Pink Peppercorn Hot Chocolate

Hot chocolate and pink peppercorns. Now there’s a combination Willy Wonka didn’t think of. His loss: its liquid perfection. Found a variation to this recipe in a Dutch magazine (probably Libelle or Margriet), tried it and have been hooked ever since. There’s no cream in this so it’s a bit easier on the thighs and arteries. You can always top it with a swirl of whipped cream, though. The chocolate…

Toffee Brownies

  I was seriously craving chocolate last weekend; brownies in particular. Yet there was one thing standing between me and my raspberry cheesecake brownies fix; our pathetic Sunday shopping ordinance. How dare they!! So basically that left me with no alternative than to make do with what I still had in my pantry/fridge. These turned out a little sweeter than my usual recipes, but nonetheless, I ate 2 big pieces! Then I weeped all the…

Chocolate Apple Pie

A few months ago I noticed a photo named ‘Dutch apple tart’ on foodgawker. It was a really pretty photo but that aside, it wasn’t the photo that caught my eye. I was genuinely surprised about the word ‘Dutch‘ in the title. Why? Well, it was simply an apple crumble. Tasty (and pretty) as they are, they’re definitely not a Dutch apple pie. Not even close.

Raspberry Cheesecake Brownies

  Sometimes you happen upon a recipe that looks so utterly delicious, you have no other choice than to roll up your sleeves, head over to your kitchen and get to work.

Saw them in a magazine (Delicious), coveted…

Molasses Cookies

Thanks for all the molasses recipes! It turned out to be an impressive collection! I’ve ordered two extra jars … a girl can never be prepared enough. I happened upon a recipe I really liked. Or better said; I happened upon several recipes I really liked. Rather than choosing one of them, I just combined all of them. Tweaked them a bit -added and subtracted a few things- until I…

Tangerine Bundt Cake

Ok, so it’s actually a Tangerine & Chocolate Bundt Cake, but that messed up the subject line too much! Remember how I raved on and on about my tangerine smoothie and how it tastes just like the ice cream I used to eat when I was a little girl? This is the cake version! Need I say more? I don’t do an awful lot of baking -definitely not in my food blog- but…
