September Favorites

Hi guys!

It was about time I shared my September Favorites with you. You guys waved Summer goodbye whilst pulling out the cinnamon, apples and pumpkins. I didn’t mind that quick switch between salads and pumpkin recipes. I guess I just like Fall desserts better πŸ˜‰

#1: Chocolate Mocha Cake

August Favorites

Hi guys!

Another month passed by… Which means I have 5 new awesome dishes to share with you from fellow food bloggers! Yay!

September always feels like the month of change. You know, new chances at school. Maybe changing school? Changing your classes? I used to look forward to September. Learning new things, seeing my friends again, … I really never minded going to school. But I did feel happy when it was over and I became part of the working world. But this September, I know I’m going to miss school. Just because it really wasn’t that bad. As a teen, I never believed people saying school was the best time of their lives. I always thought working and not studying all the time, would be better. But I can tell you I do miss school. A little bit. How about you?

Let’s forget about school and take a look at this month’s 5 favorites!

#1: Classic Creme BrΓ»lΓ©e with pommegranate

June Favorites

Hi guys!

The 1st of July… Oh boy. Before you know it, it’ll be Christmas again. Time flies when you’re having fun, they say. I guess I’m having loads of fun then. Once Monday morning has passed, Friday is there in no time. It’s insane.

In three days, a lot of you will be celebrating the 4th of July. Since I’m from Belgium, I won’t be making any red, white & blue or stars & stripes themed desserts. But I do wish you a very happy 4th!

I know our 5 June Favorites will make you feel like partying πŸ˜‰

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 πŸ™‚

  • 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.

  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 190Β°C.
  10. Place the cookies on a sheet of baking paper on a baking plate and bake for 15 minutes at 190Β°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 starsΒ (the ones with the holes).
  14. Place the top stars on top of the jam.
  15. Serve! πŸ˜€

Snuggle together with a fluffy blanket and some tea or hot chocolate and I’ve already forgotten about the crappy wether πŸ™‚

Marzipan Potatoes

Hi guys!

You already know I can’t wait until Christmas is here but there is one thing I absolutely LOVE about this time of the year and St. Nicholas: marzipan! I’m addicted to it and I swear, I could eat a whole package at once!

Sooooo I went looking for a recipe… I wish I hadn’t because it’s way too easy! I thought if it would be very hard to make, I’d certainly never make it again but it’s just sooooo easy! You can barely call it a recipe πŸ˜‰

It was the lovely Annelies from Een Lepeltje Lekkers who made this last year and it’s so good I didn’t adapt it at all. So thank you Annelies for these yummy Marzipan Potatoes!

What we need:

  • 150 g powder sugar
  • 150 g almond powder
  • 2 tablespoons of crystal sugar
  • 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder
  • 1 egg white

How to:

  1. Mix together the almond powder and the powder sugar.
  2. Add the egg white.
  3. Mix together with a spoon until the mixture begins to stick together.
  4. Blend with your hand(s) until it becomes a ball.

  7. Put together sugar and cocoa powder in a bowl.
  8. Put the little marzipan balls in the bowl and start rolling them around. Do this one little ball at a time.
  9. Place the Marzipan Potatoes on a plate so your kids, guests, family, … can attack!
