It’s the first of December and that means that the festive season is now upon us! I’m very excited to watch all the Christmas films (which I admittedly already started doing in November), eat all the Christmas sweets and listen to all the Christmas music.

Recipe: Mini Lemon Curd Tarts

Remember when I made my own lemon curd for the first time a few weeks ago, and then used it in a delicious lemon curd layer cake? I didn’t stop there, because later that week I also ended up making some very tasty lemon curd tarts. They’re very tiny, but no less delicious for it. […]

Recipe: Spiced Chocolate Chip Cookies

Autumn is here in full force in the Netherlands! This is my absolute favourite time of the year: that small window of the year when the leaves turn yellow and red and everything looks like something out of a storybook. I love it so much and it’s definitely something that’s bringing me a lot of […]

Reading The Lord of the Rings for the First Time

For the longest time, ‘reading The Lord of the Rings‘ was one of those things on my bucket list that I definitely intended to do at some point – but definitely not in the near future. It was intimidating and seemed like it would take up a lot of time (true), so I just put it […]
