Pretty in Pink: Raspberry Cupcakes

A few weeks ago I bought a kilo of frozen raspberries for less than 4 euros. You can imagine I was quite pleased with myself! I love raspberries, but they’re always so ridiculously expensive, if you want fresh ones. Even frozen raspberries aren’t very cheap, usually. So, yes, I was very happy with this purchase, to […]

Quick and Easy: Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Cookies

Every year, at the beginning of November, my parents’ church organises a jumble sale to raise money for charity. It’s always loads of fun, because everyone’s working together for a good cause which makes for an amazing atmosphere. Besides selling all kinds of second hand stuff, there’s also a lottery with a wheel of fortune and tons […]

Pear and Berry Crumble and a Birthday

I turned 21 on Tuesday, and of course I needed to bake something for the occasion. What’s a birthday without some home made sweetness to munch on? I had a lovely dinner with my parents, grandparents and aunt on Monday, and made an absolutely delicious crumble for dessert. It included all kinds of berries and […]

Officially Autumn: Speculaas and Chocolate Muffins

Well, summer is definitely over now, so it seems… It’s starting to get dark much earlier, the leaves are changing and, most importantly, it’s getting cold. No more warm, sunny days, my friends. It’s back to warm jumpers and lots of tea. Which is fine by me, to be honest. I’m a sucker for a […]

Banana Chocolate Cake

It’s been a while since I posted a recipe, or anything baking related for that matter. That’s because it’s actually been a while since I did some actual baking. There’s a logical explanation for that, though. It’s summer. Now, for most people that wouldn’t be a reason to stop baking — in fact, many people […]

My First Try At French Macarons

This week, I set myself the challenge of trying to make the ultimate cookie (although calling it “cookie” seems wrong): the French macaron! I’d never made these before, and I spent quite a few days researching the process and watching many Youtube videos to ensure they would come out at least somewhat decent. All of the […]

Nectarine Blueberry Lemon Sponge

This week, the nectarines were on sale at my local supermarket (a kilo for one euro), so of course I took advantage of that! When me and my friends made sangria on Friday, we added one nectarine, which was very tasty, and I figured I could use some of the rest of them for a nice, […]

Banana Walnut Bread

The other day I was scrolling through my old blog posts, and I came across my Christmas post. I love that one, since it makes me all cheerful to remember those two wonderful days. It also made me realise, however, that I never shared the recipe for the Banana Walnut Bread with you! I think […]

Hazelnut Coconut Cookies (Cookie Rookie)

Remember that project I started a few months ago, called Cookie Rookie? No? I barely did, either, to be honest. The last Cookie Rookie attempt dates back to February, and I wasn’t really pleased with how those chocolate chip cookies turned out. However, despite having decided that cookies are perhaps not entirely my thing, I felt […]

Fresh Strawberry Muffins

You know what I think is the best fruit of all? Strawberries. Hands down, without a doubt. They’re just so delicious and mouthwatering! They’re also beautiful and really photogenic! I could go on and on about the amazing qualities of strawberries with lots more exclamation points at the end of each sentence, but I won’t do […]
