Sweet Sunday – Chocolate Chip Muffins

Goodday, my lovely readers! It’s time to bring some sweetness in your lives! As I’ve been craving chocolate for days, I’ve decided to do something about it. The result? Chocolate Chip Muffins. Hungry yet? As always, I try to make my sweet recipes just a tad bit healthier by not adding butter or using white flour. Same…

Sweet Sunday – Pink Macarons

Happy Sunday! Being a lover of Pavlova, I figured I should try making those cute macarons. They seemed to emerge out of nowhere the last years, and could literally be seen everywhere. I thought they were alright, but did not really understand the hype surrounding it. Until I made my own. Because how delicious are these…

Sweet Sunday – Homemade Granola with Nuts

First of all…. HAPPY NEW YEAR! I hope you have all had great holidays filled with lots of joy and food! Let’s kick some ass in 2015! Secondly, it’s Sweet Sunday! It has been somewhat quiet on my blog these last two weeks. I had some time off work and decided to truly relax during…

Sweet Sunday – Christmas Cookies

It’s Christmas time! The most wonderful time of the year is upon us! Oh, how I love Christmas. Darkness outside but warm indoors. Family, friends, and food. Lights in the tree and cinnamon-scented candles. Impressive dinners and glasses of red wine. And cookies. Cause what would a holiday (or any day for that matter) be…

Sweet Sunday – Chocolate Peanut Rocks

Happy Sweet Sunday! It’s time for another delicious sweet dish. Today’s recipe is for Chocolate Peanut Rocks, which is an incredibly easy recipe, that takes almost no time to make. Perfect for lazy days where you just feel like enjoying something sweet and chocolatey. I’ve learned this recipe from a friend at primary school. It…

Sweet Sunday – Dutch Kruidnoten

Sweet Sunday is holiday themed this time! Next week, on the 5th of December, the Dutch celebrate a holiday called Sinterklaas. Some of you may be familiar with it, as it has been on the news quite a bit lately… Anyways, let’s not dive into that right now. Sinterklaas is basically the Dutch version of…

Sweet Sunday – Dutch Cake

I think, along with a lot of other Dutch bakers, that there has always been some confusion when it comes to the definition of cakes. See, in Holland a cake is basically what a pound cake is in the UK or the USA. However, the term “cake” in these countries is far more general, as…

Sweet Sunday – Dutch Pancakes

Oh hi there! Sorry for vanishing for more than a week! I had no creativity or motivation to do anything for my blog last week. Well, that and I was just lazy. Shame on me… But anyways, I’m back now! And I’ve got loads of ideas for the upcoming Sweet Sundays, so we’re good to…

Sweet Sunday – Spiced Carrot Muffins

Happy Sunday to you all! I’m thoroughly enjoing my very relaxing Sunday, my parents have gone out today, so I’ve go the house all to myself. This means that I’m currently blasting my music through the speakers and singing alone quite beautifully (not true) and quietly (also not true). How’s your day so far? For…

Sweet Sunday – Autumn Coffee Cake

When I first started this blog, I had no idea of what to expect in terms of followers. Did anyone even want to read my posts and try my recipes? Turns out, there are actually people that do! As my follower count was slowly creeping up, I was thinking that I had to something special…

Sweet Sunday – Dutch Ontbijtkoek

As a lover of all things food, I own a lot of cookbooks. And by a lot, I mean really a lot. They range from Jamie Oliver, to Nigella Lawson. From small IKEA cookbooks, to big pricey ones. Two of my favourites are actually getting pretty old, dating back to the 50’s. Both of them…

Sweet Sunday – Yogurt with Candied Pecans à la Vince

About two years ago my parents and I went to the United States. During our three-week roadtrip we visited the Eastcoast, places such as New York, Boston, Chicago, Philadelphia and so on. This is still one of the best holidays I’ve ever had. To end the intense travelling, packing and unpacking, and driving, the last…
