Classic Brownies

Every girl needs a brownie recipe. Because brownies. You really only need about 9 ingredients, of which 1 is entirely optional. Brownies are so universal and so easy to make that we’ve created a real brownie culture, and a culture comes with controversy and debate. There are two major discussion when it comes to brownies….

Pasta Di Mama

This pasta sauce means serious comfort food for me. We were very busy kids and had a very busy mum and an entrepreneurial dad (read always working dad), but dinner was sacred. We would have dinner together every night, at the dinner table. Here’s where we were taught to be polite (speaking while eating was…

The Dairy Free Guide To Pintxos

This week I’m in San Sebastian, Spain. Mostly because of the food. Spain is divided into different regions and all these regions have their own cuisines and their own traditions. The one that San Sebastian is located in even has its own language. Here I was thinking that if I spoke a little Spanish I…

Quinoa Quiche

I love quiche. I love how easy it is to prepare, I love how light it is, I love how much you can do with the filling. Eventually though, the old puff pastry base becomes a bit boring. That’s when I stumbled across a recipe for a quinoa crust. Translating from cups of cooked quinoa…

Special Birthday Apple Pie

We interrupt our regularly scheduled programming for a very special occasion: my mums birthday is tomorrow! My mum is an amazing lady. She raised three kids all on her own, while first going to school and then running her own business. She was always there when we needed her. She would make all kinds of…

Aubergine Pizza Bites

After the craze of the cauliflower pizza base, I started thinking about other vegetables that could serve as pizza bases. Let’s say the brilliance of the cauliflower is a hard one to surpass. I will post my rendition of this base very soon as well (it has avocado and it’s amazing). My next step was…

About Chocolate Popsicles

I feel like I should explain something. I’ve never liked chocolate ice cream. I thought this was just because of the effect that the lactose had on me and that I would like it if it didn’t hurt me so much. I believed that in my whole popsicle journey I should at least have one…

Corn Cakes

These went through quite a few renditions, not least because I used cornstarch instead of cornmeal the first time … Not one of my proudest moments. The first try of these was very dry, but I could see there was potential there. The second try I added the corn to the blender as well. This…

Mango Coco Popsicles

These are loosely based on the Pina Colada popsicles I did two weeks ago. I was looking for something that was as tasty, but a little less stuffed with coconut. I decided to omit the shredded coconut in favour of just coconut milk. I decided on mango because it’s naturally sweeter than pineapple, and blends…

Banana Pancakes

These are my absolute favourite weekend breakfast. I love pancakes, but traditional pancakes are just so full of all kinds of milk (even if it’s dairy free milk) and fats and carbs that I’m not necessarily waiting for, even if it’s weekend. Along came these fluffy clouds of dreamy pancakes. Covered in honey or maple…
