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 πŸ˜‰ 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 πŸ˜‰

Raspberry Cheesecake Bites

Hi guys!

Dessert comes in all possible sizes. These Raspberry Cheesecake Bites might be the smallest ones I’ve ever made. But small desserts can be as yummy as large ones. In fact, these little cuties are like a kiss from an angel. Heaven on your tongue. Especially if you cover them in chocolate. Yummmm.

These Raspberry Cheesecake Bites could make the perfect dessert after a BBQ, whereΒ you’ve possibly ate too much to handle a ‘normal size’ cheesecake πŸ˜‰

Apple Cinnamon & Honey Cake

Hi guys!

I know the combination of apple and cinnamon does make us think of Autumn. But I don’t really care. I just love apples and cinnamon and I can eat it in any season I want. Right? πŸ™‚ Or is it really not done to make these kind of recipes in Summer?

Anyway, the boyfriend absolutely loved these little cakes filled with love πŸ˜‰ Now isn’t that the most important?

Belgian Red Devils Cupcakes

Hi guys!

Okay, Belgium didn’t play very well last game against Italy. Let’s admit it: it was painful to watch. I know they tried, but they just weren’t good enough. Our Belgian Red Devils need to step up their game and I’m convinced these Belgian Red Devils Cupcakes will help them win tomorrow!

I shared these babies with you before, when Belgium played at the World Championship. I believe they’ll bring our team good luck since they did great then. So now they’ll have to be great tomorrow as well! These cupcakes are perfect to make with the kids. So let’s all bake and cheer for Belgium!

You may want to set a slice aside for yourself because once you show this cheesecake to your guests, it will be gone in no time! Like no more then 5 minutes. For real.

Bread Pudding: The Perfect Dish with Leftovers!

Hi guys!

Even though Bread Pudding is made from leftovers, I’d always go for it if I have the chance. ALWAYS. I do buy other things at the bakery too but if they have Bread Pudding, I have to buy it. Why? It’s so cheap (!) and so good!

In the past 22 years, I’ve never attempted making it myself. Why oh why! I swear, if I had known how freakin’ easy this is, I’d been making it every time I had some bread left. Yes, even when I was just 4 years old. I’d simply asked my mom. πŸ˜‰

There’s only one decision you have to make and the answer is pretty obvious: with or without chocolate? Hahaha don’t tell me you even have to think about that!

Chocolate Chip Cake Mix Cookies

Hi guys!

Did you ever had that craving for cookies and cake at the same time? I dure did! But there’s a perfect solution for this first world problem: cake mix cookies!

I discovered it at Moments with MandiΒ and I just had to try them. Crunchy on the outside, shaped like a cookie and soft on the inside like a cake. Love it! I know it’s not as good as having both chocolate chip cookies and cake but it really is a perfect solution on a lazy tv-night when the stores are closed and you don’t want to bake both things. AND if the cravings get so serious you are about to die if you don’t get cookies and cake. I mean it, it can happen.

In that case, don’t call 911, just start baking! πŸ˜‰
