Nut butter lovers this is something you’ll need to try. Story time or how I fell in love with nut butter Let’s take a trip down memory lane back to the year 2007. Little Julia went to the US for the first time for a student exchange. And not only did she fall in love with the country but she also discovered the love of her life: peanut butter! I don’t know just how many PB&J sandwiches I had in my three weeks in California but it were A LOT! So ever since then I’ve been obsessing over peanut butter. […]

Cinnamon Sugar Donuts

Donuts are one of the many things I learned to love in the USA. I mean come on I used to spend a year in Massachusetts the home of Dunkin’ Donuts so I basically lived off of these sugar loaded treats.

I make creamy pudding-like oatmeal and top it with all kinds of fancy toppings when I have some […]

Raw Mini Cheesecakes

raw mini cheesecakes

These raw treats seem to be a never-ending trend on Instagram so I finally had to make some as well. They make the perfect summer treat because you can enjoy them right out of the freezer or let them thaw a little to have a creamier more cheesecake like texture. And I don’t want to hear any of you saying “But it’s almost fall now.” NO! It is not! I will refuse to accept letting summer go so fast. I’m by far not ready yet. I will probably never be ready. So let’s all hold onto summer as long as […]
