Jonathan's Chocolate - Orange super-moist birthday cake

Jonathan turned 5 a couple of weeks ago and he asked for a chocolate cake. This is by far the best chocolate cake you will ever eat. Full chocolate taste, accented by orange on a super-moist based that will blow your mind. Many thanks to Meina for giving me the recipe!

Kruidnoten - small spicy cookes

On December the 5th, the Dutch celebrate the Sint Nicolas package evening, meaning that Saint Nicholas is bringing presents to the whole family. The presents are mostly a surprise and they have a teasing nature. The presents are opened one by one and they are many so it takes a  few hours to go through them.

This year I made my own and the house smelled of cinnamon and cloves all weekend long :)
The evening is normally starting with warm chocolate and speculaas (biscuit), along with other treats such as kruidnoten (tiny cookies) en amadelstaaf (almond paste in filo dough).

Cookies filled with almond paste

Of all the things I bake, my husband eats less than 1/10, so for Valentine's Day I made him his favorite cookies, in a heart shape.
