I don't know how about you, but I feel very tired in spring time. And I find it very frustrating, because there are many things I want to be doing and I cannot find the strength. So I thought I will try some snack that can boost my energy levels. Not sure if it actually works or its just a placebo effect, but these bars taste so nice they can be easily a treat. and guilt free as there is no sugar.

Its already April. Time flies so fast, soon half of the 2015 will be behind us. But finally we welcomed spring and life is happier with the sunshine. Everything is in bloom, the weather is warmer and people seem to smile more.
Barbora and Kat have reunited in Paris again, straight after the Easter break. The weather could not be better. We have visited a newly opened tapas restaurant close to the Republique and liked it so much we went back the next day.

Chocolate Hazelnut Cake

February is almost over and I have decided that it is time for cake. Well, when isn't time for cake anyway? I have been trying different techniques to improve my baking skills so it's not just macarons I can do. In fact the first ever sponge cake with icing I have made was for my nieces birthday back in December. I was very proud of myself and it tasted pretty good too.
Here I'm going to show you how to make fairly easy chocolate and hazelnut sponge with vanilla buttercream. I am not a big fan of chocolate, especially not on its own, but when its mixed with fruit or nuts, I do enjoy it. As it is still cold and miserable outside it seemed indulgently appropriate.

As promised we are working on new posts for the new year more often. I hope you are still feeling motivated to keep healthy. I am not sure why we decide to start eating healthier in January since the fresh produce is so limited. But there are some vegetables that are full of vitamins and are available. For example celery. There is not much we cook with celery, its mostly used as garnish or crudités, but I recently found this soup recipe and gave it a go. It is fairly inexpensive vegetable and the whole soup will not cost you much and the quantities will feed at least 6 people. Or you can have it for lunch the next day, possibly freeze for another day.

Root Vegetables

Happy New Year from Paris this time! I am sure that you had a great time during the festive season and you are looking forward to the rest of your year. Are you feeling very positive about the year ahead but maybe a little guilty about your over-indulgences?

Chocolate caramel walnuts

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE. I hope you all had lovely Christmas and New Year celebrations with your loved ones. We have been busy baking and preparing meals, which left us with no time to prepare a post for you. But we have some ideas already for the new year that we want to share with you. 

Firstly I'd like to show you a recipe for an excellent snack. I found it in one of my favourite magazines called KINFOLK. Amazing lifestyle magazine, do check it out if you can get hold of it or visit their website
This appealed to me instantly as I am a big fan of walnuts. Paired with caramel and chocolate it seemed like the perfect combination. And it did work. My sister enjoyed this snack very much as she loves dark chocolate!
