Pumpkin Hummus with a Kick

Smooth and creamy hummus made with sweet pumpkin. This hummus has a slight kick to it from the chili and contains no oil. Serve with bread or use as a dip.

It’s about time I shared a recipe other than baked goodies with you guys again. I can’t even remember the last time. The past few months have all been cookies, cupcakes and more. But today it’s time for homemade hummus! Pumpkin hummus. A while back I tried this store-bought pumpkin hummus in one of my taste tests (Dutch) and both me and my boyfriend liked it a lot. And so I decided to make my own version. A version without added sugar and less salt. It turned out delicious (if I may say so myself). I’ve made this hummus a couple of times now and each of those times the batch hasn’t lasted more than a few days. Gone in a jiffy. That good.

Vegan Blueberry Pancakes

Thick, fluffy pancakes stuffed with warm plump blueberries. Egg-free and no dairy. Suitable for vegans. Serve with plenty of maple syrup.


Pancakes time!!! Who doesn’t love pancakes? I do. Except for the “healthy” banana egg pancakes. Have any of you tried it before? I’ve tried several times AND with all kinds of adaptations to the recipe, but it never tastes good. It’s just too banana-y and egg-y (which is kind of obvious seen the ingredients lol) for me. Super healthy’s just not my thing. Guess I’ll just live with the carbs and run an extra mile. Psssh… who am I kidding? I’ll just live with the carbs, period. Lol. Read more

Huh an early post today? Yes, because I’ve got another post planned later. So two posts today! (yay) Today’s another Halloween post. Nothing fancy, just like yesterday. Just a quick DIY for the last-minute people out there (don’t worry, I’m the same, won’t judge). Today, I’ll be playing with Oreos again. I love Oreos. Did you know that? They’re so easy to work with and you can use it for so many things: Cheesecake bases, quick pies, cupcake stuffing.. You name it!

And as they’re more on the cute side than scary side, I guess you could call these kid-friendly too 😉

Best Blueberry Frosting

Creamy, light blueberry frosting made with cream cheese using REAL blueberries. No additives. This frosting doesn’t turn rockhard in the fridge like buttercream, which makes it perfect for cupcakes or cakes you want to serve straight from the fridge. One batch is enough for 12-14 cupcakes.


It’s getting dark outside early these days, making me feel a bit gloomy. Don’t get me wrong, I love that cosy feeling autumn and winter bring us; the holiday spirit swelling inside. Yet, I can never help feeling a bit gloomy. It makes me contemplate life (too much). “Am I doing what I should be doing?” “Do I worry too much?” “Do I have my priorities straight?” Luckily, I always have a couple of bright lights in my life for these gloomy days: family, friends and food. Naturally, I can’t see my family and friends 24/7. They have a life too. So it won’t come to you as a surprise that I’ve done quite some baking/cooking these days. And today’s one of my all time FAVORITE frostings. Honestly, I feel like it’s my best frosting so far. Read more
