Looking for a nice little boutique hotel for your Christmas shopping in New York this year? Then don’t hesitate and immediately book a room at the Crosby Hotel. This beautiful place is located in one of my favorite districts-Soho and I love the warm and cosy atmosphere.
I like tiramisu a lot but it’s very heavy and I usually feel like I’ve gained 2 kg after eating a portion. I made this recipe without eggs yesterday (following Gordon Ramsay‘s recipe), it was a big success and I didn’t feel the usual guilt afterwards…
You will need (for 4 persons)
250 g mascarpone
150 ml cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (or vanilla sugar)
3 tablespoons Marsala brandy (Cointreau would work too)
150 ml strong coffee, cooled to room temperature
1 tablespoons icing sugar
16 Savoyard biscuits sponge fingers
Whisk the mascarpone with the vanilla and Marsala and 50ml coffee, until everything is thoroughly mixed together. Whisk the cream with the icing sugar until smooth (just before whipped), then fold in the mascarpone mix.
Pour the remaining coffee into a bowl. Take one sponge finger at a time and dip it in to the coffee fast. Set it to one side and continue with the remaining biscuits.
4 serving glasses with 4 sponge fingers, breaking them in half if you need to. Spoon the mascarpone mix in until you reach the top of the glass. Refrigerate for 20 minutes to allow the flavors to infuse. Dust with cocoa powder to serve.
Beeing Swiss, I know it’s tricky to get dressed when it’s cold 6 months in a row without having the feeling to always wear the same. Here are a few ideas I found on STYLEBOP to mix and match:
down jackets + slim pants + warm boots + cool accessories
Long jackets + big bags + layers + high boots + cool glasses
I just realized, this is my 100th post since I opened my blog!!!… time flies and I’m getting more and more inspired by sharing things with you! :-), today is also my mom’s birthday and I’m really looking forward celebrating with my family. I was in Switzerland the whole week and I am also very happy to spending time with friends in Zürich this weekend, hola Mexican evening and cosy brunch on Sunday!
here are 3 things currently making me happy:
Some bubbly to celebrate…
Chocolate muffin and tartelette to celebrate…
Zara star print shirt that I will dress to celebrate…
I wish you all a wonderful weekend!
I like lace, lace is sexy and also very trendy this year. I’ll probably go with a black top (spotted a cool one at Zara the other day) that I will wear with back pants for either Christmas or the New Years party…
