Since I’m being super dramatic about not having summer sunshine around I decided to hit the sauce – the bourbon maple sauce that is. I made this quick and easy cocoa dumplings simmered in a boozy sticky sauce for Baked The Blog. If you’re also feeling like you need a little sumthin sumthin, then head over there – bottle and shot glass in hand – and get bakin’!

PS. I had this for breakfast and I must say the combination of sugar, butter, and alcohol was the best way to start my day.

Hello Morocco

hey hey hey! Guess who’s back!? After a few – very much needed – weeks of vacation, I am back to reality and life. I’ve been slowly but surely selecting a few images to share with ya and it’s been a bittersweet experience; going through the memories of all these amazing places while hitting the wall of reality, it ain’t easy. First world pains.

So, instead of making a boring “travel guide” (there’s already 1000 guides for these cities) I will share little snippets of my favorite spots, it’s almost as if you could peek into my memories.

The cities I visited were Paris, Barcelona, and Munich in Europe and Fez, Meknes, and Chefchaouen in Morocco. Needless to say each place was unique and stunning. I’ll start with my absolute fave: Morocco!

These images are some moody snapshots of the medina in Fez, a 1200 year old city full of history that words simply cannot describe. The food, the colours, the culture – insanity!

Enjoy the show (oh and if you have any travel questions, just ask away! I’m happy to share any tips).

End of Summer Break

Roasted Artichokes with Miso Jalapeño Aioli

By now I am away from my computer and probably crying a bit because that’s rare and much needed. Yes, friends, I am on a blog break! After a very productive (read: fucking crazy busy!) summer, I finally took some time to recharge. The bags under my eyes are fit for picking apples at this point, so yah, chill time was overdue.

Feel free to peruse around my Instagram feed where I’ll be posting some photos from wherever it is that I am.

See you in a few weeks!

PS. The photo above is for Roasted Artichokes with Miso Jalapeño Aioli that I made for Molly from Almost Makes Perfect, make sure to check her blog for when she posts it!

K, BYE!

Hey yo. I have a little surprise for you! Today a few awesome fellow foodies and myself have launched a new site called Baked which is entirely devoted to food photography and – as the name says it – lots of sweet pieces of baked art!

For my first contribution to the site, I create this moist and deliciously-crumbly Greek Yoghurt Cake with Orange Blossom Cake. It’s an ode to the end of summer! (and it’s super easy to make).

I am seriously thrilled to be part of this new project along with some MEGA big foodie guns.

What ya waiting for? This cake is not gonna make itself, so go get baked!
