Whether you need to quickly cook something for breakfast, the guests suddenly stopped by at short notice, or you just want to have a little feast on the weekend in an hour’s time — these recipes will come in handy in any situation. In addition to a short cooking time, cookies will win you over with a minimum of ingredients. You need very little to be happy, and sometimes it is “spoiling” yourself and your loved ones with such a treat. NB: If some types of cookies contain fruits, you can replace them with others of your choice.


Like many people nowadays, I love to explore new places. My favorite type is slow travelling, when you can really blend in with locals and learn about new cultures and languages. But I think there are also perfect times for enjoying freshly baked pastry, a cup of fragrant coffee, and a good movie in the comfort of your own home. I guess I'm kind of a cultural omnivore, and I watch different types of movies, but the ones about art and food inspire me the most!
