Oh. My. God. I think I’ve never been more pleased with a dessert than this one. Maybe it’s because I don’t do a lot of desserts. Maybe it’s because there’s alcohol involved.

Last week my Dutch blog (inmyredkitchen.nl) had a special post. Although I started blogging in May last year, on July 13 I was ready to share my recipes with the world.
