I love Easter time. Spring has officially sprung and it is a great excuse to decorate the home in pastel colors. Every year I like to create homemade Easter treats as presents for friends and family. While a Lindt bunny is always a nice little treat, gifting a homemade Easter surprise makes it even more special. And delicious and fun desserts are an egg-cellent way to celebrate Easter with loved ones.
Hello 2015! I’m back and wanted to start the new year with a recipe. Even if you are not into new year’s resolutions, you may have over-indulged (like myself) over the holidays. January is the month, most of us are trying to start or get back into a healthy routine. Instead of fighting my sweet cravings I prefer to indulge in a healthy way. For example, with my raw & vegan Brownie Bars.
It is officially summer now and the hottest days are yet to come. A lot of times when it’s hot outside, I don’t feel like having a heavy dinner, but am also not satisfied with just a salad. For those days, I have a light, low-carb dinner alternative for you: Shrimp (Rock N’) Rolls.
Filled full of veggies, these light shrimp rolls are perfect on their own or with a salad on the side. Shrimp (Rock N’) Rolls are my take on Vietnamese spring rolls. These are more coconutty and juicier. I’ve filled mine with a coconut shrimp curry that I’ve cooked before and added some cashews roasted in dark sesame oil for a bit of crunch.
I’ve got a new kitchen toy: an Airfryer. It is a mini oven that uses hot circulating air to cook food and you need little to no oil. Every participant received one at the Food Camp last week.
At first I was a bit skeptical. Do I really need another kitchen appliance just to be able to cook the perfect fries? But after reading the manual and recipe book I realized the Airfryer can so much more than faux-frying, as I like to call it. It is more like a mini oven making it possible to roast, grill and bake as well. And I got really excited to try it out.
Can you believe that Christmas is only 12 days away?! Are you done with your Christmas shopping? I still haven’t bought all of my Christmas presents even though I started early this year.. I guess Amazon will be my best friend these next two weeks!
