Yaaay! I finally took the time (thanks to Masterchef Slovenija) to visit another culinary workshop. And not just any culinary workshop but a workshop with the winner of last year’s Masterchef contest in Slovenia – Darko Klemen. I’ve religiously been following the show and his creations anyway, but now I got to spend 3 hours in his company and all I can say is, he’s so awesome! And all my “classmates” were so cool as well that the workshop ended up being super fun and educational.

Christmas holidays are just around the corner, and with them, Christmas dinner! This means it’s about time I started planning the menu and of course, its most important part – dessert! I’m thinking dessert in a cup this year for some reason. Probably because it looks super cute and is so easy to serve.

I’m so sorry! This post is available only in Slovene because it is intended for Slovenian audience.

Banana Muffins Two Ways {Sugar Free & Flourless}

Breakfast, Dessert | October 25, 2016 | By

You probably would’t believe me if I told you these pretty babies were flourless, gluten free (if you choose your oats wisely) and sugar free? Well, they are, and to prove it, I’m sharing the recipe with you. Two recipes, to be exact, since I decided to divide the ingredients in two and by adding slightly different add ins to both parts, I got two quite different flavored kinds of muffins. And all in just one smoothie maker jar!

Apple Cinnamon Waffles {sugar free & gluten free}

Breakfast, Dessert | October 22, 2016 | By

When someone says autumn, what are the first things that come to your mind? For me (appart from chestnuts, which I looove, by the way), it’s apples and cinnamon. We have the most amazing homegrown apples every year and the smell of cinnamon could easily be one of my favorite. So no wonder I just had to combine them in my breakfast today – in delicious crunchy hazelnut waffles. Oh, and did I mention they are both sugar and gluten free?

Dessert | October 9, 2016 | By

Here in Slovenia (and I dare say the entire region) we have a very different dessert under the name of “hedgehog”. While the basic ingredients are the same, the cookies (or sponge cake) are crushed into “flour” and the dessert is shaped like a tiny hedgehog or a larger truffle/praline rather than a slice. Oh and did I mention my version contains no sugar?

Breakfast | October 8, 2016 | By

You can have toast and scrambled or soft boiled eggs for breakfast or you can have these delicious mini pizzas. I vote for the second option!

Breakfast | September 26, 2016 | By

It’s harvest time! Whether you have endless fields of vines or just a few in your back yard, this is a happy time of the year! We have a lovely little vine in our back yard that kindly provides us the much needed shade in the summer and in my opinion the most delicious grapes in the autumn – concord grapes.

Ah, Sundays! You get to sleep in a little and more importantly, really take your time for breakfast. I love it! During the week, my go-to breakfast are either eggs (in all possible, basic, ways) or greek yogurt with fruits and oats or banana pancakes. But on weekends, I like to get creative. So today I made a whole feast..

Breakfast | September 13, 2016 | By

Bread! Such a delicious edible “plate” for all the delicious treats such as prosciutto, cream cheese, cheese and pickles, and of course Nutella! A homemase, sugar free one, of course! Drooling already? What if I tell you that this delicious, amazingly smelling bread is, to top it all off, even gluten and yeast free and does not contain any unhealthy ingredients.
