Thank you so much for following me on Babyhedgehogs Blog for the past few years. BHH was fun, but I’m a little bit more grown up now (kinda), and I think it’s time I make that change more evident. So…I am moving to a new blog. The content will be the same, but it will now be under THREE HOUR BRUNCH FRIEND. Rather than deleting BHH or export my old content to Three Hour Brunch Friend, I’m going to leave BHH as an archive of sorts.
I’ve just posted a very easy recipe for profiteroles (aka cream puffs). There will be more recipes and more travel photos — did I mention I went to Scotland, Italy, and Iceland? It’s all gonna be on THREE HOUR BRUNCH FRIEND. :)
A little while back – actually, that’s a lie, a long time back, as in a year ago – Leo and I were in Paris having a blast. Coutume café was conveniently located between our hotel and the Musée D’Orsay. We happily made two trips to the café during our short time. If you are visiting the neighbourhood (7th arrondissement), I do recommend you pop by for your caffeine fix. Trust me, it will be better than the corner café and bitter sludge they serve in brasseries. And bonus, they do café à emporter (coffee to go)!

Amsterdam was not a foodie trip, but I did manage to cross off some important Dutch must-haves during my two nights stay. There was a deceptively light-looking, but incredibly filling bacon and spinach pancake (Pancakes!), the best fries ever (Vlaams Friteshuis), a slice of Dutch apple pie, and Indonesian food (Sie Joe). I regretfully ate a whole street-sized stroopwafel to myself, which obviously left me feeling sick for a while – so much caramel!
Luckily, the weather was bright and warm. I spent most of the time walking between museums (Rijksmuseum, Tropenmuseum, and Foam Photography Museum) snapping as many photos of the canals as I could. Amsterdam is a close second to Paris in terms of a unique architectural identity, it makes for very pretty photos.
