Chocolate-covered marzipan

Use marzipan to decorate your cakes!



Just for those who don't know, marzipan is almond paste. You can buy it pre-made or you can make it yourself. Either way, it's a little expensive, but it makes great decorations and it's delicious. That's about all I had to say, there are no other pictures in this post at the moment, but you can find a recipe to make your own marzipan under the "basics" tab.

Put halva in cakes



Do you know halva? It is a sesame seeds sweet paste from the Mediterranean region and the Middle East, and probably other regions. Well, I grew on it, yummy. But I never though to put it in cakes until recently. I recommend to try it. It's not the culinary revolutionary idea of the year, but it's an interestingly good mix.

Chocolate and peanut butter dip



It's just about that day when I wanted to eat celery with something sweet on it. I couldn't make up my mind whether I'd melt chocolate and dip the celery in, or if I would go for peanut butter. Well, I took both.

I almost posted this idea in the 'Sweet Recipes' category, but I am too unsure of the proportions. So here it is, in the 'Ideas' section: small sweet bites made out of white chocolate, matcha tea, and corn flakes.

Make a smoothie!



Wherever you are, Spring or Summer is probably making itself more and more ostentatious, so it's time to make a smoothie!
(After thinking about it, I take the "wherever you are" back, as I guess that if you're in the Southern hemisphere, it isn't the case... oh well, you can still make a smoothie to make sure you have all the vitamins you need to start the winter).
