Not to mention that if I cannot find the cake in my dream, I definitely have to make it! It’s a must 🙂 [Read more…]
I think I just got myself into a new addiction. But it wasn’t unexpected as I’m already addicted to chocolate. Lately it’s Snickers! The limited edition one. Imagine me buying a lot (and eating) because of their smart marketing a***s with the limited edition stuff. [Read more…]

Me: ”What do you want for lunch?”
My husband: ”Anything…”
My daughter: ”Nothing!”
Don’t you just love them! Looks like I have nothing to do. For anything my fridge is full, for nothing, even better! If it only was so simple… That was in the morning.
There is no such thing like perfect cocktail recipes and for a few years I have been working on ideas and ideal recipes for when entertaining guests. Over the years I was lucky to attend to all kind of events, in different countries and I was lucky enough‘’to taste a piece of many cultures’’.
