2014 Recipe Recap

Good morning! We are back in Germany, back to work and back to our normal schedule. But before moving forward to 2015, we wanted to share with you a little recap of the recipes posted in The slow pace during 2014. Mmm… Monday! is one of our favourite sections and remembering our experiments in the kitchen has been quite fun… and surprising! I thought we were bakers, not cookers… but it turns out it’s the other way round! We have baked less and cooked more. Do you want to have a look at our very own cookbook?

Peanut butter and chocolate homemade bars

We love baking but when the weather gets warmer we don’t feel like spending hours in the kitchen. These peanut butter and chocolate bars are the best solution: super easy to prepare and absolutely delicious! You won’t need the oven and you will be out of the kitchen in about 30 minutes. What’s not to love? These bars are full of energy: perfect as a pre work-out snack or a fantastic pick me up during a day at the swimming pool.

Vanilla cheesecake

Cheesecake was my baking unfinished business. Until last weekend. I have tried a couple of times, but I’ve never achieved what I was looking for. I wanted something creamy but fluffly, sweet but not overly so, something with a fruity or spicy touch. And on top of that, I wanted something easy to prepare. And I’ve found the perfect recipe!

Madrid: Two plans and a hot beverage

One of our favourite indoors activities in Winter is drinking a hot beverage while having a nice conversation, that is, planning a new trip or daydreaming about it. If we do it on a Sunday afternoon in a nice cafe and the moment includes a sweet treat, the joy is inmense. Last holidays we experience this happy moment twice, in two nice little places in Madrid, and we though you may want to hear about them…

Sweet or salty?

This Friday we’re going on vacation!! That’s great, but it also means that we will be trapped in two different airports for hours. So I decided to prepare a nice snack to make the waiting sweeter. What about these chocolate – cheesecakes squares? I allways go for sweet, if you ask me. Are a sweet or a salty person? Image via Martha Stewart You can get the recipe there!
