Lemon Curd Ice Cream (No machine needed)

Lemon Curd Ice Cream

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

Baking Book Review – Sugarbaby

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.

Baking Book Review – Eat Me

Baking Book Review – Marshmallow Madness

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
