Its called Minimalist Baker and the magicians behind it are Dana and John.  Dana is a wonderful cook and photographer and she follows three simple rules: the recipe can have maximum 10 ingredients, you only need one bowl to prepare it and not more than 30 [...]

Protein cottage cheese bread

Protein cottage cheese bread
  I wanted to come up with some muffin recipe for the mornings, but it turned out that I am too lazy to use the muffin cups (seriously, how can anyone be so lazy??), so I just poured the dough into a bread pan, and as a result had the best sweet bread ever! You must try it, it is gorgeous!  I had 10 slice [...]

Cottage cheese protein donuts

Cottage cheese protein donuts
Hungarians are famous of their love of cottage cheese based desserts. Yeah, I know, it can sound weird to all of you who never ate a nice Túró rudi or a pancake with lemony-vanilla cottage cheese filling, but believe me, it worth a try! I mean, seriously, how could anyone not adore this, it is fresh, chocolaty and just a t [...]

Protein pancake

Protein pancake
Last Friday we were invited to a wedding. A very good friend of mine got married, and the bride looked amazing! She was always pretty, but in the last couple of months she was working out frequently and was following a special diet to get her body toned. And she did a great job! As my exams are getting closer and closer at [...]

Bagel

Bagel
As a special Friday breakfast, I prepared bagel with eggplant- and egg cream. I knew it will be a lot of trouble as you need to first make the dough, then boil it in water and then bake it in the oven. But it is worth all the hassle. It is a dense, chewy but still crumbly bread. Next time I will try to make more fluffy, bu [...]

Strawberry cottage cheese smoothie

Strawberry cottage cheese smoothie
cooking2perfection.blogspot.com I am proud of myself today. I went to cycle in the morning and then to the gym in the evening. Using my magic hoop and drinking only smoothies for dinner really makes a difference on the size of my belly. At least my pants tell me. Tonight I was craving for something very fulfilling, and I just got cottage chee [...]

Avocado apple smoothie

Avocado apple smoothie
fnstatic.co.uk Its time to go to the market, my stock of fruits is almost out. But still I managed to make a very fulfilling breakfast to survive until lunch after a nice 10 km cycling through the Margaret island in the morning. The sun is shining, birds are singing and if you pay close attention, you can see squirrels are relaxing on the tre [...]

Avocado blackcurrant smoothie

Avocado blackcurrant smoothie
www.choosingraw.com This was a very active day. I went cycling in the sunshine, I tried my brand new magichoop (blue spots guaranteed for tomorrow) and went to the gym. I wasn’t very hungry after all this workout, but still craved for a delicious drink. And so I prepared one. Ingredients: 2 bananas 1/2 avocado 2 dl 100 % blackcurrant [...]

Banana avocado smoothie No.2.

Banana avocado smoothie No.2.
babble.com I already told you that I love avocado. I like to just eat it with tomatoes on a nice slice of bread, or use it to make the best chocolate mousse-like filling for the best chocolate cake ever. I already used it in a smoothie which I loved, so I wanted to try something new. Instead of oranges, this time I added 100 % first fruit jui [...]

Banana avocado smoothie No.1.

Banana avocado smoothie No.1.
I love avocado. On bread, in chocolate mousse and in smoothie too. It is such a healthy fruit! The avocado provides a lot of important healthy fat for your body (especially brain, skin, hair, nails) and it stabilizes your blood sugar level. It is a very good to help reduce cholesterol and inflammation throughout the body. [...]

Peanut butter banana smoothie

Peanut butter banana smoothie
peanutbutterdaily.blogspot.com I spent my afternoon looking for costumes, as tomorrow we are participating at my friends’ annual costume party. So when arriving home – I have to say with a huge smile on my face although my feet were dead and I got soaking wet in the pouring rain, but I still managed to get almost everything I want [...]

Chestnut smoothie

Chestnut smoothie
pickfreshfoods.com After a short, but painful run in the morning by the Danube, I needed to just enjoy the silence of the morning and have a smoothie while cooling down. I just found sugar free chestnut puree in the shop yesterday, so I could add a special flavor to my breakfast. I love smoothies and since one of my favorite blog-writers, Szo [...]

French salad with meatballs

French salad with meatballs
I found a paleo meatballs recipe I had to try and of course I needed to make French salad to side it with. I normally would put bread crumbs and minced onion in the meatballs, but bread crumbs are a definite no these days and I was out of onion, so I added carrots to the minced meat. It turned out to be a great idea, you h [...]

Gluten and sugar free apple bread wit...

Gluten and sugar free apple bread with coconut
I received a great book for Christmas, the Practical Paleo book. It is a fantastic book full with good advice and delicious recipes. A couple of days ago I bumped into an apple muffin recipe in it. As I had apple at home, I only needed a couple of other ingredients and some modification to the recipe to come up with this t [...]

The ultimate gluten free bread

The ultimate gluten free bread
Freshly baked bread smells like comfort, home and joy. Since I do not eat gluten and I am avoiding the bakeries, I miss this rich scent. After some disastrous attempts of baking gluten free bread at home, I finally created a recipe which will for sure be used again and again in my kitchen. This bread was inspired by the cheese bites of the o [...]

Gluten free cheese bites

Gluten free cheese bites
I tried to make bread from gluten free flour and it was a disaster. I tried to mix gluten free bread flour with corn flour and rice flour, and still, it was horrible. So I gave up. But last week I bumped into this recipe online, and gave it a try. One portion is enough for 12-15 sticks (which became rolls in my case while [...]

Gluten and sugar free banana bread

Gluten and sugar free banana bread
Oh yeah, avoiding gluten and sugar means so many yummy opportunities! I heard about banana bread earlier, I was even lucky enough to try an original South African recipe out made by my South African friend. I think I stayed over at their place that night, we may had some How I Met Your Mother for dinner with Zsofi after li [...]

Breakfast a la Saturday

Breakfast a la Saturday
Weekend is the miracles’ chance to be happened. Now that it’s rainy and snowy outside, there are not a lot of programs to chose from, but still, our weekends are always full (it may be my fault, I just cannot sit around for more than two hours, it feels like I am wasting the precious time). So this weekend is ag [...]

Gluten free panCAKE

Gluten free panCAKE
      Back to gluten free lifestyle! A panCake (pancake-cake sounds awkward) made of rice flour, gluten free pudding and home made peanut butter. That’s what I call a real breakfast. I went to the gym today before work, and I knew I need some motivation to start the day early. So I made this cake i [...]

Sunday Smoothie

Sunday Smoothie
You can make a smoothie of anything. Vegetables, fruits, juices and milk also play a vital role in the smoothie’s world. I just like to mix 2-3 types of fruit and some juice to take my daily portion of vitamin. Today I was a bit hungover (yes, again, for the second time during the weekend which is unbelievable nowada [...]

Carrot cake smoothie

Carrot cake smoothie
I had some leftover carrot from the other day, not enough to make an easy soup but enough for a delicious smoothie. So I made this drink full with vitamins and flavor to replace dinner. This portion fills two 3 dl glasses, enough for two people. Or for one, replacing dinner and breakfast. Shhhh, M doesn’t know yet! [...]

Ham and cheese bites

Ham and cheese bites
Monday sucks. Everyone knows that. Especially when it’s raining outside, you are snotty and you still have to get out of bed. On days like this I suspect the Universe hates me. But you know what? Sc**w the Universe, I am still having a blast even on a Monday morning. And how can I achieve that? Easy! Just prepare a n [...]

Mango smoothie

Mango smoothie
I should make more smoothies. They are ready in an eye blink, full with vitamins and fruit and they can easily replace dessert or be an essential part of a healthy breakfast. For this smoothie I used only the leftover fruits and juice from the fridge, and it turned out very good. Ingredients: 2 cups mango juice 2 medium a [...]

Pumpkin-orange jam

Pumpkin-orange jam
  pinterest.com I love pumpkin. I use it in pies, muffins, soups or just slice it up, bake it and eat as a treat on winter evenings. Pumpkin is very sweet and delicious. It is also full with vitamins, especially vitamin A, C and E.  It is also rivh is zinc, magnesium and fiber. It’s a shame that it’s season is so short. This yea [...]

Caramelized onion jam

Caramelized onion jam
whatscookingamerica.net I made red onion jam the other day, and it turned out to be such a success that this time I tried the caramelized onion jam. It can be a nice side-flavor to grilled chicken or potato dishes. I also plan to use it in breakfast ham&eggs muffins and salads. Ingredients: 3 onion 3 ts balsamic vinegar 1/2 cup water 3/4 [...]

Pizza

Pizza
When I was a kid and went to visit my Grandparents, I always wanted two things: the Sweet Box and pizza. The Sweet Box was an old food container always full with chocolate bars and candy for us. Always full. Until the time that my Mom put the Sweet Box on the forbidden list trying to avoid us eating sugar as often as possible. That dark era [...]

Peanut butter

Peanut butter
sheknows.com It is hard to get peanut butter in Budapest. You can buy them in special food stores, but only the sugar based versions. I love peanut butter, when I visited the Netherlands I would always have a piece of freshly baked bread with pindakaas and chocolate on. Or cheese, to freak out the Dutch people around. I find so many recipes [...]

Gluten free pancakes

Gluten free pancakes
You know the feeling when from Monday, 8 AM you are desperately counting the hours until Friday, 6 PM? Have you ever promised yourself that on Saturday you will not even cross the threshold of your flat? What flat? Bedroom! You will just lay there, cover yourself with a fluffy blanket, sleep in, read your book which is wai [...]

Oatmeal for president

Oatmeal for president
I had two of my wisdom teeth removed, so for a couple of days, I could not chew nor open my mouth to get a spoonful of food in. So I came up with this breakfast-life saver oatmeal dish, which gives you energy, without chewing or really opening your mouth. I just needed a teaspoon and a small gap between my teeth to feed myself. On the third d [...]

Gluten free bread

Gluten free bread
The first bread I made with gluten free flour was a disaster. The “gluten free bread mix” flour cost a fortune and the bread looked like a rubber. Also tasted like one. So I was more clever for the second time and used corn flour. Shouldn’t have done that. After 2,5 hours of baking the bread, it still had [...]

Omelette du champignons

Omelette du champignons
The whole week I was waiting for this day… Finally Saturday has come! And after waking up and seeing the caresser sunshine smiling at us from outside, my fiancé turned to me and challenged me to prepare an even better omelette than the day before. Yeah, come on.. I am not Monica Geller from Friends, whose favorite co [...]

Ham & eggs muffin

Ham & eggs muffin
It was a lazy Saturday morning, so I decided to make scrambled eggs. Again. But then I found this muffin-shape, which I never use. So I left behind the laziness and started to take time preparing an extraordinary breakfast with the ordinary ingredients. It was very easy, very fast to make and super-delicious. However, I ne [...]

Italia bella e deliziosa

Italia bella e deliziosa
When in Italy, do like Italians do… And believe me, Italians do know how to live. Those gorgeous restaurants and the love of food amazed me! I miss the eating-out habit from the Hungarian culture so much! In Hungary its not an every day activity to go out and eat in a restaurant. Not like in Italy! Even more, I swear Italians actually n [...]

The flavor of skiing

The flavor of skiing
I love skiing. The view of the mountains, the sound of the snow creaking under my boots, the wonderfully unique snowflakes and the fresh slopes in the morning. It is just the best think ever. Winter always makes me happy, I can just stare at the snow for hours and love to dress up warm and take a long walk in the quiet and freshly white fores [...]

Omlette du … everything

Omlette du … everything
I think it was a Monday morning. You know, one of those ugly ones, when you have to leave the warm and comfi bed early in the morning and for what? To start a new week and work again 5 days so you can enjoy the so quickly passing-by weekend. So I decided that this one wont beat us and we do start the week with a nice breakfast.  Ingredients: [...]

Bruschetta

Bruschetta
My fiancé prepares a special breakfast for his team every Friday. So they have a nice chat when eating together and its a good kick-off of the weekend mood. So I normally help him to find out the dish for these Friday mornings and we prepare them together for his folks. As it is summer time and the weather is crazy hot out [...]

But eating breakfast is a great way to get your metabolism working well for the day. When your body receives food in the morning, it tells your brain that you’re going to need to start work [...]
