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.

Grilled pork chops with mustard

Grilled pork chops with mustard

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 [...]

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.

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 [...]

Crunchy banana ice cream

Crunchy banana ice cream

Grilled tofu with avocado cream

Chocolate chip vanilla pudding

Chicken with onion jam

Chicken with onion jam
I made this caramelized onion jam the other day and I felt like its time to free up its space in the fridge. Onion jam has a very unique taste, it goes very well with cheese or meat.

Mashed potato with green peas

Mashed potato with green peas
I like french fries, adore the steak potato and could die for mashed potato. But do not ever give me normal cooked potato, especially with parsley, which is a typical Hungarian side dish. Potato may be my favorite side dish or even main dish, such as patatas asadas or as I learnt from my American friend jacket potato or st [...]

Gluten free 101

Gluten free 101
I try to avoid eating gluten. And sugar. And yeast. Basically everything tasty and good, I thought at the first time when facing this dietary challenge. But I had to realize quickly that I was completely wrong. Avoiding gluten and yeast is easy, but I had (and still have) bad cravings for sugar. I can shovel down a whole M [...]

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.

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.

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 [...]
