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 – 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…

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 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 – 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 – 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…

Sweet Sunday – Classic Tiramisu

For a recipe that is so globally known to be an Italian staple dish, Tiramisu is actually a relatively new creation. It has been invented in the 1960’s, although there is still debate on the location and the creator. Nevertheless, it has quickly become a classic dessert in Italy.  Originally, Tiramisu did not include Marsala or…

Sweet Sunday – Profiteroles

Profiteroles, or as we call them in Dutch “soesjes”, could easily be my favorite food in the world. What’s not to love about this dish when it involves pastry, whipped cream, and melted chocolate? Just by writing this, my mouth starts to water. To my pleasant surprise, it is incredibly easy to make! I’ve tried…

Sweet Sunday – Hazelnut Biscotti

Yes, yes, yes! Sweet Sunday is finally back! Oh, how I have been slacking on this day… But I return with this gorgeous recipe for Hazelnut Biscotti. A classic Italian cookie. This particular recipe incorporates marsala in the dough, so if you do not like that, or need something children proof, just substitute it with…

Sweet Sunday – Red Berry Pavlova

Okay, I’m just going to straight up say it. I am so incredibly happy with and proud of this Pavlova. So is my mum by the way, she had two pieces, while she normally never eats anything sweet. That says something about this gorgeous, beautiful, delicious Pavlova. Did I not tell you Monday that today…

Sweet Sunday – Banana Walnut Muffins

Hurray! It’s Sweet Sunday! And with that little rhyme, I’ll now bring you the new recipe for this relaxing summer (!) Sunday! Gorgeous banana walnut muffins. Aside from the sugar -but who cares about that anyway?- this is actually a positively healthy recipe. It substitutes the normal use of butter for oil. Also, I have…
