Apple Crumble For One

Apple Crumble For One

If there’s one food item that just screams “autumn” to me, it’s apples. Not pumpkins, which are a thing for about 2 weeks around Halloween, not cinnamon (which does go well with apples though), but apples themselves. Today’s recipe is an idea for healthy, autumnal dessert for one. Living alone, I can’t always justify baking a whole cake and recipes that make a small portion are incredibly useful.

Quick Couscous Carrot Chicken Stir Fry

Quick Couscous Carrot Chicken Stir Fry

You feel hungry, open the fridge and realise there isn’t much to work with. Sounds familiar? That’s how I came up with this recipe – the recipe that’s now, about 5 years later, a staple in my family. Sometimes made because the fridge is empty and no one has gone to the supermarket, but sometimes made because it’s quick and we genuinely like it.

Red Velvet Cake with Blue Strawberry Frosting

Red Velvet Cake with Blue Strawberry Frosting

Red velvet cake… with a twist? I wanted to attempt making the iconic cake for the first time, after eating it on a few occasions. Sadly, bright red cake with white cream cheese frosting isn’t a realistic, good idea anymore if you’re short on red food colouring and bake for someone with a white food phobia. The twists were a must. I found a recipe and adjusted it slightly – the final result exceeded my expectations!

Iced Berries

Iced Berries

This recipe is one of my favourite discoveries of 2020. Extremely quick and easy to make, and I usually have all the ingredients available at home anyway. Perfect as a refreshing dessert in summer, but I can definitely see myself making it in winter as well.

Strawberry Banana Milkshake

Strawberry Banana Milkshake

Smoothies are undeniably one of my favourite things about summer. Fresh, delicious and healthy, work perfectly as a fix for my sweet tooth. Amongst all the smoothies there’s one I love more than any other. The classic, the one and only, strawberry and banana milkshake.

Healthy Oven Baked Chips – Potato Wedges

Healthy Oven Baked Chips – Potato Wedges

Potato chips  – also known as fries across the pond – are undoubtedly one of the most famous foods around the world. Served in fast food restaurants and often as a side in posh places. Chips made at home don’t taste that great though, especially if you don’t have a deep frying machine. But that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy a delicious potato side at home! This recipe was perfected by my mum and it’s one of my favourite sides. A cross between chips and roasted potato wedges that will enhance many dinner ideas.

Lemonade Ice Cubes

Lemonade Ice Cubes

Of all summer recipes there are two that belong to this season the most. The first one is ice cream – something I’m yet to attempt – and the second are ice cubes. You could say that ice cubes don’t need a recipe – you just freeze some filtered water and that’s it. And that’s true, you don’t need a recipe, but you can use one for a nice, fancy result.

Summer Smoothie

Summer Smoothie

I love seasonal summer fruits. Who doesn’t? Winter gets so boring when the only fresh, tasty, widely available fruits are apples and bananas. That’s why in summer my each trip to a supermarket ends with some fresh fruits in my bag, and a few days later I have a bunch of very ripe fruits that need to be used as soon as possible. And what’s the best way to use ripe fruits? Making a smoothie, of course.

Chicken and Leek Pie

Chicken and Leek Pie

Being in lockdown, I had plenty of time to experiment in the kitchen. One of my favourite recent inventions is this chicken and leek pie. It was something I had on my mind for a long time, but also something I’ve never attempted before – nor anything remotely similar. I had a look online and found a few recipes for a pie of this kind, combined them all, added my personal touch… the results definitely exceeded my expectations.

Simple Cauliflower Vegan Curry Recipe

Simple Cauliflower Vegan Curry Recipe

Is there any food better than spicy, aromatic, warming curry for this cold, miserable winter season? I don’t think there is! This is what keeps me alive in winter, I usually end up eating some kind of curry a few times a week. And what I love about it is how simple and quick it is to make – hardly any effort involved! You can easily multiply the ingredients and prepare dinner for a few days in one go – it tastes just as good when heated up the next day. 🙂
