Cookies, Brownies & Bars

Peanut Butter Blondie Bars

At the beginning of the year, I undertook a personal challenge – to promote happiness in my life, everyday. And more importantly, to notice what it is that makes me happy. The basic idea is to share a photo of whatever it is that makes you happy, for 100 consecutive days. Sharing can be as public […] Read more…

Thumbprint Cookies

Monochrome has recently ignited my interest. I can’t put my finger on why it has, but it has. And such a phenomenon is surprising for me, as I love colour, colour pop, colour burst, and well, colour. Not to insinuate that black or white are not colours, of course they are, but my palate is […] Read more…

Hazelnut Linzer Hearts

SS loves nutty chocolates (think diary milk with hazelnuts, or fererro rocher). It is rumoured that so deep is this love, there have been instances when a whole box has been depleted, in such a short time as to guarantee some kind of sugar induced rush.   I love this blog, so when hazelnut chocolate […] Read more…

Lemon Bars

This entire facelift of Joie De Vivre, and its attached trials and tribulations, have been significantly overwhelming. It seems like a whole new ballgame, a whole new language, a whole different – rather parallel – universe. It has been a humbling experience, with pressure mounting with very click. To a naked eye, the hours of work that shows in terms of absolute visual progress is incredibly underrated and impossible to comprehend. But yet, I am happy that the hours that have gone into it are now beginning to show their teeth.

On returning from The Great Grover Stomp, the realisation hit me that I had been separated from my kitchen all weekend, and I had all of Sunday evening to fix that little glitch. So after a little bit of light reading, picking this recipe was an obvious choice – it called out to me as a refreshing and citrusy pick-me-up, ideal to indulge in after a day of travelling and a weekend of stomping! Read more…

Popcorn Cookies

There is sheer joy, blinding excitement and uncommonly extreme gluttony involved in cooking with something that you are obsessed with. For me, that’s popcorn. Give it to me buttered, caramel soaked, showered with spices, or with a sprinkle of salt, it’ll take any, in-fact, I’ll take it ALL. So when I came across this recipe, […] Read more…

Christmas Eve Gingerbread Cookies

It’s the night before christmas, and while the rest of the city has massive plans for bringing in the beloved holiday, my elaborate plans revolve around icing these cookies, patiently, lovingly, and most importantly, with tons of colour and glitter! After all, what’s Christmas without the pomp, glitter and mistletoe?!   What appealed to me […] Read more…
