Thursday, December 29, 2016

Hi everyone! It's the end of the year, that's why we would like to share with you some of our thoughts. First of all thank you so much for all of you sticking with us, liking our posts. We're really thankful for almost 3k of you visiting our blog! It was a huge milestone for us this year and we hope that in this upcoming year we'll have much opportunities to share with you amazing recipes and other lifestyle posts.

We wish you a Happy New Year, filled with health, success and of course delicious food! Don't worry about what you eat, because you shouldn't be that restricted about it. Food is something you should enjoy, as long as it's balanced within proportions and with working out. It's all your choice.

Also down below we have a recipe for delicious cupcakes for New Year's party, that will take you no longer than 30 minutes (not including baking), but you can easily get your hands on the ingredients and you don't have to worry because everyone will love it. The chocolate-y creations filled with plum jam will just dissolve in your mouth and they're definitely the show-stealer!
