To be honest I’m not really a Christmassy kind of person, and most Christmas traditions aren’t really that important to me. But when it comes to Lucia Day (or Saint Lucy’s Day as you would probably say in English) on the 13th of December I’m all for it. This day is quite special to me as it reminds me of Sweden and my Swedish family.
In Sweden Lucia Day is celebrated big time. You’ll see Lucia parades with Continue reading →
There’s this very special pie that I’ve been wanting to bake for many many years now. Why I haven’t baked it until now is a mystery. I’ve actually even shopped for the ingredients several times, but I always ended up using them for something else before I came to baking the pie.
It’s cupcake time, yaaay!! Some would even call it their favorite time (myself included)! It’s been quite a while since a last posted a cupcake post here on the blog, so I thought it was about time.
I’ve baked these chocolate cupcakes with salted caramel filling before, and since they were sooo extremely good I immidiately knew I wanted to bake them again when I had guests coming over this weekend. These cupcakes consist of a delicious chocolate muffin filled with salted caramel and topped with an intens dark chocolate frosting. This frosting is a new version I hadn’t tried before, but it turned out pretty well I must say, and therefore I decided to share the recipe with you.
And oh, it’s about time I include you guys in a little secret I’ve been keeping for quite a few months now… Continue reading →
I am not hesitating to call this cake my best and tastiest creation so far this year. I know those are some pretty big words, but I’m really not exaggerating. This cake is really something. In the most chocotastic, intense and rich way possible.
And the best thing about the cake? It is SO easy to bake. It doesn’t need all kinds of weird ingredients. It will surely be loved by ANYONE that tastes it. It gets better and better by each day that it’s allowed to sit in the fridge (but really, who can restrain themselves from eating all of the cake on the first day?). Continue reading →
My absolute favorite thing about weekends are the slow mornings. My weekday mornings are an absolute mess, I snooze the alarm forever, I get up way too late and end up being super busy resulting in no time for breakfast before I rush out the door. That in itself is quite contradictory, since I’m otherwise a HUGE fan of slow mornings and having loads of time for a delicious breakfast.
That’s exactly why weekend mornings are something I look forward to all week. I can spend a lot of time during the week fantasizing about what kind of breakfast I want to prepare Saturdays and Sundays.
