Satisfy your sweet tooth with this Raw Salted Caramel Nut Tart – a crunchy nutty tart with creamy sticky caramel flavours.
I always admire cooks that are good at both cooking and baking. It is, however more common to meet someone who is good at one or the other, just like myself.

I’m sure I’m not the only weird one :D Continue Reading →

Though I can’t take alcohol well, the vacation mood got the better of me and had a few too many. Things didn’t end up pleasantly (at least it was not pleasant for a non-drinker like me)… Since then, half a glass of wine is the max for me. And no alcohol for Norbert too because of his gout.
