Cranberry & Orange Scones

Despite the months long silence, I am still here! Having moved to Berlin where I started photographing for someone else’s blog I have very much neglected my own little blog here but I don’t want to quit bringing you sweetest brunch ideas just yet. So I will try to get back into more regular posts […]

Chai-Spiced Pound Cake

This isn’t a receipe I initially planned to post in the summer. Chai spices with the warming cinnamon and ginger are usually my go to comforter in colder months – but we’ve had some really rainy and grey days and a chai spice mix that my friend Anne gave me recently was waiting to be used, […]
