Chocolate Ice Cream & Home Made Cones

Chocolate Ice Cream & Home Made Cones

Hey Lovers of all things pretty! I’m back to this (strangely strange) space. Hello, blogosphere, it’s me, the foreigner, just checking in. And I brought chocolate…! To compensate and win you over, you know? Kind of. Lol, no, honestly. I hardly remember how to do this thing called “blogging” anymore. It’s been wayyyy too long...

Matcha Madeleines (on a day off)

Matcha Madeleines (on a day off)

I’m super happy – because today is my day off…! It’s been a while since my last leisurely day, it’s been a while. So I finally get back to blogging a bit. Double yay! Of course, I’m not planning on spending the day doing nothing… No. I’ve got a full schedule. First, I’m going to...

Valentine’s Candy Chocolate Bark

Valentine’s Candy Chocolate Bark

For some of you who care, Valentine’s Day is pretty close. And though I like my fare share of romantic comedies and believe in real life romance and magic, on a day to day basis, too, I only join the V-Day craze for the candy and the chocolates, natrually… #guilty. Hey, what? I’ve already got my...

Chocolate Coconut Stars (& Trees)

Chocolate Coconut Stars (& Trees)

Incredible how fast time goes by… I’ve been meaning to get into Holiday Baking much earlier, but life got in the way. December… Gotta love this season! So many plans, so little time. As it turns out, this Sunday was the first opportunity to simply bake something (not strictly necessary). So I got into the...

Hot Chocolate Bar & Giveaway (closed)

Hot Chocolate Bar & Giveaway (closed)

Ever since I had the first (proper) hot chocolate (memory) from real, melted chocolate (and, quite needless to say, not just from powder), I was hooked. There was no going back. I used to sip on such a rich, “real” chocolat chaud in the beautiful town of Aixe en Provence, in the South of France,...

Mulled Wine Gingerbread Bundt Cake

Mulled Wine Gingerbread Bundt Cake

  Normally, I’d be working on putting together The List for my Seasonal Bucket List – but this year, it just feels like we’re still so far away from Winter and The Holidays… Or maybe this year just went too fast? It sure was an eventful on. Normally, by this time, I’d be well into...

Sweet & Salty Chocolate Chip Challah Buns

Sweet & Salty Chocolate Chip Challah Buns

Remember when I recently showed you the Apple Fritters my friend and I made one random Saturday? Well, there were Apple Fritters – and then there were these darlings here: Chocolate Chip Challah Buns. With honey inside. And sweet and salty sprinkles. Doughy and nice. Very fluffy. In one word: heaven in a Bun. Well,...

Moelleux au Chocolat – Lava Cakes

Moelleux au Chocolat – Lava Cakes

There’s something about chocolate that always makes me see the output (read: the chocolatey goodness i just created) in a monochromatic way. Why? Because the Black and White scenes offset the chocolate’s beautiful, luscious dark, chocolatey brown even more. What normally appears to be just a dark brown color shines even more on an otherwise bland black...

Apple Fritters & Fall Flowers

Apple Fritters & Fall Flowers

Some might associate spring or summer with the loveliest flowers, but for me it’s always been Fall…  Just look at those mighty Sunflowers! Huge! And right in front of my mom’s house, in the middle of the city, on an underestimated little field. The abundance of flowerful colors – Sunflowers but also Dahlias and those...

Marinated Zucchini Salad

Marinated Zucchini Salad

Although fall is definitely my favorite season – how can anyone not love it? it’s not as cold as the winter, it’s not as scorching as summer and it’s not as unpredictable as spring… And that’s just for everything that it’s not. Apart from the fact that it is also a lot of really good things…
