2014 was an amazing year in many ways – I spend time on 3 continents, in 6 different countries (bringing me up to a total of 5 continents and 32 countries), saw St. Basils Cathedral in Moscow (a childhood dream, can anyone remember this landmark from the original SimCity?), travelled with the transsiberian Railway Continue reading Happy New Year→
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!
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, instead of impulse-shopping cookbooks, let me look at one I already own! Today I review Sugarbaby by the amazing Gesine Bullock-Prado.
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!
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.
