Another Monday, another week to make awesome things happen! What’d you guys do last week? Me and my boyfriend went indoor sky-diving last weekend. I got him the sky-diving for his birthday. I’m not much of an adventurous person, but I must admit sky-diving was quite awesome. Okay, the first two-sessions I bounced around with no control, but by the third and fourth session I sort-of got the hang of it. You should definitely try it out sometime! It’s not as scary as it looks. Promise! ^^

Anyway, in a few weeks it’s Valentine’s Day. Although I don’t “celebrate” Valentine’s Day, I thought it’d be nice to share a couple of recipes with you guys. Just in case you do celebrate Valentine’s Day or in case you just want a delicious dessert 😉 Today, is the first in my series of Valentine’s desserts. And it’s an awesome one: strawberry LAVA chocolate cake. Now, we all know chocolate + strawberries is the perfect combination for Valentine’s day. Turning this combination into a lava cake makes this recipe beyond perfect for Valentine’s day! And you know what? It’s SUPER easy. Not even kidding. Read more

What’s up, guys? What have you been up to lately? Submerged in the holiday spirit, yet? I think my holiday spirit will grow today, as I’ve mostly been working (yes, pharmacists don’t have Christmas breaks). In between I’ve been racking my brain on the perfect Christmas presents for everyone. After weeks of brain torture, I think I finally have a present for everyone. All there’s left is to buy them. That’s right, I still need to buy all my presents. Horrible, right? Today is the day though. Talking about last-minute, huh? ^^” In between working, blogging and going to the gym I just haven’t been able to go for my annual Christmas shopping spree. Funny thing is, Christmas shopping reflects 2015 for me. This year everything’s been a bit less organized and a whole lot more scattered. It’s okay though. I kind of learned to live with it this year. Life’s never perfect and that’s completely fine. Some things are meant to “let go”.

Anyway, the day of Christmas eve has finally arrived! And so has recipe #4 in my series of last-minute edible Christmas gifts (1, 2 and 3). Today must be the easiest recipe yet. Yes, easier than the dark cranberry and coconut bark. It’s possible. You’ll need just two ingredients for this one! Just two! Also, there are just a few steps to making these. Last-minute doesn’t get more perfect than this. Read more
