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..
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.
Waffles! It’s been so long since I’ve made them that my poor little waffle maker, patiently waiting in the pantry, was full of bread crumbs and all other sorts dust. Horrible, I know! But its’ day has come again and the dust was gone before you know it, just in time to bake the waffles after the batter has had its’ 10 minute pre-baking rest. Soon, the kitchen smelled of delicious waffles and warm raspberries. Yum!
No time to make a super fancy breakfast? Think again! You can take a simple shortcut and make a batch of amazing, delicious, gluten and sugar free pancakes that won’t feel like they’re so healthy at all. All you need is a protein pancake mix, some coconut butter, water, mascarpone, milk, casein powder and a looot of fresh fruits. Simple as that! And if you have a lovely chef to help you with breakfast preparations, i.e. to make the pancakes, the cooking is so much easier, faster and more fun. <3
I’m one of those people who love to make everything from scratch. It’s just so satisfying, and most importantly, I know exactly what the ingredients are, I know that they are healthy and I know that they are so delicious. Since we’ve been on a quest to find a perfect burger, I decided to try and make one at home in the hopes of it being the best one so far.
If you are one of those people who don’t have time to prepare breakfast in the morning, I have a solution for you. Make your breakfast a day in advance! This recipe will take just a minute to make and will provide you with all the necessary nutrients in the morning – lots of protein, vitamins and antioxidants.
Summer. Seafood. A glass of good wine. Sunset over the sea. Sounds like a fairytale but you can easily make it happen right in you kitchen. You might not be at the beach, sunbathing or watching the sunset, but the flavors will all be there! Best of all? It’s so quick and easy to make that you can even make it happen during the week. And of course, since you’ll be using wine in the dish itself, the dilemma of which wine – red, white or rose – to serve with dinner will solve itself – simply use the type of wine you used in the dish, just maybe use one of a better quality. If you’re worried that the wine will go bad because you only drink it on special occasions, maybe opt for one in a box – they can last up to a month.
Yaaay, spring is here! And with it sunny days, thoughts of summer (and that scary thought of wearing swim suits again!), the return of our determination to live a healthier life and, for some, gardening. And this dessert incorporates all of the above!
You guys may have heard of “potica” – a walnut roll, typical for Slovenia (if not, check out my post with a recipe). It’s especially popular around Easter and I think there is not one household that wouldn’t make at least one at this time of the year. My favorite part about potica is the filling. But not when it’s baked – before, when mom is still making it and I steal it from the bowl. My favorite part about the baked potica are the rum soaked raisins – not everyone adds them but to me, there is no walnut roll without them.
