Easy Penne Recipe – quick and easy for lazy days

Easy Penne Recipe – quick and easy for lazy days

This past¬†weekend was hard for us. Not unpleasant, just very difficult for our organisms. It is Christmas time, and we have one or more pleasant activities scheduled almost every day. But eating food that is too tasty (because it contains quick and efficient taste amplifiers like salt and fat) for more days in a row, is a bad idea. It leaves you tired, bloated and just sick of it. BUT! There are two more festive weeks ahead, and we have to stay strong. Monday is great to slow down a…

Roasted Chickpea Recipes: one sweet and one savory

Roasted Chickpea Recipes: one sweet and one savory

I will be totally honest. Today I bought two cans of chickpeas just to use the brine – aquafaba. But then I was looking at those gorgeous chickpeas and suddenly¬†felt the urge to turn them into something great. Not hummus or soup, which are the most common dishes I usually make with chickpeas.

I was thinking in which category to place this recipe, and decided it is closest to a…

Our little girl is starting to realise what gifts are. And since it is December, presents are all around us. Some are hers, some aren’t, but the ones that she gets, must be absolutely “legal”, meaning they are dairy free, egg free and nut free. I don’t know how it is where you live, but chocolate seems to be something that comes with absolutely every present, and is even totally acceptable as a standalone present. BUT… yes, this story comes with a giant but… If you or someone of your…

Rosemary Bread Recipe – Bread Upgraded

Rosemary Bread Recipe – Bread Upgraded

Is there a better thing to put savoury spreads on than rosemary bread? I don’t think so. Some people even say they spread Nutella on, but… that just doesn’t sound like my cup of tea. Homemade bread is one of the biggest names in “comfort foods” department. Even without any condiments or add-ons. But what if I tell you it is possible to upgrade it with the addition of a very simple and available herb? One that can be found in almost every garden? Yes, I actually am talking about…
