Baffo: The BEST pizza in Glasgow!

Hi guys!

I promise this is the last post about my trip to Scotland but I have to share this one. Really. It’s super important that I tell you this because I don’t want you to miss out on the BEST pizza in Glasgow (and beyond). If you visit Glasgow, this is the place to be for some freakin’ good pizza 😀 It’s freshly made 😉

Must-do’s while in Scotland: from drinking to eating and dancing.

Hi guys!

I told you about Bibi’s Bakery in Edingburgh last week. Today I will tell you about the must-do’s while in Scotland 🙂

Must-do #1: Whisky tasting!

To be honest, I don’t like Whisky. At all. But I do believe it is something you must try in Scotland. It is the country of Whisky after all.

There are many ways to have yourself a Whisky tasting:

  • Buy some bottles and taste them yourself
  • Go to a Whisky tasting
  • Drink a Whisky in the pub
  • Have dinner with Whisky

I would prefer the latter. Not just because it involves any eating (actually yes, that is the main reason) but because you don’t have to drink that many Whisky’s if you really don’t like them. Trying any of the other options could become a bit expensive if the Whisky isn’t your cup of tea.

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 😉

Antwerpen Proeft 2016

Hi guys!

I went to Antwerpen Proeft last week. I was super excited because lots of famous Belgian restaurants and chefs were coming and I just knew it would be fun. Besides, you can’t miss out on such a food event being a food blogger, right?

The boyfriend and I started with exploring the different stands because we had to buy coupons and we knew we couldn’t try each and every one of them so we had to decide what to try and what not to. For me, that, obviously, wasn’t such a big deal because I almost only wanted to try desserts xD Oh boy, shame on me. But hey, someone has got to try them right! And the boyfriend doesn’t have such a sweettooth like I do 🙂 So I happily sacrificed myself 😉

December Favorites & a question for you

Hi guys!

Is the 19th of January still a time to post December favorites? Absolutely! Yes, I usually post them the first blogging day of the new month buuuuuut I went skiing so that wasn’t really possible :p Now you also know why I ‘dissapeared’ for a while. I know lots of you keep blogging during your holidays but I took two weeks off. No social media, no phone, no nothing except for my family and our holiday 🙂 It was awesome! I’ll probably share some pictures on my social channels later.

So now that my batteries are fully charged again – not that they were empty – I have a question for you. Yes, right now before we get to the yummy part of this post because now your brains aren’t distracted yet 😉

Christmas Jam Cookies

Hi guys!

Nothing says Christmas more than Christmas Cookies… I’m sorry but you can’t say you’ve celebrated Christmas if you haven’t had any cookies to go with it. You just can’t.

Sooooo I’ve made some yummy Jam Cookies! They can be used for several occasions because they aren’t Christmas exclusive as you can see but these star shaped cookies fit Christmas perfectly as well 🙂

IMG_2920

What we need:

  • 250 g butter
  • 165 g sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 250 g flour
  • pinch of salt
  • raspberry jam (or any kind of jam you like)
  • cookie cutters in 2 sizes
  • plastic foil
  • baking plate
  • baking paper

Christmas Jam Cookies

How to:

  1. Mix together butter and sugar until fluffy.
  2. Add the egg yolk.
  3. Sift the flour and add it together with the salt to the mixture.
  4. Mix until everything gets combined and it forms a real dough.
  5. Wrap the dough in plastic foil and store for 30 – 60 minutes in the fridge.
  6. Remove the foil and roll out the dough.
  7. Cut out as much stars as you can.
  8. Cut out a smaller piece in half of the stars (these will be your top stars).
  9. Heat the oven at 190°C.
  10. Place the cookies on a sheet of baking paper on a baking plate and bake for 15 minutes at 190°C.
  11. Let the cookies cool on the baking plate for a bit until placing them on a rack to cool completely.
  12. Take your ‘full’ stars and put some jam on them.
  13. Sprinkle some powdered sugar on the top stars (the ones with the holes).
  14. Place the top stars on top of the jam.
  15. Serve! 😀

Merry Christmas!

Have a delicious day ❤

Christmas Wishlist 2015

Hi guys!

2 more nights and Saint Nicholas is here. And then comes Christmas! 😀 As every one of you do I also have a little wishlist for Christmas. No, I’m not putting all the books I want on this list because I wouldn’t want you to be still reading this list tomorrow morning… 😉

#1: Sushi Kit

 

easy-sushi-kit-preparation-maki-sushi

I would love to make my own Sushi one day 🙂 I promise to let you guys know how I did when I do ^^

#2: Booze Mixes

melange-mojito-fraisemelange-blue-lagoon

I usually don’t drink. Maybe some wine at a party or dinner but that’s all. But I saw these cute mixes for Strawberry Mojito and Blue Lagoon and I’m tempted to try these out. Or to just put them in our vitrine because to never take out because they look so cool :p

#3: Tea Case with healthy Kusmi Tea

coffret-les-thes-bien-etre

I love tea. Don’t you think this case looks great? I’d love to have this one, even if I wouldn’t like the tastes. It would look great in our kitchen 🙂 But I bet it tastes great too! And the teas are all supposed to be healthy so that’s an extra plus ^^

#4: Donut Box

coffret-donuts

Do I really have to give a reason for this one? Come on…

#5: Mug Cake Set

coffret-mugcake

Don’t you just love these cute mugs? 😀 I’ve tried and tested some Mug Cakes before and the relationship just didn’t work. But I’m pretty convinced they would taste so much better in these mugs! What do you say, shall I give it a try? :p

Every item on my list can be found at Alice Délice, by far my favorite cooking store!

If you could have anything in the world, no matter how expensive, what would it be?

Have a delicious day ❤

Lidl Winestasting

Hi guys!

I was invited to the Lidl winetasting last Tuesday.
Lidl presented their fall collection of wines, accompanied by some awesome little dishes from Gaétan Colin. Gaétan is chef at Jaloa, a gastronomic restaurant in Belgium. It was an honor to be served his food because Gaétan has won several awards for his culinary creations!

Many people see Lidl as the low-cost supermarket. Those people think Lidl offers minor quality products. But that is NOT true! I’ve tasted their wines and I really liked them! Besides, they have great cookies and yoghurt 😉

Lidl wants to be known for its fine wines at very reasonable prices. Their cheapest wine costs €3,99. Their most expensive wine can be bought for only €15,49. I think those are very fair prices! This Fall, they’re all from France.

My evening with Lidl started off perfectly. The event took place at the beautiful B&B Maison Margueritte in Brussels. Not too far from the centre and located in a gorgeous building! I love how the B&B looks :)Take a look at their website to see how it looks like 🙂 (My camera couldn’t really handle the somewhat darker room)

When everyone had arrived, itwas time for a little introduction and info about the wines we were going to taste. This speech was held by Harry De Schepper, wine journalist.

Lidl winetasting

Time to bring on the wines! And the delicious food 🙂
I’ll give you a little overview of the different food & wines.

Now I’ll present the wines individually to give you a better idea of what wines we’ve had and where they come from etc 🙂

LIDL_Ambiance

Lidl Winetasting 01First one is the Crément d’Alsace AOP brut rosé. This one was by far my favourite! I love rosé wines and this bubbly nephew of it was absolutely delicious. I know I’m going to buy some bottles of this one. Only €8,49 per bottle.

 

Second wine was the white Pouilly Fumé 2014. 100% Sauvignon Blanc from the Loire.Loire, Pouilly Fumé 2014-7,99 euro Perfect to serve with fish or with a veggie dish. €7,99 per bottle. I might go get me some of this one as well 🙂

Bourgogne, Pouilly Fuissé 2014-11,99 euro

A second white wine was the Pouilly-Fuissé 2014 from the region of Pouilly-Fuissé. 100% Chardonnay and €11,99 per bottle.

Bordeaux, La Chapelle d’Escurac 2012-6,99 euro - kopie

 

 

Moving on to the red wines with this La Chapelle d’Esurac 2012 from the region of Médoc. 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 50% Merlot. We had some entrecote to eat with is because this wine is perfect for red meat. €6,99 per bottle.

Bordeaux, Dauphin du Château Lafargue 2012-11,69 euro - kopieThe second red wine was the Dauphin du Château Lafargue 2012 from the region of Pessac-Léognan. 92% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc. This wine has the aroma of plums and dades which makes it a perfect wine to go with wild meat such as duck. This one is a bit more expensive, €11,69 per bottle.

Bordeaux, Château du Grand Soussans 2012-13,99 euroThe third red and final wine was the Château du Grand Soussans 2012 from Margaux. 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc. This wine is also best served with red or wild meat. €13,99 per bottle.

 

I’ve had a really great night with the wines, the foods and of course also with my fellow blogging friends! The first two wines I’ve presented you were my favorites of the day. I think I’m just a white/rosé person 😉

You may run into me next time you visit the wine section at Lidl :p

Have a delicious day ❤
