Mini Chiffon Cake

Mini Chiffon Cake | “no picture please”

One of those embarrassing moments:

“There is something magically about the word “mini or little” especially when it’s applied on sweets and desserts. Gather all the mini’s around and you can get lovely shots. In Asia, there are a lot of these dessert shops where they sell mini cakes. All the cakes are perfectly lined next to each other, every millimetres counts and the ambience of the store is great: bright light, white counters, soft colors and friendly people.

Pink KitKat - Japan

KitKat in Japan | Pink chocolate

KitKat is huge in Japan; there are tons of flavors – from green tea to wasabi. In Amsterdam we got these “normal” ones. This pink one I got it from a friend as a little gift.

Vegetarian rice bowl

Healthy, colorful and less than 300 calories dinner | Vegetarian rice bowl

BOWL OF RICE – It’s a lovely winter day today; cold but sunny. When I take a look outside, I see lots of people jog, whether it is alone, with a friend, a dog or in groups. A few weeks ago I was totally seeing myself do the same. However, the truth is cruel… I admit I failed; my new year’s resolution was a complete failure. Chips, cakes, candies, cookies and chocolate they are all here, of course it didn’t disappear in 2014. What was I thinking?! And after all I am a food blogger. I love food! Continue reading
