Mince Meat Rolls

Mince Meat Rolls

I hope you all had a great Christmas time with your loved ones and a lot of good food. If you happened to have made my Mince Meat Pies and you have some left overs, here is a good idea how to use them. Of course you can also use store-bought mince meat or any kind of... read more
Cranberry Mince Pies

Cranberry Mince Pies

When we lived in England a few years ago we were fortunate to spend December there and get to know all the nice English baking traditions. One that we really fell in love with were Mince Meat Pies. As a vegetarian I was first really scared to try them, but once I... read more
Fruit Jewels

Fruit Jewels

If you couldn’t resist to bake some Zimtsterne, than you probably ended up with some left-over egg yolks. Yesterday I already showed you one way to use them by making some delicious chocolate coffee spritzcookies. So in case you are not into chocolate or into...
Dutch Speculaas (Speculoos, Spekulatius)

Dutch Speculaas (Speculoos, Spekulatius)

One of my most favorite cookies for Christmas (and during the year) are Dutch Speculaas. I love the crispness and the spice. Ideal with a cup of tea. As Speculaas are hard to find here in Switzerland, I decided to try to make my own. Luckily last year for Christmas we...

Chocolade Letters

Chocolade Letters

At Saint Nicholas Day it is a custom in the Netherlands to give chocolate letters with the first letter of your name. In Switzerland there are no chocolate letters to buy, I guess for whatever reason this is typically Dutch. I like this little tradition and wanted to...

Christmas Waffles in a Jar with Toffee Sauce

Are you looking for a last minute gift? Preferably home made? I might have the idea. You remember the pumpkin waffles that I made recently? Well I used a silicon form for this and telling a friend about it, she was completely hooked. So when I came across another set... read more
Cranberry Muffins with Orange and Pistachios

Cranberry Muffins with Orange and Pistachios

This week we had a Christmas Party at work, so I was planning to bring some muffins along. As I got my hands on some fresh cranberries (which is hard to get here) I immediately knew that I wanted to bake some cranberry muffins. I love the tartness of these fruits and...
Zimtsterne (Cinnamon Stars)

Zimtsterne (Cinnamon Stars)

My most favorite Christmas cookies are by far Zimtsterne (Cinnamon Stars). The reason why I haven’t baked them last year is simply because they are quite frustrating to make. I am sorry to tell you that ugly truth, but believe me, they are worth the effort! If...
Little Chai Cheesecakes

Little Chai Cheesecakes

As promised here I will show you now the recipe for my little Chai Cheesecakes. The recipe works perfectly to make 4 little cheesecakes (12cm) but I guess you can also make one big one. Making 4 individual ones has the advantages that everyone can have their own...
