Blood orange season is my favorite. There’s nothing quite nice as a fresh red-colored juice to go with the cold weatherweather.

This February, I was spoiled rotten by everyone. One of the perks of just having a baby is people pampering you all the time. Naturally, my favorite citrus fruit was everywhere – in a bowl on the kitchen counter, in the fridge, and *surprise*, in a cake we made using Jamie Oliver’s recipe on this link.

I don’t know if some of you can relate, but some dishes get me confused as to how I will be serving them and how I prefer to eat them. With or without cheese on top? Do I melt the cheese before or put it on top as a final touch and enjoy a stronger taste? Do I mix the caramelized onions in or do I just let them add a crispy taste with each bite? So confusing, don’t you think?

Due to popular demand, I am writing the recipe of a delicious Christmas Tree cake I made for Elle et Vire’s Bake a Smile Christmas campaign. Baking usually makes me happy and peaceful. This time, it was twice the satisfaction because this cake was meant for people in need. Elle et Vire teamed up with Order of Malta Lebanon to help spread the Christmas spirit by baking as many cakes and cookies to offer and make people happy during this festive season.

Nowadays, lots of people in anyone’s entourage are obsessed with gluten-free diets. I’m still not sure how I feel about it. I have done some research and even tried not having gluten for a full month, but I guess I still need more information to make up my mind as to when and to whom is gluten bad.
