Peppermint Crisp

Peppermint Crisp was never been my favorite chocolate as a child. No, I was a Lunch Bar and Tex kind a girl. Peppermint Crisp in my opinion was a chocolate for the elderly. A chocolate I would buy my mom or my grandma! Then Peppermint Crisp tart became famous and I had to swallow my […]

brioche

Brioche, the ultimate French bread which was for so many years exclusively enjoyed by the rich and aristocracy.

Gluten-free baking scares the heck out of me, seriously! Gluten-free to me also means taste free, or at least to me! Wrong, I was really, really so wrong about this! The thing is, I don’t have to bake or cook with gluten-free products only, because we do not have health issues! The reality however is, […]

Custard desserts are hug-in-a-bowl-desserts and yes, even just plain old custard gives me that warm fuzzy feeling, especially on a cold winters day! Custard desserts are nothing new to us, there are so many of them…. think trifle, custard slices, pavlova with custard and those are just the simple ones. Custard also forms the base […]
