Apple-hazelnut pie with a twist!

Let’s talk apple-pie! Everyone knows apple-pie and everyone seems to love it. Seems… because in my family of six, only two love to eat apple-pie, myself and one of my sons. Which is a-typical for a Dutch family, because apple-pie in the Netherlands represents “cosines”.   The fact that only two members in my family eats…

Rhubarb-blueberrie, hazelnut crumble

Not many people know that rhubarb is actually a vegetable and not fruit. Despite that it is used mostly for deserts. So did I! The combination with blueberries and hazelnuts is like a match made in heaven!

Chocolate cake, Easter style!

While Passover starts tonight, Easter is on its way as well! The ultimate occasion to bake a special cake.

Not so much because of the weather (although it can be very nice as well) and definitely not because of the spiders.

Sweet and crunchy pistachio-cranberry cups

I posted this delicious desert a couple of months ago on Facebook. They were so incredibly good that I thought I’d post this again for those of you who missed it! A real desert which takes some effort and is challenging, that was my task this time. So I made these sweet and crunchy cranberry,…
