Chocolate-cinnamon brioches.

I don't really know how to call this but I do know it's delicious. I'm not sure if brioche is the right term but it has more or less the same texture as bread so I just called it that.
I have to be honest though: this is not a quick dessert kind of recipe. I worked on this all afternoon but I love doing this stuff. And in my opinion it was worth all that hard labour. It might sound/be weird but before trying out this recipe I never tried to chocolate-cinnamon combination. Apperently it's a very popular combination, but it had never come to my mind. So I tried it and loved it. I'm definetly going to try it in my hot chocolate next time! But first, here's the recipe for the brioches:

Strawberry-chocolate milkshake.

Strawberries and chocolate remain a classic combination. This recipe re-invents the traditional chocolate covered strawberry but is just as nice! And easy. You only need 3 ingredients and in no time you'll have this delicious milkshake standing in front of you. Perfect for a hot summer day.

Mint sugar.

Adding flavour to sugar isn't something new. You probably have many different recipes of different kinds of flavoured sugar but I just wanted to share my favourite with you. I think mint is one of the best herbs out there and this is a great way to incorporate it in more dishes.
And it's really easy too! All you need is a mudler, a couple of mint leaves and some sugar. The exact measurements depend on your taste, so just give it a go and add more mint leaves or sugar along the way.

The boyfriend has found a job! His first real job, by the way. No student or holiday work, but an actual, for real, everyday job. And that is great of course but it all happened a little sooner than expected. Which is why we needed to squeeze all the things we wanted to do this summer into the few days of vacation we had left together. One of those things was going to the seaside together (which has become a summer tradition of us). We tagged along with my parents and had an amazing day.
Looks like a scenery from a post card, doesn't it?
One of the great things about living in Belgium is that you don't have to drive that far to visit the sea. Which is why it's so easy to go back every year. We go ones a year and it's the perfect place to destress and relax a bit. Just sitting on the beach, listening to the sound of the waves and the sea gulls can be very soothing. That is when there are not too many tourists around. There's nothing worse than a crowded beach, in my opinion. We got lucky and had the place to ourselves. It was amazing and I'm already looking forward to next year.
