Rotterdam hot spot: Maak Rotterdam


Looking for a cozy spot to hang out during a cold winter day? Maak Rotterdam is a tiny store with the sweetest pastel colored interior.

Megan Hess Table Top Collection

Pannacotta with warm honey-baked figs

I was excited when I found a recipe on the blog Cook me Greek, where he used the figs in combination with a typical Italian dessert, pannacotta, but also gave it a Greek twist by using Greek yoghurt in the … [Read more...]
