It’s been hot in the Netherlands lately! So hot that I started to look for alternatives to my daily hot coffee… Therefor, today a ice cold pick-me-up coffee drink with lots of goodies in!
These crunchy cookies with jam don’t win the first beauty price but boy do they taste good! Perfect with a cup of hibiscus tea a summers’ day.
I have experimented with this cake for a while, and just in time for my upcoming birthday I’m finally happy with the result. Today I invite you to my kitchen table with a delicious strawberry cake with Limoncello cream!
Today, I review the book De Yoga Kitchen (Original title The Yoga Kitchen) by Kimberly Parsons. From the book I also make a really nice apple icecream with warm spices!
Do you want a nice breakfast that makes you happy and going until lunchtime? Then you just have to try my full-grain quinoa porridge with plenty of deliciousness!
Did anyone whisper a word about coming winter holidays? Maybe filled with outdoor activities? Did someone mentioned children (or grownups) with red cheeks and tired legs? Time to serve stacked pancakes with ginger filling and twisted apple!
Soon it’s Valentine’s Day and of course it should be well celebrated with someone you love; a sweetheart, best friend, family, or why not just because you can. Perhaps you want to celebrate the day with a festive dessert made with fried rice paper dressed with lemon curd, sweet fruit and tangerine caviar beads?
Can you really bake a delicious, sweet pie with chickpeas, sweet potato and pumpkin seeds? Yeah! And can you really replace eggs with chickpea flour? Yes! Gosh, I am (and you are) a lucky bird, because that’s what you get the recipe for today. An unusual and festive pie made with good stuff doing pretty good for you during Christmas.
Yes, one more sweet little something for Christmas… A small chocolate truffle with chestnut puree!
In Sweden, it is very common to prepare your own christmas candy. We gather with family and friends and make caramel, marzipan, gingerbread and chocolate for a whole day. We drink mulled wine, do small talks, cooking and trying not to finish all goodies. Finally you roll home with a full stomach and hopefully a bowl of homemade candy to enjoy for Christmas (if you didn’t eat it all during the making of…).
