Baked 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.

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!

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.

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.

Summer smoothie in a glass

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.

Frozen yoghurt bark on a plate

Frozen Yoghurt Bark

Summer is just around the corner now and even here, in London, we’ve had a few hot days already. Having ice cream every day is tempting, but probably not the healthiest choice – at least not store bought ice cream packed with sugar. That doesn’t mean we can’t have a nice, frozen treat whenever we feel like our body is beginning to melt. Yes, you heard it right – you can have a frozen treat every day and stay healthy! And here is how.

Chocolate breakfast quinoa with cherries

Chocolate Breakfast Quinoa

Many of us are stuck at homes under lockdown, and it’s important to look after ourselves and eat healthily. But healthy doesn’t have to be dull and flavourless! Today, I’m coming with a healthy breakfast treat recipe. Perhaps slightly less healthy than a smoothie from leafy greens, but still made with natural ingredients, low in fat and sugar, but packed with protein and macro elements. And most importantly – delicious!
