Do you love personality quizzes? I used to take every possible quiz back in highschool. I was always curious and trying to find out more about myself. You never know what you might discover, right?

Now, tears passed and from time to time I still do a quick quiz. Just to relive highschool for 2 more minutes. Despite finding out what Disney character I should be, which town I should live in or who should play my life role, I’ve never thought about what “Which sweet treat am I?

Am I simple? Traditional? Sassy? or maybe Luxurious?

I do now know the answer. …

Strawberry banana split milkshake

Few weeks ago it may have seem like spring will never come, but finally the temperatures are slowly getting higher, in fact this weekend there are supposed to be 70′s. There may not be much, but it’s better than the high 30′s we had just few days ago.

This weekend we’re planning on having a big egg hunt in the backyard. My husband is planning on firing up the grill for the first time this year and our daughter is looking forward running around the backyard, finding the colorful eggs and enjoying the surprises.

Me? Most likely slurp on one of these strawberry banana split milkshakes….

Chocolate Layer Cake with Dulce de Leche Frosting

I’ve been on a dulce-de-leche kick lately. I’ve swirled some into a Chocolate Dulce de Leche, brushed over an apple tart,  made thumbprint cookies, ate it straight from the can and to top everything I made this gorgeous Chocolate Layer Cake with Dulce de Leche Frosting. This cake is probably the sweetest cake there is. The chocolate cake…

Chocolate dulce de leche bread

Chocolate dulce de leche bread – soft, rich chocolate cake-like bread with dulce de leche swirls. An easy dessert for your morning cup of coffee, lunch break or after dinner treat.  I’m not a patient person.

Cardamom Coconut Buns

I’m often ask where to I get my inspiration from when baking. Sometimes from cookbooks and other blogs, sometimes from bakeries and restaurants, and few times by just cleaning out the pantry. You might think that all the recipes I share are just the result of my wonderful baking skills (I’m modest I know) but you’d be…

As I said earlier, all recipes came from the Chocolate cookbook I…

Steakhouse Bread

We don’t go often to steakhouse. As vegetarian we need a good excuse to have dinner at Outback or another steakhouse but we do go there when we’re visiting family in South Carolina. My mother in law loves a good steak and there are several local restaurants that we go to every time we visit her. The…
