She had sent a sweet little birthday card along with it and that’s when I truly felt like it was my birthday. It was so special receiving freshly made cookies like that, and since then Johann and I have also been sending cookies to people who we feel is in the need for a little support, or as a way to say “thank you”.Read More
Despite my love/hate relationship with Instagram, I do love it for always giving me inspiration. And you do meet some great people on there, who you otherwise would never have gotten to know.

This version doesn’t have the little wafer, so you can immediately begin eating.Read More
Not that long ago, I got a message from Suus from Puur Suzanne, who told me she had finally found the recipe for the best vegan cheesecake of all time. As any serious food blogger should, she put her own twist on it and also sent me the original recipe, so I could be creative with it as well. First, I followed the original recipe to try it out for myself, and honestly, I sold from the very first bite. Suus wasn’t lying: this is the best vegan cheesecake of all timeRead More
