Soft-baked Chocolate Peanut Butter Swirl Cookies

These giant very peanubuttery cookies are such a treat, and a lot of fun to make, especially if you involve your children in the process. We followed this simple, great recipe from Sally's Baking Addiction blog, and once these babies were baked, they disappeared in less than 24 hours. Quite a competition to our old favourites, The Absolute Best Chocolate Chip Cookies.
These choco-peanut butter swirl cookies are very soft, and if you prefer yours crunchier, just make them much smaller in diameter and thinner - voila. Enjoy !

The 100 Most Influential People in the World by The TIME

Image from TIME http://time100.time.com
Who would you choose, from the global icons, artists, leaders and entrepreneurs, given a chance to put together a list of the most influential people of the year? Earlier this week the TIME magazine published their annual list of the Top 100, and it is fascinating to see how our perception of the current top 100's changes in mere 12 months, and who made it through the test of time. Tiger Woods, Lance Armstrong, Oscar Pistorius, are just a few of those who got to the top 100 in the past few years.. Check out the process of selecting the TIME 100, and let us know your predictions for 2014!
Enjoy the spring outside and have a wonderful week ahead.

Cinnamon sugar muffins with Nutella filling

Happy weekend! It is so nice to get a chance to finally unwind, sleep, read something non-work related, go for a run, BAKE! Here in Copenhagen for the first bake at the new job i made these amazingly easy and yummy Nutella stuffed cinnamon sugar muffins. Highly recommend: they were a big hit in the office. 
And hopefully spring is finally coming to our land tomorrow. We hope it is a sunny and happy weekend wherever you are. Have a good one, and check our Facebook page where we have a much higher frequency of posts as of late.

Dress to Impress

What is your dress code at work? Or, is there any at all?  Do you think it's important to 'dress to impress', when it comes to our work environment? This Smart Creative's Guide to Dressing for Work provides some food for thought, and in hindsight wearing a smart suit while travelling did increase our chances of getting upgraded by the airlines, or getting a better table at a busy restaurant. In our experience, knowing your environment is key to the right dress-code. Here in Copenhagen, at my first day at new job i quickly realised how 'corporate' i looked in my suit compared to everyone else in the office: people were wearing smart jeans all around me. A good alternative to looking too office-Y (and well, boring), is this selection of images from a host of fashion mags: elegant, yet fun and cheerful suits with cool accessories. What do you think? 
Great weekend !
