Vegetarian Shepherd’s Pie – The Allergy free Lentil Pie

Vegetarian Shepherd’s Pie – The Allergy free Lentil Pie

What do I mean? Vegetarian Shepherd’s pie?? Just to let you know, we are quite a meat loving family. We basically eat meat every day. Why? Because it is good and a meal without it just doesn’t taste like lunch or dinner. But sometimes it is nice to have just veggies and on those rare moments, I love to combine a lot of different textures, flavors and colours. A very good meat substitute are (nutritionally) legumes. That is why they make you feel full in a good way. This vegetarian shepherd’s…

My Breastfeeding Story – Baby Won’t Eat!

My Breastfeeding Story – Baby Won’t Eat!

This is not a story about what you should or should not do. It is also not about what is or is not good for your baby. It is just my breastfeeding story and how I saw and felt everything. If you are just starting to breastfeed your baby and you feel like crap, maybe it can help you. I have been where you are and it wasn’t all fun and games and bliss all the time. I wanted (like most moms?) to breastfeed my baby from the beginning.  My…

Creamy Cauliflower Soup with Potatoes and Dumplings

Creamy Cauliflower Soup with Potatoes and Dumplings

Let me tell you a little story behind this creamy cauliflower soup recipe… Me and my husband are quite lucky to have very good metabolisms so we can basically eat a lot and don’t get fat which is on one hand a blessing but on the other not very healthy. Our diet got even worse when I had to go on diet without dairy, eggs, nuts,.. so we baked a lot of bread and guess what, we did not throw any away, we ate it all. When we have a…

Best Meatballs Recipe with tomato coconut sauce

Best Meatballs Recipe with tomato coconut sauce

Prepare to read the best meatballs recipe. Ever. Bold claim, ha? But I’m so sure about it, I can say it anytime to anyone. It is not heavy but also not boring, creamy but not fatty, and like all my recipes, it is dairy, nut and egg free. It is tomato season, so it would be a total shame if we didn’t cook a dish with tomatoes as on of the main ingredients. I wanted to make something a bit different, to combine flavours that are all very mainstream but together still serve each…

Dairy free Apple Pie

Dairy free Apple Pie

Yesterday I wanted to bake something sweet because my girl celebrated her 10 month mini birthday (I can’t believe I just wrote this:o I used to make fun of people who talk about mini birthdays and stuff like that, but what the hell, it is a great excuse to make something sweet). I decided to invite all her grandparents over and show them what our little girl learned in the last month. She is quite a show maker. When everything was already arranged and people invited, I discovered I have very limited…

Day Trip to Slovenian Mountains with an Allergic Baby

Day Trip to Slovenian Mountains with an Allergic Baby

This weekend we decided to take a day trip with our baby girl. We weren’t out and about for some time now, because we were also just learning how to cope with food allergies. Eating properly all the time and not being able to eat in restaurants becomes quite a project when you know you need to supply your child with enough proper food for all day, and not having a kitchen at hand all the time. When you don’t have kids or have a child who does not suffer…
