Learn to love tea with mulled apple juice.

Learn to love tea with mulled apple juice.

Are you a tea lover? Are you a tea drinker? If so, your kids are probably more likely to start drinking tea as well or will do soon. The process of brewing, the comfort of holding a warm cup and possibly the biscuit or little chocolate that goes with it, is just too appealing not to be noticed.

How to make Fried Cauliflower Rice

How to make Fried Cauliflower Rice

Surely you have heard of cauliflower rice before, but have you made it? If not, I can assure it is pretty easy and fairly quick as well. I make it exactly in the same way as how I make my basic fried rice. I just swap the rice with the ground cauliflower, same ingredients, same spices, very basic. If you make this on a weekday night for dinner and you want it to be ready really quick, I recommend you…

If you take the time though and you look at the ingredients, you would see they contain up to 50% of honey and sugar mixed. So half of what is in that package is sugar and honey! I can’t…

Risotto with peas, broad beans and asparagus

Risotto with peas, broad beans and asparagus

Risotto with peas, broad beans and green asparagus actually is a typical spring recipe. I created this in the spring when all these vegetables where in season and available at the farmers market. I just never got round to post it on the blog. As I was looking at what to cook this week, I came across my notes for this lovely risotto. I realised that apart from the asparagus this might just as well work in the autumn. The…

One-tray recipe: Salmon and leek

One-tray recipe: Salmon and leek

Avoid too much washing up One-tray recipes like this salmon and leek one are just the best for busy weeknights. I love cooking and baking as you know, but about every other day, I regret all my enthusiasm as soon as there is another pile of washing up to do. I ask myself: Again!? Really? Why exactly did I have to do this? Why couldn’t I just get some of it in the shop earlier?? I usually do remember when and…

Tortilla pizza with figs and feta

Tortilla pizza with figs and feta

Food Photography Finally a new recipe on the blog! I have been working hard on my food photography skills lately. Practice makes perfect they say, so that is what I have been doing, practice, practice and practice some more. Funnily enough that doesn’t make it easier nor quicker. I can easily spend a good few hours on a photo now. Hence, not much activity on my blog lately.

Celery and apple crackers

Celery and apple crackers

Celery is one of those vegetables that are tricky for many children. How many kids do really like celery? I do wonder! Most adults do, so when does it change and how? How can we help kids to learn to like it? That is the question I ask myself all the time and for many vegetables. Celery is just one of them, but definitely a tricky one.
