Matcha pancakes cake

For a long time I was convinced that matcha is not my cup of tea. It was all about one terrible cheesecake we tried few years ago, that totally put me off. The taste was too intense almost seaweed like. Fast forward to couple of months ago we went to the new Japanese shop in…

Posh banana bread with walnuts and dates

If you follow my blog (which I hope you do :)) you know how much I like baking. Preferably easy baking! With the years in the kitchen I found that the biggest challenge is not always the recipe, but the oven. I have been using almost any kind of oven- from simple electricity oven, gas…

Feeling hot today? Get yourself ready for the heat and kick the 50 degrees outside like a boss 😀 This terrine is better than any ice cream as it doesn`t require machine or special equipment. It`s also eggs free meaning you can keep it in the fridge for almost unlimited time (OK, I know that…

Eclairs with lime cream and dark chocolate

Writing about this recipe is rather difficult. Lets start with my enthusiasm to make these eclairs. It is not my first time, but the last time I made them was probably three years ago back in Bulgaria. Back then I was almost scared if I am gonna make them right. All the blogs I was…
