Peanutbutter cookies

September 20, 2014


Hi everyone. It’s been a long, long time. But life happened. More precisely: I got a job in the middle of June. It’s been hard trying to juggle everything. It’s my first real full time job, so I’m still trying to figure out how to divide my free time. It’s not that I haven’t been baking at all, but I haven’t been taking pictures and editing them so much.

I really want to get back in the swing of things and these really delicious peanut butter cookies are the first attempt to get back at it :) they’re easy to make and so yummy. You can find the recipe right here! I hope to be updating again soon, so keep an eye out for it!










Peanut butter and chocolate chip cookies

April 24, 2014



Sometimes what a person really needs is a cookie. Sometimes, after a tough job interview, what a person really, really needs is a peanut butter chocolate chip cookie. I got this recipe from a Sainsbury’s magazine with 20 quick cakes and cookies.  And yeah, not only were these really quick, but also super easy to make. And so good. 300 grams of Calvé peanut butter, and three different kinds of chocolate chips. Yeah, this one really hit the spot, I must say.

The original recipe (by Lorraine Pascale) didn’t have chocolate chips, but lightly toasted peanuts on top. I made one with peanuts on it for my mom (she’s a big nut lover). I think the combination of chocolate and peanut butter is a sacred one, though. So I decided that the only way these cookies could and would get any better was with chocolate!



Brown butter peanut butter cookies

English is my second language (it was supposed to be my third language but, I’m sorry French,  you’re just really hard, okay?) Sometimes this makes for funny translations. ‘Cause see, in dutch peanut butter is pindakaas – which literally means peanut cheese. Now when you say it like that, in English, it just looks and sounds weird. In dutch though, it sounds right. (Though if I could choose I think I’d go with peanut butter. Nothing really beats butter.) Incidentally it was a Dutch person who showed me the joys of eating peanut butter. Up to this day I’m not sure if I should hate her for it, or be thankful. On the one hand: peanut butter, yum. On the other: maybe one of the most fattening things I like eating.

These cookies were truly amazing. I was meeting up with some friends to go and see Brave in the movie theater. We were having a small picnic beforehand and I really wanted to bake something. These seemed easy and quick to make, so I went with them. Because we were running a little late I had to shove them in a cookie box as soon as they came out of the oven – so they never really cooled into solid cookies. Completely crumbly or not: they were still delicious.
