Vanilla-butterscotch cupcakes

These are the nicest cupcakes ever: rich in taste, sweet, smooth and creamy, thanks to the fluffy buttercream and luxurious butterscotch surprise. Who would've thought that it's also one of the easiest recipes ever? ;-)

Marshmallows

Oh my, that is one of my most favorite recipes — who doesn't love these spongy, almost weightless little cubes of sweetness?! With my super simple recipe you will (quite literally) whip up some of them in no time!

German Zimtsterne (cinnamon almond cookies)

I always wanted to make these, and finally got the guts — oh boy, I wasn't really prepared for the amount of nitty-gritty with making these. I started with original German recipe that called for 500g of almonds, but that ended up being 2 full baking sheets and lots of sneaky snacking between steps ;-) But the result is good, and these cookies are worth the effort.

Spongy waffles

Usually waffles are served crispy, but from time to time I like to make them soft and spongy — perfect base for a plum jam! :-) This recipe makes 4 delicious, spongy waffles that you can prepare in no-time!

Yogurt drink

Drinking yogurt is a terrific drink for autumn — it tastes fresh, contains probiotic bacteria and makes a great dessert or a quick snack, not only during autumn. But during this time of the year it is especially important to keep the natural defense high against viruses and bacteria, and yoghurt is a superb ally in that! Did I mention it tastes great? ;-)

This recipe came to life when I was left with no fresh milk after a short travel — I had only one mini-bottle of a drinkable probiotic yogurt and some condensed milk for coffee (sic!). But against all odds, it worked out!
