September days come and go..
They are not special. They are not bright. They are not warm nor cold. They just pass.
The holidays are over, the new year is yet to begin.
The fruit trees are coming bear and the leaves start to fall.
Melancholy floats in the air like a big purple cloud. And usually rain drops and drops.

And yet there is something fascinating about Autumn.
Those little berries left, those raindrops on your window after a hot summer.
A promishing start of something new!

Coming back from the vacation house to find a thin layer of dust like a veil covering gently the house, saturating colors and details, I smile.
What was familiar has become etrange within a few weeks..
Or perhaps it is us who change. Our material world resistant, survived our few weeks absence laying there in its denominated position, awaiting for our return.
And once we are back, back to normality, back to our life, it awaits to help us link our previous self with the presence of our future presence..

Going through the house, things here and there..pieces of a personal story..colors, materials, textures.. jewellery, shoes, clothes, books, music tunes..

oh I feel like rearranging my world, preparing for the cold winter days that are coming..!

Taking out my baking set, I bake a few sweet vanilla cupcakes and topped them off with some rich buttercreme, flavored and colored naturally with some smashed berries.
Then barefoot, balancing on my toes I make my way around my suitcases unpacking clothes and rearranging shelves..




This morning i woke up and the sun was shinning bright. That wouldnt be so exciting in itself as a phenomenon if it wasnt for the fact that i m living in the Netherlands and this summer it has been raining almost everyday..

I had nothing for breakfast but a bunch of fresh blueberries..
I checked the cupboards and luckily i still had flour, sugar, some baking powder and oil and a pinch of salt..
That and 30 min is actually enough to whisk together and bake fresh blueberry muffins!
If you have some cinammon.. sprinkle them gently!

Mommy’s tip: Pour some water in the muffin cups before you pour in the dough will help the muffins stay moist!!

Frozen Yogurt is yummie!

Its simple and easy to make and can impress!

Inspired by a strawberry glass dessert I had in France, I come up with yummie isje.
I added liquer, honey and mashed strawberries and berries for a nice flavor. Then crushed some biscuits for the something extra.. layered them and voila!
