Cinnamon Chip Chocolate Cookies

This Cinnamon Chip Chocolate Cookies recipe has been swirling around my mind for a couple weeks now and after working on it a couple times, I’m sure I’ve got the perfect fall/winter cookie for you!

As far as I can remember, there have always been cookies at home- chocolate chip especially. Or m&m cookies. I don’t think there are many children who don’t enjoy  cookies!

This Cinnamon Chip Chocolate Cookie is thick, it's chewy and it's got the perfect balance of sweet and spice- perfect for cold evenings under warm blankets with mugs of hot cocoa or coffee and a good flick or binge worthy show.

Date & Nuts Baklava

I feel like I’m losing my voice. Not literally. Just what makes me, well, me. 

Or maybe I’ve just let too many outside voices in. If that makes any sense.

I think I just need some stimulating company with some conversation that makes you ponder about..everything.

See? HELP!

Life has been so crazy recently, filled with unexpected curveballs poppin’ up outta no where paired with the constant back and forth between the different cities has left me with not much of a routine. No routine means a lot of time wasted for me! Especially if I’ve got some good romance novels nearby!

Beautifully golden pastry covered in a cinnamon honey syrup encasing a decadent filling of almonds and hazelnuts and a smooth date spread. Continue reading “Date & Nuts Baklava”

Blueberry Almond Pie

Hello my fabulous foodies! Today’s recipe is a dreamy Blueberry Almond Pie but before we get into that..

Don’t you just love surprises?

I know I do! I might love guessing them as much as being completely taken by surprise, which makes it really difficult for my husband to actually surprise me. Not that I feel entirely too bad about it ’cause that just gives him a challenge to be more creative! (Just kidding!) 

He has, however, gotten really good at them- caught me by surprise twice this year- which really is something!

I am at the moment sitting far, far from home because of his second surprise and totally loving it!

Which brings me to the beautiful blueberry pie recipe I wanna share with you guys- it perfectly suits the crisp weather and beautiful Swiss city I’m falling in love with!

A sweet berrylicious treat wrapped up in a flaky pastry that's even better than anything you could pick up at a bakery since you've made it from scratch at home!

Spiced Chocolate Milkshake

It’s hot and the air is heavy with rain that won’t fall. When I pulled back the curtains a couple mornings ago, I was super excited as the sky was gloomy and it looked just about ready to pour. We all anticipated it, but it didn’t rain that day. It was just hot and heavy and my long list of blog prep just flew outta my head and I was not able to grasp a single thing that day and wasted it away flipping through recipes and saying, ‘Oh, I could make this, or this, or this!’

Suffice to say I didn’t make either this, this or this and instead settled on accepting the fact that the day was lost. There’s nothing I hate more then a day wasted. Seriously. Whether I’m the one who’s lost track of time or someone has messed up already set plans, a wasted day just rubs me the wrong way. (That kinda rhymes doesn’t it?)

Brownie & Hazelnut Chocolate Ice Cream

Hey, guys!

It’s been awhile since my last post unfortunately!

While I was busy excitedly prepping for Ice Cream Day, I ended up eating out one night and got a seriously terrible case of food poisoning which had me in bed for a couple days with not much time to recover as a family wedding started just a mere three days later.

A complete bummer as I had been planning and testing a whole bunch of recipes weeks in advance!

And, well, it’s an Indian wedding, so you know how those go.. Days on end of different celebrations, with the actual wedding ceremony taking place on the second last/last day!

So I’m on day three of the first wedding of this month, still incredibly weak and my stomach still queasy,  and I gotta skedaddle and get ready for tonight in just a couple hours!

I do, however, enjoy getting ready for weddings immensely! Continue reading “Brownie & Hazelnut Chocolate Ice Cream”
