May is definitely a month with the most days off. If planned carefully, and if the weather plays along, you can feel like you hit the jackpot.

I didn’t plan on baking these days. I wanted to sort out my closet and our balcony also needed some tending. But it just happened. One thought led to another, and it just couldn’t get out of my head. Continue reading “Little ricotta cakes”
I don’t know about you, but I’m a sweet addict. Maybe not all the time, but when I do, there is nothing which stands in the way between me and a cake or a bar of chocolate.

When I was little, my parents used to take me and my siblings to a little bakery on the outskirts of the city to buy sweets. Usually donuts and cream puffs. It was like little Christmas, no matter the season. It was a small family run bakery, behind the house, and mostly open from the afternoon onwards. That was a good and a bad thing. … Continue reading Cream puffs!
