Swedish Confectionery: Chokladbollar

Ever since I was little, I had this thing for Scandinavians - be it their food, their decoration, interior design in general, or clothing - and of course their warm and welcoming character. Back in the days we used to have International Food Days at our school, and since I've been to international schools, there were quite a few foods to display. I remember running from one food stand to another and trying to buy ...

Pak Choy & Rice Noodles

Happy Monday! The first day of the week is already over - once again, faster than I thought. The upcoming days are full, full, full, starting with a meeting tomorrow morning at 8am (way too early!).

For all those capable of donating ...

I love banana bread - I used to make banana cake all the time actually. Then I wasn't allowed to have any gluten and my old recipe fell into dust. I've been thinking of making a similar recipe the past weeks on a constant now, so this past weekend I ...

Last week I bought two new recipe books to get some more inspiration in the kitchen. I love cooking and baking, but it's gotten all a little bit more complicated since I not only have to avoid lactose, but also gluten ...
