Only a couple days left until the start of December and before you know it, Christmas is here! I love the bright colors, comforting scents, joy and excitement that accompany us throughout December. Ideally, it brings loved ones together and we get a chance to share some special moments. Sadly, this is also the season of family members arguing a lot, couples fighting, everyone buying things they don’t need, creating tons of unnecessary waste, and, of course, consuming immense amounts of food.

Ahhh November. So much to love: The changing colors, rough winds, crisp leaves and rainy days, moody skies, and cuddling up in bed regularly. Despite my love for fall, I often feel like my immune system has a hard time keeping up with all those wet and cold days and my declining energy level. That’s when I ususally get into my soup making mode. I could eat soup all day every day and it’s one of the healthy comfort foods I really crave.

I have never met a chocolate cake I didn’t like. But I do have a special fondness for moist ones with nuts and bananas in them and this tweaked version of my mom’s recipe is my favorite. It is my go-to dessert, great when you want to bring something special and homemade to the office for a birthday or tea and cake afternoon delights at home. Seriously, everyone loves this cake and the best thing is, it stays yummy for days (when wrapped properly). I have adapted the recipe to fit my organic and fairtrade taste and it has only become yummier in the process: flourless organic chocolate cake heaven, here we come!

Valentine’s Day can be everything from amazingly romantic, lonely, annoying, special, a day like any other, or materialistic and wasteful depending on how we spend it. When it comes to gifts for Valentines the choices range from super cheesy to truly unique and lovely. We all prefer the latter, of course. I especially love gifts that make the person I am with (or myself if I am single and gifting myself) feel special and that express how unique and precious they are to me. So this Valentines I’ll share one of my all-time favorite diy projects and you will be amazed at how easy this one is: DIY scented marbled paper. Romantic, affordable and easy: My kind of gift!
