So I sugar detoxed last month, Oh Yes …

Hard work?

Very.

Feeling good?

Oh yes times 1000.

Glow?

Yes. Yes. Yes.

Miss sugar. Cravings?

No no no. And I’m not kidding.

New strong body with tons of energy and waaaaaauu… almost two sizes smaller. But most impotent: happy smiling.

And that’s why my new healthy self and I have browsed around for vegan and more healthy Christmas sweets. Crunchy bites or sweet drinks or other lovely mmmms… that make us glow from inside and out. Oh She Glows is one of my favorite vegan blogs by Angela Liddon. These recipes are by Angela and for you, me, or as hostess gifts (for those who likes healthy choices in December. But most people I know would love to have these delicious jars as a gift). ENJOY.

Emma had her sixth birthday the first of May. She always chooses how her birthday cake should look like. This year she wanted “a green grass meadow with lots of flowers on”. My son’s choice at his birthday a month ago was Tigger (Emma’s wish was a bit more realistic!). I had one evening (+night!) to make it including marzipan flowers. It was filled with an oh so good italian lemon cream and I made a green fluffy vanilla topping (it was delicious but I’m not sure it should turn out that creamy!?!). The girl loved it! The mum was rather boosted after the party.

Life is good

Heartmade

HomeMade by Yvette van Boven: “Because I’m often headstrong, I’ve sometimes interpreted classic recipes completely in my own way, and I hope you won’t mind. Because I’m often impatient, I’ve sometimes drawn the recipes because it’s faster, and because at times, probably unnecessarily, I worry that you don’t think in the same realm as I do, I’ve also added memories and photos so you get a sense of what I mean. Just like a formally decorated table, or a beautifully arranged plate, I believe that a cookbook should exude a certain spirit that I think you should be in when you get in the mood to get going in the kitchen.”–from the Introduction!

Right now I’m sitting on the edge of a whole decade. Tomorrow I will start a new one. Scary… not really I’m okay. But I was thinking of posting a spectacular cake full of ganache, sprinkles and all that jazz. But honestly, I’m not into huge cream cakes. And why start now! The images from this extremely delicious and well-written cookbook by Yvette van Boven shows very well what my birthday can be full of. Simple cooking, homemade, heartmade with twists of creative ideas and plenty of time for informal doodles and funny drawings in the kitchen with my kids. Walk in park. Warm fresh baked rolls. Later, perhaps a cocktail from above?

Yvette van Boven tells foodie stories from Ireland and France through HomeMade, her personal recipes + her fine illustrations all in great combination with Oof Verschuren’s photos of food and fantastic nature views. “Cook the winter away. It’s going be a good one”! That’s the spirit for my birthday this year.

Not only in taste but also visually. Of course it requires courage. The Sprinkles Ice Cream shop in Beverly Hills in LA opened last year and not just as a small cute boutique with handmade quality oh no, with strict outstanding design plus an ATM-24-cup-cake-service! There’s no excuse for not remembering sweet goodies, you can buy yummi take away cup cakes from Sprinkles‘ ATM machine 24/7.

Sprinkles is not just standing out visually but their menu is also more than (good!) american ice cream mmmm… home made ice cream sandwiches, signature cones in raspberry red! I just have to visit one day and explore all of it myself.
