I live part-time in the US and part-time in Sweden and every Christmas my mother-in-law makes Knäck and we sit around the kitchen sucking on these Swedish toffees. She makes her quite hard so they're good for sucking on but they may rip your teeth out if you chew! ;)
Play Along: Holiday Sweets! This illustrated recipe celebrates my love for Italy, the magic of owls and delicious star cookies. I discovered this recipe (created by Mary Ann Esposito) many years ago in a Tomie dePaola book, Jingle The Christmas Clown. I try to make these every year for Christmas.
I have always loved Easter eggs with dioramas. My Christmas equivalent is vintage ornaments with a depressed starburst. You just know that something fun is happening in there! The same is true for a cream puff! This panel is a combination of an Aunt’s love for and my fond memories of Hawaii, Grandma’s use of botanicals for holiday and everyday decorating (now taken over by my sister), and the whole family’s taste for pineapple.
“Nonnevotten”, literally translated to Nunbutts! :)
A tasty snack, which exists since 1648 and originates from Sittard (a city in the Southern province of The Netherland). They were made by nuns, who sold them to buy clothes for the poor. The nuns wore an apron and it was tied on their buttocks with a bowtie. In Southern Dutch dialect a butt is called “vot” and a nun is called a “non”, Therefore they are called Nonnevotten.
Nowadays Nonnevotten are very often eaten during the carnaval period, especially in the Southern provinces of the Netherlands.
Credits for the recipe for Jolanda’s Bakhuisje (@jolandasbakhuisje) and used for my drawing with approval of her.
I want to travel to France! For The adventure, and of course (actually in the first place) for the food, for the pastries. Traveling is currently a no go because of Covid 19, but we can still travel in our art!
All through the process of illustrating this, I have been craving croissants and pain au chocolat, and I still do!
These are the perfect breakfast treat and so easy to make. I love to serve them with maple syrup, but you could have them with whatever topping you like. To add extra flavour to the batter you could stir in some blueberries or chocolate chips!
30 years ago a little girl with wild red curls flung sprinkles and red hots all over a cookie tray and was filled with pride at her creations. Every year since, her friends and family have looked for these cookies in the mail on holidays. This melt-in-your-mouth sugar cookie recipe has been in my family since the 80's, and I'm thrilled to finally have the illustrative skills to share it with the world.
