Berry Crumble

In my free time i love to cook, so i've decided to post some quick and easy recipes here because after all, this blog is about everything i love, and as i said i love to cook and love pictures of food, so i figured why not share some recipes once in a while. 
I even have a cooking blog with my bestfriend ( http://donna-dulce.blogspot.com/ ), but it's a bit neglected due to not having enough free time :) however, every recipe that will be posted here, will be featured on the other blog as well.
I really hope i can make this kind of posts a regular thing, but i can't promise anything, all i can promise is that i'll do my best.

So, for this yummy berry crumble you'll need:

  • 2 cups of flower
  • 2 cups of oats
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 150gr butter
  • berries of your choice - around 500gr (i had strawberries and blueberries, even though blackberries are my favorite )
  • 2 tsp vanilla powder ( you can also add cinnamon and lemon or orange zest for an extra flavor )
  • 2 tbsp of sugar
  • vanilla ice cream ( the crumble it's delicious to eat on it's own, but it's best if you serve it with ice cream )

Step 1. Pre-heat the oven on 200 ' C
Step 2. Mix the flower, the oats, the cup of sugar and the butter, until the butter it's disintegrated, and then add half of the batter onto a baking pan.
Step 3: Add the fruit on top of the batter that's in the pan, and sprinkle vanilla powder and two tbsp additional sugar on top of it.
Step 4: Add the rest of the batter on top of the berries.
Step 5: Bake for 45min maximum - you'll know it's ready when the surface of the berry crumble gets golden brown, and the fruit is all melted and bubbly.
Step 6: Serve it with ice cream of your choice ( best being vanilla ) and enjoy.

What do you wanna be when you grow up?


These past few weeks i've been really busy with uni, studying for finals, and i don't have the time to blog... 
However, I am preparing some outfit posts that will be published soon, and until then i just wanted to post a few pictures of me and my friends, having fun with makeup and yes, pizza.
I was pretty busy doing their makeup and i had to take a selfie afterwards just so i can be included in the post, yay :)

But before we continue to the pictures i'd like to say something, that i've been keeping inside of me, but i think it's time to let it all out... Some of you may already know that i am studying dentistry, but lately i've been having second thoughts about it. AFTER 4 YEARS of wasting my time, i'm finally starting to realise that i don't know if applying to uni and studying dentistry was the right thing to do, and i still don't know what i want to be "when i grow up"...
And because not knowing what you wanna do with yourself is pretty hard, i think the right thing to do is try out your abilities in a different fields. For example - call your friends over for a pizza and force them to let you be their makeup artist for the day. :))
Joke aside, i'm seriously considering taking some makeup courses or applying to beauty & makeup school, or, improve my cooking skills. I love to cook and take pictures of food, i also have a cooking blog. So, there's that as well.
I'm not saying that i see myself as a makeup artist in the future, but having one more skill never hurt anyone. :)
All I want is to have a plan B in life - at least for a career.
Moral of the story is - be careful before applying to college/university/whatever, and be 100% sure in your decisions and choices. :)

No more pep talk, here are the photos that me and my friends took the other day. :)

See you all soon with an outfit/beauty related post.






Here are my friends
