My first BUXday!

Last Wednesday I had my first year at BUX. It was MY BUXDAY! I did ask all my colleagues to tell me what their favorite dishes were that I made for lunch over the past year. The response was great and I had to pick out the most favorite, which wasn’t easy. This is how…

Spinach and ricotta cannelloni

I did manage to make  this recipe for 35 people, but opted for the lasagne version instead of cannelloni. Rolling Cannelloni is far to time consuming for so many people, I thought. But by all means, try it at home when you are with 4-6 persons. I will definitely make this at home for my…

Not So Red Velvet Cupcakes

Thursday Dessert Day! Haha, Nigella says it herself in the Method, the color of the cupcakes turn out not to be so red after all! But they are velvet, for sure. We had some little meringue toppings left so that’s what we opted for, instead of chocolate sprinkles or red sugar. They taste delicious. I…

Pecan and pretzel salted caramel bars (tart)

Panic in the kitchen. Where are the pretzels gone? My colleague Chris could tell me with his eyes what happened. No further questions were needed. So, our salted caramel bars were made without pretzels, but instead we got some almond flakes out of the cupboard to use. This is very very delicious . Not very…
