Hi guys!

I’ve been so busy lately, I completely forgot about my favorites in May! *slaps her head*
So this edition will be a compilation of May and June Favorites. Because they’re all worth seeing so I couldn’t leave them out.

As always, the favorites are listed in a random order.

Are you guys ready for some Summer inspiration?

Homemade Speculoos Ice Cream with Mamita’s Bakeries

Hi guys!

I promised you another Ice Cream recipe and I actually think this one is even better than the Stracciatella Ice Cream recipe ๐Ÿ˜ฎ (almost can’t believe I’m writing this).

What makes this Speculoos Ice Cream so good? The speculoos! I had the chance to try Mamita’s Bakeries’ speculoos and it is just so good! I’ve always been a fan of speculoos, but I never liked the super spiced ones. You know, so full of spices it becomes a different kind of cookie. At least, that’s what I think. Mamita’s Bakeries has a more spiced speculoos than the famous one we probably all know and I don’t need to mention. But the good thing – no great thing even! – is that this speculoos is just perfect. I mean it! It has that yummy crunch and a more profound speculoos taste, without it becoming something different. I guess you’ll just have to taste one to understand what I’m trying to say here.

I’ll tell you all about Mamita’s Bakeries in a second but first: Ice Cream Time!

Yummy Stracciatella Ice Cream without ice cream maker

Hi guys!

It’s sunny outside! That calls for some yummy homemade Ice Cream!

Today, we’re making my absolute favorite Ice Cream flavour: Stracciatella! I know, Brownie or Cookie Dough Ice Cream is delicious as well but I really prefer Stracciatella. Australian Ice Cream has the best Stracciatella in my eyes but I did hope this recipe from Koken Op Hakken could live up to it. That way I can make it myself. All Summer long ๐Ÿ˜‰

Coconut Brownies

Hi guys!

Am I going too far with the Brownie love? Maybe. Do I regret it? Nope.
I promise some totally different recipes on the blog soon. Wouldn’t want to bore or scare away the anti-chocolate people. If you guys would exist. But seriously, let me know if you hate chocolate. That way I can adapt my recipes to your needs and come closer to my goal of world satisfaction ๐Ÿ˜‰ Oh wait, am I supposed to say world peace now?

Anyways, chocolate it is. But not just any kind of chocolate. Trying different things with my classic (and super delicious) Brownie recipe, I came across a Coconut version! It is such a good combo! My family and colleagues can agree on this one ๐Ÿ™‚

Chocolate Cheesecake

Hi guys!

I’m sharing a fantastic dessert from The Boyfriend today. On Wednesday, I tried to make a Chocolate Mousse Cheesecake. I failed. Massively. The Boyfriend felt so bad for me, he made this divine Chocolate Cheesecake! That’s what I call true love. Especially because The Boyfriend has nothing with desserts. He did it just for me โค

Hazelnut Brownies

Hi guys!

Last week, I made some Brownies for my colleagues at work. One of them asked me if I had ever made them with nuts since he likes it so much. Negative. I have never ever made anything with nuts before. Except for almond flour but that doesn’t count. So, nuts huh? Challenge accepted! I must say they looked pretty damn good when I took them out of the oven.

First time ever using nuts, I think I may have exaggerated a little on the nutty intentions… But it was supposed to be nutty, so I think I definitely nailed that one xD

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 ๐Ÿ˜‰

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 ๐Ÿ˜‰
