I love banana bread! It’s the best thing to make when you have some leftover, overripe bananas. This version is sprinkled with a handful of walnuts for a delicious crunch! Continue Reading…
Can you believe that you only need 5 ingredients for these tartelettes?! Cashews, dried apricots, oats, fresh strawberries and fresh passion fruit. That’s it! The trick is using ingredients for multiple things. I made the base from cashews, dried apricots and oats, for the filling I also used the cashews and apricots, and then I topped the tartelettes off with fresh strawberries and passion fruit. Multi purpose ;)
A few years ago, when I had only just started blogging, I was invited to a food bloggers event about tomatoes. We had a nice afternoon, during which we got a tour of the greenhouses, an explanation of the different tomato varieties they cultivated, and of course we could taste some delicious dishes made with their tomatoes. Even though this was quite some time ago, there is one thing that I tasted that afternoon, that I can still remember like it was just yesterday: an “Asian” tomato salad with cilantro and spring onion, and the most amazing dressing with umami flavors. It was just simply amazing.
Do you also love those delicious granola bars that you can get at the super market? You know, the ones that have that delicious yoghurt coating, and are filled with dried fruits, and oats, and of coarse loads of sugar? Yeahh, I love those as well!! They are delicious but not very healthy, which is why I decided to try and make them myself!
Every month, the food blog swap is organized by several Dutch foodbloggers. The idea is that you make (and adapt) a recipe from another blogger that signed up. That way, you get to know more blogs (which is always fun), and try out someone else’s recipes. This month I decided to join for the first time, and I don’t regret it at all, because the blog I got assigned to is absolutely beautiful! It is called ‘Share love not secrets‘ by Dutchie Marleen, but she also blogs in English! Yay! Her photography style is absolutely wonderful, just as her recipes, so I would highly recommend you to take a look.
As you might have notices, I am currently on a cauliflower kick! A little while ago I already made this cheesy queso cauliflower dip, and now I have another super delicious recipe with cauliflower for you: sweet & fluffy cauliflower pancakes! Even though they are made with a ‘savory’ vegetable like cauliflower, these pancakes are actually not meant to be sweet. The trick is to lightly steam the cauliflower, and to make sure it is completely smooth before adding it to the batter.
Is falafel a comfort food for you? Yeah, me too! *raises hand* It always surprises me how delicious such a little ball of humble ingredients can taste so good. I love chickpeas in hummus, but other than that I’m often disappointed by chickpea dishes. But then again, perhaps hummus is the king/queen of chickpea products and I’m just expecting too much? Well, I can happily say that these falafels are pretty delicious too. Dare I say even better than some specific kinds of hummus?! (Ever had beet hummus? I’m personally not a fan haha).
