Super Bowl Roundup

Today’s post is not about 1 recipe. As Super Bowl is approaching, I thought to make a list of the best party food MsM has to offer.   Being Italian, I do not follow football… but I enjoy some good soccer.  And a good spread during a game!  In this post I am going to give…

Kitty Cat Bread Buns

I made these savoury Kitty Cat Bread Buns for my daughter’s 5th birthday party and they were a hit.  Not only did they taste yummy, they also looked quite cute, which is always an important factor, especially for a kid’s party.  The brown dough is made with cocoa powder, but rest assured that the cocoa powder…

Kitty Cat Doughnuts

Kitty Cat Doughnuts

I saw these on the internet while searching for ideas for my 5 year old’s kitten themed birthday party.  Apparently these Kitty Cat Doughnuts are quite popular in Japan.  So I set on a mission to replicate them at home.  I have a little confession to make.  I don’t like doughnuts.  Or so I thought. …

Cheese Mouse on a Cracker

Cheese Mouse on a Cracker

Today’s post is not really a recipe, but I thought this Cheese Mouse on a Cracker looked too cute not to have a post of its own!  All you need to make these “mice” are cheese spread triangles, black sesame seeds, salami and… crackers off course!  I made these for Georgia’s 5th birthday party.  The theme…

I made these cookies for my daughter’s 5th birthday party.  If you follow this blog, you will already know that the theme was “kitty cats”.  These cookies are really quick to make.  I used a chocolate cookie dough that is not too sweet and that is very easy to work with.  I always make cookies…

Georgia's 5th Birthday

Georgia’s 5th Birthday

On the 1st my youngest daughter turned 5!!  I cannot believe she is 5 already and that in January she will be going to “big school”.  Georgia is definitely ready for it… mum, not so much.  She’s the baby of the house and seeing her grow up so fast is both amazing and scary.  She…

Glacier Fusion Daiquiri

Glacier Fusion Daiquiri

I must admit that I love all rum based drinks the most and Daiquiris are among my favourites.  They are easy to make (and to play around with) and I really like the fruity varieties (I do have a thing for sweet drinks).  For my daughter’s Frozen birthday party, I wanted to prepare something for…

You may not know this, but I have always had a fascination for Scandinavia.  I have visited Denmark a few times and I have been to Finland and Norway too.  Growing up, I have had my share of Scandinavian food and I must say it is delicious.  One of my favourite dishes is definitely Smørrebrød…

Elsa's Plait

Elsa’s Plait

I love savoury dishes much more than sweets, so I always make sure to have a few savoury options at parties as I know kids will need something more than sugary treats.  I made this bread plait for Victoria’s Frozen party, to simulate Elsa’s long plait.  It’s a soft bread filled with ham and mozzarella. …

Rock Candy Lollipops

Rock Candy Lollipops

I made these lollipops for Victoria’s Frozen party.  I wanted to make some candy that resembled ice and these seemed like a cute idea.  I actually loved the way they turned out.  They really looked like ice and they were rough and sparkly.  Just beautiful.  Rock Candy is very easy to make, but it requires…

I made these Snow Cupcakes for my daughter’s Frozen birthday party.  She loves cupcakes, so they are always on her party menus… This time, I wanted to make them a little different.  You see, I love making cupcakes because I think they look really beautiful and you can play around with so many flavour and…

Like all little girls her age, Victoria has a fascination with princess stories and the latest Disney movie is no exception.  She fell in love with Frozen (and so did her little sister)… movie, songs, costumes… everything.  She knows parts of it by heart, I am not kidding!  So for her 7th birthday party, she…
