Hello ladies!

I hope you are well 🙂

As you know we’ve been pretty busy here! Between work and the peque, we hardly have time to sit and relax, cook and go to the gym… maybe it is also because we have been spending some time having aperos in our little buvette… summer is officially upon us 🙂

Lemon Yogurt Cake

Vancouver, May 2016

Ladies!!!! Today we’re going to make a yogurt cake…remember like the ones we used to make at school?! FUN! Instead of using the yogurt cup, I used a measuring cup to make it easier to write the recipe. It’s so good! I tried to make a glaze which epically failed- so this recipe does without.

This is nice, fluffy cake- very simple and very tasty.

Olive, Pesto, Sundried Tomatoes and Goat Cheese Cake

Barcelona,

Hello Ladies,

I hope you are all well!

Today I wanted to share with you a recipe that I have discovered not too long ago. I was looking for something new to try, that could be eaten cold and that Beth could eat (so no meat, no cheese, except for goat) for a party we had at our apartment.

It was a very casual party, and dinner was served on a buffet (hence the “has to be eaten cold” part) as I wanted to prepare everything ahead of time so I could sit and chat with our guests.

I found the recipe online, and I decided to give it a try… it was a huge success!

I thought it was really delicious and as soon as I tasted it I knew I had to share it with you 🙂

Berry Cornmeal Butter Cake

Vancouver, October 2014

Hey ladies!

I wasn’t sure what to make this time around, especially as I wanted something delicious to bring to Fiesta Friday hosted by The Novice Gardener. Beth and I had talked about maybe a moussaka- but I saved my eggplants for mutabal (by the way Hanin- delicious recipe you posted!). It makes an entire salad bowl of mutabal….I am so happy). My friend Anna was coming over for dinner and was running a bit late. I wanted to try a recipe from Deb Perelman’s amazing cookbook based off her just as incredible blog “The Smitten Kitchen“. Just so happens I had all the ingredients for her Blueberry Cornmeal Butter cake. SO! Here is is!!!

(Almost) Guilt free Chocolate Cake

Barcelona, Spain

Hello Ladies!

I hope you are all well!

We just came back from a wonderful week in Herblay where we were able to enjoy Jan and Nigel’s company (it was awesome) as well as some delicious home-cooked meals, interesting TV shows, wonderful discussions and a little bit of French wine 😉 We had a great time and we miss you already. So does the little croqueta!

So this week I have decided to share with you a great recipe for a simple chocolate cake. But this one is special: No butter and hardly any sugar, which makes this recipe one of my favorite because I can eat a delicious chocolate treat without feeling too guilty! I think it is also great for when you have kids over and want to give them something that is not too sweet.

We made this awesome cake for Norah’s 3-month birthday. I can’t believe it was almost 3 months ago. Time flies…

Needless to say mommy and daddy really enjoyed the cake 🙂

Short and Sweet: 2 minute Almond, Cinnamon Apple Cake

Vancouver, Canada

This has got to be the most incredible and simple dessert to make. Seriously. I am on the Paleo diet- however I was having friends over for dinner and wanted to have a treat dessert. And I found this recipe from The Paleo Mom – and I’m hooked. And my friends are hooked. I have adapted the recipe- mine uses pecans and omits the coconut.

Delicious Birthday Carrot Cake

Barcelona, April 2014

Hola Ladies!
After a month of crazy changes in our life, due to the arrival of our little angel Norah, I am finally able to better manage my time and publish this post.

Even though Thomas and I are on a diet in order to lose the pregnancy weight (that we both put on…), I wanted to share with you the recipe of a delicious carrot cake I found online on Marmiton. Carrot Cake is one of Thomas`favorites and I really enjoyed making this cake for his last birthday party in November, Thomas and the guests really loved it! I did too 🙂
It became one of my specialties and the gang always asks for more carrot cake!
