Where the Easter Bunny lives…

By | Mamalife | One Comment

When I was a child, my mom used to love creating magic for us. Not a single childhood myth she didn’t cover with a perfectly curated web of “lies” (technically, but I stick to the euphemism “stories). She’d pull all the stops for ocasions like a lost tooth (she was an excellent tooth fairy) and magically made “Schoggiateler” appear (from…

TV Snack Mix & Ramblings on Motherhood

By | From my kitchen | One Comment

Over the past couple of months, I’ve lived the typical #momlife, with all the ups and downs you’d expect. Mostly, I’ve showcased the beauty of it. Like the cute chubby baby thighs, the smiles and giggles, the sweet clothes and toys, the active days on the go with the stroller, with baby sleeping soundly. That doesn’t mean though that there…

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.

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?

soon after launching the best in class series, i’m back! it’s got to be said that i’m fully aware that throwing around me with superlatives like “legendary”, “perfect”, “best in class”, “genius”, “classic” or “world’s best” in the combination with food might be tempting (especially as a food blogger, who wants to trick readers – i.e. you – into reading…
