• Chocolate Rocky Road with Nuts & Berries

    Rocky road is originally an Australian concoction, used to make rotten candy shipped from Europe still somehow attractive to customers – by mixing it all up into one big pile. Today, it’s a diabetes causing treat in the United States, typically made with milk chocolate, sugary candies and marshmallows. This rocky road is healthy. What? Yes. I’ve prepared it multiple times for various medical departments and not once was I thrown out on the street because of how deliciously amazing it was. While sneakily being filled with nutrients. It melts on your tongue and satisfied every chocolate nerve in the body. Print Recipe Rocky Road with Almonds & Berries Course…

  • Apple & Cinnamon Pastry #appelflap

    AN “APPELFLAP” IS A TRADITIONAL DUTCH DESSERT PASTRY stuffed with apple, raisins, cinnamon and sugar, and covered with sugar granules. Lots of people have it for breakfast.

    Chocolate & Dried Apricot Cake

    HELLO THERE! IT HAS BEEN A TOUGH & BUSY WEEK. Since I’m somewhat of an emotional eater (who can resist a sweet bar of chocolate in times of stress? ), I was definitely craving a big old creamy, fudgy chocolate cake to stuff my face in by the time it was weekend. Just as I was about to buy a (definitely unhealthy) cake at the supermarket (what a no-no!), a great friend of mine agreed to meet up for a bake session and save me from myself. EATING THIS CAKE REALLY HIT THE SPOT. It’s a very rich cake, filled with almond flour, real apricots, cinnamon & cocoa powder. You…

  • Small Loaf of Spiced Carrot Cake with Cranberries and Walnuts

    Guys, it’s my first time baking carrot cake – can you believe it? It turned out amazing, I love using moist vegetables in cakes. Up until now, I always grabbed the opportunity to indulge in my mom’s amazing carrot cake, or lazily order carrot cake whenever I’m at a cafe. In the latter case I always look like one of those “my body is a temple” people, since I don’t like frosting (it’s non-organic dairy + sugar = boo!) and scrape it off with my fork to the side of my plate. So, there’s no frosting in this recipe. There is a bit of sugar – I did not succeed…
