Our Little Coffee Corner at Home…

….

I just love my morning coffee. It is one of the little things I cherish everday over and over. The first sip of coffee is like a huge burst of energy running through my veins I just can´t describe this feeling. Also in my opinion the first coffee of the day tastes best. No matter where you get it in which way you decide to drink it. I always have a black coffee with a splash of fat free milk but if we are out for breakfast I´ll get a cappuccino and if we are at Starbucks I´ll usually have a vanilla latte. 3 super boring coffee orders but that´s just me. I like it simple and sometimes with a little twist.

Now let´s move on to our coffee corner I have created over the years we have lived in our house and to this day I think it is the perfect spot to make my morning coffee. I can wait for the coffee maker to heat up while breathing in fresh morning air from the window besides and I can also have a look outside how the weather is doing (or sometimes what the neighbours are doing 😉 ).

We have a very simple coffee maker and it is totally fine. There are different coffee pads you can purchase, also from huge coffee brands like Dallmayr or Jacobs. Another option you also have is a hot chocolate version which is also very yummy and calorie reduced cause it is made with hot water.

I personally love to have a clear theme so I got a coffee picture, some coffee themed books and a coffee candle that turned out to be the best smelling candle I have ever lit. The customized go-to Starbucks cups are from etsy. You can shop them here. The black and white mugs add some contrast. Now the upper shelf contains a cute fake plant and a wooden box where all of my teas are in. The white travel mug is from Emsa and my favorite brand. Never leaks and keeps my coffee hot.

The shelving system is Ikea. The shelves are called Burhult and the holder are called Ramshult.

Delicious Bunny Bait as an Easter Treat…

….

With Easter right around the corner I just can´t wait for all the delicious treats that come along our way and also for our big Easter brunch. I still have some other recipes I wanted to share with you but I couldn´t wait for the Bunny Bait cause it is so easy, funny and yummy plus it is amazing to gift to your family and friends. 

Colorwise there are endless possibilities but to make it Easter appropriate I went with green, yellow and orange. It looks so beautiful and springy I just love it. 

For our Bunny Bait I have used:

– mini pretzels

– macadamia nuts

– oat pillows 

– sprinkle mix Easter themed 

– crunch balls 

– M&M´s 

– white choclate

Quantities aren´t really that important here. I have used one cup of all the main ingredients and the sprinkles and M&M´s just to cover the crunch.

You can add and take away as many as you want. I have also made a Reel that you can watch on my Instagram account if you are interested. 

First I mix all the dry ingredients, then I put in the chocolate and stir, stir, stir. After that I spread the whole batter on a sheet pan and evenly distribute the sprinkles, crunch balls, M&M´s and everything else you want to use to decorate. Now you have to wait until the chocolate hardends. It can take up some hours. 

Then I break it into little pieces to put into Weck jars to keep it fresh or if you want to gift it you can put it into little paper or plastic bags. Also if you want to gift it for Easter you can definitely put on some bunny shaped tags.

I started the year pretty strong with some fresh fashion posts and also worked out quite often so I wanted to share one of our Christmas and NYE desserts we indulged in and it tasted amazing plus it is super easy and quick to make – always a plus for desserts cause they can definitely take quite some time to make.

Since I didn´t have a dessert bowl I went with these pretty gold rim glasses I got from H&M Home years ago. I just love the way the dessert looked in the glasses and the portions still weren´t too big.

Indredients:

– low-fat quark

– mascarpone

– frozen mango or fresh (however you like it)

– Giotto

– vanilla sugar

– cream

– physalis

I mixed the mascarpone with the low-fat quark and the vanilla sugar. I really don´t have written down the amount I used, I used mixed it together until I liked the taste. But I would say mascarpone and low-fat quark can be the same amount. 

Let the frozen mango thaw overnight and blend it the next morning until it is smooth. 

So for the Giotto balls I used a rolling pin to crush them. 

That´s it so far in terms of preparation. Now get your glasses and start assembling your layered dessert.

I went with a layer of Giotto, mascarpone mix, mango, Giotto, mascarpone mix, cream and topped it of with some whole Giotto and physalis.

Everyone loved it on Christmas so I made it again for NYE. To be honest you could exchange the fruit for any you like. Would be super cute with strawberries for Valentine´s Day as well.

Pumpkin Spice Mini Bundt Cakes topped with Black and White Chocolate…

….

Happy Friday you guys,

(post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links-not sponsored)

I am coming in hot with a sweet treat today – Pumpkin Spice Mini Bundt Cakes with White and Black Chocolate and little leaves on top. THE perfect addition to your afternoon Fall coffee. 

And let me tell you they are super easy. All I did was get a bundt cake mix and I just added the pumpkin spice and cinnamon into the batter and put it into the cake tins. 

While the little cakes cool down you can use the heat in the oven to melt down the chocolate. 

Sprinkle the chocolate on top of your cakes and add a cute Fall treat to it. The leaves I got here are edible paper. Aren´t these stinkin´cute ???

Fall bakery is my absolute favorite. I am going to make pumpkin bread tomorrow and also have planned some pumpkin spice waffles for next week. 

We are driving to a pumpkin garden tomorrow and I am so excited cause I haven´t seen any real pumpkins since last year. So I can finally get started on my front porch decor.
