You’re mine Recipe Journal!

10 Aug

I have low EQ.

A few weeks after discovering the Moleskin Passion Journals online I just had to go to BHV to see if they had the series. I just wanted to look. But I found myself walking away from the aisle…with the Recipe Journal in hand.

And so for the last few days, the husband has been sniggering away while I copy recipes from my old Papemelroti notebook onto the Moleskin one. I don’t really care if he laughs at my face – I know he loves every single recipe I write down anyway and if he bothers me more then he’s probably just gonna eat frozen pizza for a while.

I love it! It’s so pretty

The covers are embossed with cute kitchen-y tools and the back has the usual flap for miscellaneous papers.

I don’t classify my favorite recipes the same was as how the pages are organized. But good thing that they included some stickers to change the labels as needed. I don’t usually make cocktails (that’s the husband’s job) so the cocktails tab easily became ‘Bread’. The pages are smooth and I love writing on them.

I have written probably a dozen or so of my favorite recipes and I was so inspired that I made like 4 out of those over the weekend. Just so I can open up my Moleskin journal on top of the kitchen counter and pretend I’m in a kitchen that’s more than 3 square meters. And with the price I paid for it, 19.90€ I think I’m gonna use this for a while lot longer than other ‘recipe notebooks’ I’ve had over the years. Who knows, one day this might be one of the things I pass on to my kids. Asa pa!

But all in all, it’s 19.90€ well spent I think.

Now I’m just trying not to think about the Travel Journal for our 2 week Japan trip. Please EQ, don’t fail me now.


Crushing on Moleskin Passion Journals

19 Jul

I have a major notebook crush on 2 Moleskin Passion journals. They’re so pretty and lovely to touch.

Crush #1: I was on Amazon and was 1 click away from ordering the Recipe Journal. Can you say L-O-V-E? So inspiring to whip up wonderful wonders in the kitchen.


I have an old Papemelroti notebook where I jot down fave recipes. But Moleskin is more sosyal and adult-like. There’s a video pa, taray!


Crush #2: This one I can live without. The Moleskin Travel Journal. I don’t need it as much as the Recipe one but it’s just so chic to pull this out of your bag and jot down travel notes while you’re on the train. And I like the elastic strap – you can stuff as much train tickets/museum tickets/sugar packets from a cafe in Rome where you spent your whole afternoon stalking your favorite CNN bureau chief as you want and it’s still gonna look good and not burst on you.


So cute the video for this one:


If I’m a good girl, I think I’m gonna buy myself the Recipe journal this weekend. As for the Travel one, that might have to wait until we finalize our holiday plans for November – Peru or Eastern Europe?

I’m so excited! Not for the holiday trip but for my cute little Moleskin journals.
