Belgian Shrimp Croquettes // Garnalenkroketjes

In Belgium, we call this "Garnalenkroketjes" and commonly filled with grey shrimp or North sea shrimp. They are easy to find in every fish shop or packed in the freezer at the supermarkt.

When I found the recipe I immediatelly wanted to try making it myself. But my hubby said why didn't I just buy it from the store. He said I would put myself in trouble and he wasn't so certain that the taste would be good too. But, as any other women in the world, off course I didn't listen to what he said.. so I still made it myself. When he saw the croquettes done, he wanted to taste the croquettes straight away off couse.. and the results, he put his thumbs up!!! Yaaaiiii, my first homemade Belgian shrimp croquettes were as delicious as from the package or even better. Here now I'm sharing it with you. It's very easy yet delicious.

Christmas Cupcakes

It's holiday season. As usual, I'm busy again behind the kitchen... well actually my daughter kept me busy. She wants me to make her cupcakes with christmas theme so she can take them to the school. Surely, for her I'll do everything.

The cake itself is very easy to make and the decorations I picked up here there from internet as inspirations. Voila, now I got some collections of christmas cupcakes. As usual I use rollfondant for the decoration.

Merry Christmas to you all and have a nice holiday!!!!
