Sugar Tart


Some weeks just call for comfort food and this sugar tart fulfills this. Its sweet taste makes the world look a lot better again! It’s perfect for an afternoon tea time or as a dessert.

Last time I enjoyed a piece was at the pool side for lunch in Italy. But what is a Valdostana? It’s a puff pastry quiche style dish filled with ham and cheese. Perfect to go with a green or cucumber salad.

Parsnip Soup with Pecan Nut & Pear Topping


Fall is really here now – the cold temperatures definitely show this. So this heralds the soup season…

Fluffy Lemon Cake


It’s cake time! This is another reason I like the end of summer and the start of the colder season. It gets colder outside and a coffee & cake combo in the afternoon is just pure bliss. Relax a bit, either with a good friend, catching up on life or just for yourself with a little me-time. Just as a little info – the cake is not super sweet with the amount of sugar, but just right, for my taste at least!
