Today, I’m presenting you the Queen of salads. My absolute favourite. A fantastic way to incorporate vegetables in your diet but also provide your body with a variety of important nutrients, and – most importantly – feed the hunger with delicious flavours.
It’s been a while since I posted photos of my handmade cards, but fear not! I definitely still make them for all family occasions! But just to have a record of them on the blog – for you, and for myself – I thought I would make a recap in two posts. This is the first of them, with cards I made for my dad’s birthday, my grandmother’s birthday and my sister’s birthday.
Last summer, I was extremely lucky to have been able to go on a holiday abroad. Booked before we even heard about coronavirus for the very first time, it fit perfectly in the short time window when the pandemic in Europe was at its lowest point between waves 1 and 2 and most travel restrictions had been lifted. So today, I’m bringing you to Split, Croatia. A one day trip – covid safe, naturally.
I found it. Years of searching and experimenting and finally, here it is. The best recipe for muffins. It works perfectly every time and the muffins stay moist (sorry to all those cringing at the sight of this word) for a few days. And what’s best is that you can use the base recipe and make it with various extras, and it will work. Berry muffins? Check. Kinder chocolate muffins? Check. Nutella muffins? Check. Bolognese muffins? Che… okay, let’s not go that far. But as far as sweet, reasonable goodies go – you can put them in these muffins and nail it.
A couple months ago I had that sudden urge to pick up a pencil and draw something. Even though I do a lot of crafts, I actually rarely sketch. A detailed sketch is usually quite time consuming and – having a rather short attention span – I get bored halfway through and drop the drawing unfinished. Nevertheless, I felt the desire to draw, for the first time in a couple of years, and I couldn’t resist. Here’s the process, step by step!
Although I have no data to back my theory, I will go ahead and guess that January is potentially the most common time for dieting. After all, who hasn’t, at some point in their life, decided to make healthy eating and working out their New Year’s resolution, in hopes to balance the Christmas overeating? However, I’m a firm believer that a healthy diet is a balanced diet, and radical dietary restrictions can do more harm than good in the long term. They’re also difficult to stick to for more than a few days. So what if I told you that pancakes can actually be part of a healthy diet?
Who doesn’t like a random fun fact? It’s always great knowledge to use in pub quizzes, to throw in a conversation with friends or just to learn for our own satisfaction. Information sinks in so much easier in form of fun facts, doesn’t it? Today, I compiled a list about something I can’t live without – coffee. Grab your latte or americano, sit comfortably and enjoy. 🙂
Happy 2021 dear readers 🙂 I hope after all the craziness of 2020, this new year will bring peace and slowly lead us back to normality.
Christmas is about 11.5 months away, but it doesn’t mean you can’t start gathering ideas for Christmas 2021 baking plans! Today’s recipe is one of my favourite cakes I’ve ever made – mainly because the final result always looks spectacular, and yet it’s really simple to make. A Yule log cake, with a hazelnut twist. Enjoy!
October the 1st marks the start of Halloween season, even if the supermarkets make it look like it’s Christmas already. As much as I love Christmas, I do like to have an autumnal transition period between summer and Christmas. I can’t imagine any Halloween celebrations actually taking place this year, but it doesn’t mean I can’t decorate the house as if everything was normal.
Stir fries are definitely some of my favourite savoury recipes to cook. Can there be anything easier than just frying all ingredients in one pan? I first heard about Thai basil pork from a friend a few weeks ago and it instantly had my attention. I generally love Asian cuisine, but I only ever cooked curry stews. An oriental, Thai stir fry with basil and lime sounded too good not to try it. And so I did.
