After our move across the country, we are still in catch-up mode for Spain and after searching all over the internet for something interesting to do, we originally selected a few dishes and in the end we stumbled over an easy looking slow cooker recipe in a collection of recipes by Pillsbury (go [...]
As you probably have noticed with Ireland and France, we have a new “thing” going, baking a traditional bread for every country and both the Irish Soda Breads and the French Breads were a big hit, so when looking at our next destination Finland, we had a pretty big variety of breads to [...]
(July 3, 2013) Many swear by slow cooker cooking, I must say I never got what the big fuss was about so I never owned one, until recently when one was given to me as a gift by my mother, cause she liked the design on it, lol. I agree the design is [...]
(July 3, 2013) As part of our new slower cooker try-outs, we decided to slow cook a banana bread from Moms with Crockpots but the bananas had gotten moldy so plan B it was, apple sauce instead, cinnamon and raisins.

Nico chose a pack of appropriately themed cellophane [...]
For my birthday this year, I wanted a cake that I had over 15 years ago, yes I still remember it because it was that good! It’s super easy and quick to make. We made it after diner and 30 minutes (little one’s help tends to delay things, lol) later we were having [...]
So we are moving on from Dublin and we cross the Irish Sea and Channel to set foot to the mainland in France, the second stop of our second season of “Around the World in 12 Dishes”. You can find our colouring placemat right here and the passport right here [...]
(Dec. 26, 2012) Alex had asked his mom to bring things from his grandma who passed away a few months before Nico was born. One thing she brought was recipes and this was one of them. After he translated it, I realized it sounded a lot like those yummy chocolate raisin Cadbury clusters. [...]
