I forgot to mention some exciting news.
Last fall, one of my pictures was featured in the October issue of Martha Stewart Living magazine.
I know it’s only a small feature, it’s an Instagram picture after all, but it means a lot to me.
I really enjoyed making these cookies last year and my family was happy to devour them.
Have a wonderful weekend,

Last Sunday, my family and I celebrated the Epiphany. The tradition consists in eating a ‘Galette des Rois’ (King cake) in celebration of the arrival of the Wise Men.
Inside the cake there is a little porcelain figurine and whoever finds it becomes the king or queen for the day (and gets to wear a pretty gold crown).
This year I decided to make the galette – speculoos & pear frangipane – myself. I also decorated the table with gold (chocolate) coins and frankincense & myrrh scented candles (representing the gifts that the Wise Men brought with them).
