Easy milk chocolate mousse with crunchy hazelnuts and chocolate hazelnut ganache. You are not going to believe how good this chocolate hazelnut mousse is. I couldn’t when I first tried it!

Apple Toffee Cupcakes

AMAZING Apple Toffee Cupcakes

Fluffy and moist cupcakes full of apple cinnamon flavor and topped with the perfect toffee frosting. Most cupcakes I’ve made over the past few years have been pretty typical: vanilla, chocolate, peanut butter, coffee, etc. However, on my last visit to New York and its hundreds of cupcake bakeries, I realized there’s a whole world […]

Raspberry White Chocolate Brownies (Blondies)

By Shiran

Raspberry White Chocolate Blondie Brownies

Amazingly fudgy brownies with a delicate white chocolate flavor and bits of fresh raspberries. Any time I get my hands on some fresh raspberries (which unfortunately is a rare occasion around here), the first thing I want to do is pair them with white chocolate. The two are a common combination and, evidently, one of […]

Nutella-Stuffed Cinnamon Sugar Muffins

Moist and fluffy muffins filled with Nutella and topped with a cinnamon-sugar mixture. I think the title pretty much says it all. These are ridiculously good cinnamon muffins filled with gooey Nutella and coated with a cinnamon-sugar mixture much like donuts. I’ve made these muffins more times than I can remember, and they’re something that […]

Tiramisu Cupcakes

By Shiran

TiramisuCupcakes-01

Tiramisu cupcakes soaked in coffee syrup and topped with soft and dreamy mascarpone cream. Over the past two years, I have changed from someone who could barely look at tiramisu to someone who makes (and then eats) it like crazy. And I don’t only mean traditional tiramisu, but also tiramisu cakes, cupcakes, truffles, and doughnuts. […]

Stockholm

Stockholm At Night

July is one of my favorite months of the year due to the (very special) fact that I celebrate my birthday. I know some of you don’t get excited about birthdays as much as I do, but how can one not impatiently wait for it every year when you have an awesome husband that surprises […]
