Healthy Banana Pancake Recipe

Healthy Banana Pancake Recipe

This is one of the recipes that saved me so many times already. Whenever I go out with my daughter for more than two hours, we need to bring snacks with us. It is hard to get food for her at restaurants, so I learned to make quick and delicious snacks. Maybe pancakes aren’t your first thought when you think of a lunchbox, but they actually work quite well. I admit, although they are dairy, egg and nut free, they are so delicious I steal one or two from the little…

Healthy Corn Chowder – Dairy free

Healthy Corn Chowder – Dairy free

Okay, okay, I know a chowder must contain milk or cream for it to be a real chowder. But… on a dairy free blog, that just wouldn’t work, right? So please, no bad feelings if I took  dairy out of the equation. Milk is not  good for you even if you’re not allergic, anyway. This healthy corn chowder is of course dairy free, egg free and nut free. Nothing very bad inside, just don’t over eat it, or the corn might give you some trouble, if you know what I mean….

Dairy Free Meatballs – really simple ones

Dairy Free Meatballs – really simple ones

Meatballs are so many people’s favourite it’d be a shame not to investigate them.  The question was how to make them into a quick and tasty dish. Some people make them a big fuss, but there is no need for it. Making them dairy free isn’t exactly a big deal, but most meatball recipes that claim to be very good (and they are) use Parmesan cheese in the meatballs and sometimes even cream, to make the sauce richer. Well in this one, there will be none of those flavor lifters. If you didn’t…

Oven baked Chicken Drumsticks

Oven baked Chicken Drumsticks

Sunday lunch doesn’t have to take the whole morning to prepare. Even though it is some people’s idea that they need to spend a lot of time in the kitchen, I find it is not at all necessary. Yes, this dish is a casserole. And yes it can serve as a one course meal. So what! Sundays are for spending time with your family, going out in the nature, enjoy the sun (or rain)… Don’t get me wrong, cooking is a great pastime, I just think it isn’t worth wasting…

Egg Free Muffins

Egg Free Muffins

Sometimes you need to make stuff egg free. Be it because you don’t have any or because of allergies. Well, in our house, we have allergies, that’s why we need to adjust our recipes in a point or two. This time, I decided to make muffins. And not only are they egg free, they are also dairy free and nut free. Muffins are nice because they taste good, and they really feed you. They aren’t just desserts, they are serious hunger fighters. But can they be just as good as…

Simple leek and potato soup – healthy

Simple leek and potato soup – healthy

Hearty soups that can be served as simple stand alone meals, have always been my favourite. I like cooking. I would even say I love cooking. It is just that some days, I only want something to put on the table and feed my family. It what ends up on the table is tasty, it is a huge bonus. There is no need to munch on bland food when good combinations are so easy to achieve. This simple leek and potato soup is my family’s favourite. I don’t know exactly…

Jam Thumbprints – Baking with kids

Jam Thumbprints – Baking with kids

This is a recipe for very humble thumbprint cookies. I adapted a few recipes to create this one, because they must be dairy free, nut free and egg free. My daughter loves these, but that’s not all – she loves making them as much as eating them. Well, if I’m totally honest, she’s not really making them because she is only one year old. But she gets her little hands dirty and she loves it very much. I think it is important for children to learn that home cooking is…

Slow Roasted Leg of Lamb Bone in

Slow Roasted Leg of Lamb Bone in

Lamb is perhaps one of the nicest meats out there. We don’t eat it very often, because it just isn’t the most common here in Slovenia. Meaning you mostly need to get them from a very big supermarket, or a good local butcher. And we don’t have a butcher in our town, and the town isn’t really that small. Makes me sad when honest local businesses are disappearing, giving their market share to supermarkets. Enough politics, back o food! This recipe is really little work, making it a great meal for…

Vegetable Soup with Kale – dark green liquid health

Vegetable Soup with Kale – dark green liquid health

If you make new year’s resolutions and swear by them for a month or so, and you decided to take on a healthier diet this year, this recipe might be just right for you. If you, on the other other hand, are not one of those who thinks a resolution made on a special date will make a change, don’t stop reading. This soup is tasty, rich, and contains the oh-so-popular ingredient – kale. It supposedly cleanses the digestive tract. I never read deeper on this subject, and I didn’t have…

Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe Without Eggs

Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe Without Eggs

I am posting this a bit late, but it was a hell of a finish of the 2016. Good food and good company all the time. But even so, there were some quiet, stay at home evenings. And on such evenings, a nice dessert or something to bite on comes in handy. Again, not my healthiest recipe ever, but at least it is dairy, egg and nut free. It was my first time making cookies without basic ingredients like eggs and dairy… I admit, it proved more difficult than I…
