Did you enjoy my Sinterklaas recipes so far? There’s only one week left so we’ve come to my last Sinterklaas recipe of 2017. Boy, time flies when you’re having fun!

Now, I’ll be honest with you guys: this vegan recipe isn’t healthy -it still contains sugar- but I promise you it’s definitely a delicious cake. Even if you’re vegan you can enjoy the holidays with yummy baked goodies. In addition, this cake is very easy to make (batter ready in less than 5 minutes!) and you need just a few simple ingredients. Read more

My gosh guys, it’s already freezing cold again in The Netherlands! Haha, okay, I admit: I’m cold quite fast; we’re not even halfway Autumn yet and I’ve already pulled all my sweaters out of the closet. What to do when it’s actually winter? Wear even more layer, I guess? Might arrive at work like a Michelin Man by that time lol. Thank goodness there are also good things about this season. Beautiful things like baking. Like this spice loaf cake I baked last weekend. This cake will get you in the festive mood, guaranteed.

Not into overly-sweet cakes? This is the recipe for you! Walnut, raisins and spices combined in a light and fluffy loaf cake. The fragrance is amazing.


Soooo… I bought a camera for vlogging. Yep, I went there. I’m still not very sure about it, but somehow I just hit that “check-out to order” button without thinking about it. You see, I’m going on a trip to Sweden and Japan(!!!) this summer and I thought it’d be fun to try vlogging instead of writing long (snooze-worthy?) essays like I did for our Seoul trip. I tried to use my DSLR when I was in Seoul, but it was really too bulky and heavy to drag along (let alone to film with). I usually ended up dunking the rock DSLR in my bf’s bag and only took it out on food important occasions. However, this year I’m being smart and got a light compact camera to bring along. I’ll try to do a few test shots to get used to filming in public, but I hope you guys look forward to my travel videos.

Anyway, a few weeks ago I decided to tried my bf’s colleagues again. As he works at quite a big firm, treating his colleagues means I get to bake a whole lot of different stuff (poor me huh? 😉 ). Whenever I bake for a large group of people, I try to aim for different kinds of baked goodies so all tastes are catered for. One of the things I always try to add to the mix is something that isn’t too sweet. Baked goodies are often on the sweeter side, but there are always a few people who prefer less sweet food (including myself). Read more
