Beer Bread (No-Knead)

Time is running so fast… I can’t believe my little munchkin is almost 2 months old. And that this means that I’ve been at home for almost two months. The two best months of my life so far. As a mom (and a housewife, admittedly) – the  best job in the world. Even if it means you only ever get…

Hello folks, I’m back! Happy new year? Question mark, because that’s probably not in place, given that’s it already February. Ha!

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.

Moelleux au Chocolat – Lava Cakes

By | From my kitchen, Sweet | One Comment

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 and white background. Doesn’t this…

Apple Fritters & Fall Flowers

By | From my kitchen, Sweet | No Comments

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 funny shaped clashing orange lampion…
