Raspberry delice

An easy and light dessert!

Here is what you need:

125 gr of raspberries
45 gr of sugar
3 x sheets of gelatin (to be softened in cold water in advance)
1 glass of water 

  1. Wash the raspberries and then dry them with a piece of kitchen paper,
  2. Blend the raspberries with a kitchen blender,
  3. Add the water to dilute the puree and then transfer it in a small casserole,
  4. Add the sugar and the gelatin and gently warm the liquid up to allow sugar and gelatin to melt,
  5. Remove the casserole from the stove and let it cool down a bit before pouring in small glass containers
  6. Leave the glasses in the fridge for at least 3 hours 


  • You can filter the raspberry puree (before adding sugar and gelatin) if you want to get rid of the seeds
  • Remove the dessert from the fridge 15 minutes before eating it 
  • Add a couple of drops of a great balsamic vinegar

Comments: GREAT!!! No negative comments this time! :-)

A quick guide to candle making 🕯️

Finally, temperature lowered and I managed to prepare a set of candles for this fall.
Candles are great for any occasion!
Halloween🎃, Xmas🎄, B-days🎂, romantic dinners🥂 or relaxing nights🌃. You can keep 'em for yourself or give them to family and friends as gifts!
If you've never made candles before, but you're eager to try, here you have 10 basic steps to follow.

This is not a comprehensive guide and does not pretend to be a candle-making course.

1) weigh the wax  Do you want to know more about waxes? Follow this LINK
2) Melt it in a double boiler (bain-marie). Stir every now and then...    ⚠ Do not boil the wax ⚠ Neverever place the container with the wax directly on the stove!
3)  At this point, you can add some color HERE, you have a post on candle dyes.

Remember: the final color of your candle depends on the wax too! For example, soy wax iswhite at room temperature and for this reason, it gives back pastel-like colors. A trick to check the final color: drip some melted wax on a…

Fire vibe soap: recipe, tricks and links to technical videos

I have mixed two techniques in order to obtain different patterns, one on the inside of the soap bar and one on the top.

Here you have the links to the original videos showing the techniques: 1) Tilted tiger stripe swirl 2) Multi-mica Taiwan swirl
Since I run out of castor oil, I had to modify the recipe shown in video 1) as follows  😅
Recipe (slow moving trace):
Olive oil (pomace) 70% Coconut oil 22.25% Palm oil (organic) 7.75%
Note that the palm oil I buy from The Soap Kitchen 'carries Organic Certification and comes from Columbia. It is not produced on land that has been taken from the Rain Forests, nor are there any Orangutangs made homeless. Our suppliers do use 'ethical' methods in their production (we have actually visited the site). Our Columbian suppliers are members of the RSPO (Round Table for Sustainable Production ofPalmOil).'
