I’m still waiting for the healthy new year’s resolutions to kick in, but secretly I’m procrastinating until after Valentine’s Day to decide on a fitness membership or new gym class. You can’t rush these kind of life decisions! Meanwhile I’m thinking of new ways to recycle all of my leftover Christmas cookies and created delicious Gingerbread Petits Fours. Continue Reading…
The weather in Vienna has been miserable for the past week. We are almost in June, but I have involuntary embraced my winter sweaters again. To start this week off on a brighter note, I have a juicy recipe for you: My deliciously fresh and moist, Orange and Almond Cake, including a fruity Swatch giveaway at the end! Continue Reading…
Easter is just around the corner!
Today I have a cute DIY food project for you: Completely edible Easter eggs.
These filled chocolate Easter eggs were so much fun to make and taste delicious! I used semi-sweet chocolate for the shells and filled them with a homemade vanilla pudding, topped with a teaspoon of homemade orange curd. I might never make store-bought vanilla pudding again (sorry Dr. Oetker) because this one tastes so delicious and is (almost) as easy to make!
Only three days until Christmas, can you believe it? And I haven’t wrapped a single present! I’m so behind with everything this year.
The combination of orange and cranberry is delicious for these loaf cakes. The oranges gives it that extra sweetness while the cranberries bring some tartness to it. The recipe is super easy to make and great if you need to whip something up very quickly for some spontaneous guests.
To change things up a bit, today’s recipe is not a cookie recipe but my mom’s amazing orange Christmas punch. In Austria, Christmas punch can be found at every Christmas market in lots of variations. I would even go as far as to say that hot punch is more popular than mulled wine here.
Punch does not necessarily have to contain alcohol. My mom’s recipe below is a child-friendly Christmas punch version, simply add dark rum to your taste if you want to booze it up.
