Lavender French Toast

Lavender French Toast

my temporarily – and now repaired, i.e. brand new – broken oven almost resulted in an oven-gate. needless to say, i knew how to ship around it. being the creative me, i dreamed up an awfully – or exquisitely – french dessert (that passes as breakfast, too). because all good things are somehow, eventually french....

Cherry Cardamom Pavlova

Cherry Cardamom Pavlova

pavlova! i don’t think this ever gets boring. clouds of meringues, tart, boozy cherries on top,  hints of cardamom… what’s not to like? in other words: i’m really into pavlova. i mean i wish i could be one. no! i really mean: i just really like pavlova. full stop. and i can’t wait for spring...

Kaiser-Schmarrn with Apple Sauce

Kaiser-Schmarrn with Apple Sauce

the odds are: i really like kaiserschmarrn, and i’ve praised its perks – i.e. comforting, sugary, sweet and basically everything you want from something to eat – at least once (though in my mind, it’s been far many times than that, really). and for those of you who have no idea what kaiserschmarrn is, here’s...

Black Forest Trifle

Black Forest Trifle

i love baking cakes. which i do, of course, to obtain something: a good result, a pretty to look at (ideally) and yummy cake. both, equally. well, for this cake, what i wanted to obtain was a black forest layer cake, with three layers of lush chocolate cake and mascarpone cream, röteli (a swiss cherry...

Snowflake Pepper Cookies

Snowflake Pepper Cookies

the first snow is always something magic. even as a grown-up, the magic of the first snow does not fail to amaze me. i can’t wait to dance in the snow and dig my fingers in it. maybe even touch a handful with my cheeks. to feel falling snowflakes on my lashes, melting quickly upon...

German Vanilla Crescent Cookies

German Vanilla Crescent Cookies

vanilla is kind of my favorite ingredient. a friend of mine, who’s a wine seller, also sells a couple of selected, top notch delicatessen. he has this insane vanille going on, that’s thicker than your thumb (honestly), super rich and moist and just, basically, heaven in a thing. they’re individually packaed – shrink-wrapped, to seal...

Kanelbullar – Swedish Cinnamon Buns

Kanelbullar – Swedish Cinnamon Buns

it wasn’t in my stars to know how to make yeast based breads and pastry. i somehow made a few good yeasted things – probably out of sheer luck…? but there is definitely no consistency in my skills. but hey, there is always the lucky punch. if you really want to know: i’m a bit...

Christmas Tree Meringues

Christmas Tree Meringues

aaaa… london! we had such a fun trip, and, though the city, naturally, was packed with people, it was actually quite relaxed, too. i had this revelation only recently, where i thought, you know, how it’s so much more fun and easy going to be among my besties – than (any of my past) boyfriends....

Christmas Decor & Cranberry Sauce Porridge

Christmas Decor & Cranberry Sauce Porridge

i discovered lately how it’s healthy to be a pessimist every now and then… ha! why, you ask? well, firstly, being an optimist is such hard work all the time… it’s exhausting. but to allow yourself some negativity every day is really therapeutic. i dubbed it ‘the daily dose of bashing’. we often indulge in...

Raspberry Breakfast Quinoa

since january, life had to teach me a few lessons, it seems. i’ll share my newest insight with you here in the next few days. for now, i think the major lesson was that ‘nice’ doesn’t really get you anywhere… to be ‘nice’, well, i always thought it’s a good trait. but as it turns...
