Walnut and Chocolate Chewies

Just on time for Christmas here’s one more receipe for your holiday baking. If you live in the US or UK and have Santa coming around to drop the presents off in the morning you’ll have to leave him a little treat. And though in the UK it tends to be mince pies, I recommend […]

Chocolate Tiramisu

Tiramisu for in the morning – yes, please! I know it’s rich and rather fancy to have tiramisu in the morning but sometimes you need an extra ‘pick-up’ and that’s what tiramisu is all about.  A translation of tiramisu would be along the lines of ‘ pick me up’ or even ‘wake me up’ and […]

Chocolate Hazelnut Scones

The other weekend one of my sisters came over to visit me in London (that’s her in the photo holding the tray of scones). A visitor is always a good reason to get baking, especially if they stay over night and you are going to have a leisurely brunch with them. A batch of home baked treats […]

Bruges is a bit like a film set, quite surreal with all it’s historic buildings and just so picturesque. Antwerp is much more modern, both in it’s look and even […]

Cocoa Waffles with Whipped Coconut Cream

Chocolate-Pecan-Oat-Coconut Cookies

I know I said that I might give you a receipe for something healthy this time… And I actually made a dairy-/ gluten-/ sugar- free rice pudding that I will tell you about very soon but I didn’t have time to photograph that one yet, so instead here’s one more naughty treat! I recently saw […]

Hot Chocolate (Mexican Style)

I hope you’re all having a nice holiday season so far! It’s about two weeks until Christmas and I’m getting into the mood. In Germany, we celebrate the “Adventszeit” in the run up to Christmas with an “Adventskranz”, a wreath with four candles that get lit up in the four Sundays in the run up […]
