Homemade Marzipan Potatoes

Hi guys!

Santa is coming… I was so busy planning for Christmas I almost forgot my favorite part of St. Nicholas: Marzipan! How could I forget? Sure, my Christmas Desserts are important. As is the wrapping paper that matches the bows I bought. But I do want to take a day or two off to enjoy some homemade Marzipan Potatoes ๐Ÿ˜‰ It’s so easy to make you really don’t have a proper excuse.

Mummy Brownies for Halloween

Hi guys!

I haven’t been abducted by ghosts or black cats. I was busy trying some Halloween recipes for you! And I kinda took a week off. Sometimes you just need to go offline for a while. Get in touch with that inner you or catch up with some friends.
Or series in my case…

Series? Don’t you have to bake something? Yes. Yes, I do. But my dishwasher didn’t feel the same way. He broke down on Saturday. So “Sundays are for baking” suddenly changed to “Sundays are for cleaning”, dish washing and dish washing ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I think you can imagine how I felt after that so baking was the last thing on my mind that day because I really didn’t want to do some dish washing again… So instead, I binge-watched Pretty Little liars on Netflix which was the perfect alternative because I’m now almost at the end! Yay!

But I do have a Halloween recipe for you today! It’s cute, not aggressive and perfect to make with the kids: Mummy Brownies!

Chocolate Chip Apple Cake

Hi guys!

Who likes apples? I do! I don’t care how apples are used, I love every recipe with them.
But the way I like them most, is in a cake. Haha who knew :p

I love a simple Apple Cake but I wanted to add a little something. The Boyfriend wasn’t feeling so well last week so he had the final say since he wanted a cake so bad. He went for the Apple Cake and I added some chocolate chips ๐Ÿ™‚ Because chocolate always makes you feel better ๐Ÿ˜‰

3 Fabulous Brownie Recipes for Chocolate Day

Hi guys!

Tomorrow might be one of my favorite days… Chocolate Day! It’s not the same as my favorite, official, holiday (you know which one that is, don’t you?) but still. If there was a rule that it was okay (when is it not) to eat chocolate all day long, I would definitely obey.

I was dreaming about what to make for Chocolate Day and the answer was quite easy: Brownies! I find Brownies to be the BEST option ever if you’re looking for something that screams chocolate. You can also go for a regular chocolate bar, but where’s the fun in that? If you make brownies however, you have the taste of divinity (and chocolate) AND the smell of divinity (and chocolate)! It makes my house smell so cozy ^^.

To celebrate chocolate Day, I’m sharing 3 fabulous Brownie recipes with you! We’ll go from ‘normal’ to ‘over the top’ ๐Ÿ˜‰

Tiramisu Cupcakes

Hi guys!

I’m sharing another Tiramisu recipe today. In Cupcake costume! How cool is that?! ๐Ÿ˜‰

My ultimate example when it comes to Cupcakes is Cupcake Jemma from Crumbs & Doilies, UK. I love watching her YouTube video’s and I’m dying to visit the shop whenever I get back to London some day. Hopefully next year.

So I’m guessing you guys can already figure out whose original recipe this is ๐Ÿ˜‰

Tiramisu Cupcakes. It’s a Cupcake, with a Tiramisu flavor. It really is as simple as that. The Cupcake has a slight espresso flavor (very subtle) and a yummy espresso filling. That piece of heaven is topped with a smooth mascarpone buttercreme and sprinkled with cocoa powder. Drooling yet?

No-Bake Tiramisu Cheesecake

Hi guys!

I’m a fan of Tiramisu. It used to be different: I don’t drink coffee, so I always assumed I’d hate Tiramisu since it has coffee in it… Silly, I know. But my eyes opened in time to learn to love this yummy Italian treat. Many people say it’s their favorite dessert and I can’t blame them ๐Ÿ™‚

I’ve made Tiramisu Ice Cream before and now I wanted to try a Tiramisu Cheesecake. Oh. My. God. Why haven’t I done this before? It’s heaven. Truly!

July Favorites 2017

Hi guys!

I do hope your August is going better than mine. Well, I’m talking about the weather. My August started off great. I’ve been co-hosting at Fiesta Friday, made some new and yummy recipes (coming up soon) and I’ve planned some fun trips. So yeah. My August will be great. How about yours?

But that weather though… It feels like Autumn. Nothing but rain here. It’s depressing. Summer came quickly but it looks like it has already dissapeared… I hope the sun comes back soon.

What cheers me up in these dark days you ask? My July Favorites do! I have a yummy list of recipes for you that will make you smile, but mostly make you drool ๐Ÿ˜‰

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˜‰
