A pink drink is always a good idea. And with rhubarb around everywhere, it is just a must to give these 2 cocktails or this 1 mocktail a try! Plus, you can «re-use» the rhubarb purée for a delicious dessert on top! Stay tuned for the recipe!

Sugar-Free Carrot Bread


In February and March it’s the typical fasting time. And this year, we are going forward with this and are fasting alcohol and sweets (anything like desserts, sugar, sweeties, chocolate (yes, I know its not that easy)). And this is where a friend gave me this sugar-free carrot bread recipe, which substitutes sugar with dates. Clever idea I thought and gave it try and you know what? It’s really tasty! We served it for brunch and as an afternoon snack – both perfect!

Thanks for the inspiration!
