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…

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…

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…

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…

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. This time, I wanted a new, snack like dish one can eat with their hands. Well, they do get a bit dirty, but not for long, because these two are so delicious you will be licking your…

Mulled Wine Recipe – Easy one – Best one

Mulled Wine Recipe – Easy one – Best one

I know mulled wine isn’t really food. But does it mean it has no place on a food blog? Definitely not! If anything, mulled wine is, at least for me, one of the primary smells and tastes of December. If I’m totally honest, I know no one who doesn’t love mulled wine. It is true, some people find it too sweet, but that can easily be dealt with, if the beverage is homemade. I was thinking in which category to place this recipe, and decided it is closest to a…

Allergy free Chocolate you can make at home

Allergy free Chocolate you can make at home

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…

Beet Pancakes with homemade rice milk

Beet Pancakes with homemade rice milk

Today was a lazy day. Rainy and grey, and nor I or my husband wanted to make a full three course lunch. Which left us with a option of a hearty soup and an optional dessert. I managed to “make” the husband cook the soup (by the way, it was a cauliflower soup, no where near the one that I cook, but it wasn’t too bad), and I had to make the dessert. Strong soup and dessert are a great combination for a quick lunch. Lately, we try to eat the…

Egg free Banana Bread – that is also dairy and nut free!

Egg free Banana Bread – that is also dairy and nut free!

On this rainy Sunday, I felt a strong desire for a dessert. Into the kitchen, you say? And make something with way too much sugar and bad fats? I have to admit, something like this was also my first idea. But then, an alarm in my head went off! December and its festive opportunities is only a few weeks away. It is much easier to watch what we eat now than then. Back to brainstorming! Something sweet yet not too much, dairy free, egg free and nut free. Bananas in…

What to do with fresh beets? – Cocoa Muffins!

What to do with fresh beets? – Cocoa Muffins!

Yes, we still have some fresh vegetables in our garden. And since beets are as much in season as in fashion, I wanted to try another dish with them.  So, what to do with fresh beets? I decided to challenge myself and make a dessert. It came out nothing short of great, and here I give you – the beetroot cocoa muffins! It sounds and reads simple. Beetroots have a sweet taste and strong red colour. If this was all someone told you about beets, you would think they are a fruit of…
