The whole full-time job thing is really wrecking havoc with my blog schedule and my baking rutine. Besides the job, I have just been to Chile for ten days (lovely, lovely country, and the Dulce de Leche…! wow!) and the wedding planning is getting serious!
Is anybody still out there? It has been a month since my last post, but I’ll try to come back on track (again). Continue reading
Whoops! I totally forgot to post a book review yesterday. It has been a Holiday weekend in Denmark (Pentecost) and having monday off has thrown me of my rythm. So, let’s look at a book!
If I ever go to San Fransisco, I want to Continue reading
The weather has been so lovely the last couple of days, and if the meteorological institute is right, it will be even better in the upcoming pentecoast weekend! So what better time could there be to make your own ice cream? I have an ice cream maker bowl for my kitchenaid, and I absolutely adore it, but since it has been living in Kristian’s bookcase for a couple of months Continue reading
My fingers are itching. They want to log onto my amazon account, and purchase cookbooks. Which, according to my bank account, is probably a bad idea. Also according to my bookshelves (a.k.a. the livingroom floor). And probably also a bad idea according to Kristian, who seems to think that more than a hundred cookbooks should be enough for a 27-year old (however, I might be able to pursuade him to get a chinese one, does anyone have a recommendation?).
So, instead of impulse-shopping cookbooks, let me look at one I already own! Today I review Sugarbaby by the amazing Gesine Bullock-Prado.
This fabulous book is a candy makers dream Continue reading
Some years ago (before she actually moved there), my sister went to Britain. I don’t remember where or why, but when she came home, she gave me two baking books she had purchased while there. These were actually some of the earliest additions to my baking book collection.
The talented Xante Milton a.k.a. Cookie Girl is the auther behind Eat Me!: The Stupendous, Self-Raising World of Cupcakes and Bakes According to Cookie Girl. This lovely cookbook Continue reading
I’m back! After 3½ weeks of journeying through Russia, Mongolia and China, I am back home. It was an amazing trip, with so many impressions and experiences (If you want to read more about it, you can see my travelling blog here).
So, monday morning means a book review :) I have a soft spot for candy making, and own a few books dedicated to the art of melting sugar. This book combines three things I love in a cookbook; a sugary subject, a single focus and written by a favourite blogger! Shauna Sever, the writer of shaunasever, has written Marshmallow Madness!: Dozens of Puffalicious Recipes, a lovely book full of marshmallow recipes and inspiration!
The book is so lovely, even the cover is puffy like a marshmallow! Continue reading
One of the newer trends is the food blogging world is Biscoff Spread, a spread made of hard cinnamon biscuits. These biscuits are known under a lot of different names, Biscoff, Lotus, Bastogne, Speculatie and Speculoos.
No matter the name, the biscuit is a traditional spiced biscuit from the Netherlands, and Brenda Keirsebilck has written a cookbook, Juliette’s Speculoos, dedicated Continue reading
Trends come and go in the food blogging world, and a couple of years ago (back in 2010) whoopie pies were all the rage. This little book covers everything you need to know about whoopie pies!
Whoopie Pies is written by Sarah Billingsley and Amy Treadwell, and has a fun, squishy cover!
The book is filled with recipes for shells and filings, so you can combine and Continue reading
Fun fact – I should be in Russia as you read this! :)
Another lovely book from the fairy-tale mind of Angel Adoree. The Vintage Tea Party Year is a lovely, well-written book that will cater to your seasonal tea party needs (am I the only one who has that kind of needs?).
With twelve tea party scenarios, Angel enables you to mix&match Continue reading
