As promised, the Valentine posts are over. Relieved? 🙂 Today, I’m coming with another healthy recipe – a simple recipe for carrot crisps. Personally, I’m quite bored with potato crisps and I’ve been enjoying experimenting with other vegetables. I’ve already posted a recipe for sweet potato crisps and today I’m here to present you my carrot crisps.
A while ago, I decided to let my long-forgotten watercolours shine and spent an afternoon playing with them. I created a few simple bookmarks that day and was left with some scraps of watercolour paper which I didn’t want to go to waste. So, without a real plan, I made a few little tags. They’re really tiny – 3.5x5cm – but I think they’d look okay used as gift tags, perhaps?
Happy Valentine’s Day! To all of those celebrating the holiday with your partners – I hope you have an amazing time. And if you’re one of those spending the day on your own (just like me! high five!) – I’ve got something for you! A list of interesting facts about Valentine’s Day. So treat yourself with some sweets, maybe a warm cup of delicious tea as well, sit comfortably, and – hopefully – enjoy this quick little read.
Apples. One fruit available in stores in my country all year round. Perfect both to eat raw as well as to use it for cakes, desserts and other sweet dishes. Today, I’m bringing you a simple recipe for caramelised apples – super quick to make, great for all kinds of sweet dishes: I like to eat them on pancakes, waffles, with rice and sugar or in porridge.
The beginning of February came with another wave of fresh snow. And although the majority of it has now melted away, days are getting longer and we see more and more sunlight – it’s still pretty cold and spring is far away, barely seen on the horizon. And that means one thing – spicy, warming food is still needed and desired. Today, I’m bringing you my trusted recipe for spicy sweet potato stew!
Oh, lovely food. We’re blessed to be alive in the 21st century, living in developed countries where supermarket shelves are packed with an extremely wide variety of products. We’re lucky to be able to choose between different brands and types of food. So how do we choose which item to purchase? I’d highly recommend that we read ingredient lists and make conscious, wise choices. And – hopefully, in the future – force brands to increase their standards. Reading ingredient lists can help you save money, stay healthier and avoid disappointments. Here’s why.
We’re now about to enter the Valentine’s week. Do you celebrate the holiday? And if so, do you exchange gifts with your other half? If the answer is yes but you still haven’t decided what to get this year – I’ve prepared a few ideas! And if you’re one of those cringing at the heart-themed, couples kind of items shown on display of most stores at this time of year – sorry for that! The Valentine cringe will be over in just a few days. 😉
