Sunday is Bakeday

I like to bake on weekends. Actually, I like to bake in general, but I like to make it a weekend ritual. The truth is that it’s one of those hobbies I tend to feel bad about, because I like to bake cakes more than I like to eat cake. Or rather, a whole cake […]

Because I Can Is A Reason, Too.

A typical conversation likely to happen on any given day in any given Starbuck’s: Me: I’ll have a tall Caramel Machiatto, please. Barista1: Okay… Me: What do you want? Andreas rambles on for about five minutes and all I can remember when he’s done is that he said fat-free at some point. Me: Yeah. You’ll […]

Friday Morning Baking

Today I finally put into action what will from now on be known as one of my best ideas ever. Muffin pralines. Now seriously, why did it take me so long to think of this? It’s awesome. Especially since instead of having to choose just one muffin, you can eat each of one flavour and […]

Cook Books and Diets and Non-Confessions

Just so you know: I did not buy two cook books when checking out the cook book shop I mentioned in my last post. I totally did not. It just looked like I did, what with me going in the shop with two books less than I came out with. I also did not spend […]

Then Again, That’s Why I Love Cologne

I’m stupid. No, really. And I don’t have nearly enough confidence in my beloved Cologne. So I read about this book shop in London, the one that specialises in cook books and has an actual kitchen, where they try out the recipes from the books they sell. Awesome. This shop alone seems like a good […]

Cooking Idols

Despite being astonishingly good-looking – especially for her age – and therefore becoming my husband’s new object of desire1, Nigella Lawson’s recipes are both amazingly easy and most of all ridiculously yummy. I believe that this is a miracle. But it might also be that the small tube of vanilla extract that I bought in […]

So, What Did You Design Today?

Because I made this. Since I’ve been obsessing about food for quite some time now I figured it would only be consistent if I’d started a food blog. So I’ve been browsing for pictures and messing with stylesheets and php and I finally got what I wanted. Well, I’m halfway there at least. Now it’s […]

Food Nerd

Yes, that says it’s another nine months before the book’s actually released. I’d say that’s one heck of a pre-order there. But then again… I mean, we’re talking Clotilde’s first cook book here. How could I resist?
