Greetings from down under!

Even though I wasn’t born here, I’m Aussie by choice, so I’ve decided to put on a little red dress, decorate the house and throw a party.

Passion Fruit Mousse Recipe

Passion Fruit Mousse Recipe

Growing up in Brazil, passion fruit mousse was a part of day to day things. You’d find it in every street fair, every bakery around the corner, every birthday party. Today I was feeling a little homesick, so, I figured, nothing like the sweet taste of Brazilian summer to put me back in a good mood.

The Umbrella Academy Inspired Sugar Cookies

With its quirky characters, gratuitous violence and witty humor, the Umbrella Academy quickly became one of my favorite shows of all time. Now second season is about to start, and to commemorate it, I baked delicious sugar cookies and decorated them inspired by each one of the characters from the show.

Jack Frost Cocktail

Jack Frost Cocktail

This delicious winter treat is usually enjoyed over Christmas (hence the name) by the northerners, who have the privilege of experiencing a snowy winter wonderland. I’m always so jealous. So, since this is the year to try new things, here I am, making a Christmas cocktail in the middle of July, pretending is snowing outside, waiting for Santa to bring us some toilet paper or something.

Happy Valentine’s Day! To celebrate this year, I made maraschino cherry flavoured macarons with an white chocolate ganache filling. They came out finger licking great. Crunchy and chewy and really delicious.

Every year, when starts to get colder, I immediately start collecting recipes with lots of cinnamon. There is something about cold weather and that spicy smell that just goes perfectly together.
