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

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 [...]

As my exams are getting closer and closer at [...]

Crunchy banana ice cream

Crunchy banana ice cream
I had high fever for 3 days, so today, when it was almost gone, I drank so much water the little shop besides us should refresh its stock, and I was craving for something cold.

Chocolate chip vanilla pudding

I wanted some quick, easy and delicious dessert today. This chocolate chip pudding was ready in 15 minutes and while we had the main course I let it cool in the freezer.

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.

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! [...]

Mango gummy bear

Mango gummy bear
I had some mango juice leftover after the smoothie last night, so I tried the gummy bear recipe I found. You only need to boil the juice and add the powdery gelatine to the pan. It needs to boil for 3 minutes, and then be stored in the fridge overnight. And voila! Ingredients: 5 dl fruit juice 25 g gelatine

Pumpkin-orange jam

Pumpkin-orange jam

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 [...]

Raw vegan chocolate miracle

Raw vegan chocolate miracle
This is the sweetest and healthiest sin I ever committed. The only problem with it, that you have to leave it in the fridge for at least 2 hours to cool properly. Time seems to be stopped when you know, you are 120 minutes away from the perfect chocolate cake. I tasted the crust and the cream when preparing, and cannot eve [...]

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 [...]

Vegan almond-cocoa dessert

Vegan almond-cocoa dessert
We had a charity bake sale in the office the other day, which was a big success. I prepared the traditional 3:2:1 linzer and I am very happy that all of the little hearts and angels were gone by the end of the day. We had more than 20 different type of cookies, among them one, which drew my attention a lot. A colleague of mine is vegan, and [...]

Gluten free coconut biscuit

Gluten free coconut biscuit
  Since I am trying to pay attention to what I eat and avoid gluten, cooking became much much harder. And if it would be only the gluten I am trying to get rid of.. But no, sugar and yeast are also on my black list. And this is a death sentence to a chocolate and sweets addict like me. I go online and try to find any [...]

Gluten-free and sugar-free chocolate ...

Gluten-free and sugar-free chocolate pie
When I first heard from my doc that I should avoid gluten, sugar, yeast, rice, pineapple, peanuts and … so on, I thought he is joking. But since I really try (and sometimes fail) to eat without gluten, sugar and yeast, I have to admit, I can see the positive effects of this diet on myself. But still, I am just simply [...]

Linzer

Linzer
  Linzer is a typical Christmas cookie. It is sweet, crispy and cannot stop eating them. The dough is buttery, crumbly and melts in your mouth, mixing with the joyfully delicious jam.  Very easy to make and for sure they won’t even cool before disappearing from the plate.   Ingredients: 30 dkg whole graine [...]

Fruity midnight snack

Fruity midnight snack
I am seriously addicted to sugar. Or basically anything that’s sweet. I adore chocolate, fall in love with a nice muffin and would write a sonnet for a piece of marzipan cake. In good old times I would eat only a piece of pastry for breakfast, have a chocolate bar for lunch and bake a cute pie or some tempting cookie for dinner. So when [...]
