

Hi guys!

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas.

You probably have 1 more big feast to go: New Year’s Eve!
What better treat to serve your guests than homemade Chocolate Speculoos Truffles? ๐Ÿ˜€

Some only use Nutella or any other hazelnut based paste to fill the Truffles, but I like it a bit crunchy so I added crunchy speculoos paste as well ๐Ÿ™‚ It gives your Truffles a little extra ๐Ÿ˜‰ Yummmmm!

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 ๐Ÿ˜€

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)
