This christmas I decided to make most of my gifts. From Linen table cloths, knitted blankets to crotchet tops. So why not edible presents as well? I normally bake like crazy during December and give my friends cookies or cakes, but I have tendonitis, and i shouldnt be rolling stuff for some weeks.
So I decided to make Hot Chocolate as a present. You will be wondering: Hot Chocolate? it wouldnt be hot anymore. But I remembered I saw some brownie ingredients in a glass bottle as a present, so why not hot chocolate in a glass?
Because I come from a country that has unique vegetables and fruits, I make the mistake of thinking I cant find in europe many of my favorite ones. In Peru, mostly sundays, we have huge breakfast that turns into brunch and then into lunch. And one of my favorite dishes of those days are "Pastel de Acelga" or Chard Pie.
Lately I got from a friend a whole box of apples and pears from his parents place in Swabia. I have been thinking what to do with them besides compote or juice them all. I always buy spread at my near whole food store but I always wanted to make my own. It takes longer to make but is way cheaper and I can choose which ingredients to use.
Mein thing, this spread is really easy to make and you can use rests of vegatables or fruits you have waiting for you in your fridge... Dare to try things like "Mango and yellow curry" or "Pineapple and red peppers"
What to do when you used egg yolks for dinner and you have egg whites waiting for you in your fridge?. Some days ago, I made Lax Tartare, and I had 4 egg whites waiting for me in the fridge.
I call it a 4/5 eggs, because I use only one whole egg for every 4 egg whites :) And normally I made them after carbonara or tartare.
As you might remember, I was in Provence filming for #Kultour and I made some great turkey with lavender and I was actually in the middle of a lavender field.
During that episode, I showed 2 more recipes with lavender. One is Strawberry Lavender Marmalade and Lavender Butter.
I was so inspired by the marmalades on Stammershalle while visiting Bornholm, that I decided to make this spectacular combination of flowers and fruit.
Super munch! Energy food! We love this new super food we found at Gutta på Haugen. It is calledSuperknask and is produced by a company called Energimat. Two weeks ago, Andrea learned that she has celiac disease. Which means she can't eat gluten anymore. At all. That is pretty heavy news for someone who loves pastry, pasta and pizza as much as she does.
We did a recipe during our paleo month in January that we never posted. It is a healthy porridge - perfect for lazy Sunday mornings. Top it with whatever you feel like. We used freeze dried strawberries and roasted & regular coconut flakes.
Here you can find all my fave recipes, from oldies to paleo and from family secrets to restaurant inspired gems.
