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…

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…
