Hello, fellow sweet tooth traveler!

Whether it’s creamy German quark cheesecake, dense chocolate truffles rolled in crunchy hazelnuts, traditional English scones slathered in jam and rich clotted cream or a bowl of fresh berries with a sprinkling of vanilla sugar, I think dessert is awesome.

Hi, I’m Cate, a former expat turned part-time nomad with a life-long sweet tooth.

When I travel, I love exploring local culture through food, especially dessert. When I’m not traveling, I stoke the global flame by making desserts from around the world in my own kitchen.

I used to live in Germany and so outside the sweet treats of the USA, I’m most familiar with European desserts. But I’ve gotten to know the wider world of sugary delights through my travels in the Caribbean, Central and South America, and Australia, as well as my international friends. Be warned: if we ever meet in person I’m going to ask you about your favorite dessert!

Is this a food blog? A travel blog? It’s a little of both. I share delicious dessert recipes from around the world that you can make in your own kitchen, and the inside scoop on the best desserts to try when traveling.

Be sure to grab my two free ebooks: Easy Mini Tarts and European Christmas Cookies.

And check out my Sweet Tooth Travel Guides.

And join me on Pinterest! I have boards full of mouth-watering desserts…plus a veggie and healthy salad board. 🙂

Cate in the Netherlands

I’m smiling because I’d just had a really good Dutch apple pastry. And who doesn’t love huge Dutch clogs? 🙂
