For the last one and a half week I have been eating like a queen. Every meal I had was made by someone else – either served to me in a restaurant of bought from small food stalls on the street. Almost every single thing I ate was incredibly delicious and even though food in Beijing is much more expensive than in other parts of China, it still is very cheap compared to Dutch prices.

It’s like the easy recipes, but even without the oven time. You actually do put everything in a bowl and mix and except for slicing some strawberries into pieces, that’s all there is to it. So don’t let the fancy name or whisking egg yolks au bain marie scare you off and go make yourself this delicious dessert tonight.

Note to self: Even though it tastes like lemonade, it doesn’t mean you should drink one glass after another. It does make a barbecue way more fun though.

I like this one better than the real one. The advantage of making it yourself is that you can make your baileys as strong as you like.
