Chocolates are a girl’s best friend. Specially on Valentine’s Day. Even more special when you make them yourself from scratch. I love melting chocolate and reshaping it into something cute and delicious. To celebrate Valentine’s Day this year, I made a surprise box of chocolates with my favorite fillings, including pecans, butterscotch and marshmallow.
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.
Happy October y’all, spooky season is upon us. I absolutely adore Halloween, I am one of those people who starts preparing for it in August, buy all the decorations available, dresses up their dog and throws crazy theme parties with costume contests. Halloween is my thing.
This Black Sangria recipe will be the talk of your Halloween party. Not only is delicious, but is also an easy peasy, no fuss, make ahead kind of drink, perfect for entertaining, you spend less time in the kitchen and more time with your guests.
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.
Handmade gifts are the best, specially when it comes to Valentine’s Day. I guess I’m a cheap date, I’ll take stolen flowers over diamonds any day. But if you disagree, I still think diamond earrings would feel extra special if they came in a handmade paper box.
I love Christmas morning traditions. A big breakfast hooplah, with french toast and eggnog, matching pajamas, Home Alone and one present left under the tree.
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.
Valentine’s Day is around the corner and whether it’s a small token of your affection or an extravagant gesture to signify your love, getting your loved one a heart shaped gift is a surefire way to put a smile on their face.
