Oreo macarons

The story behind my relationship with macarons is complicated. First, we loved each other. The first time we met was in Paris and it was love at first bite. When I came home I was so in love, I couldn't get enough so I tried to make them myself. I don't know what it...

Mascarpone chocolate cake with caramel poached pears

 Chocolate and pears are a match made in heaven. To me it's the same as raspberries and white chocolate or salt and caramel. I used mascarpone in this cake to make it even richer than it already is.  I don’t know if it’s a typical dutch thing, but we eat poached pears...

Strawberry and raspberry ice cream

I don't mind if it's freezing cold outside, I can always eat ice cream. The only  difference in summer is that I eat ice cream sometimes even two times a day and in winter two times a week. I always had a special place for ice cream in my heart. The difference now is...

Vegan salted caramel and chocolate tarts

So much recipes in a week.. A promise is a promise! I don't want to forget my vegan followers. So, for now a vegan recipe. I was so surprised about the taste! I never made a vegan caramel, but I love caramel so much I couldn't imagine it wasn't possible without cream....

White Christmas trees with vanilla foam, raspberry and shortbread

The second Christmas recipe. These beautiful pastries are delicious as a dessert or to eat as a treat during the day. I'm counting the days till Christmas. I can't wait to spend a couple of days in the kitchen and just do what I love to do most: baking and cooking....

Pavlova with raspberry and orange

Normally I start thinking about Christmas recipes in October. But this year it was a bit different because of my book (which will come out in the Netherlands in April!). I was so busy with that and I started to think about Christmas just a few weeks ago. So I will...

S’mores macarons

Sometimes I wake up with an idea. A few days ago it woke up with the idea for these cookies. I love to bake macarons. They're so delicate and how love how excited I am (yes still every time) when I see they're getting feet. How amazing would it be to fill macarons...

Hazelnut chocolate tarts

Chocolate and hazelnut is such a wonderful combination. To be honest, I never eat this kind of spread on my bread, but I love to bake with it! These tarts aren't really hard to make, but I'm sure you will impress your guests (and of course, yourself).  Last week I...

Brioche muffins with a brown butter chocolate filling

It has been a while since I posted a new recipe. I'm still working on my book and I have the feeling I need al my creativity for it. But today I really wanted to bake something for my blog and the idea for these bread muffins is in my head for a while. Brown butter is...

Shortbread cookies

I'm back from my two week trip through Scotland. It was amazing! Almost can't describe it. Scotland is gorgeous and each part has its own character and its own gems. I made so many photos and I have to find time to edit them all. You can see some in this post and...
